    4-0 out of 5 stars Renewed Our Commitment
    I bought this book some time ago, but I didn't read it until a few nights ago, while my husband was bowling. I finally had the courage to read it in the few hours he was gone. We've had sexual problems for years, and had given up hope. We don't even talk about it anymore. Our sexual encounters were either too long because he had to work on me for hours to make me reach orgasm or nonexistent. All the advice in how-to-orgasm books just seemed too silly for a couple who has been married for years, and who has two grown children. When my husband got home from bowling that night, I was in the mood for the first time in months, and anxious to try out my new technique.

    Needless to say, it worked like a charm, and he LOVED IT! After it was over, we talked about the book and the technique and we are both perfectly happy with both. We don't intend to be a sexless couple anymore. We are happy to renew our sex lives, and our commitment to each other. This simple little book can help and the technique can work for you. I urge you to give it a try.

    5-0 out of 5 stars BUY THIS BOOK!
    Sex is a bodily function that shouldn't require millions of pages of literature to teach people how to do it. Everybody basically has the same equipment and the same potential to reach orgasm. It's perfectly natural and uncomplicated.

    That's what this book tells people. Relax, let go and do what comes naturally. Sex is like everything else in life. It's more enjoyable when you do it with a partner, but we shouldn't totally depend on others for our pleasure and satisfaction. We have autonomy over our own lives and our own bodies, and D. Claire Hutchins does a great job of showing us how to use it.

    If a person is handicapped in any way, or has special needs, then this book might not be helpful, but if you've got all the necessary parts, you can have a climax without a lot of difficulty.

    This simple, to the point book can help any woman accomplish the goal of climaxing during intercourse without having to spend more time reading about it than she does doing it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Short, easy to read and FUN!
    My husband bought this and 2 other books on the subject and I read this one in about 3 hours! Having been married for 9 years and having an "open mind" to try new things, there wasn't really anything new or earth shaking in the book, but it was nice to get back to the basics of sex, and sometimes it's good to be "goal oriented". The reading was fun and easy, it's written in a clear context where they don't beat around the bush and my husband really enjoyed not having to do all of the work for a change. I'm fortunate I've never had a problem reaching orgasm so I can't say if it "worked" or not, but it was fun to read and it reminded me that not all sex-capades have to be this long sensuous love-making session for me to get off, sometimes it's fun just to get to the point! My husband agrees! Do I recommend it? Sure, buy it, read it; lifes short, have fun!

    5-0 out of 5 stars The Answer to an Old Problem
    Many women, myself included, have trouble finding satisfaction during the sex act. Several recent studies seem to bear this out. I think part of the reason is that women are told they MUST reach orgasm, but only their partner can "give" it to them. That leaves too much pressure on both the man and the woman. What's the answer?

    Most couples don't need extensive sex therapy nor drawn out lovemaking sessions. Most of us don't want to take the time for that, especially not if we've been in a relationship for years. This book offers a quick and simple formula that will work for many women every time, especially if they have experienced orgasm through masturbation, oral sex or using vibrators. This book removes the mystery from female orgasm. and makes it easy for a woman to achieve orgasm DURING intercourse, every time.

    It worked for me. It can work for you too.

    Sex should be "an experience to be relished from beginning to end," says Lou Paget in How to Be a Great Lover: Girlfriend-to-Girlfriend Totally Explicit Techniques That Will Blow His Mind. Paget (a woman) aims "to empower you as a woman, heighten the intimacy of your romantic relationship, and enable you and your partner to enjoy yourselves in intense new ways." She lives up to that promise with this friendly, titillating, educational, and explicit guide to enlivening your sex life and keeping your man coming back for more. Is he a bad kisser? Learn an easy strategy to get him to kiss you just the way you like it. Does he object to using a condom? Use your mouth to put it on him (a six-step process, complete with illustrations). You'll find information you might not find anywhere else, such as dozens of explicit manual and oral techniques (many illustrated) that will drive him crazy, a comparison of different brands of lubricant for different uses (along with sexy ways to apply it), techniques for anal stimulation, and a guide to sex toys. This book is fun to read, and will certainly open up the sensuality in your relationship. --Joan Price ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!
    There are hundreds of books like this on the market, not to mention 50 new magazine articles each month on "the ONE sex secret he's dying to tell you" etc. etc. Like many single women, I am addicted to the Cosmo articles, but you do reach a point where you feel like you've heard it all before.
    I bought this book for fun, expecting the same information but maybe with a slightly new twist. All I can say is WOW! Lou Paget presents fresh and original ideas to spice up your love life, and they really do work.
    This isn't a book of sexual positions. If you are like me, however, you probably know enough positions to hold you over for a while. And I've learned that a position is not nearly as important as how it's done. This book mostly focuses on foreplay. There is a chapter on intercourse, but it's mostly stuff I already knew. The information gathered from the rest of the book is far more important. Sex is better when you have incredible foreplay to lead up to it.
    Just one caveat: I never used to give my boyfriend hand jobs. I just didn't think I was very good at it. I mean, why do something that he can probably do better, right? Now that I've read this book and learned the techniques, my boyfriend actually asks for handjobs more often than sex. (if you start to have this problem, try the Italian Method, no man can turn down sex after that) ;)

    5-0 out of 5 stars If Only I'd Had This Sooner!
    I've had my share of experience, but I'm also always interested in learning a new tip or trick to surprise a man with in bed. In fact, that's the entire reason I subscribe to the gamut of women's magazines, for the coveted "5 New Moves That Will Drive Him Wild!" articles. Well, Cosmo, consider yourself cancelled now that I bought this book! I was hesitant at first, expecting a regurgitation of all the usual explanations, but was very pleasantly surprised. The chapter on hand jobs is the best, with many many fully-illustrated and described techniques that I'm dying to try out. Further, the section on 'backdoor' exploration was the most thorough I'd found anywhere. Paget writes in a frank, but tactful, manner, and I feel really speaks to women who want to please their men physically AND emotionally, as she suggests certain moves/techniques not simply because they're physically stimulating, but because they will also help your man to relax and feel safe with you in the driver's seat. I will definitely be referring back to this book again and again. This is a great gift for yourself and all your girl (or gay) friends!!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Super
    I dont know what else to add that others have not said. It is a great book, right up there with 500 Lovemaking Tips and Secrets.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Ode to Brain
    I used to be very skeptical about this kind of books, as none of them taught me something new. I just felt like I had to read a challenging guide and that was exactly what I needed. Lou Paget is very good!

    It is a must read, the kind of book that every woman should have under her pillow. It will give you so many ideas about how to be a great lover and how to satisfy your partner. So many techniques, that will spice up your life and will surely blow his mind. Everything works, especially Ode to Brain. You have to try this!

    I only wish I had a video tape attached to this book. It would have been even better.

