The Good Vibrations Guide: The G-Spot
The Good Vibrations Guide The G-Spot
by Cathy Winks
Paperback: 72 pages
Publisher: Down There Press (February 1998)
I have reviewed several G-spot Guide Books and How-to Videos on G-spot exploration over the years. “The Good Vibrations Guide: The G-Spot” by Cathy Winks is a fairly comprehensive guide in a very slim volume which is easy to read. I read it in a couple of hours. While short and sweet, it didn’t leave any important information out about the G-spot and also gave credit to the original sources. The references were important (to me) because there is so much media hype, misinformation and myths surrounding the G-spot out there, having reference to the original studies validated my own views on the G-spot. Which means, this book is the closest you can get to the source of G-spot truth, without reading a tone of academic studies yourself.
Does the G-spot exist? Where is it? How do you find it? Why can’t some women find it or enjoy it? All these questions and more are answered in this book.
While the book is a bit dated (published in 1998), much of the information is still valid, although I’m sure (hopeful!) that many studies have been done since then. Cathy Winks is a very good writer and explains things in easy to read terms, without talking down to you. As an employee of Good Vibrations Store in CA for many years, she also is well educated on the subject of the G-spot and female sexual response.
- Just the Facts, Ma’am – Female Anatomy
- Nothing New Under the Sun – Historical and Contemporary Views
- Exploration – How to explore your own or lover’s G-spot
- All About Ejaculation – Self-explanatory
- Tips, Toys & Techniques – Mainly about types of G-spot Toys
I also enjoyed this book because it exposes the media hype and lets the reader know that not every woman will enjoy G-spot exploration, and that it shouldn’t be a competition to find your own, and not to feel inadequate if you don’t. It also emphasizes the journey over the goal, which is essential with any type of sexual exploration, especially the G-spot.
The Exploration section as well as Tips, Toys & Techniques could have had more information or perhaps even some “Exercise Work-outs” for the reader to try out various techniques as well as better illustrations like Deborah Sundahl’s “Female Ejaculation and the G-spot” book has. But, then again, Sundahl’s book is twice as thick and very esoteric, based more on personal experience than straight scientific facts.
All in all, I’d say that “The Good Vibrations Guide: The G-Spot” by Cathy Winks is probably one of the best books out on the subject if you interested in the plain facts. It would be nice if they came out with a new, updated edition. Then again, in the world of female human sexuality, it takes a long time for the scientific community to come to any real consensus as to the mystery that women’s sexual anatomy presents. Too bad they wouldn’t just ask us!
If you want to learn more about the G-spot, G-gasms and Female Ejaculation, or are exploring this on yourself, I highly recommend this book. Although you may find information about the G-spot on the internet, much of what you read is not referenced in actual fact, and the writer’s agenda is often sales over educating you.
