"A gender-transcending tale of sex lives that manages to be philosophical, poignant--and a great bit of naughty fun." --Publisher's Weekly, starred review
"Though the authors' confessed desires and stories are often illuminating and hilarious, the anthology is most fascinating for all the contradictions it lays bare." --San Francisco Chronicle
"A 'hottie among hotties.' Derrow knew what she was doing--depth, variety and intensity of personal revelation was clearly something she valued." --Los Angeles Times
