4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable? Yes. Arousing? Not quite. 22 Nov 2002
Format:Paperback
Let me first say that anyone interested in sexual psychology should read this work. An unprecedented collection of the sexual thoughts, desires, fears and, of course, fantasies from women in 70's USA and UK.
However, it is more a book concerned with erotic fantasy rather than an erotic read, despite being promoted as such on many adult sites. Many of the accounts are from women who had anxieties & inhibitions about their sexuality, or failings in their relationships, which comes across in their accounts as pathetic & sometimes pitiful revelations. Most are written in a bland & unarousing style when compared to much of today's literature. This was an era where women's sexual confidence was still embryonic, the fact that some can still relate to these women may show that their evolution is still not complete.
It's only failings are the author's self confessed, autobiographical leaning which gives some bias to the objectiveness of the research & a journalist's amateur, over simplified generalisation to some of the analysis. Other than this, Nancy Friday has to be applauded for this book.
This is a must for anyone wanting more insight into the female sexual psyche, but if you're looking for titillation I would try something else more fitting from the now bulging erotica bookshelves.

4.0 out of 5 stars interesting takes on how women think 14 Jun 2014
By Jodaisy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
reading this, I find the narrative by Nancy really interesting as are many of the thoughts that women have during moments of passion and other times of day. I recognise myself in some of them! It is obvious that this was written a while ago and it would be interesting to know if and how much fantasy has changed since this was written. I would imagine the use of technology means these thoughts are more often shared, so as with many things in life have become more and more extreme to get the thrill from them. I am sure somebody out there is looking in to this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating 6 Jan 2014
By Ms J
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I am interested in psychology and I really found it interesting. I love reading books which are about anything not commonly written about. This book isn't afraid to really be honest and is very shocking in places (many places actually). Whatever the reason you may be interested in purchasing this book, it makes for an intriguing read!
