Format: Paperback
It is this kind of book, rather than the contradictory worlds of men's and women's magazines, that we should be reading to promote openness between the sexes. I have always been a little sensitive about what I previously considered to be men's attitudes towards women. Like many women, I had the unspoken fear that men didn't fall in love as deeply as we did and that they were much more likely to be unfaithful. However, reading this book gave me a lot of insights into how men think, and the differences- and similarities- between 'us' and 'them'. This is a book of fantasies- if you're looking for sex you won't be disappointed- but it is also a book that made me feel both less insecure and more understanding. Some of these fantasies are a little shocking, but none of them are cruel, and if you have a particular aversion to a certain area of sexuality you can always skip the relevant chapter (although all subjects are treated with sensitivity). As the author suggests, men really do love women, and for this affirmation alone all women who want to understand men better should read this book.

I'll start this review by stating that I'm a man.

I bought this book because I wanted to understand more about how I feel about sex and sexuality. The basic premiss of the book is great: real people's accounts of their experiences and fantasies, interspliced with thoughtful reflections from the author.

And indeed, most of the book is very interesting indeed. It's lovely to read about other people's feelings and experiences, to realise that I'm not alone and not a freak. There is something wonderful about the extent of human diversity that is reflected in these pages.

However, the book appears to be written mainly for women. At the time I'm writing this, most of the amazon reviews seem to be by women, reading this perhaps to learn more about what makes men tick, sexually. This is all well and good. But much of the author's material is so female-centred that I found it frankly upsetting, most of the time. The author basically says the following in the introductory chapter: "I had lots of preconceptions about men's sexuality, and after researching for this book I found out that most of these were not true." [I'm paraphrasing - this isn't a quote.] It seems that she only made this realisation AFTER she had written most of the book, because so much of it still seems to reflect her own biased perspective.

For example, in the chapter on masturbation we find her writing on p39 that a man (in general) "doesn't take masturbation as a sign of his failure as a man". This completely contradicts all of the many accounts in that very chapter which speak about shame and the difficult of overcoming it. Nancy Friday may be right about a lot of men, but this kind of stereotyping approach just is not helpful here, in a book of this kind.

Format: Paperback
I bought this book out of pure curiosity. What is it that men really think, really dream of? Nancy Friday has broken new ground with her books exploring sexual fantasies of both women and men; their meaning, their origin... The fantasies themselves are complemented by short yet thoughtful analysis - no judgement here, just a curious mind. In the introduction to this book Nancy Friday states that she found some of the fantasies submitted difficult - I dismissed her comments out of hand (twenty years on etc!) but in reading found some material challenging too which goes to show - it is easier to accept 'wild' thoughts from one's own gender... I would highly recommend this book - I found it fascinating and informative; and very good to read when alone in bed (it has to be said).

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.
Overall I'll say it's a good read and an insight into how the opposite sex can sometimes think. I can't say for sure how I would feel if men were THIS honest in real life on a regular basis. There is a review on this book by a woman called Baloo who stated that this book, in a way, ended her relationship "Until I read this book. I suddenly doubted his reassuring words of "I think only of you". With good reason, after I told him about all I'd learnt from this book, he confessed he'd been lying."
It was a scary thought and the book was made use of in one way or the other I suppose! 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. Love and sex are two different things, as long as you keep that in mind as well as an open mind this book is pretty damned good! And it seems men and women probably aren't that different when it comes to sex. I'd be lying if I had said I'd never thought of something wild and inappropriate while in a relationship. A majority of the men in this book don't even act out their fantasies or the fantasies are linked to experiences that they wished went "another way" so to speak.
The point is we all fantasize about things that are unlikely to happen or will never really pursue in reality but hardly ever talk about and that's why I love this book, if not all of Nancy Friday's books, because you get to hear all those nitty gritty details.
