What did you like most about The Ethical Slut?
Much of the writing is done as if you were being spoken to. So naturally, when narrated as an audiobook, you often are being spoken to directly. A wonderful book and the perfect subject of an audiobook.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Ethical Slut?
Listening to the narrator describe how she fell in love with a woman who at first intimidated her.
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I very often laughed out loud in public. Quite embarrassing.
Any additional comments?
A great book. Even though it may be targetted at women, there is no reason a man cannot enjoy it and glean a great deal of wisdom from it.

Inspirational and thought provoking. Wish I'd read it sooner. Narration was also excellent. The true stories were particularly helpful and I believe I'll approach relationships, intimacy and sex differently (healthier!) as a result of this book. I'm going to buy the hard copy to to refer back to, to do the exercises and to share with partners. Thank you

Where does The Ethical Slut rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
The open mindedness, sex positive approach, and enthusiasm was enjoyable.
What did you like best about this story?
Good solid read, with enough examples to use in everyday life.
What didn’t you like about Janet W. Hardy and Dossie Easton ’s performance?
Having a younger, more modern adaption would have enhanced my experience. Their performance was good, my extreme reaction was more toward the grandma-like reading from Hardy and Easton - describing hardcore sex acts in detail to 20 and 30 something’s leaves a little bit to be desired.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Hire a much younger staff and make it relevant to our modern time.

I don’t want anyone to misinterpret this review, this book is great! – all the information herein is solid, well delivered, and 100% on point. I have been in a relationship for 8 years where my wife and I love to take women home for 3 way sex, bondage and discipline, top/bottom sex – or whatever you want to call it. This book is specifically geared to relationships like these. Some of the ladies we hook up with end up staying around for a while because it just works - some don’t. This book is very good at looking at the dynamic of relationships like these and also very good at offering advice for this type of situation.My critique lies in the delivery, and approach. No offense to the authors who also speak the audio commentary (read the book to you), but the experience is like having my hippy grandmother tell me very detailed stories about how her and all her old friends used to get it on back in the day. A lot of the material doesn’t translate well to someone who is, say in their 20’s or 30’s; it just doesn’t – I feel our generation is way more open than those of the past. So even though, all the information in the book is absolutely great advise for a kinky relationship or a vanilla relationship. They push good, open values that stress on the importance of communication, it's just weird having it told to you by an older person. So I would suggest this book to everybody – just be ready to have it read to you by a nice old woman who loves to use terms like cunt, cock, & ass fucking.

This is an amazing book for anyone and everyone engaging in relationships or exploring sexuality. It provides advice, ideas, guidance, and an incredibly sane, healthy perspective for connecting with others and ourselves, in contrast to a culture that associates shame with so much of that exploration.
