What if the ribbon colors chosen indicated one’s willingness to partake in adult games with…a stranger without strings attached…but with very specific rules…hmmm… I found this book definitely worth reading. It was different and made me think and did not posit right or wrong but instead presented information and stories as facts to be enjoyed, sorted through and contemplated. I have a feeling this book will remain with me for quite some time ;) Thank you to NetGalley and Koehler Books for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

    Thought I would like this based on the blurb and some reviews on Twitter. Unfortunately, this wasn't for me. I expected it to be daring and erotic but compared to some of my sweeter reads the encounters were OK. I could overlook the editing/ formatting if the story or sex kept me glued to the pages but sadly it didn't. This has potential and maybe it could be reworked in some areas to improve the reading experience. I was given an ARC for my honest opinion.

    Imagine that there is a game occurring right now across the planet, played by travelers all over the world and that is defined by colour ribbons placed strategically on their luggage on other visible places, like purses or clothing. Imagine that the colour of the ribbon would tip off the other players the kind of moves you would like to make in the game, and they would only approached you if they were in the same league.

Now that would make start looking around differently next time you went to the airport, right? That's the base of this book, allegedly fiction but that is fully written as if it were a result of journalistic investigation and in the end leaves you wondering how much of it is true or imagined. And that was exactly what I liked about the book, the fact that it is dubious and leaves us wondering, and also that it makes absolutely no judgments on the people playing the game, it simply presents the facts in an enticing way. It was a great read and I recommend it to anyone who likes to read about free spirited people and travels around the world.

    **Received from NetGalley for my honest review.** I will never look at the ribbons on luggage the same again! I always thought those elaborate ribbons / yard things attached to luggage was to help people easily locate their bags on the baggage carousel. Now, I'm not so sure! As the author ended the book - "Want to play? The TSG is a fantasy story. Or is it?" - makes you wonder!! The book was funny, but it wasn't a story so much as it was a running interview.

The participants were all different ages, sizes, , from different parts of the world, and came from different walks of life. This aspect made for a good mix of a story. I enjoyed the storyline very much. It was simple and there was not much convoluting it, which made it for an easy and quick read. A lot of the stories had me giddy just thinking how much the participants enjoyed themselves. I even thought about how I had a purple ribbon on suitcase at one time. Without knowing what it meant before reading this book, I thought that color would have fit me perfectly. Just know that not every story ended in a happy ending and that aspect brought a realistic side to the game itself. It showed that there were perks but also consequences to playing the game. However, there were some parts where the storyline lulled. I also would have wanted the author to better present the connections between the characters, especially characters that were introduced to the game by others but the person introduced were not part of a story specifically. Overall, I really liked this story. I was thinking of putting my ribbon back on my suitcase to possibly meet others who have read the book and to also see if this game really does exists. This would make for a fun adventure. *I received an ARC from Netgalley for an honest review. All reviews are my own opinions.*

    This book is hopelessly bad. First of all, it is so poorly formatted, it's hard to read on a Kindle, but worse than that is it is incredibly boring. The story is made up of sections that are various people's experiences with the traveling sex game. So each time a section begins, the reader has to sit through another explanation of the rules and how it works. Boring!!! The premise is preposterous. The characters are ridiculous. Their interactions are perfunctory and dull. It is the least sexy book This book is hopelessly bad.

Awful, awful, awful. Less than one star. I read an ARC provided by NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. This is the worst book I've read in years. I hate giving bad reviews because I understand how hard it is to write a book. This one should be taken out and buried somewhere though. My apologies to the author, but better luck next time.

    A fun and entertaining read. Many stories from different people about their experiences with the TSG and for some the consequences that followed. The story of Gracie and Charles moved me to a happy tear, very sweet. In whole I see it as not solely about random interludes but a lighthearted casual glimpse into the human condition, with an enticing spin.

    The blurb for this book lends you to think that it's going to be an erotic, life affirming/changing read when in reality it's incredibly boring. The questions in the blurb are all answered in the first 10% of the book leading you to wonder what's the rest of the book about. Well it's stories of how couples got into the game. That's it. The game itself is defined and all the questions answered within those first few chapters.

Unfortunately this guy’s writing style didn’t do it for me; felt like he didn’t have much experience writing. The sex scenes were kinda matter of fact; obviously these were hookups and not romances, but they could have been longer. 2.5 pushed up to 3/5

    A phenomenal read! Each story is realistically fantastic. A few minor grammatical errors here and there, but high-quality writing through and through. Lang is clearly a talented writer. I would recommend this book to those who already enjoy or want to indulge in erotic romance. The stories vary in intensity from simple to the risque. An absolutely fantastic debut!

    *Why is this listed as a graphic novel giveaway? It's not illustrated at all!* I received a free review copy of this book. I found the writing very accessible, and easy to get into. However, I had some issues with the explanation of the game itself. It's a decent concept, but not fully realized. There's no provision to prevent STDs, certainly not between females, and what if the condom breaks? Who's in charge in same-sex hookups, or hookups with multiple females?

