Do adults play with toys? You bet they do. Every day, in every part of the country, millions of your friends, neighbors, and relatives enjoy sex toys. Sex Toy Tales takes you into their bedrooms--as well as their living rooms, boardrooms, kitchens and toolsheds.
The torrid fiction, tender reminiscences and true confessions in this unprecedented collection come from women and men of all ages, backtrounds and sexual tastes. Each story celebrates the exciting and liberating possibilities of erotic accessories--from tried-and-true vibrators and dildos to blendes, fishing lures and a computer joy stick. By turns romantic, passionate, humorous and playful, these stories of uniquely pleasurable encounters are unlike any erotica you've ever read before.
Sex Toy Tales delivers an entertaining, arousing read, not just for the ten million Americans who buy sex toys each year, but for all who relish imaginative, innovative erotica and welcome new ways to expand their sexual horizons.
Anne Semans lives in San Francisco with her 5-year-old daughter. She has co-authored several books with Cathy Winks, including The Mother's Guide to Sex (Random, 2001); The Woman's Guide to Sex on the Web (Harper San Francisco, 1999); and The New Good Vibrations Guide to Sex (Cleis,1997).
Her interest in accurate sex education was sparked by the nun who taught eighth-grade religion class and counseled her students to "think of a hamburger when you find your thoughts straying to the impure -- it will distract you." Suspecting that God really didn't intend for us to choose between two things as wonderful as sex and food, she made a point of learning as much about sex as she could. She's spent the last 15 years educating herself and others about the wonders of sex, primarily through writing and working with two women's sex toy stores, Libida.com and Good Vibrations.
Semans believes that all people, including children, deserve information about their sexuality in order to lead more fulfilling lives, which is what inspired her newest book, The Mother's Guide to Sex.
