365 Sex Positions aptly shows that there are many different ways for couples to connect ... a different technique for each day of the year. It's an astoundingly elegant production that is as utilitarian as it is beautiful. It's the perfect size at 6.5" x 5.5" (16.6cm x 14cm) so that it fits well into any nightstand or small, weekend travel bag. At almost an inch thick (1.8cm) and paperback it possesses the feel of a sturdy yet truly usable sex manual. It's easily searched and should stand up to the hundreds (or thousands) of times that it gets rifled through. Each page features a single photograph that goes from edge to edge filling up the page. The number (between 1-365), the name of the position, and a short easy-to-read description are embedded on each page. The text is poetic but essentially sticks to the factual information - which is a good thing. The featured heterosexual couples are showcased using a few accessory items such as a chair, a bed, an exercise ball, a table, and a stool. A vibrator also makes an appearance. But there really is nothing in here that the average household will not have or cannot provide a suitable substitute.
As the title suggests there are 365 positions presented. Many are variations of the standard missionary, rear-entry, and cowgirl positions but there are so many delightful moves that are unique unto themselves that boredom is an impossibility. Positions such as Ball Game (31), Full Throttle (97), and All Hands of Deck (231) are centered around genital play. The Flat Back (51) and Sword Swallower (146) cater to oral sex. Fantasy Island (189) is based entirely around him stroking and caressing her. Some like the Handstand (11) and the Amazing Arc (54) may prove to be too acrobatic for some. Fans of the classic 69 position will absolutely adore the variation titled, Sweet Seat (219). There is something here for every taste and athletic level and while some positions may not be the end-move for the session almost every position will prove to be at the very least an inspiring starter.
Aesthetically speaking, this book could not be better. It's lighting is very mood-oriented and features just enough darkness and shadow to make it interesting without hiding any of the essential aspects of the given position. Some manuals feature photos that seem overly clinical but this book hits just the right chord. And the couples featured are absolutely lovely without appearing overwhelming. They are easy on the eyes for sure, but the photography ensures that they are not centerpiece. It's about the position itself, not the personality of the subjects involved.
Forget all the other self-help books out there, if you want a REALLY happy New Year, this one actually shows you how to accomplish it.