I found the writing very accessible, and easy to get into. However, I had some issues with the explanation of the game itself. It's a decent concept, but not fully realized. There's no provision to prevent STDs, certainly not between females, and what if the condom breaks? Who's in charge in same-sex hookups, or hookups with multiple females? The ribbons are both too simple and too complicated. For instance, a desire for "S&M" is indicated by a single ribbon. What if you wind up with two subs getting together? You'd need to be able to more fully indicate preference, or go through an extended negotiation period, which nobody does in this book. There's no ribbon for just plain "bondage," either. And the "lowest" level of sex should be handjobs or frotting, not mentioned as even a POSSIBLE endgame! Combining more varieties of different ribbons would be a more realistic way to go about saying what exactly you're looking for. Why does everyone have convenient backup copies of the game on hand? Eighteen dollars is a LOT to pay for a few sheets of paper and a few pieces of ribbon ONCE, let alone multiple times! I don't agree that the recommendation of one current player is enough, since we see the first two packets bestowed on people after a single conversation. There's not a lot of focus on the sex scenes, for a book billed as erotica, but it's not really a romance, either. More like romantic/erotic vignettes? I'd bill it as "erotic speculative fiction," because what it talks about is possible, and might come to pass! However, the author seems to be trying to include at least a nod to as many kinks as possible without having any idea what makes them hot! Go read enough fanfiction to figure out what words, behaviors, and actions make, say, a bondage scene feel "sexy" before going any further down this road, is my advice. And it varies by person! Is it the feeling of being restrained that gets the character amped up, or the gentle loss of control that comes with being blindfolded? Pay attention to that, and focus on it in the text! Personal and other nitpicks: I realize this is a case of wish fulfillment, and people writing what they like to read, but there ARE limits on men taking the lead in all aspects of a romantic encounter. You REALLY shouldn't order food for someone you've just met without AT LEAST asking about allergies, restricted diets, etc. The people in this book don't talk to each other enough before or during the encounters, relying on the ribbons to indicate what they want or will accept, which I found unrealistic. Nobody, at any point, stops or redirects a scene. Why not? That would show both maturity and mutual respect! For all that the rules of the game include condoms, I don't recall reading about anyone putting one on. There's a good mix of ages and backgrounds, but no mention of race, and no male/male stories. Dairy products probably aren't the best thing for penetrative sex. Using ice cubes instead would lower the risk of a yeast infection. There were a few typos throughout the text - nothing major, aside from one repeated sentence on page 119.

    The Traveling Sex Game has an intriguing premise, but failed to deliver. Calvin is a reporter for his small town of Redding's newspaper when he gets wind of a mysterious game called the Traveling Sex Game. It's basically a way for strangers to conduct casual, anonymous sex (no last names are supposed to be known) with other players. It's all conducted in a hush hush manner with different colored ribbons denoting the level and category of interest of the possessor of the ribbons. So Calvin starts The Traveling Sex Game has an intriguing premise, but failed to deliver. Calvin is a reporter for his small town of Redding's newspaper when he gets wind of a mysterious game called the Traveling Sex Game. It's basically a way for strangers to conduct casual, anonymous sex (no last names are supposed to be known) with other players. It's all conducted in a hush hush manner with different colored ribbons denoting the level and category of interest of the possessor of the ribbons. So Calvin starts to research this game by getting into contact with different players of the game. Each chapter is a different player's story, and I think this is where it ran into problems. There were so many different stories going on here that I had a hard time connecting with any of them. It's not one unifying story of one or two couples so I never felt invested or connected to any of them. None of them were connected to each other except perhaps in an incidental way, as in some of them were introduced to Calvin by the person who introduced them to the game. You'd think that since this is a story about sex, The Traveling Sex Game would be a lot sexier. Alas, it's all written in a very clinical way, without passion or connection of the characters at all. I wouldn't even call it erotica, because erotica is usually super steamy/dirty/naughty. The Traveling Sex Game is almost like a fictionalized documentary, with all the lack of warmth the term documentary implies. Since I wasn't invested in any of the stories, nor did I connect to any of the characters, I was hoping that at least I'd end up liking the story. But no, I didn't like it. It's all very dry and boring I'm afraid. It's not that it's not well written, because the writing is generally OK. It just lacked warmth, passion and connection, lending it a clinical, dry feel. This one is not for me, unfortunately. I received an ARC via NetGalley for an honest review.

It was a bit different than I originally thought it was going to be. Set as encounters told by the people sharing their stories with Calvin, I expected to be on the more erotic or risqué side of things. Some were spicy, and some were quite bland. It was their stories told to Calvin. I would've liked more heat in the story, but maybe this wasn't fiction after all?? I know I won't look at luggage ribbons the same again!
