Touch Me There
(A Hands on Guide to Your Orgasmic Hot Spots)

by Yvonne K Fulbright Ph.D


Book Review by Ashley Lister



Touch Me There is one of the most intelligent books I’ve read about sex in a long time. Yvonne K Fulbright Ph.D. is a renowned sexologist as well as being the author of The Hot Guide to Safer Sex and Sex With Your Ex… and 69 Other Things You Should Never Do Again (Plus a Few That You Should). She has appeared in magazines, newspapers and TV shows offering sensible but practical guidance and advice on how to make good sex better. Touch Me There is her latest title and continues Yvonne’s stylish blend of non-didactic tuition to all matters sexual.

In the first chapter Yvonne explains that the book is intended to offer the necessary "recipe" to transform any reader into a "Master Chef" of the bedroom. I could be coarse here, and make some tacky joke about "enjoying a sausage roll," but this book impressed me with its thoughtfulness and broad spectrum of influences, so I’m not going to descend to such puerile levels of schoolboy humour.

The main thing I enjoyed about Touch Me There was the way Yvonne blended her understanding of physical and biological responses with an accessible introduction to holistic disciplines. In covering areas like the clitoris she explodes the myths that have been built on the foundations of this favourite pleasure button, explains the true nature of the clitoris, and goes onto offer guidance on how to get the best out of it. More than that, Yvonne also offers suggestions on how to stimulate clitoral arousal through acupressure, with illustrated advice on how to obtain adopt a series of yoga positions that are most beneficial for clitoral stimulation, and all of this sensibly tempered with sexual health considerations.

The repeated references to yoga, acupressure, reflexology, Taoism and Tantric sex bring the book firmly into the realm of the twenty-first century’s new age underpinnings. And the blend works wonderfully well. In our current climate where we accept the findings of science, but prefer to have them reinforced by the wisdom of more established (if slightly esoteric) practices, Yvonne seems to have found the best way to explain how things work, why they work, and how we can make them work better.

Yvonne also manages to address a variety of sexual practices in an honest, open and non-critical manner. She offers suggestions for a wealth of fun activities that include oral, anal, fisting and the fun that can be had with sex toys, and all with unintrusive reminders that sex should be fun and safe.

However, the main strength of this book is that it illuminates the erotic and erogenous potential of the typical male and female hot spots. These are not just confined to our familiar sweaty bits and Yvonne takes time to explore the erogenous potential of areas as diverse as shoulders and scalp, right down to my own personal favourites.

And Yvonne clearly knows what she is talking about because she repeatedly backs up her statements and arguments with references from renowned studies and highly regarded experts. At the back of the book she also offers an extensive list of resources and recommended reading for anyone who wants to expand their knowledge on any of the included topics.

And, now I have the recipe to be a "Master Chef" in the bedroom, I’m ready to serve any hungry woman who thinks I can satisfy her appetite. (Please contact me through the address at the bottom of this page to book your main course).

For those who would rather learn these tricks for themselves: Touch Me There is an extremely intelligent book and a must have for anyone intelligent enough to want to make good sex better.
