talk to your child or teenager, this book is for you. Good Vibrations has been a leader in making
sex better for people of all ages, genders, orientations, and bodies since its doors first opened and
it continues to blaze trails with this excellent book. Highly recommended!”

“It is absolutely no surprise that Good Vibrations would publish the ultimate how-to, why-to,
what-to book about sex. For decades, people have relied on them for products and advice that
was dependable, progressive, and above all, human. I plan to recommend this book to many,
many patients–the shy ones, the bold ones, and the curious ones. There’s something in here for
absolutely everyone.”

as women; cisgendered and transgendered alike are included, addressed and celebrated
in THE Sex & Pleasure Book. Dr. Carol Queen and Shar Rednour provide advice to the whole person
in many aspects of the human experience.”
Hernando Chaves PhD, Licensed CA Marriage and Family therapist

“When I was a young woman, my mom didn’t have the courage to talk to me about sexuality.
Luckily, she did have Our Bodies, Our Selves on the bookshelf. THE Sex and Pleasure Book will be
that guide for women of all ages to embrace our bodies and our passion. Pleasure is our birthright.
Thank the goddess for Carol Queen and Good Vibrations!”
