3.0 out of 5 stars Sound but cumbersome and old-fashioned advice 12 April 2002
By A Customer
I bought this book along with 'How to orgasm in 5 minutes every time you make love' in order to try to learn about what my problems were. This book is extremely "wordy" and is not an easy read. It begins with a questionnaire which lets you explore where your problems may lie - if not physical ones. It then continues with a step by step plan which aims to make you comfortable with your own body. This may be useful for many women, however, if you are already comfortable with yourself you may skip some of the pages. The book also gives ideas on how to get in the mood for sex, but it assumes that the reader is unknowledgable or inexperienced. Although I found it helpful to go back to basics with this book, I found that it would have been a more helpful school textbook more than anything else. If your problem stems from a mental origin, or you aren't confident about sex or yourself then this is a useful book. However, the other 5 minutes book is an easier very quick read which made me feel a lot better about myself and my problem and also gave practical simple advice. Neither book worked miracles in allowing me to experience an orgasm, but mentally I feel a lot happier after having read both.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very empowering and practical 12 Nov 2010
I would highly recommend this book to any woman who had never had or has difficulties acheiving orgasm. It recognises the anxieties and doubts caused by such difficulties, the sense of being 'abnormal' in some way and gently and thoughtfully guides the reader through a series of physical and psychological exercises, along the way giving useful factual information. I didn't find it wordy or cumbersome but thorough and encouraging. It emphasises individuality and that readers may take as long as they need at each stage without feeling pressurised to achieve and set themselves up to fail in the process. I liked the way that the psychological and physical aspects of the sexual experience are linked and also the very practical approach taken. Overall - transformational.

4.0 out of 5 stars General 29 Sep 2013
As a therapist I found this book excellent and it was in perfect condition. The price was significantly lower than purchasing it new.

I am delighted with the overall service and standard from Amazon.
