'Erotic fiction has been languishing on the top shelf for years, but a new generation of woman writers is moving it from the fringes to the literary mainstream' Observer Magazine 'Her hilarious, yet often fond descriptions of her clients are brilliant ... This blog-book is grittier than most ... Her adult diary is a hoot ... Written in her witty style, coupled with some extremely explicit entries, this book is a must for blog-book fans, acting as a sex guide, cautionary tale and raunchy memoir' Chloe Cummings, Erotic Review 'Shhh...sex sells. The British buy books about sex ranging from traditional erotica to practical guides and 'posh porn' published under the guise of art. These writers can be seen as part of the new generation of feminism, with women feeling more at ease writing about sex' Bookseller 'An intriguing mixture of autobiography and advice on sexual technique' Sunday Times
