A mother and daughter giving sex advice? Why, the very idea...is fantastic! Veteran sexual-freedom pioneer Susie Bright and her world-wise 21-year-old daughter make one hell of a team and set this book apart from others of its kind.

I am a person who is a sucker for advice columns. Addicted to everything from Dear Prudence to Dan Savage it was inevitable I was going to love this book. I read part of this out loud to a friend over some wine and it made for some hilarious and sometime serious debates!
I can't have a relationship like this with my highly religious mother but I am fairly determined to have sure easy conversation with my daughters as they grow.
Highly recommend this book for either dipping into or reading cover to cover- enjoy!

I was very curious about this book as the concept of a mother/daughter team writing a sex advice column was interesting to say the least. It turns out however that it is a sad comment on our society that this type of column should be curious at all. I wish with all my heart that my daughters are able to have this type of relationship wth there mom. (Is it too much to ask that they could be so open with their dad?) But enough about the groundbreaking nature of their column....
The book is a great read. The questions they answer are relevant and the frankness and "back and forth" nature of the answers makes the reader feel they are a very lucky friend sitting in the Bright's living room. The don't ramble at all and get to the point offering a broad range of solutions. The answer on the Paxil question was probably the longest, but the nature of the problem deserves a comprehensive answer and they did an excellent job.
Highly recommend this to mothers, daughters, sons and fathers!!
Thanks Susie and Aretha