    You won't find another sex guidebook that is this smart, interesting and full of useful information. This book never insulted my intelligence; Violet Blue writes in a straightforward but fun tone (the section on male orgasm is fascinating) that gets right to the heart of going down on a guy. This book tells you exactly what to do with your mouth and hands, and how to make oral sex fun for both giver and receiver, plus how to do it anywhere, anytime. The entire chapter on deep throat was an eye opener, especially the anatomical illustration. She gives solid advice about every aspect, and I found her advice for the squeamish especially helpful. This really is the ultimate guide.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Fellatio = Sanctity of marraige bed?

    You know what you're getting when you buy or even stumble across "by accident" this book. This fantastic book that tells you what OLDER women (your Mom?) don't tell you, and what you really wouldn't want to hear from Mom anyway.

    It's like a frank discussion with your girlfriend, and I consider this blogmistress one of my dearest. This book is great for us NORMAL girls out there who won't be strutting the runways anytime soon, but who are fantastic girlfriends (and wives) anyway.

    I don't love the way I look in garters, but the techniques (and confidence) that I learned from this book make my boyfriend think that I am the hottest, sexiest woman in the world, and one who must truly love him to do that thing so well. And he wouldn't notice if I put on garters, or a potato pack for that matter.

    Well done Violet Blue and please don't stop blogging!

    Although I am a heterosexual man, I figured it wouldn't hurt to know how to perform fellatio, just in case a career advancement opportunity came along. This book was very helpful in teaching me the basic technique, and luckily, various men have allowed me to practice on them to perfect my skills. Thanks to Violet Blue, I will now get that promotion I've been waiting for.

    4-0 out of 5 stars good book, could use more images
    There is a thin line between using visuals to aid and using visuals to turn-on someone -- a book about sexuality should try to straddle that line well. Violet Blue has good tips and suggestions along with well-researched physical information. However the images, while nice, could be more numerous especially for beginners who may fumble over some of the terms and descriptions. There needs to be a bit more in the book about how to get someone comfortable with doing down on (...) the first place; social conditioning and past experiences can be a big reason why someone refuses (...). ...

    "Most people suck performing oral sex," writes Marcy Michaels, and "a simple want of skill and knowledge is to blame." Blow Him Away aims to supply that skill and knowledge andteach you how to give your man earth-shaking pleasure.

    Speech therapist and voice coach Marcy Michaels is "a doctor of the mouth." It's not such a stretch (pardon the pun) that she can guide you towards "mastery over your lips and tongue" for performing fellatio. Before you practice on a warm body, you'll do solitary exercises for jaw control, proper breathing, easing tension, swallowing, and "tonguemanship." Work out "lazy lips" with kissing exercises such as Saltwater Pump, Monkey Face, and Jug of Plenty. Twenty-seven tongue exercises are next--both basic and intermediate level--for flexibility, suppleness, and dexterity of this love muscle. By the time you bring your partner into the picture in Chapter 10, you're ready to give your man oral sex that will leave him cross-eyed.

    Twenty line drawings illustrate positions and techniques. This earthy, graphic guide to fellatio is lively, clever, and fun to read. And your partner will appreciate it! --Joan Price ... Read more

    People joke that the start of a couple's marriage means the end of their sex life. David Schnarch, a sex therapist praised by Pepper Schwartz, uses epiphany-laden conversations taken directly from his own marriage and the married couples he sees in practice to help readers defy the myth that marriages are necessarily passionless, and instead prove that the longer a couple has been together, the higher the fireworks can fly. It's especially aimed at older couples who, Schnarch says, are self-actualized and therefore better able to handle intimacy than younger partners. "People have difficulty with intimacy because they're supposed to," he says, and goes on in this inspiring book to combine elements of marriage therapy and sex therapy to bring plenty of practical, fresh ideas to the crowd of mostly vapid relationship books. (Note that despite its title, it's for any emotionally committed couple, not just married folks.)

    Schnarch says that a man is more likely to let a relationship suffer in order to hold on to his sense of self, while a woman is more apt to let her identity suffer to help strengthen it. Schnarch gives explicit tips on how to alter this pattern, an essential step he calls "differentiation." He also explains why compromise isn't always the best route to take when conflicts arise. The couples profiled here deal with the usual suspects: uneven sexual desire and initiation, battles about oral sex, self-image problems, the "boondoggle" of trust (both of one's self and one's partner), and the specter of divorce. Instead of focusing on each client's weaknesses, Schnarch teaches how to find inner strength and resilience that can be used to reaffirm a relationship and reignite sex.William H. Masters of Masters and Johnson fame calls this book "a classic," and no wonder. --Erica Jorgensen ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Stands out from the Pack of Couples' Fixit Books
    Most books on improving a marriage focus on communication techniques or the basics/exotics of sex ed. David Schnarch has created something quite different. This book focuses on using conflict within the couple to create the growth necessary for partners to relate to each other. The book balances a well written presentation of psychological theory with anectdotal examples of how it manifests in couples.

    The root of marital conflict is not failure to communicate. Rather, it is accurate communication between incompletely individuated people. Individuation means the ability to connect with another, even in conflict, without losing one's own sense of self. When individuation is lacking, members of a couple must find ways to keep their distance from their partners in order not to lose their sense of self. This distancing is the root of marital (or other committed couple) discord.

    Schnarch uses the forum of the couple to challenge each individual to develop a stronger, less contingent sense of self. The very institution that produces anxiety--the relationship--becomes the mechanism of repair! He postulates that couples only form between individuals who are similarly individuated. As one member of the couple develops, it challenges the other. The two partners "leapfrog" in their development, continually challenging the other.

    I've been married for 15 1/2 years. We spent the last three years (we're slow learners) working with a therapist who subcribes to Schnarch's ideas. After many, many wasted dollars with other therapists (we learned all the nice communication techniques, with no improvement in our couplehood), we've finally begun to develop a sense of intimacy in our relationship. This stuff WORKS!

    For those who'd like a more theoretical background on the material, Schnarch's THE SEXUAL CRUCIBLE is an incredible reference work. It contains the theoretical material found here, but instead of anectdotes about people living the material, it pulls in reams academic material to refute other theories and buttress Schnarch's.

    Five stars for breaking new ground. Five stars for making key psychological theories accessible. Five stars for importance. If you're in a relationship, and you think it could be better--get this book! It can be!


    5-0 out of 5 stars FOR CHRISTIANS ALSO!
    Most evangelical Christians (of which I am one) would not read David's book, but they should! His language is pretty "worldly" and can be offensive, but the concepts that he discusses are actually Scriptural. His basic concepts are actually more scriptural than most of the so-called "Christian" books that we find in Christian book stores. His basic concept of "Differentiation" really is nothing more than being mature enough to live out "Covenant-style" relationships. In a Covenant relationship, the person offers to love and give in relationship not based on what they get back, but solely on the basis of their own integrity (wholeness). I give to you, not in order to get back, but simply because I CHOOSE to give to you, without regard to how you give back. God himself demonstrated covenant-style relationship first with Israel and now offers it to all through His Son.

