I read this book in my teens and boy did I learn a lot !

Intimate relationship is not a taboo. I do encourage educational books that cover unspeakable topics.
Lou Paget hat für ihre Leserinnen und Seminarteilnehmer keine Mühe gescheut: sie hat Fachliteratur gelesen, Filme und Pornos angesehen, um sich für ihre Seminare fit zum Thema menschliche Sexualität zu machen. Sie stellte fest, dass seit Zeiten des indischen Kamasutra alle Informationen aus männlicher Sicht verfasst wurden. Ihr Ratgeber im klassischen amerikanischen Stil "Ein 44-jähriger Rechtsanwalt aus Boston sagte mir..." trägt zur Erotik zwischen Mann und Frau leider keine neuen Perspektiven ...more

Recommends it for: Everyone involved with penises.
Recommended to Meen by: The sex/self-help bookshelf at BAM.
About ten years ago I finally left (for good) the cheating asshole biker I had been with since high school. All that time with him piled on top of a lot of childhood sexual baggage meant that my sexual self-esteem was pretty much nonexistent. However, I had met a young (hothothot in the nerdy way that I like) guy and was planning on having sex with him eventually, but I wanted to know that I was doing it well. So, I bought this book, some Astroglide, and a cucumber from the market (as Lou sugges ...more

Lou is a friend and I recommend all of her books. She once asked me a very good question, "Why do you think we don't have a word like 'Feminist' for men who advocate for male causes?" She brings sex back to a place of normalcy, health, and the bonding glue in our relationships. Thanks for your hard work and genius Lou. BTY, Lou is a scientist with biology degrees.
I read this book in 1999 when I heard it discussed on a radio staion and the "classes" the author teaches.
I loved this book and it gave me some "mad skills" in some areas where before I was clueless. Over the years I have given this book to several friends...and gotten several Thank You cards after. If you think know everything there is to know, read this book!

Not so much new stuff - but I learned about lubricants - and got one or two nice ideas.. Really nicely written and I think it'll help you a lot when you are insecure.

As always I think: Knowledge helps to beat stage-fright.. ;")
Have bought this book 3 times now and it's still not on my shelves because it's very borrowable... I probably learned the most from this book over any book on my shelf!
It was worth a quick read, but I didn't learn much that I didn't already know. The best section was the chapter on manual stimulation.
Amy Gatten
WOW! Amazing! I picked this up hoping to learn a little & improve my marriage. I learned a *lot* of things/tips/tricks!
Absolutlt excellent. So informative and creative and down-right sexy! I learned a lot!
Yvonne Kerner
I don't know when I read it .... but it's a great book! I "learned" a lot! he he ;o)
Oh man ... wish a few of my ex-partners had read this ... :-)
This wasn't anything revolutionary. Pretty much a how-to on oral sex.
Unapologetically detailed... Ms Paget does not hold back!
