    The lesbian sex book that rocked girls from coast to coast. Here's what lesbians really do, not what the sex cops think we ought to do. Cruising, packing, fisting, G- spots, porn stars, dildos, vibrators, anal sex, group sex, sex with straight girls, dental dams, lube 'n latex, sex during pregnancy...and more!

    Would you consider the audio edition of Susie Sexpert's Lesbian Sex World to be better than the print version?

    I haven't seen the print version but I am so glad that I started with this one because her voice and personality is what makes this material all the more fun. I listened to this on a cross-country drive and it was very engaging & fun - it had me laughing out loud on more than one occasion.


    What about Susie Bright’s performance did you like?

    Everything! She sounds like a fun & approachable person.

  • Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

    Heralded as an instant classic of fantasy literature, Maguire has written a wonderfully imaginative retelling of The Wizard of Oz told from the Wicked Witch's point of view. More than just a fairy tale for adults, Wicked is a meditation on the nature of good and evil.

    What did you like best about Wicked? What did you like least?

    The voice actor was fantastic - he did a great job with all the different characters. I thought that the story didn't hold together very well - it could have used some editing - like the weird gratuitous sex club scene, what the heck was that about? The story started off really well - and just lost steam. I'm not interested in reading the follow-on stories.


    What about John McDonough’s performance did you like?

    He was great - all the characters were very well done.


    Could you see Wicked being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.

  • Some Girls: My Life in a Harem

    Story

    A jaw-dropping story of how a girl from the suburbs ends up in a prince's harem and emerges from the secret Xanadu both richer and wiser. At 18, Jillian Lauren was an NYU theater school dropout with a tip about an upcoming audition. The "casting director" told her that a rich businessman would pay pretty girls $20,000 if they stayed for two weeks to spice up his parties. Soon, Jillian was on a plane to Borneo, where she would spend the next 18 months in the harem of Prince Jefri Bolkiah....

    Would you try another book from Jillian Lauren and/or Tavia Gilbert?

    Probably not.


    What could Jillian Lauren have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I swear my friend Crazy Jennie told me this exact same story about being solicited to go to a harem in the Middle East and all about white slavery when we were in college in 1990 - so many of her details sound like Jillian's details and it makes me wonder how much of the book was fictionalized.


    Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

    The voice actresses performance was great!


    Do you think Some Girls needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    I'd like to see something that was a little less fictional.

    It’s the early 1980s—the country is in a deep recession, and life after college is harder than ever. In the cafés on College Hill, the wised-up kids are inhaling Derrida and listening to Talking Heads. But Madeleine Hanna, dutiful English major, is writing her senior thesis on Jane Austen and George Eliot, purveyors of the marriage plot that lies at the heart of the greatest English novels.

    Might try Middlesex but the story for


    What could Jeffrey Eugenides have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    More depth in the characters - make me care about them more. They were just not that sympathetic. They were all kind of whiny, self centered and boring.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, absolutely not.

  • The Help

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    What did you love best about The Help?

    The use of 3 different narrators for the 3 different main characters was fantastic - I really enjoyed the quality of the voice actors and that made the story very enjoyable. I listened to it while I drove across the U.S. from California to Ohio.