    David Schnarch's language is hard to get around, but the concepts, as applied to relationships are really worth the effort. We Christians say that God created sex to be great and marriage to be great, but most of us have real difficulty in living that out because we are stuck in "contract-style" relationships (I give so that you can give back to me and I can then feel good about myself) [borrowed functioning and reflected sense of self]. David's book can help transition us out of contract style relationships to "Covenant-style" relationships.

    3-0 out of 5 stars catch 22
    I feel like I should write about the issues I have with this book.

    I completely understand the point of being differentiated and agree with it. Selfishness is important in regards to maintaining your sense of self. Afterall we all know that we can't be complete in a relationship if we are not first complete in ourselves.

    I mean I remember my mother saying that if you want people to like you then you first need to like yourself - others will follow. And she was right.

    That said I don't like some of the circular thinking I find here. If you don't compromise then you haven't addressed all your internal issues so you ae not really differentiated. One of those catch22 that annoys me. What if some people really just are not compatible bc of basic personality types or if one grows in a different direction. Do you continously argue (in a mature fashion)? I mean I understand staying together for children I suppose... but I don't believe marriage has to be big compromise all the time. If this is true then aren't you eventually sacrificing your differentiation?

    5-0 out of 5 stars Life changing - but requires courage!
    This book offers a truly profound look at the processes of marriage, and offers insight that will impact all your relationships, not just the one with your partner.
    Schnarch describes how reaching gridlock (feeling stuck) is a normal part of the marriage process - and does not mean that you are abnormal or your marriage is broken. He provides a roadmap for passing through gridlock by embracing intimacy... and it *does* require the courage to pass through the crucible. Applying Scharch's approach requires (and helps) you to find the courage to truly love.
    This book is a must read.

    2-0 out of 5 stars A minority viewpoint.
    There may be some helpful and meaningful information in this bloated (408 pages), poorly organized and poorly written book but I didn't have the patience to find it. To be fair, out of frustration I stopped reading after the first couple of chapters and stopped skimming altogether about midway through.

    The problems for me begin right at the beginning with the author's telling of a decision he made as a student to not compromise his principles for the sake of an overbearing professor. This, he tells us, is an example of "differentiation." How is this going to relate to passion in marriage? We're left clueless. The concept of differentiation pops up throughout at least the first half of the book and, given its importance to the author, you'd expect there to a chapter - or at least a section - explicitly devoted to clearly and succinctly defining and specifically discussing what it is and what it means. Alas, that is not to be.

    Instead we get a meandering tome littered with psychobabble and punctuated by interminable vignettes of couples in therapy within which our author miraculously seems to always say just the right thing at just the right time. Worse, the author presents his methods with an "I'm right and everyone else is wrong" attitude based, it seems, entirely on anecdotal evidence.

    What did I learn from this book? Having a Ph.D. does not make you a good writer.

    Book Description

    In this world you’re surrounded by sexual images that open the door to temptation. They’re everywhere–on TV, billboards, magazines, music, the internet–and so easy to access that it sometimes feels impossible to escape their clutches. Yet God expects his children to be sexually pure. So how can you survive the relentless battle against temptation? Here’s powerful ammunition.

    Steve Arterburn and Fred Stoeker, the authors of the hard-hitting best-seller Every Man’s Battle, now focus on the temptations young single Christian men like you face every day–and they offer workable, biblical strategies for achieving sexual purity.

    The authors examine the standard of Ephesians 5:3–“there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality”–in a positive and sensitive light. And they explain how an authentic, vibrant relationship with Jesus Christ is the key to victory over temptation. Every Young Man’s Battle will show you how to train your eyes and your mind, how to clean up your thought life, and how to develop a realistic battle plan for remaining pure in today’s sexually soaked culture. As a result, you’ll experience hope–real hope–for living a strong, pure life God’s way

    5-0 out of 5 stars An extremely practical and powerful book!
    This book includes simple, yet extremely practical and powerful techniques to guard your heart and mind from sexual temptation. The most helpful tips I found were the two key scripture verses the authors recommend to be your "sword" and "shield" when your eyes begin to roam. I have begun applying the techniques for the past few days and believe me...they work!

    This book is great for single guys, no matter what their age. Even though the language seems to be directed toward teen singles, it is great for us guys in midlife too! I found the book much more helpful for us singles than "Every Man's Battle".

    This is THE BEST book on the subject I have found! Get!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, straight talk from real people
    Arterburn & Stoeker do an excellent job of talking straight to the single male. Though the book is entitled Every Young Man's Battle this book deals with the very real sexual struggles of every man that is single. I would highly recommend this book to all men ages, High School on up.

    The book finally gives straight talk on the issues of masturbation, soft porn, the wandering eyes, and the issues of lust in our culture. In a world where sexual images and humor crowd our airwaves from radio to television this is a needed tool to stay the battle.

    This is not just a book on staying pure, but one that gives real resons for trying to do so. Testimonies of men who have struggled, fallen, and then regained their purity are given throughout this book.

    I would encourage every man to read this book, and encourage you to buy extras to share with others who may also be struggling to remain pure.

    3-0 out of 5 stars The Pro's and Con's of this Book from a sex addict
    This book is ideal for younger teenagers, under the age of 15, as it provides a ton of information on the consequences of things often begun at that age: pornography, masturbation, lust, etc. It is very likely that a kid who has only begun to do these things or hasn't begun to will be profoundly and succesfully effected by the in-depth discussions of this book on the results of sexual impurity. If the seed of impurity has only been newly planted, "Every Young Man's Battle" will unearth it before the roots of its lustful evils can grow deeper.
    The book provides many citations from the Bible that deal with sexual impurity. Although people will complain that it contains explicit themes, what do you expect? This is a book that explores the harm and damage of sexual impurity: it is to be expected that such themes will need to be brought up. In fact, the attitude that this book shouldnt be read because it talks about masturbation, etc reflects the problem of parents mentioned in the book who didnt address these issues to the people who tell their stories of becoming sexually impure. It is something that must be addressed.
    The authors share many experiences of others in their struggles and shows readers that they are not alone in their sexual impurity. Some of the stories, if ending in success of becoming chaste or maritally chaste, are inspiring. Overall the book is quite helpful.
    However, as with most books, it is lacking some things. The book is written from a fundamentalist Christian perspective. If you don't want to hear about people being "saved" and "accepting Jesus" you will probably be annoyed in reading it. It will be helpful to have a faith in God when you read the book, but it is not needed because the authors claim that it is not God, but you, who will have to do the work of becoming pure. The book actually says that prayers are not very effective. I would suggest that the authors consider that prayers can be effective if they are said right: instead of people praying for God to come and wipe away their problems, pray for smaller things. The authors should have suggested concentrating on the smaller things of each day when it comes to prayers: praying that God will inspire you to stop, praying each day that he will help you for just that day (and doing this again and again every day), praying that God will reveal to you your mistakes (something few people do but which is very effective), praying that God will help you to view all women as being not objects for desire but important creations of God; etc, to that effect. It is rather disheartening that they suggest that prayer is not going to be as helpful as people think it will because they are wrong to say that!
    There is a lot of information describing the problem, how it starts, how it progresses, the attitudes involved, what to think and not to think, etc. But not enough is suggested in stopping the problem. Thus, whereas the book is good for "Young men" it is not going to be 100% helpful to guys already habitually addicted to masturbation or porn. The book lacks a bibliography and supportive citations for information on such things as the chemical impact of masturbation, addiction to sex, oxytocin, etc. Rarely does the book even provide references to medical things. Sexual addiction carries with it chemical complications which make it very hard to just stop masturbation: like use of a drug, if masturbation is cut the person will have withdrawal effects biologically and the book doesnt really explore these issues.
    Otherwise, the book is all in all still very helpful! I would STRONGLY SUGGEST to all readers of this book to also read "If you really loved me: 101 questions on sexual purity" by Jason Evert and "Real Love" by Mary Beth Bonacci. In addition to these book all of the information provided in them is an arsenol to strengthen anyone in the battle for sexual purity.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for teenagers
    I bought this book for my 13 years old son in order to initiate an open discussion with him about sexuality, lust and purity. He was at first a little bit embarrased about the quiet graphic chapters dealing with masturbation, but some talking and further reading of this marvelous book with my son permitted us to pray together and find some practical solutions in order to allow him to live purely his christian teen life.

