Tickle My Tush by Dr. Sadie Allison is a proof positive that good things come in small packages. It may look small and a bit thin but its 134 pages are filled with useful information for those new to anal play or seasoned player like Mrs. Peg and myself. In fact it promises “Mild-to-Wild Analplay Adventures for Everybooty!”
If you are new to anal sex, or need to hear the sales pitch, you may find the first five chapters informative. If you are more experienced they are still worth the read, but you may not get anything more than a few chuckles out of them. Dr. Allison gives all the necessary info in an easy to read and humorous playful way.
For us, things started getting really interesting at in Chapter 6, Sensual Booty Massage. In just eight short pages Dr. Allison provides great information on technique, positioning, what feels best, and how to keep things fun and naughty. And after all, isn’t that what sensual massage is really all about?!
Chapter 9 is all about fingerplay! This chapter is, again, super informative. There is information on technique, depth of penetration, how to move your fingers, how many to put in there and a few positions that both partners will enjoy. This chapter is especially useful for digital prostate massage although there are plenty of ways to make her feel good too.
Chapter 8 is for the orally adventurous. Enough said.
The ninth chapter focuses on penetrating her. For the penetrating partner, there are tips on making sure she is ready to receive. There is also a page for her that provides a few pointers on receiving. The peggee may find these equally useful. Finally, there are a few more suggestions on what to do once everyone is comfortable and ready for some real action.
Chapter 10 is an oddly placed comparative essay on the p-spot (or ‘he-spot’ as she likes to call it) and the g-spot. Personally I would have made this Chapter 6 but that’s just me. I don’t know that we learned anything here, but it’s here for those who may need a primer on the subjects.
Chapter 11 is all about another one of our favorite subjects: Hot BUTT TOYS! This is really a pretty good guide to the types of toys that are out there, what you may like about them, and what to consider when shopping for them.
Of course what book on analplay would be complete without a chapter dedicated to our favorite topic: PEGGING! Chapter 12 gives you everything you need to know if you are knew to strapon play. There are tips on harness selection, positioning, why it won’t make you gay and even a bit on harness for use on her.
While there are some positioning guides throughout the other chapters, Dr. Allison devotes all of Chapter 13 to nothing but positions. There are positions for receiving with ease. There are positions for giving with ease. There are positions that we just hadn’t considered before. And of course you can get a good laugh out of some of the names she has given them.
Dr. Allison wraps up with some F.A.Qs, or Frequently Assed Questions in chapter 14. The brevity of this chapter speaks to the thoroughness of the previous thirteen chapters. I am not sure these points couldn’t have been worked in elsewhere, but there it is.
I don’t think Tickle My Tushie is the best sex ed book out there. It is, however, a fun read. It is also a light and humorous way to introduce the possibility of anal play into a relationship.
Have fun and play safely!!
