This book makes a lot of very interesting points about sexuality. It is also written in a way that walks people through self-exploration and how to become closer to someone who you are in a relationship with through this process. It gets boring and redundant at parts but the main points are worthwhile.

This book is so good! The author shows us the truth of human sexuality and fantasies. All people have them, but very few people talk about them.
It was so enlightening, empowering, validating, comforting, and encouraging. All adults should read this book!

Interesting angle on the topic. Lots of case study, I'm glad the author is so clear about his personal biases so that this work can be more easily translated into my own work style.