    The book covers all major aspects of male sexuality and is one of the few books I know that gives some realy great and useful advice to help any teen to fight his sinful sexual urges.

    A fantastic book for any parent (mom or dad) that want to help his teen to live a pure life.

    2-0 out of 5 stars Rename this book
    The book might help you get over porn addiction but it will certainly help you become a self-righteous fundamentalist. In one instance the author chastises a friend for NOT noticing the sexual innuendos in a movie. So who went home justified? The Pharisee or the Publican? He also blames women for wearing short skirts.
    This book, like religion, will make your life more difficult and happiness elusive. I regret buying this book. ... Read more

    Book Description

    Author and sex educator Violet Blue has written this description of the new fourth edition which says it all:

    It’s finally here!What I, and pretty much every sex educator I know, have long thought is the best all-around sex guide in the world has finally released a fully–and I mean fully–updated version. The Guide to Getting It On! is really now the most comprehensive sex guide in the world, and as a sex guide writer, I’m saying a lot.

    Joannides and his team of researchers present a (huge) book that covers it all, in a very hilarious tone that delivers oodles of info yet remains expressly respectful to the reader at all times. This is an all-inclusive (yet heterosexually focused), sex-positive, non-judgmental tome.

    First off, it has the very best sexual anatomy illustrations I’ve ever seen–and I don’t mean drawings that look like cadaver cutlets, I mean clear, bold illustrations that show anatomy for pleasure (as opposed to reproduction) like no other book in print. And trust me, learning pleasure anatomy is the key to giving and getting it good. Anatomy, sex toys, porn, positions, oral sex, anal sex, sex and disability, romance, hair removal, bugs, STD’s, Barbie, birth control, prostate, g-spot, straight, gay, bi, masculine, feminine, parents talking to teens about sex... phew, and I’m only skimming the surface. Good luck finding a topic *not* in this fabulous book. Make this one the centerpiece of your library, and augment with topic-specific books (many are recommended within the text). ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars A good read, but not a good sex guide
    The Guide is written in a clear, casual style and is peppered with enjoyable quotes from real couples and sex therapists. The line drawings were beautiful.

    I can honestly say that I curled up and read the 700 page tome like it was light beach reading. It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

    However, I would not buy this book as a sex bible. First, it covers far more about the intricacies of sex as a cultural phenomenon than you want in a book of sex advice and tips. Whole chapters are devoted to such sexual tangents as the role of sex in religion or the history of syphilis. While this is fun reading -- and great for understanding how sex works in an emotional sense -- it takes up room that could be better spent giving more practical tips. For example, the chapter on sex during menstruation: the author spends several pages discussing the history of the development of sanitary napkins and tampons, more discussing the shame or acceptance people feel about menstruation in the workplace, and a few pages musing on whether theories about stress leads to earlier menarche. There are perhaps six lines about sex, to the effect of "Some people like having intercourse during a woman's period. Some don't. Blood washes out of sheets, usually." At the end of the chapter he justifies his ommitance of the discussion of oral sex by joking that anyone who would consider such a thing must be a vampire. There was NO discussion of methods of making sex during a period cleaner or more enjoyable, NO discussion of alternatives to intercourse, NO discussion of potential risks or lack thereof in performing oral sex during the period, etc. That's just one small chapter -- in general, the book was high on interesting fluff but low on useful content. It's a great addition to your bookshelf, but get another book if you want a real guide to sex.

    As a warning, this book is very clearly written by a straight male and as a result the book is heavily slanted for heterosexual couples. The author does make attempts to be open minded, but rarely includes useful information on lesbian sex. He assumes the reader is in a heterosexual relationship -- if you aren't, you may want to look elsewhere.

    5-0 out of 5 stars YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!
    The above is my response to this book. When I first started looking though it and reading some of what Paul Joannides has to say, I thought, "Right on!" And the more I read, the more I felt this way. Mr. Joannides deserves some kind of "Medal of Honor" for writing a comprehensive, non-judgmental and at times hip and irreverent look at the world of sexuality. He leaves virtually no topic uncovered. Dang, why wasn't a book like this around twenty years ago? I could have really used it back then! He also obviously put a great deal of effort and love into this book which spans almost 700 pages. Not only is it informative and humorous, but it gets its subject matter across in a down-to-earth and common-sense style. I also loved all the illustrations in the book....

    This book in my humble opinion should be mandatory reading for every Human Sexuality class taught, it truly is that good. I lost count of all the various chapters in the book, but among them are [chapters on various types of sex] sex and aging, and a chapter about sex laws (and some of them are truly shocking). Most chapters also feature comments from readers of earlier editions of this book or those who filled out surveys on the publisher's web site; all of which are also highly informative and interesting.

    I give this book five stars, only because I can't give it six. Highly recommended to anyone who wants to learn more about sex, relationships, what makes the "opposite gender" act the way they do, in other words virtually everyone!

