Book Description

25 May 2000
For men, the intimate workings of the female body have long remained one of the great mysteries of the universe. What gives her the most pleasure? Where should you be touching her - and how? Fortunately, there are some people who can offer men the empirical knowledge gained from a lifetime of pleasing women - and getting pleased by them. This frank, frolicsome, and wonderfully illuminating book draws on the sexual advice and sex secrets of lesbians to help men become better lovers. A groundbreaking dialogue between straight men and gay women, and an erotic look inside the often hidden world of lesbian sex, Lesbian Sex Secrets for Men reveals a whole new approach to pleasure for men and the women they love. At the same time, this book proves that while sex is something we all do naturally, a little focused effort - and a few simple lessons - can open up a whole new world of enjoyment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, informative 5 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Having been pointed to this book by a friend, I was at first a little sceptical. However, once I read through a fair part of this book I was pleasently surprised - the straightforward text conveys some information that's new to me, and some that just plain makes sense. Since reading this book I've found I understand my partner's responses in a new way and it's helped our sex life no end...

4.0 out of 5 stars Not brilliant but decent 23 Feb 2007
By J
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book mostly to get free delivery on a particular Amazon order.

It should be said this book is far from life changing. As far as sex tips in themselves go, it has hardly any. However, it mostly focuses on communication and so forth. Although it says nothing revolutionary here either, I liked reading it and it felt reassuring to read it, and it helped me be more aware of how communication is important. I think for people in a relationship where there is a lack of communication it could even make a difference.

I think this book is really only applicable for people in relationships.

A negative side of the book is it seems to be written with the view that lesbians are better than men in all ways. Instead of it being lesbians telling us some things that you may not know, it is telling us everything as if they are much better. At times this was irritating.

There is a chapter on "expanding horizons", and it is possibly worth while saying what this includes, which is: sex toys (mainly dildos), anal, fisting and S&M.

As it is not very expensive, I think on balance it is worth buying.

Jamie Goddart is a lesbian and therefore communicates well about what feels good.
This american book has been compiled from questionaires completed by straight & lesbian couples. It starts by telling us men that the d*ck is not the only pleasure giving device. All the way through it suggests talking together about issues, pleasures, fantasies, etc
It took the scaryness out of sex for me..
You could used the book as an openner for something you'd like to do, but was afraid to ask for...
I only started having sex 2 years ago. Glad I read this first.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good In Parts 7 May 2004
Format:Paperback
I bought this book because I had seen a similar book by Gay Men for women.
This book is good, but it suffers from being a bit too earnest. Also it is in no way as funny or interesting as the Gay Men's version.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book will enrich your life! 22 Nov 2002
By danw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Based on the rather Howard Stern-esque sounding title of this book I wasn't expecting too much. In fact I got it via inter-library loan as much as anything to check out the element of chastisement referred to by one reviewer below - do all woman-centered books need to do this I wondered? Anyway, before I had gotten even half way through it, I went ahead and ordered a copy from Amazon.com for my collection - it's that good. There are those who will say there are no secrets, it's all been said before, save your money, blah, blah blah. But what this book does, and very well I might add, is to promote a very respectful, partner-honoring mentality, mixed in with alot of honest upfront information on what works and what doesn't for many women. Yet it's not all strictly sexual (ie - genitally focused) so if you are looking for the magic button to get her motor running without fail you may be dissappointed. And I think it may be hard to take some of the information positively if you are not at least part way to realizing it on your own - stuff about how a prized part of your anatomy is a distant 4th on the list of your pleasure-giving assets. And I think this may well explain the rather mixed reviews the book is getting. But to be fair I don't think the chastisement, if that is what you want to call it, is particularly shrill. In every case the authors allow that "not all men believe 'X' or are like 'Y' and for some of you this may just be a review ...", so unless you really can't stomach the message, the delivery seems pretty tame and male friendly throughout (say in comparison to something like Rebecca Chalker's "Clitoral Truth").
Bottomline is this book is really quite good, much better than some of the negative reviews here indicate, and better than the cheesy title might suggest. While it is rather chatty and breezey in style it is literally dense with the sort of authentic information about women's sexuality that few men ever clearly receive. In the end what these authors promote amounts to nothing less than a radical rewrite of the model of heterosexual sexuality, one in which pleasure for the female partner isn't just faked or vicarious, and one unfortunately that has been a long time in coming (or coming back if you believe the goddess worshippers). Many other books have attempted to boil it all down to a few handy tricks, yet maybe that boiling down is exactly the problem. If there is a key message here it is this, "Hey guys, never forget that there is a woman attached to those genitals!" And if you can manage that (and still feel like having sex with her), then you are well on your way to a good thing. This book, as Jack Nicholson's character in "As Good As It Gets" says, makes me want to be a better man. And maybe that is the single best thing you can bring to a relationship - the genuine desire to connect and make your partner happy, whether it be with a relaxing massage or a wild night of swinging-from-the-chandelier passion. I heartily recommend this book to any man open to rethinking the cultural scripts around heterosexual love-play. Doing what it takes to truly let her feel like a woman, shouldn't make you any less of a man, even though alot of our cultural baggage seems to say just that.

5.0 out of 5 stars How to Save your Relationship 9 May 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Lesbian Sex Secrets For Men, by J. Goddard and K. Brungardt, is an amzing work that has already aided my relationship! I had heard that the book was coming out in May and I thought it might be good for me as well as my male partner. So, last week I bought the book and found it to be the best thing since sex therapy! I only introduced it to my partner three days ago, but so far, so good. I think this book is particularly strong due to its detailed instructions. It provides exact information in a no nonsense manner while also being sensitive to people's ideas about sex. My partner thought he would be okay with reading it because a male wrote it as well as a woman. The book gives a new view of how people in relationships need to talk. I am writing this even though I still have to read the last two chapters, but I feel very confident in telling all of my friends about it. More than anything, I want to tell people that although the content may seem racy, it is about time we got a book that is direct and honest. The stories of the women and men in the surveys are the book's best asset. Hearing people with familiar problems is a great comfort. So, in conclusion I would say this is the sex book of the 21rst century. Move over "The Joy of Sex"!

5.0 out of 5 stars For every man who loves his partner 7 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This is the book you have been waiting for. If you want to improve your communication, lovemaking techniques, or even move into some "kinkier" sex play, buy this book. If for no other reason than to talk about and share this information with your partner. It's fun, educational, and often a very arousing book to read. Especially if you have someone special in mind.

By reneeferg52@hotmail.com - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My wife and I have been married a long time, but the female body had always been somewhat of a mystery. She's quite open in bed, but I still wonder-What gives her the most pleasure? Where should I be touching or rubbing her. This book answers all those questions. This book provides wonderful sexual advise to help any man become a better lover. My wife is so pleased, she can't thank me enough...

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept - very well done! 9 Oct 2000
By Edward Saunders Jr. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I thought that this book looked at sex from a point of view that most men never consider-a lesbian... I read this book and layers of misunderstanding peeled away! I feel now that my lady will definitely note that something is definitely different in my lovemaking andf in how I deal with her! Isn't that what a man wants as a result of reading this book? Please set aside any misgivings and give this book a read, GUYS! I put this one up there with ESO as an essential read!
