Sexual Reality marks Susie Bright's return to politics and passion, jealousy and risk - in an intimate look at the human sexual condition. Chapters include: "The Story of O Birthday Party", "Strip Tea: A Most Unusual Tea Party", "Undressing Camille Paglia", "Egg Sex: Pregnancy and a Mother's Sex Life", "Blindsexual: What Every Bisexual Needs to Know", and "When 'No' Means 'I Didn't Know It Would Be Like This'". Erica Jong says: "Susie Bright is the genuine article; she proves the point that the muse screws, that all creativity is sexual, and that the juiciest people write the most delectable books."
I'm not sure how to categorize this book so won't even try. It's enough to say that I enjoyed it. The sections about Lynnie were my favorite. They gave me a glimpse into a society I've never really had contact with in my life. But I've known people like Lynnie so found it fascinating.
This book should really be ready in conjunction with her memoir "Big Sex Little Death" and "Mommy's Little Girl: Susie Bright on Sex, Motherhood, Porn and Cherry Pie" (obviously another book hard to categorize). I've listened to her "In Bed With Susie Bright" series here on Audible for years so found it interesting to discover more os her "backstory" through these other books.

If we are perfectly honest, a poor Judge and have not examined ourselves; then others will view us as dishonest. Susie strolls comfortably through chapters of her closely examined life, with great judgement. Her conclusions naturally hold great weight. The literary style or abilities may not be Hitchens, Self or Amis, however honesty and good judgement in sexual matters must be the hardest truth to find and communicate. This is Susies genius.