    5-0 out of 5 stars On Every Bedside Table
    A MUST read! It's filled full with pertinent information, honest issues and concerns, and wit that will constantly keep you laughing. It's written in a fashion that is highly humane as well as informative. I've lent this book to several friends, who in turn, have agreed that this is one of the greatest (and most humorous) guides to sex.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Simply must have it
    A girlfriend and I now joke that we are going to bring happiness to the world, near and far, by spreading this book. It has something for EVERYONE (this coming from a hetero point of view, not sure about other orientations), no matter your desires and wants, or level of modesty or experience. It is a broad, comprehensive reference - factual, informative, and hilarious. It makes good sex accessible to all. You will not regret ever owning this book, just that it took you so long to find it. But then again, you'll be so delighted you found it, you'll just have no regrets at all.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Politically Correct Psychologist
    This is a good reference work with lots of coverage of all things sexual, including some I'd never heard of. However, the political editoralizing is hard to take some time. The most extreme attitude is toward lingerie. The author actually thinks its a plot by business merchandising types. He's angry about it! This is not a normal male attitude. I think the author's wife should get credit for editing his work.
    Many of the author's assertions are supported by no, or the very weakest sort of evidence. Research results that support his opinions is always welcome.
    A more serious error is that the author is always encouraging men to ask women for permission on what to do. This is a big turn-off to all the women I know. This is politics triumphing over authentic sexual feeling.
    Reading this has made me aware of how the sexual how-to literature is full of unsubstantiated value judgements. Want to write about your opinions and get them read? Write a sex-ed self-help book. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Best book on the subject to date
    I must say this is the best book currently available on the topic of meeting women today. Unlike other books that are mostly vague, uninformed nonsense, The System is direct, specific knowledge on what works. You'll be able to read the book, head to the local mall (I've done this) and immediately be able to test parts of The System, in a non-threatening way. I can't recommend this book highly enough. It's the real deal.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Women are a Headache!!!
    WOMEN are a headache!!! They drive me nuts. I have tried to figure them out for as long as I remember. People like family members, friends and peers give different advice but none seems to be on point; they just tell you a little bit of the truth but they can't put everything together.

    Fortunately, during my quest for the truth about women I have encountered "The System". It is absolutely amazing how this book can tell you everything relevant there is to know about the nature of women.

    The book has answered all of the inconsistencies on women that I have thought about over the years:
    (1) why are the hot women I am attracted to not interested in me; yet the ugly ones that I refuse are all over me.
    (2) why do these really hot women go to clubs yet they don't want to hook up with any guy.
    (3) how do you easily identify women that are truly interested in you.
    (4) how to avoid being used by women.
    (5) how to stop wasting time with women.

    After reading "The System" I have a complete understanding of what I am to do when dealing with women; this book ended my frustration with them. I have verified and applied the techniques in this book and they have worked many times; I have also experimented following my old routine with women; after applying my old techniques I have seen how they don't work at all and lead to utlimate failure; yet when I applied "The System" it has always given me rewarding results.

    One of the most memorable things this book has taught me is how to be prepared for that one moment of truth. It shows you how Michael Jordan doesn't waste his shots but just waits for that opportunity and takes full advantage of it; Jordan takes advantage b/c he knows what he is doing and teaching you what you are supposed to do through understanding how women interact is what this book prepares you for.

    Knowledge is power and I feel that this book has provided me with a lot of power in one of the most important aspects of any man's life.

    I hope you find "The System" to be as insightful and useful to you as it has been for me.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, straight to the point
    The author made a lot of good points about the process of picking up a girl. I couldn't believe there was even a flowchart. I liked the simplicity of the book. It was easy to read, the points were very well supported, and I didn't get the fluff that I get from many of the other books on this subject. Overall, I thought it was pretty entertaining as well.

    5-0 out of 5 stars A girl's opinion of the System
    The book was actually on the mark with how to drive women crazy. Yes, we like to have our way but everyone likes a challenge. He was also right about nightclubs and body language. If you don't get it - you won't get it! Overall, I think this guy knows what he's talking about. I think guys that read this book should be able to go out and get girls from it.

    5-0 out of 5 stars WOW!
    All I have to say is WOW!
    Amazing, efficient, introspective, pointed - this was an incredible book. I am actually inspired by this. I've never been more clear about the 'dating game' than I am now. I think this is one of those book that I'll keep referring to for years to come. ... Read more

    Barbara Keesling's The Good Girls Guide To Bad Girl Sex: An Indispensable Resource For Pleasure And Seduction is a book specifically written in response to a society that condemns female sexual pleasure as "bad", and applauds female reservations to sexual impulses as "good." So, how is a woman who has been conditioned to be a "good girl" to enjoy a fulfilling sexual relationship with her partner? The Good Girls Guide To Bad Girl Sex offers exercises, advice, and guidance to help "good girls" learn to enjoy "bad girl" sex - i.e. learn to enjoy her sexuality without shame. Highly recommended reading for both single and married women.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Way to be a CONFIDENT WOMAN!
    I read this book and my friends can't wait for each other to read it, so 3 of them have already bought their own copies!

    If you want a book on sexual positions and techniques, this book is not for you. However, if you are a woman who wants to learn that it is OK to be sexy and how to incorperate sexyness into everyday of your life (as well as redefine your idea about what it means to be "bad") this book is awesome! It is really about becoming an autonomous, confidant, adult woman! It's great!

    My self-esteem is rising as I do the excersizes (don't worry, most of them are even FUN!) in the book. My posture has changed, I no longer have clothes in my warddrobe that I do not enjoy wearing, and it has opened up a whole range of wonderful conversation with my girls. In fact, if you liked this book or are interesting in hearing more from people that have read it, check out the Yahoo! Group "confident women"!

    Basically, it is easy to read and full of great information for women at any stage in life that would like some encouragement to show their natural sexy attitude!

    Read and Enjoy!!!

I was hoping for something spicy, not the lame (B)ad-libs. Pahlease!! I do not need anyone telling me how to talk, walk or breathe. I was hoping for info on how to really put some pizazze in my love life, not cheesy stuff I knew in HS. Save your money, you can read more informative things on the web for FREE!!

    This book is awful and a waste of time and money. It's also incredibly shallow, focusing mostly on clearing out your closet and performing the "fun" exercises she describes on yourself.

    I thought the book was great.I like having one comprehensive "go-to" for questions that come up in the confusing area of pleasure when kids, jobs, husband all seem to be at odds with it!I really enjoyed the chapters that focused on the emotional and relationship health side of things.The information about sexual empowerment was also a must for anyone who feels as though breast-feeding and exhaustion have brought this side of your life to an end.An excellent resource.

    I was reluctant to believe I could learn anything new from this dynamic duo. AFter the first best-selling book and the media craze they've enjoyed in the last two years, I thought I had seen and heard enough. Well, NOT the case. While Secrets does contain some obvious details about women's sexuality, it did contain some relevant and exciting new data. I am a researcher and was thrilled to learn that the Berman's invested in doing a National Survey on this subject. Hopefully this will spur the FDA as well as other goverment funding agenceys to fund research in this much needed area. I commend the Berman's for their dedication to the field and their ability to communicate to the public. I recomend this book to women as well as their partners. I'm looking forward to the Secrets for Men. ... Read more

