Book Review: On Blossoming: Frank and Practical Advice on Our Bodies, Sexual Health, Sensuality, Pleasure, Orgasm, and More

Gia Lynne released On Blossoming–part memoir, part self-discovery, -enjoyment, and -care manual–in May 2019. This, her first book, was well-researched and intentionally crafted with language inclusive of all genders and sexual orientations but will most likely appeal to feminine individuals who seek a path to improved mindfulness, body-awareness, and body-acceptance, particularly as they pertain to making room for pleasure in everyday life. Stand-out elements of the text include comprehensive (internal and external) clitoral anatomy and emphasis on feeling–rather than looking–good. Lynne also provides a detailed description of the unique practice of Deliberate Orgasm (DO), a communication-centered, partnered method of genital description and touch. Those who wish to learn more about DO can listen to a free RadioPublic podcast entitled “Deliberate Orgasm with the Welcomed Consensus” (the intentional community in which Lynne was raised) here. The book can be purchased here.
