The article presents information on the book "The Whole Lesbian Sex Book: Second Edition," by Felice Newman. Self-proclaimed sexpert Newman's book is a comprehensive guide to queer female sexuality, put together with the help of a panel of 450 other sexperts and hundreds of questionnaire respondents from all over the world. The 20 chapters cover every aspect of sex, including lesser-explored issues around gender identity, sex parties and public sex, and lesbian sexual health. The book goes far deeper than just the physical side of sex by also covering the emotional and psychological sides of sexuality, including information on how depression and taking anti-depressants can affect libido.
