With wit and candor, McCombs shares simple yet powerful observations that speak to the heart of Drake’s goals as a sex educator, noting that “Jessica is responding to years of heartrending questions from women, whom she says have become a much larger part of the audiences at signings and conventions over the last decade.” It’s a salient point that Drake confirms by observing "For the duration of my career, I've mostly been sexual inspiration to a lot of guys, but I think this is a really great chance for me to be able to give back to women."
McCombs is also quick to note that the professionalism Drake brings to the production flies in the face of many pre-conceived notions about those who come from a background in adult entertainment. “Agency and business savvy ooze from her perfectly made-up pores,” she enthuses. “When Jessica sits down to record her voice-over narration, I'm surprised and pleased to hear her script includes discussion of boundaries, safer sex and consent.”
Further dispelling outdated societal views regarding adult entertainment in general and the sexual self-help genre in particular, McCombs praises both Drake and the ladies of jessica drake’s Guide to Wicked Sex: Threesomes by confiding, “I obviously came into this situation believing strongly in a woman's right to engage in sex work or do anything else she wants with her God-given body. But even I was surprised by just how smart and in control the women on set were.”