    5-0 out of 5 stars Read The Book! Do'nt Become Another Statistic!
    I belong to a Bible study that is reading this book. What an amazing time it has been to fully ingest God's word and understand WHY HE created sex in the first place. Our views of sex have gone from to procreate to do it whenever and where ever with whom ever you want. I think that many of us Americans can say we tried that and what did it get us but some mixed up emotions and feeling in some ways used up? Was it all it was cracked up to be? Perhaps it wasn't all it was cracked up to be because we weren't going about it in the way it was planned in the first place. I always thought Christians or God's way would be for prudes....hello? Have you read the Bible? I hadn't. I had no clue. I had no idea that if you follow God's plan for sex in marriage ONLY that it could be so much better. I had no idea that God commands us to have sex almost contantly! We are only to obstain to pray for a short time and then rejoin so as to not be tempted by Satan? Read the book. Be transformed. I think this book or any book on this topic should be a must for any young couple deciding to get married. Heck, it should be earlier introduced to kids that question sex, so that they truly understand what God had planned...and to abstain not to be a prude, but because the best is yet to come. Renew your mind. Change your attitude. Enjoy God's gifts. These are lessons I have had to learn.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Made me blush a few times...
    but pretty much answered all of my questions! Ladies, have you ever been sitting with your friends, and really want to bring up a topic like this, but just can't find the nerve, for fear that you'll be labeled some kind of immoral nymphomaniac freak? Well I have, plenty of times, and that's why I'm so thankful for this book. It's like having 2 godly best friends to ask your most intimate (and sometimes embarrassing questions) to. Some of the advice surprised me, such as ok-ing the use of vibrators but vetoing pornography, plus giving all the personal anecdotes and biblical references in praise of everything from orgasms to oral sex. This book will help Christian women create the kind of sexual experiences they truly desire within their marriage. Also included is what to do when your sex drive is revved up but your husband's is in low-idle.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Hope For The Next Ten Years of Marriage and Sex
    This wonderfully written and detail-specific book has transformed not only my sexual relationship with my husband but my image of myself as a Godly woman trying to walk wholly with the Lord. Linda and Lorraine speak frankly about attitudes and relationships, both with my husband and with my God. I did not expect a book on sexuality to have such a deep impact on my spiritual walk but it makes sense for it to have this effect now - it's an area of my life I was trying to work on without the Lord and failing miserably. I'm looking forward to doing this as a group Bible study with other women from my church. Whether you're really struggling with sexual issues or just want to move on to a new level of intimacy with your husband, this book is for you.

    5-0 out of 5 stars For every woman
    This book provides an awesome resource for all women, whether you are struggling with issues of intimacy or even if your sexual relationship with your husband is great. The authors give inspiring reasons to keep your sexual relationship with your husband as a lifelong priority and plenty of fun ideas to keep your sexual passion growing. This book includes a powerful study program to help grow in your sexuality as well as find healing from past hurst and mistakes; it makes a very good mentoring or counseling guide. I worked through it personally with a trusted mentor and found that to be the time I have personally grown the most and my marriaged is greatly changed because of it. There are some tough issues and deep hurts addressed here. I really recommend working through the book with someone else because sometimes it seems to difficult to work through these issues without someone else's accountability and encouragement. As other reviewers mentioned, it does not address fertility, and I think that issue is beyond the scope of this one volume and deserves a book of its own to be addressed properly and sensitively.

    This book really helped me to view sex through God's eyes. I feel rejuvinated in this area because God has opened my eyes to the way He not Hollywood thinks about sex.

    5-0 out of 5 stars "My God,it's full of stars"
    This book explains the psychology of seduction. With examples throughout history it shows what works, and what doesn't. It doesn't start from the humanistic premise that all people are generally good, but from the biblical idea that "all men are evil" and will do evil. This makes the book downright devilish, and extremely practical and useful.
    Approach indirectly, play the coquette, mix pleasure with pain, insinuate, "Use the demonic power of words to sow confusion", be hard to figure out. These are just some examples and this stuff works.
    This is a handbook on manipulation. Although it can also be used to avoid being manipulated (very usefull, indeed).
    Do yourself a favor, learn from the past, not only your past but the past of peoples from the dawn of time. This book was worth every cent.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent, Provocative, and Useful
    First, if you have read Robert Greene & Joost Elffers' previous book "The 48 Laws of Power" then you'll notice a similar format in this book. Which means you'll be given a description of the chapter's main focus, then given a Historical (some actual seducers who lived, though most are from literature)example of that topic in action, followed by the author's interpretation of why it worked, and then "keys" to the success of it, then ending with a "reversal" (how it can backfire) to using the technique/method discussed. Which is one of the reasons I enjoyed this book (And have re-read it from time to time)
    From the most famous seducer, Casanova, to the first "bad boy" Lord Byron, to the female seductress' of History and literature, this is one of the most complete and well researched books on seduction I have ever read. And therein lay a controversy. You see, with so much information on the subject, one could easily use this book to play serious mindgames on those they want to seduce. But, as a mentor of mine said, "Technonolgy is morally neutral." So use the information as you wish, and take responsibility for what happens as a result.
    That's My Opinion, But You're Welcome To It!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Perceptive and challenging
    'The Art of Seduction' is about willfully exploiting other people's weaknesses in order to seduce them.

    The book deals not only with romantic seduction, but also the type of charismatic seduction that allows certain political leaders for example to wield enormous power over the public.

    The type of seduction talked about here is more than the everyday level of admiration, it's about how to really get under people skins, how to make them obsessed with you. Not surprisingly the author makes it clear that not everyone can be seduced in this way, that you need to find someone who has some large hole in their character ready to be exploited.

    The book is divided into two sections. The first outlines different types of powerfully seductive characters - whose traits you might nurture in yourself. For example, the 'Natural' who embodies childhood, playfulness, spontineity and unpretentiousness. The second half of the book outlines a number of strategies and maneuvers to be employed in the seduction process. One example is to 'Stir up the transgressive and taboo'. Another small section explains a number of 'victim' types, their character weaknesses and how to exploit them. For example you may seduce a 'Professor' type - the intellectual who cannot leave their head, by providing an escape to physicality.

    Many points are illustrated using examples from historical and literary figures, including relative recent examples such as JFK.

    Although i doubt i will ever consciously use any of the techniques outlined, still I found the book quite perceptive and fascinating. One thing I repeated wondered is why you would want to seduce someone you have such a cynical understanding of the weaknesses of. Still I have no doubt that highly seductive people instinctively employ many of the techniques mentioned. I'm no psychologist, but many of the book's remarks on human nature rang true to me.

    I doubt the book's usefulness as a Manual for Seduction (those who need self-help book are no doubt seduced by the idea of this!), but I'd recommend it to anyone with a deep interest in how the world works.

