A sexually savvy collection of blog posts and original material.
In her debut, Jones proves that she has plenty to say about the modern heterosexual woman’s romantic and sexual life. She’s experienced marriage, divorce, a few single years, a remarriage, motherhood, and everything that accompanies each of those stages of life. On her blog, Twisted Broad, Jones addressed topics as varied as when a man should disclose the size of his penis and whether vaginal tightness has much to do with sexual pleasure. In a chapter titled “A Divorced Woman’s Quest for a Tight Vagina,” she writes of receiving a procedure that she deems to have been more than worth it. However, with that said, she also writes, “A truly great sexual relationship doesn’t actually need a tight vagina or a large penis, or the other way around. All a great sexual relationship really needs is healthy communication. Period.” As Jones’ blog gained followers, she says, she began to receive specific requests for advice, which she gave with the caveat that she was writing only from personal experience. She gave frank, honest opinions to the people who wrote in, and reading her replies, compiled in this book, is instructive. It’s likely to appeal to straight women and men who are curious to know one woman’s opinions about sexual topics; indeed, the book notes most of her blog’s initial readers were men. Jones’ chapters tend to wander among a wide range of topics in a book ostensibly about sex and intimacy, including her thoughts on stepparenting, and she doesn’t have much to offer readers whose romantic and sexual lifestyles aren’t in the mainstream. However, the work is still a solid read for those who want to open new conversations about sex between themselves and their straight partners.
A friendly look at sex and love for a specific audience.
