    From the publisher:

    For many years the focus of fear and disgust, the anus is actually one of the human body's most wondrous creations—elegant, efficient, and richly supplied with pleasure nerves. However, stress and ignorance can turn the anus and its functions from a source of delight into a painful disability. What's needed is an owner's manual—and here it is! Join therapist and sexologist Jack Morin, Ph.D., on this tour of the anus, complete with information and exercises to open the door to new sources of comfort and gratification. You'll unlearn habits that can cause everything from hemorrhoids to chronic pelvic pain—and, if you choose, learn new ways of achieving solo and partnered pleasures through this humblest of portals.

    Come As You Are: The Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life

    $ 16.99

    This book is a must read for anyone who has ever wondered "why does my body behave this way?" or "why doesn't my arousal work the way I want it to?" We don't often declare favorites at Smitten Kitten, but Come As You Are is undeniably one of the best books available today about the science of arousal and pleasure. The tone of the book is wonderfully approachable and conversational, and makes it easy for even the least scientifically minded of us to understand the intricacies of the human nervous system. And although the book focuses on cisgender women's sexuality, there are acknowledgments and careful word choices throughout the text that make it accessible for queer and trans readers. With a firm grounding in scientific study and a friendly, truly down to earth voice, this book stands out in the genre of arousal and orgasm guides.

    Designer Relationships: A Guide to Happy Polyamory, and Optimistic Open Relationships

    $ 15.95

    From the publisher:

    Contemporary relationships are in a state of rapid evolution. These changes can and should empower people with the opportunity to develop partnerships based on their own sexualities, understandings, and agreements. This makes it possible to create what Kenneth Haslam, founder of the Kinsey Institute’s Polyamory Archive, has called “designer relationships.”

    Designer relationships may encompass: people who bond emotionally but not sexually; people who agree to be non-exclusive; single people who have occasional lovers or friends with benefits; multiple partner configurations where long-term bonds exist among all or some; partnerships in which people are kinky and that make room to explore kink.

    The possibilities are limitless, and thinking about a partnership as something people can craft allows for flexibility and change. Relationships can open and close or have varying degrees and kinds of openness as circumstances demand. In the context of a designer relationship, decisions are made mutually, consciously, and deliberately. Best-selling authors and nationally known relationship experts Patricia Johnson and Mark A. Michaels are exemplars of this life choice, and have studied polyamory for over 20 years. This book explains exactly how you and your loved ones can design your own life and love.

    Female Ejaculation and the G-Spot

    $ 17.95

    From the Publisher:

    The first edition of Female Ejaculation and the G-Spot was meant to raise awareness about the phenomenon of female ejaculation, and to resurrect a now lost wonder and mystery surrounding this aspect of female sexuality. It empowered women who already ejaculated, taught women who wanted to ejaculate how to do so, and introduced this new possibility of sexual pleasure to women who did not know that they could ejaculate. The second edition of the book promises to do the same, and more. In the past ten years, attitudes regarding female ejaculation have changed. It is no longer a shocking phenomenon that few people have heard about, let alone experienced. Today, it is much more common for couples to know about female ejaculation, and to even integrate it into their sex lives. There has also been more research on female ejaculation and the G-Spot and advancements in the field of Sexological Bodywork. Many workshops now provide education and assistance to couples who want to improve and deepen their overall sexual experience.

    Sundhal takes advantage of this developing climate of knowledge regarding female pleasure to expand her already comprehensive book. The second edition of Female Ejaculation and the G-Spot includes even more testimonials from workshop participants, an interview with a sexual healer, and an expanded list of outside references, resources, product makers and tantra teachers. She summarizes and explains new information that has come to light regarding the G-Spot, paying special attention to the renamed and researched PC muscles (now expanded to the Pelvic Floor muscles), and new Find, See and Feel techniques for ejaculating with a partner. She has also added new information to her section on men’s role in female ejaculation, updating findings on men’s sexual tastes, citing how many men now want more emotional expression and connection in relationships. 

    With its new features meant to enhance Sundhal’s original empowering and healing message regarding female sexuality, the second edition of Female Ejaculation and the G-Spot promises to help readers, once again, appreciate the wonders and healing potential of female ejaculation.

    A comic book for kids that includes children and families of all makeups, orientations, and gender identities, Sex Is a Funny Word is an essential resource about bodies, gender, and sexuality for children ages 8 to 10 as well as their parents and caregivers. Topics covered include:

    • What is sex?
    • Privacy, safety, and respect
    • Boundaries regarding nudity, talking about sex, and touch
    • Assigned sex, gender identity, and gender roles
    • Names and functions of body parts
    • Talking about the word “sexy”
    • Protecting yourself against unwanted sexual touch and abuse
    • Crushes, love, and sexy feelings 

    Much more than the "facts of life" or “the birds and the bees," Sex Is a Funny Word opens up conversations between young people and their caregivers in a way that allows adults to convey their values and beliefs while providing information about boundaries, safety, and joy.

    From the publisher:

    From ornately decorative to excruciatingly stringent, Japanese rope bondage is an art which has developed over centuries of martial and erotic practice. Now, in a gorgeous large-format fully illustrated book, accomplished Japanese-born educator and practitioner Midori shows step by step how to achieve beautiful and exciting Japanese bondage on a variety of genders and body types.

    Each chapter starts with a spectacular, tasteful full-color photo of the finished bondage pose—harnesses, hogties, standing and bent-over poses, and more—then goes back and explains with text and line art how each rope and knot is placed to achieve the final result. Readers can use the detailed instructions to experiment safely and erotically with their own partners—or simply enjoy viewing the pictures of Midori's expertise.
