The Naughty Girl’s Guide to Las Vegas, by Sienna Sinclaire (2015)

Nonfiction
(very) Adult
Naughty Girl's Guide to Las VegasThis second in the Naughty Girl’s travel guide series (the first focused on Los Angeles) offers a handy guide to the sexy side of Sin City. Sinclaire begins with a 30-page history of Vegas, unveiling the city’s origins in the red light district known as Block 16 and the arrival of burlesque and strip shows, and noting how the building of the Hoover Dam saved the city that nearly fell victim to Prohibition. Then we get to the good stuff, organized into Naughty by Day, Naughty Shopping, and Naughty by Night. I found the best stuff was in the first section. There’s a remarkable selection of activities to keep you in trouble during the day – backstage tours of burlesque shows, erotic photography, pole-dancing and lap dance classes, and where to find topless pools. Naughty Shopping tells you where to get your lingerie, body tattoos, sex toys and even sexy candy. Naughty by Night predictably lists the burlesque shows and casinos, but I was particularly intrigued by Porn Star Karaoke. It all adds up to nearly 300 pages of, um, brief entries (sorry!) on each naughty activity, illustrated with lavish photos, mostly of women looking lovely. There’s a short bibliography and works cited list, web resources, and apparently an index is pending though there was none in the advance reading copy I received. My thanks to NetGalley for the e-copy in exchange for my honest review.
All in all, I was pleasantly surprised and expect this will be a hot gift item at bachelorette parties and in preparation for romantic weekends in the city that never sleeps.
