Thank you Netgalley for the opportunity to read and review this book. This book falls under a very personal topic that is often looked at as taboo. I found this book to be very informative and freeing to read. When going into this book it's good to have an open mind as some topics can be a bit hard to read especially if you or your partner struggle with feelings surrounding areas discussed in the book. Overall I felt the book did a good job hitting the main points that are often thought of as "kinky". I learned a lot from this book and would definitely recommend this to anyone interested in expanding their knowledge especially someone who is just starting to learn more about this subject.

I didn't have to read much of this to know - this book is the real deal for those who are not kinky to understand some of the needs and appeal for those who are. It can be a very hard conversation, so having a book with the information available will create so many great conversations and make more intimacy possible in these relationships.

10/10 wrecked me, gave me free therapy sessions and informed me of everything and anything I would need to know about being in a relationship with someone with kinks or as someone with kinks, or both. Splendid, intelligent, humorous at times, and gentle. Perfect.

Thank you Netgalley for this book!

Talk to your partners about what you want from sex. It shouldn't be a secret, or taboo, and they won't be able to help you achieve what you want if they don't know. Read this book too. And make your friends and partner and their partners read it.

While I tend to gravitate toward fiction, With Sprinkles on Top caught my attention from the title and held my attention throughout.

A sex-positive guide for couples, this book is something that both kinky and "vanilla" individuals can learn from and is a great way to open up discussion between partners. I highly recommend taking turns reading it aloud with your partner as an intimate experience!

This book literally changed my understanding of communication in relationships. I come from the world of never talk about sex— ever.
Even if I’m a vanilla person I’m applying to open communication practices of the kink community to my own relationship and it has truest been game changing. I’m really thankful I read this book. Highly recommend.

Open communication with a partner about sexual preferences and desires can be such a troubling and "taboo" topic for some. I enjoyed the way this book explored how to have open communication regarding introducing kink in the bedroom between partners with initially different desires. From the very beginning Dr. Goerlich defines important terms that are often misunderstood and likely heavily judged by those new to the world of "kink." I thought this was refreshing and easy to read book about meeting in the middle and exploring new things in adult, consensual relationships.

Thank you NetGalley and publisher for the opportunity to read and review this book.

I’m always up for learning and reading just about anything. From fiction to non fiction, true crime, medical, sexual health; so when this came along o decided to give it a go. While I’m not someone who dabbles in this world, I can’t say I’m not curious. Learning and education is key when it comes to exploration when it comes to sex so this book is perfect for that. Learning proper terms, learning the different types of kinks, building healthy, non abusive relationships all go into making this book something that anyone who’s curious or has a partner should definitely check out. Talking about sex is completely normal and healthy and we definitely need more books that allow readers to explore and learn.

As a former sex educator, I am always looking for books that encourage open communication between partners.
This book is a lovely first look into kink, mostly focused on BDSM. It perfectly balances information with enjoyment.
Really enjoyed this book!

Super informational, written with a lot of thought and intention it seems, and really enlightened me into how others see things, one way or the other. Highly recommend for anyone with an interest in this topic. Thank you for letting me check it out :)

With Sprinkles on Top : Everything Vanilla People and Their Kinky Partners Need to Know to Communicate, Explore, and Connect is a helpful and encouraging guidebook that explores an area that hasn't been covered in depth before. It explores desire difference between partners and how the gap can be addressed. The main area it tackles is BDSM but other kinks are also discussed. It is a book that will encourage conversation and more openness between couples and it shows that there is often a way to negotiate differences leading to a more understanding, varied and loving relationship. A really good book that will help and support many couples.
