‘Well-known sex writer, Dorothy Black, has finally written a book. Her blog, The Dot Spot, has been immensely popular because of its honest, no-holds-barred attitude to talking about sex and dating. Black’s book,The Dot Spot. Adventures in Love and Sex, is just as frank, witty, and informative. There are plenty of books about sex, dating, and relationships. But few are as accessible, as readable as Black’s. She’s unafraid of revealing her own history and experiences with the various topics, which helps the reader relate to her.’ – Andrea van Wyk, And The Plot Thickens and PowerFM Read the full review 

‘Her voice is youthful and playful, yet firm and assertive, and she writes in the same easy-going manner in which she converses. If Black had her way, there would be discussions about sex and relationships at family dinners, over coffee, around the kitchen table, in schools, and in university halls … Her book will and must contribute comprehensively to such vital conversations.’ – Sue Grant-Marshall, Business Day Read the full review

‘Dorothy Black’s down-to-earth writing style takes sex out of the shame closet and makes it something we can really talk about. The Dot Spot is a journey of sexual self-discovery for anyone wanting to broaden their horizons and boost their sexual self-esteem.’ – Dr Trina Read, sexologist and author of Till Sex Do Us Part: Make Your Married Sex Irresistible

‘She is the friend that you share all your juicy details with (the one your mother’s not particularly fond of) and the one that reads you the riot act when you’re still fussing over that guy who’s stringing you along’ – Louise Ferreira, Beeld. Read the full review. 

‘So many gems in this book, [it] gives a different meaning to “Let’s talk about sex…”’
– Shado Twala, SAFM

‘This is the book we need. This is the book every single woman needs, and probably quite a few men too. It’s the big sister we never had, even if we had a big sister. It’s the friend we can trust who knows more than we do but never makes us feel stupid. It’s the slightly crazy aunt we adore because she makes it okay to say stuff and ask questions, and she tells us the truth.’ – Kim Smith, Women24 Read the full review 

‘The Dot Spot is a really excellent book about sex.’ – Karin Schimke, book reviewer, poet, author

‘Packed with non-judgmental, common sense, and morally sound advice on love and dating.’ – Jean Barker, filmmaker and author of Zana 

‘This book says everything I would like to tell my daughters about relationships and sex, but never have. It is a light, funny, readable book that makes a significant, important and empowering contribution to the conversation challenging the “good normal”. I have already recommended it to clients, friends and family aplenty…’ – Katy Menell, counsellor