    5-0 out of 5 stars tongue-in-cheek !
    it's ironic that most reviewers are so serious about whether this books works as a how-to manual on seduction... they missed the point that this is a witty, juicy, lightly intellectual take on the history and psychology of seduction. it transcends any moralist stances and is a wonderfully modern, entertaining read. mischievious and complex. rewarding.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Just the hostorical facts
    Overall a very good book. It's not a step by step seduction guide that would instantly turn you into a modern day casanova. Wouldn't that be graet? It rather gives you some historic perspective on how the 'players' back in the days used seduction. ... Read more

    "Women are like golf courses," writes sex educator Lou Paget. "Even though you may have played a course a hundred times, chances are your approach shot rarely lands in the same place on the green." How to Give Her Absolute Pleasure was written for men who want to please women. Much of the book focuses on foreplay (Paget comments that we need to rename it) designed to "excite both her mind and her body." The author offers a variety of strategies for romancing and relaxing a woman and making her feel comfortable. If you don't, she claims, "nothing you can do can rev herengine". Then she describes ways of "kissing her, touching her, and teasing her." Paget includes "a topographical guide" of a woman's body, starting with the sensual areas of the head and face and moving down. She describes ways to massage, caress, lick, kiss, and otherwise excite all these regions. She also discusses lubricants ("slippery, slidy, marvelous stuff"), condoms, manual stimulation, "the art of tongue," sex toys, and a variety of positions (clearly illustrated) for everything you might do. The book is in no way formulaic--in fact, Paget continually stresses that some women love having a particular body part touched in a certain way, while others can't stand it. Whether you're a novice or consider yourself sexually sophisticated, you'll learn plenty from Paget. --Joan Price ... Read more

    4-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful
    This book has a wonderful and broad base of knowledge within, doubtless based on ms. paget's own experience and expertise in the subject matter. It was a delight to read and opened my eyes to a few new ideas as well.

    I have been in pursuit of sexual fulfillment for quite some time, and this book is one of the better offerings on the market treating the subject of female pleasure from a woman's point of view. Which is why I gave it to my boyfriend to read -- but unfortunately, he didn't enjoy it quite as much as I did. He has subsequently read (and put into very effective use) the book "Secrets of Sensual Lovemaking" by Tom Leonardi, and reports that it's man-to-man tone and language was more accessible and enjoyable for him. He and I also enjoyed and greatly benefitted from the dvd "New Sex Now" and would advise all those interested in maximizing their sexual potential to investigate this and the other two as well.

    Good job, ms. paget. Please keep up the great work!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Concise guide for men to Love their Women
    An excellent book, created out of experience from Lou Paget's seminars and workshops. The techniques are well explained and illustrated, the tone of writing is on a personal basis making the information easy to accept and apply. Of at least equal importance to the great variety and explanation of "how to" techniques, is the early discussion of setting the mood, consideration of caring approach , and simple "partner considerations" that do so much to pave the way to opening the mind for rewarding and exciting new fulfillment in sexual relationships. I sure recommend getting the first of Lou Paget's book, "How to be a Great Lover" to go with this (gift it to your partner!), they make a GREAT compliment to each other and makes a great mutual gift for the lady and gentleman in the relationship. From mood setting before the foreplay to the ultimate "breathtaking" inimacy and beyond, this is very worth reading and USING! We will continue to enjoy these books for a LONG time! Thanks Lou and Tara!

The book is well written, easy to read and reference, and has fairly helpful, if at times funny, sketches to guide you along. It has made me a much better man when it comes to the lost (and never talked about) art of foreplay.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Mars and Venus in the Bedroom: You Have to Have This Book!
    I've been married to the same person for 28 years and always thought our sex life was great, but when we read this book (yes, we both read it) we realised how much we still didn't know, hadn't tried, and hadn't communicated about. This book has enhanced an already great relationship - just think what it could do for one in trouble! This is written plainly, interestingly, and is very accurate - from both the woman's and the man's point of view. There were a couple of things that seemed corny to me, but may not seem that way to someone who is 20 years younger than me (I'm 48). Buy this book! I guarantee you will get at least one insight into sex that will help your love life, no matter how wise you think you already are!

    5-0 out of 5 stars Very Informative Text
    John Gray's book is an excellent resource for people who are interested in improving their physical relationships. After reading each section thoroughly, I realized for the first time that there was more to the enjoyment of intimacy than I had imagined. Chapter 3, titled 'Once A Year Is Not Enough', made me re-think my schedule. I still only get it once a year, but at least Gray has made me aware.

    Another excellent piece of advice comes in Chapter 5, where Gray states controversially, 'Don't be afraid to experiment; try new things, like undressing. It may seem unnatural at first, but hey...we've all got wobbly bits.'

    This is also a valuable manual for those just starting a physical relationship. Topics for the 'nookie' novice include 'How Come You've Got THREE?', 'Batteries Are A Girl's Best Friend', 'No, Susan, Fellatio Wasn't That Italian Film Director Married to Sophia Loren' and 'Bob and Carol and Bill and Monica'.

    'Mars and Venus in the Bedroom' is a 'must-read' book. I can't wait for Gray's next one, 'Mars and Venus in the Boardroom'. Coroprate America is already ducking for cover.

    3-0 out of 5 stars Great for laughs
    I got it,
    and it has lots of great advice! I would recommend that it be read with a lard chunk of salt (in some sections).

    A couple of things made me LMAO and I had to share.

    1. He devotes 1 1/2 pages in telling a man how to deliver oral sex to a woman. And not very well either. He mentions the G-spot, but basically says "It would create preformance anxiety in the man if he kept trying to find it---so he won't get too technical" so he leaves it at that.

    Excuse me! I nearly dropped the book at this point (like, he could have devoted 10 pages to that alone).

    2. HOWEVER, he devotes 5 plus pages!!! on giving oral to a guy! Going into extreme, intricate detail of every millimeter of area to be covered.

    In reading this, there is no doubt about Dr. Gray's gender.

    His justification? Men like it better than women (erm, excuse me?! Was I asked???)

    3. He does this lingerie=mood chart that had me falling out of bed "If she is wearing black lace, it means she is in this kinda mood, if she is wearing white, it means she feels virginal, if she is in pink, it means she feels romantic."

    Again, WHAT? How about I look pretty dang good in black lack, the pink doesn't scratch and the white doesn't ride up. Maybe he is color blind.

    4. Oy, and don't get me started in the section about Quickies (I do agree to some point, but the reciprocal part isn't fair, balanced). Cuddles for a quickie? Where did he find these people! It came off as extremely cold blooded, with the woman lying there like a log being perfectly OK to the hubby (argh!) That alone would be a 'he needed a killin'' defense in a murder trial.

    All that aside, it does have some helpful pointers. Buy the book used....and cheap. ... Read more

    3-0 out of 5 stars Why Sex is Sex
    There is a minor truth-in-advertising issue regarding Why Is Sex Fun?: The Evolution of Human Sexuality, by physiologist Jared Diamond: The title question is never really addressed. The true theme seems to be How Sex Came to be Sex as We Know It. Not that this isn't interesting in its own right, of course. It's just that the original question is worthy of discussion too.

    Why is Sex Fun? reads like a lecture series rather than a book. Apparently intended to provide the reader with an overview of the latest thinking on the evolutionary aspects of the subject, this short work includes sections on different sexual (and mate) selection strategies employed by males and females (presumably based on unequal "investments" in the methods of getting one's genes into the next generation); lactation (why milk is produced by females, but not, as a rule, males); how and why humans, almost uniquely, came to engage in engage in recreational sex; the unequal domestic roles played by males and females, particularly in child rearing; female menopause (which is, again, nearly unique to humans); and sexual signaling (Diamond considers penis length in human males to be a prime example, but not necessarily a signal directed at females).

