This book is, quite simply, about anal sex and one woman's experience of the divine via anal sex. For myself, it didn't hold my attention because there wasn't enough depth and anal sex just isn't my end all (no pun intended) be all. As others have said, if you are offended by frank and open discussion about sex, this isn't the book for you. I would disagree that it's 'smutty'. I didn't think it was smutty, just honest and about sex.

It wasn't my favorite book but if you're a lover of anal sex and submission, this might be the book for you.

The basic idea is that Toni Bentley finds God (or at least a spiritual awakening) through anal sex. It's fun, short, and sometimes sexy. Like all memoirs it's hard to tell fact from fiction in this one. Toni raises some interesting questions about sexuality and spirituality.

I honestly found this book rather silly. Yes, it's "smutty," and I wasn't at all offended by it -- it's quite graphic, so if that bothers you, you won't want to read it -- but I didn't find it very erotic. The writing is good overall, but I thought that she took herself way too seriously in much of this book. It's entertaining, and at times amusing, but that's about it.

Very trashy and easy read. I surely didn't think it was the greatest book in the world but it was quick and amusing. If you are easily offended by vulgar language and sexual details, this isn't the book for you.
