Prepare to enter a fantasy world. A world where clothes get folded just so, delicious dinners await, and flatulence is just not that funny. Give the fairer sex what they really want: beautiful PG photos of hunky men cooking, listening, asking for directions, accompanied by steamy captions: "I love a clean house!" or "As long as I have two legs to walk on, you'll never take ...more

I haven't read this yet, but the cover illustration already tells me this is just a little joke. To be quite honest, if we straight women did per occasion feel like checking out some eye-candy and ogling any sexy hot hunks, we have to head straight over to the gay male shelves... there just truly doesn't seem to be anything on the market for straight females.

I'm pretty sure it's just as healthy for females to enjoy looking at attractive male bodies as it apparently is for males looking at female

This is basically a one joke book - pictures of pretty men doing housework with captions proclaiming words that women long for but men seldom utter like "God, that's SO interesting. Tell me more." and "Have another piece of cake. I don't like you looking so thin."

I've never heard a man say this.

It gets old pretty quickly, but this might be a cute gift to pass around a bachelorette party (while you're waiting for the fireman stripper to arrive.)

No LOL's from me. No sir.

Pictures of guys doing things like:
-taking out the trash
-saying they will get the crying baby
-asking for directions

Come on. It's all a bunch of played out sexist stereotypical shit that was old a decade ago. And for what it's worth, the pictures are not all that great and the models are average at best. At least make it artsy and give me some great eye candy. geez.

The only thing that got a bemused chuckle out of me was the 3 pages dedicated to foreplay. The fi

So you know how they always say that it's not the hardcore sex that women are interested in with respect to porn, it's seeing chemistry between the partners, it's taking time, it's plot and character? Well, if you agree, this is the book for you, lady. Each page of this little book features a manly hunk of beefcake, ready to address your deepest desires. Without giving it all away, let me tell you, a feather duster, protracted foreplay, a man ready to make your fantasies come to life, and even a ...more

Sexy men doing all those boring chores and making it look like they love what they are doing and it really turns them on. Perfect.

some photos were very funny, some were a bit cliche. here's a shocker: some women are actually not obsessed with shoes and don't want a doormat for a boyfriend.

This is a cute little book, please do NOT let the title throw you off in the slightest! IT is only meant as a tongue in cheeky reference type humor like Ryan Gosling saying Girl I Love It When You Knit Me Those Mitts Can I Watch While I Make You Dinner...! Each page has a full color glossy of a handsome bachelor with a great job and great pecs, saying something to you, girl, that you know you like! A few of MY faves...: (wearing dish gloves and biceps...) I like to get these things done before I ...more

Sexy as f*ck.

Nothing as titillating as hearing your SO say "honey I am wrong" and saying "honey keeps those two bags, you deserve it" or "honey, I traded my truck for a minivan. from now on so you can drive a fun car."

This book is highly mythical but enjoyable nonetheless.

NOT PORN! I was taken aback when I saw this at my chiropractor's office but I gave her the benefit of the doubt amd opened it. It is absolutely hilarious and perfect to give as a gag gift. In fact, a friend that I shared it with went out and bought several copies to do just that.

Hilarious book illustrating what really turns women on.
"That's so interesting, tell me more."
Pretty stereotypical as far as "this is what women REALLY WANT".

More like: These are exaggerated versions of things that men should be doing anyway, or these are things women hear from their gay bestie instead.

Heck, I know more than a few women who would be pissed to miss the NFL playoffs.

Needs actual porn/erotica. lol. Also most of the models weren't all that attractive.

But two of the older women in the house got a kick out of it, and not like I paid anything for it since it was just on the

This book can hardly be considered pornography in its usual sense. Rather, it is a collection of full color photographs of attractive men doing such things as vacuuming, ironing, and doing laundry, accompanied by captions such as, "I always want to be sure we have chocolate in the house" and "I love a clean house!" Perhaps this is porn for women the way it was meant to be! :)

Recommends it for: everyone (mainly women)
Absolutely hilarious!

Truly a great book for any woman (and some men to learn from). This has become the book that is whispered about at my work now. People come up to my desk and whisper "do you have the book with you?".

But if you love a good laugh, need a pick-me-up or just want a quick and funny moment of amusement, nab this off the shelf.

Recommends it for: All women, Straight men
Concise examples of how to really please a woman. Although some men may not have "adequate equipment" for all examples; most men will find something to leave any woman sighing with pleasure. For women, the book gives us plenty to fantasize about; what woman would'nt appreciate a man who could... no, no I can't go there right now. You'll just have to read the book yourself.

This is NOT what you think! The premise is what turns women on. And what is that? A picture of a neatly dressed, clean-shaved husband holding a bouquet of flowers, saying, "Do I need a reason to buy you flowers?" It's a pretty funny picture book, that takes all of 5 minutes to read. I recommend it. There's also one called, "Porn for New Moms." Haha... Don't judge me. :)

Hilarious! I received this as a wedding gift from my brother-in-law's girlfriend. A group of girls sat around and laughed at this book for 15 minutes solid!

My personal favorite is the first "model" in the book...he's a handsome man looking very intently into your eyes and saying, "God that's SO interesting. Tell me more."

This is the most amazing, funny and touching collection - and let me tell you, when they called it Porn for Women, they weren't wrong!

Fantastic - highly recommended for any woman who knows what she wants!

Honestly, is there anything more sexy than a man who vaccums, cooks, and cleans? Who insists you have another serving of cake and would rather take you to antique mall than watch the superbowl? Then this book is exactly for you!

Rachel gave this to me. It is sooooo funny! It has pics of guys doing things like folding laundry, feather dusting, and saying things we all wish we would hear men say! Ex: "Well, I can't offer you any solutions, but I am a good listener." & Pic of putting toilet seat down & saying "Don't want anyone "falling in" in the middle of the night."

This was just stereotypical statements that mostly very vapid women would want men to say. Sure there are some valid ones, but mostly this was preposterous and a waste of my time (only took 5 minutes to read, and still too long).

I orginally bought this to harass my best friend and to make her laugh. Instead I laughed but I still felt honor bound to send to my best friend. What got me the most was the outlandish ideas of porn for women and how clean it is. Even my most uptight Christian friends would laugh at this!
Jan 28, 2017 rated it it was amazing
I loved it. It's funny but true. The men are very handsome and scantily clad. And doing all sorts of things that turn me on, such as paying attention and cleaning the house.
More of a PG than an R or an X. But sexy. A real turn on.

A friend sent me this for Christmas, and I remember seeing something similar go around the internet. This is one very clever, very amusing read, sure to make you laugh aloud- or at least giggle. I'm keeping it on my coffee table.

I refuse to spoil this book with a review. Every woman needs to experience it for herself...savor it like the best chocolate. You'll find yourself breathless at the end of it, believe me.
