Although I posted a review on Amazon, I wanted to say more. A helluva lot more because the word limit did not do my thoughts justice. However, according to Amazon's rules (which is fine) the word count was limited.
Imagine my frustration.
The Sex Journal: Love and Lust title alone is what piqued my curiousity. Susie Bright's previous works have yet to disappoint, and she has continued to impress me with her recent creation. This journal offers quotes that stir awake the sexual memories and allow for you to reflect back upon your most cherished moments. In addition, it allows for the imagination to be richly fertilized with prompts and quotes from famous sex positive people.
When I first received the journal, I felt like a teenager again. My earlier diaries held all of my secrets, and I always felt safe knowing a lock guarded my written thoughts away from prying eyes. When I saw that the journal had a lock and key, I laughed a little because I remembered one of my secrets I wrote in one of my old diaries- I love Jason Smith. Yes, I know he didn't love me back, but hey ... I was in sixth grade at the time. However, now that I am older, the secrets I have are no different. Well, a little. I don't love Jason Smith anymore, and I have no idea where he is now. (I hope he doesn't stumble upon this blog.)
What seperated the Sex Journal: Love and Lust from my other journals were the prompts. Susie included passages throughout the journal to help the journalist step back into their sexual memories, whether they were sweet or not, and revist those times. Some prompts, I blushed because they forced me to take an honest look at my sexual experiences. There were a few that I wanted dead and buried and others, I wanted to re-live again, and again, and again... Also, there were some that I never tried before - and you can bet your bottom dollar that I'm going to try something freaky <--I know that your freak may not be my freak, but my freak is my freak.
Here is an entry I did about corsets (yes, I know I am a corset whore, but hey...)
I plan on filling this journal with countless entries and some of the prompts have got me thinking ... I need to try that... And at the risk of repeating myself, I must say:
The Sex Journal is for the person from all lifestyles that want to add a squeeze of sexual excitement to their lives. This journal is for the teenager who wants to explore new shades of their sexuality. For the single person who wants to stretch their boundaries and taste a new life. For parents who find themselves in a sexual routine and want to learn more about their partner (after all, it is secrets that make you more mysterious). And, it is for those who have already done every sexual activity to reminisce a life they once had.
