About this deal

However, there were some interesting psychological insights mixed in among the BS, enough to have made it worth reading. What these two men “really” wanted, [psychiatrists] derisively explain, is not so much contact with the woman, as feeling of greater closeness between themselves: the prostitute was used merely as a conduit to communicate emotions to one another (. It's true by her own admission that when she solicited stories she ended up receiving virtually no responses from gay men willing to tell their fantasies and secrets.

And naturally I did the same and prodded my own boyfriend on a few subjects but the truth is fantasies are fantasies and they aren't real for a reason; mostly because they probably won't happen. As we grow older, become socialized, and develop identity, the satisfactions we pursue become more specific. I might have been able to finish it if it were around 200 pages, but at 472 pages, it just becomes tiresome and gross, regardless of the psychobabble explanations on the side. Depending on what type of person you are you may find this quite shocking, even Nancy Friday admitted to not knowing what to think of one of the fantasies in this book and goes to consult two other fellow psychologists on one occasion.

Now you'd think that being an erotic author, I'd know this and mainly I do, but this book still came as a revelation. Her explanations of the psychology of kinky practices were so bizarre at some points they were hard for me to wrap my head around.

Thinking about doing sex acts with people is just not a mental world I live in, and this book made me grateful for it - but it was interesting that many men's minds are so consumed by such simple, uninsightful, nonproductive behaviors. This is nothing less than an anthology of sexual baggage and my hat is off to the men who wrote in with such honesty and courage. Even when the men are fantasizing about their own wives: nothing, flatline, I was always left absolutely blank on anything beyond her appearance.

Her approach is heavily psychoanalytic, relying on the primal conflicts the young boy faces in early life with mother and father for its explanatory power.

He need no longer fear making his proposition, need not fear he may not perform well: The sexually enflamed woman in this myth is so close to orgasm right from the start that nothing is going to hold her back. This book could be used to stimulate conversation with others about a behavior or fantasy you might like to explore, as a way to normalize thoughts you may hold, or as an erotic read. Coming out of a lifetime of predominantly heterosexual feelings and actions, many men are bewildered, puzzled and dismayed to find themselves heated by notions of including another male in their eroticism. This flies in the face of the growing evidence that sexual identity is something determined long before a child is even born. Men in Love goes beyond the cliché of woman seen as either madonna or whore to reveal the conflict of love and rage at the centre of men's emotions.Her view is that homosexuality is the result of a boy denying to himself that he wants to have sex with his mother, either out of shame or because his mother is "pure," and also fearing being harmed (especially castrated) by his father, an impossible rival, for wanting to have sex with his mother. There's the sexy, the sweet, the heartwarming, the imaginative, the crazy, the kinky, the deranged and the downright illegal in about 500 pages. I go back to this book time and time again, not to turn me on, but to give me a deeper understanding of male sexuality.
