Book Review : Urge

June 25, 2002

As a practicing sex therapist, Dr Gabrielle Morrissey was always referring her patients to books to help them have a greater understanding of their various performance problems and sex-related issues. Acutely aware of the ever increasing range of titles available in the sex-self-help genre, Gabrielle dreamed of the day when she could recommend a single, easy to follow bedside companion covering sexual health, relationships and fascinating tit bits about bits, bobs and what to do with them. Rising to the task, Gabrielle put her years of clinical experience (and the odd personal anecdote) to good use wrote her own book. ‘Urge’ is a saucy little number designed to entertain, inspire and educate on all things down under? Jam-packed with sexual trivia, fascinating sex terminology and hilarous/amazing/just plain scary personal accounts, this book is a must for everyone who has ever had sex!Ever wanted to know the average length of a penis? You’ll have to get ‘Urge’ to see if he measures up! Want to know more about multiple orgasms, one night stands, celibacy, safe sex, fantasies and sexperimenting? This is the book for you. But be warned, it’s not for the faint-hearted? ‘Urge’ is a no-holds barred romp through the bedroom and out into the wild world of truly liberated, luscious and loving sexual experiences. Read it on your own, explore it with your partner, dissect it with your best girlfriends at your next girl’s night in?
