Having made a success and a series of cogent points about the complexities of Mistress-hood in her first book, Married Men Make the Best Lovers, Ruth Dickson gets down to basics and tells us a lot more than the obvious about the ins and outs of lovemaking.
With her classic, breezy, entertaining style, she instructs the uninformed and enlightens the already educated with a bit of science and a lot of blunt truth about the hows, whys and special tricks of sex for fun, in or out of wedlock. The fact that she firmly believes that unwed sex-play is more fun than the married variety doesn’t detract from her wisdom and her expertise. From “The Nitty Gritty” (both his and hers) to “The Other Side of the Bed” and from the beginning explanation of “Why Are We Doing This?” to the grand summation of “What Is Sex, Really?” Dickson gives an advanced course in the art of love and the pleasures of sex in all its permutations.
One of the first of many sexual instruction guides that followed in its wake, Now That You’ve Got Me Here, What Are We Going to Do? was the frontrunner of the genre, dispensing basic information and much more in this amusing, highly readable work. Readers of either sex will be the richer and the better informed for taking an opportunity to learn at the feet (and other areas) of a Master. Or, more accurately, Mistress.
