A while ago I needed a place to sleep in London. It’s funny how I suddenly don’t have a place to sleep anymore in this lovely city, after living there for 5 years. So I had a look at AirBnB and I found Isabel, who didn’t allow animals to be eaten in her house. That was like music to my ears and so I booked her room. She turned out to be lovely. She told me she is an author and I always love this as I love writing myself. She wrote several books already, but her newest one was ‘Sensation’. I wanted to support her and so I decided to buy her book. On the front it said ‘Adventures in sex, love and laughter’. Definitely something I’m interested in, I mean, who isn’t? And so it happened that I started to read..
So where do I start.. first of all, I think that this book is very easy to read. Isabel writes in a very easy-going way, almost as if she’s telling you this all in a face to face conversation. I like that. The real reason I wanted to write a review about this book, as it has nothing much to do with veganism per say (apart from that Isabel herself is vegan!), is that I think every woman should read this book. At least every woman, because I’d also recommend it to men, the ones that respect their woman and want to please her in the best way possible. Even though the ways that are described in this book aren’t your thing. Even though some of the things will surprise (or even shock) you. I’m sure you can get something out of this book that is helpful. For example, I think that every woman will appreciate her body more after reading this. I think that a lot of woman don’t know their own body very well or they don’t dare to speak up about what they like. What is such a shame, because your body is capable of so much. This book is a journey of discovering your needs, in some cases your self-worth and for some it might simply be the start of the journey to find their clitoris (or for men finding their partners.. very important!). Because yes, if you don’t know where it is.. definitely go exploring!
Personally I hate the taboo around sex. I’m always very open (minded) about it and not embarrassed to talk about it at all. This book is the perfect book to break that silly taboo. I’m sure that (almost?) everybody loves sex and is having sex, so why not be open about it? I don’t mean that you should have sex with a 100 different partners or that you should tell everybody all the details of your sex life. I mean that you shouldn’t be embarrassed to want pleasure. It’s a human right and it gives joy. Speak up about it.. especially and most importantly, to your partner!
