Format: Paperback
This book is very slim -- there are only about 100 pages in it and much space is taken up with line drawings. It's understandable that the book is so slender since there really aren't volumes of information to impart on the subject, but I really wish the book had been longer. The book does covers the information very well and thoroughly. There is no way to make the information sections of the book longer without artificially stretching it out. As it is, vaginal fisting is a topic best suited to an article, not a full-length book. There is a section near the end of the book with poems and stories about fisting, written by people other than the author. I would have enjoyed it if that section had been expanded, even if it went so far as to take up half the total volume of the book. I was hungry for more information about fisting and would have liked to have seen more on the table at my feast of information.
But even if the reader is disappointed by the quantity of written material, they will not be disappointed by the quality. The author quite obviously knows what she is talking about and has produced a very clear and concise guide to an exotic activity that is one of the less understood forms of pleasure sharing available to adventurous and exploratory couples. Addington discusses safety information, hand positions, necessary and desirable supplies to have on hand, and even more obscure topics such as fisting after a hysterectomy. There is one personal account by a woman who tried fisting but did not enjoy it. I would have liked to have seen more varied accounts, especially stories about difficulties (whether overcome or not) and problems with fisting.

Format: Paperback
There is a difference between sex and really GOOD sex, and that the difference demands deep understanding of what the other person is feeling, physically and emotionally. Interesting sex is about communication, using rhythm, time, sensation, and mood as language. It is amazing and frustrating how often otherwise appealing people don't get this. The woman who wrote this book gets it. She does an excellent job of describing why one fists or gets fisted in the first place. As aggressive as fisting sounds she makes it very clear that it can be, in truth, an incredibly intimate experience, requiring tenderness, empathy, and patience. If you already are into it, if you're thinking about getting into it, or your partner wants you to think about getting into it...then buy this book.

As an up-and-coming investment banker, I work under extreme pressure. My partner also makes her living in a stressful position. Together, we like to relieve our tensions by exploring ways to spice up our sex-life. It's difficult to find guidance and inspiration for such private matters, but Amazon.com has offered a wealth of options. I was looking for a new idea to try in the bedroom, but I couldn't put my finger on it.
Then I found a wonderful book.
When I first came across the cover, I thought it was the abandoned idea for Spinal Tap's latest album "Smell the Glove." To my pleasant surprise, it was a wonderfully written, illustrated manual on the art of vaginal fisting.
Ms. Addington presents sensitive, tender explanations and answers some delicate questions, which went a long way toward making us both feel much more at ease about our predilictions. Some feminine viewpoints also let my partner see the practice from a different angle.
If you've ever wanted to explore a private, new fantasy, this book will open your mind (among other things).

Format: Paperback
Our feelings about this book are very mixed. On one hand, it's nice to see that a book has been written about our favorite hobby (it's the only one available as far as we know). But on the other hand, the book did leave us with a feeling that it's poorly written, greatly padded (despite being only 102 pages), and not very authoritative.
To start with, we found the author's writing style very gushy and irritating. Deborah Addington looks on fisting as a religion, and can't seem to get over saying again and again how wonderful it is. All well and good, but for us she is preaching to the already-converted, and the preaching together with the long-winded, gushy style became very tiring.
Even more annoying was the fact that the author tries to make you think that she really knows what she's talking about, but for us she came across as an enthusiastic devotee, and nothing more. There are a few quotes from doctors that she has known, but no indication as to whether these doctors have any relevant knowledge, and a few of her opinions and recommendations are, in our opinion, simply wrong.
For example, on page 3 it says "Who the hell is this Addington woman, and why should I listen to her? Because she has a college degree, and because she absolutely loves to...". My goodness, the credentials of a real expert! No mention of which college she went to or what subject the degree is in.
Then there's the question of how much real content the book has. As we read it, we kept wondering when the "good stuff", the real information about fisting, would start. It finally comes in chapter five, "Fisting, the adventure", which is 20 pages long. Great, now we're getting somewhere, we thought, only to discover that chapter five is the last chapter in the book!
