Review by Dana Vigilante on Jul 25th 2006
This book was an absolute blast to
read. As a single thirty-something, I enjoyed every single page. The entire
book consists of interviews with women who range in age from early twenties to
late sixties. The topics discussed are as personal as the input the women
give. Topics range from threesome's, married sex vs. single sex and one very
humorous chapter asking women to divulge the oddest place they have ever had
sex (hands down, at a Grateful Dead concert was the most imaginative).
The goal of this book is basically
to educate men as to what women want, desire and crave in the bedroom (and
bathtub, handcuffs, hotel room, swimming pool, etc…). This book should be a
mandatory read for all of the men who think they've cornered the market on
sexual techniques, romance, passion and pleasure. The stories the women in
this book tell about men they've dated and the sexual disasters that they've
encountered kept me in stitches for the three nights that it took me to read
the entire book. Personal hygiene among men was also spoken about. For the
record guys, bad breath, passing gas and belching are all definite "don'ts",
whether you are single, married or just plain old dating -- don't do it.
This book is geared toward both
single and married men, as well as the young and old, as it discusses "dating"
sex, "casual" sex, "married" sex and every other type of
sex you can think of.
While the book does cover somewhat
serious topics such as marriage and fatherhood and becoming a better lover
after going through both, it tends more to be a lighthearted read geared toward
men who really need to polish their sexual skills as well as re-educate
themselves on what women today really want.