    As fascinating as these subjects are, there is much more that is left out. Any full discussion of human sexuality, especially with the high-order concept of "fun" in its presumed abstract, needs to deal with that odd species' whole gamut of non-procreational expression: homosexuality, old-age love, and sex-as-power, for non-inclusive example. But Why is Sex Fun? treats the very large subject of recreational sex only from the "selfish gene" point of view. Even then, there is at least one major methodological criticism: Most evolutionary biologists and evolutionary psychologists go to great lengths to bring out the importance of "ancestral environment". That is, gene-based behavioral tendencies have evolved over a great deal of time, so it doesn't do a lot of good to consider them only from the standpoint of a modern participant. This problem crops up in Diamond's discussion of male hunting strategies. In a modern hunter-gatherer society, men typically go for the "big kill" (a large mammal, for instance), while women are more content to gather roots and so on. Diamond makes the point that the male strategy makes no sense nutritionally, so the answer must be found in differential sexual strategies. However, the possibility is not mentioned that hunting patterns may have evolved when big game was, in fact, rather more plentiful than it is today.

    All this is a pity, because we know, from the author's other works (especially the wonderfully told Guns, Germs, and Steel), that he is quite capable of a fully formed presentation. Sex deserves it.

    4-0 out of 5 stars Why This Book is Fun
    This short work by the author of the classic "Guns, Germs, and Steel" seeks to explain the evolutionary paths of distinctive human sexual characteristics. It does not, however, attempt to explain all sexual behavior in humans, focusing instead on general sexual behavior between men and women. Masturbation, homosexuality, and many other types of sexual behavior are not touched upon here, so if you find any of them fun, you will have to look elsewhere for reasons explaining why.

    Humans have several sexual traits that, even if not unique, are still highly unusual in animal species -- concealed ovulation in females, near constant female receptivity to sex, recreational sex, and female menopause. Diamond shows the most likely evolutionary explanations for why humans possess these traits. Some of the explanations are more plausible than others, but almost all of the arguments are interesting to read.

    As usual, Diamond writes well; the book is clear and concise and can be finished in an evening. Also, as usual, Diamond can't help but let his politics show in his writing; in one chapter, he gives a bizarre boost to male lactation and the notion that men might someday help their wives breastfeed their young.

    1-0 out of 5 stars Weak as lolly water...
    Why are others so impressed with this book? Beats the heck outa me - the book is *speculative* - and the author admits it right up front in the preface. Yet I have seen it referred to as an authority on sexuality - go figure.

    Diamond spends much time discussing the sexual habits of other species but never really shows why this is relevant or instructive in connection with human sexuality. He demonstrates that human sexuality is different from that of other species: But so what? How does that advance our understanding of sexuality in humans? Diamond is unable or unwilling to elucidate. A strictly lightweight book suitable only as a coffee table decoration.

    The bottom line: The author does not even answer his own question posed in the title. Why is sex fun? Read this and you will be none the wiser...

    4-0 out of 5 stars A quickie from Diamond
    A short, fun book from physiologist Diamond. Not up to the standard of the Third Chimpanzee or Guns, germs and steel, but a worthwile addition to the Science Masters series

    3-0 out of 5 stars A fun read, but not as fun as sex!
    While reading this book, one cannot help but compare it with Diamond's earlier works, in particular, Guns, germs and steel (GGS). While GGS comes across as a work of a life time, this book seems hastily written, to cash in on GGS's fame. Now, don't get me wrong, there are a lot of interesting trivia that you end up learning about sexuality: both human and animal. However, the fundamental theme of "Why sex is fun?" seems to be lost amidst all the interesting trivia. The facts, theories and hypotheses about sexuality in the book resemble more a program on MTV with fast and random style editing and closeup shots that lacks a principally sound story. Having said all this, I would still recommend that the book be read, since it throws interesting light on a topic that occupies a good part of human thought and behavior: Sex. ... Read more

My boyfriend is a very quiet individual, but he started shaking, grabbing for the pillow and cursing(in a good way). I have shared the book a with a 2 of my female friends and a week later one of their boyfriends sent me flowers and a thank you card while the other one bought my gas for a week( in L.A. gas is 2.35 per gallon, and I have an SUV)

    5-0 out of 5 stars What are you doing down there? I just wondered:)
    Okay, I must admit, I have no real need to know how to perform cunnilingus but I just wondered about the 'how to' involved in this practice. I was surprised to find out all sorts of other great stuff in this book.

    Now that I have read this book, I think that in a life or death situation I certainly could perform this erotic practice but I don't think there are any life or death situations involved unless we are talking 'the little death' of orgasm. As a woman, I did have a good idea involved in the 'how to' but now I have a knowledgeable book sense of what men and lesbians are experiencing.

    The book is well written and to the point, full of the usual female physiology, anatomy, and safe sex but I must say done very well. I didn't care for the chapter titles, not titillating enough for my taste with the exception of chapter five titled 'taste and textures'. I did learn some great facts for example the ph of the vagina and the ph of seaman. Oh yeah there is a whole chapter on tongue techniques and positions. Oh and we do touch on some other practices in the sex arena but this book is focused on the giving and receiving of cunnilingus.

    This book was spiced up quite nicely with the great short erotic stories at the end of each chapter written by Alison Tyler and sprinkled through out are some real people insights about going down. Also, included are some really wonderful illustrations.

    Over all a good instruction book on this oral erotic practice enjoyed by so many.


    5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent book
    This is THE book to get on going down on a woman. Most other sex guides don't cover the vast amount of ground the author covers, and even though I knew a good amount of the anatomy stuff I learned a whole lot about how to use my mouth and hands. It's essential reading for guys who want to know exactly how to make women come and what happens physiologically when they do. Plus the sections on using extra tricks with cunnilingus like blindfolds, sex toys, fantasies, and advanced stuff makes it a book I keep using. And she's a great young writer who brings a breath of fresh air and a savvy sense of style to the world of sex writing.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Yes please.
    The fact that my husband went out and bought this book for us on his own accord all ready was stimulating. Great book, I love being the experimental candidate for all the suggestions. Also, get, get, get the DVD "New Sex Now"--- wow, wow. Who says that your sex life goes down after marriage, ours is hotter than ever.

    5-0 out of 5 stars Ohhhhhhhh Yes this is sooooo goooood !
    This book is a must for any bedroom library. My wife and I have been stocking our shelves every few years to keep things spicy. I have and I know my wife is throughly enjoying me trying out new ways to stimulate our "close contact sports". The book is frank, well written, it doesn't attempt to steer clear of this subject in any way. The suggestions for other reading were also a help. Buy this book and ENJOY !

    As a straight male, I found this book highly informative, helpful and my wife has a smile on her face! Finally a book written by a woman about women telling you stuff that most women fail to tell you. ... Read more
