Kink in exile

Notes from a kinky nomad

How to tell a naked man what to do; a book review

If I’m not mistaken, I got this book with a shipment of other, more overtly BDSM themed books. In fact, How to Tell a Naked Man What to Do sounds like it would be a book about BDSM, female domination, or at the very least something kinky. It’s not. How to Tell a Naked Man What to Do is a primer for women of all stripes on how to get their male partners to play along with their sexual fantasies, kinky or otherwise. Candida Royalle, an adult film maker and porn star, guides the girl next door through fantasy development, scripting, and set design offering tidbits of the adult film world with take home exercises.

It’s an interesting premise but I had two problems with it. 1) Adult filmmaking is a porn star’s job, and as with any jobs comes with its pluses and minuses. Maybe I’m jaded, but I’ve seen the production phase of too much porn to be excited by the idea. Will a porn star have good sex advice? Probably. Do I want my sex life or bedroom to look like the set of an adult film? No, probably not. 2) The advice is solid but basic. I was expecting something edgier when I picked this out, after realizing it wouldn’t be kinky I still had high hopes for it, but unfortunately it didn’t tell me anything I, or the average 20 year old, didn’t already know. That said, while the director’s notes seemed pretty basic many of the Q&A and other “pro tips” (my words not hers) in the shaded areas were fun to read, and covered everything from music to foreplay.

If it’s been your life long dream to act out your porn production fantasy with your husband, buy this book right now. If you are looking for solid advice on sex, sex toys, or bondage fetish and kink, keep looking.
