"...[T]he Rare Sex Ed Book Getting Inclusivity Right."


"Charming without being precious, comprehensive but in no way cumbersome, BANG! is a fantastic, fun and pleasure-forward primer on masturbation—both its past and your present and future—for anyone and everyone. You just couldn't ask for an introduction or re-introduction with more warmth, sensitivity, curiosity and delight."


"BANG! offers a unique insight into the world of masturbation. With everything from statistics to historical practices to a modern day how-to, BANG! pulls back the covers on an activity that is so often alluded to but so rarely the topic of honest, forthright conversation. A good (read of) BANG! can actually help people understand themselves and their own sexuality on a deeper, more connecting, more pleasurable level. I highly recommend it!"


"This warm, generous guide to self-love is a tribute to inclusive design."


"Bang! is an essential read for everybody giving permission not just to masturbate but to love our bodies in all their shapes, sizes and configurations while acknowledging all the stumbling blocks that might make that an uphill climb. Empowering, body affirming and inclusive information offered up in a accessible format to help break the stigma around masturbation. Perfect for all of us on the road to self-acceptance and engaging in the radical acts of self-love."


"For those of us that take pleasure through our eyes, Bang! is eyegasmic! It's so well done that you will want to put this masturbation masterpiece on your coffee table.”


"BANG! is a wonderful, magical journey of a book. People of all genders and genitals and understandings of their bodies will find themselves in it and—so importantly—find their ways forward in their paths to pleasure.”
