This book is very good at giving tips on how to improve your sex life and many are probably very good, but I don't think reading the book has helped as I could not see myself doing half of the things in it (because I am very shy). But nevertheless it was fun to read, even if her excessive use of the word 'lovemaking' irritated me.

This is an excellent book, full of useful information, and written in a frank and ligthearted style that makes it highly readable. I shared it with my friends and they each bought a copy for themselves. My husband also read some chapters and professes himself to be a very happy man. Thank you Dr. Hilda!

A Treasure Map for Sexual Intimacy and Fulfillment 17 Mar 2006
By A. Taylor - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
In "Pleasure", Dr. Hilda Hutcherson approaches the topic of female sexuality from a lighter, more personal and fun-friendly perspective than she did in "What Your Mother Never Told You about S-E-X". In "S-E-X", the reader is like a new patient engaging in a reassuring and open conversation with her well-chosen and nurturing gynecologist. By the time we get to "Pleasure" the doctor-patient relationship has grown significantly more personal and trusting, and the topics addressed take on a whole new level of intimacy.

"Dr. Hil" is to women and sex what "Dr. Phil" is to relationships. "Pleasure" is filled with emotionally supportive and detailed advice. The numerous illustrations are sensually tasteful and instructive. This is the perfect book for anyone who seeks to improve her sexual happiness, but is put off by the often cheesy plethora of `hot sex' guides on the market today.

"Pleasure" frees the reader to feel good about herself, discover her own unique style of `sexy' and explore both physically and psychologically what uniquely rocks her boat. (Sections of chapter 5 can stand alone as a manual for any man interested in obtaining the ultimate step by step exploratory guide on giving pleasure). We also learn that orgasm is just one of many sources of pleasure, and not the be-all end-all win or lose aspect of a woman's sexual enjoyment.

The book covers a range of topics, including self-care (emotionally, spiritually, psychologically and physically), personal pleasure centers (through step-by-step physical exploration, either alone or with your partner), sex-act education (both basic and advanced), sexual enhancements (toys, exercisers, sensual products, fantasies and games) and last, but not least, how to maintain a satisfying sex life through oft-times frustrating life changes.

We learn that there is much more to "sexy" than what we have been commonly misled to believe; Dr. Hutcherson shares with each reader the key to unlock that special pleasure-seeking energy within herself and exude her uniquely alluring `check-me-out' energy to the world. "Pleasure" is for anyone who is less than thrilled with her sexual status quo and seeks expert advice on how to obtain the sexual fulfillment she deserves.

Rejuvenate your sex-life! 28 Dec 2010
By Cindy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you've been in a loving, stable relationship for a long time, but the sex has gotten a little routine, rushed, or "boring," this is the book for you. Quite frankly, when you begin dating that special someone, the passion is on fire. You can wait to get together with him and connect in as many ways as possible. Yet, then marriage comes along, a career, a family, and then, the daily stress of becoming a multi-tasking woman who literally drops into bed at night from complete exhaustion. The thought of intimacy is another item on the to-do list. Well, the book Pleasure: A Woman's Guide to Getting the Sex You Want, Need, and Deserve, is a wake-up call to those hard-working women about how life and complete pleasure is passing them by when it doesn't need to at all. The author's philosophy is clear. It's about YOUR pleasure and satisfaction as a woman, as well as your partner's. She gives the reader straight talk about what goes on in a hot sex-life. It's not about performance. It's not about evaluation. It's not even about the Big O as everyone thinks it is. It's really about rediscovery of what makes you both feel terrific. The chapters on male and female sexual anatomy with the corresponding tips on how to fire-up and pleasure your partner get the ideas flowing. The author has done hours of work with couples and it shows in her writing style. She talks to the reader about common fears, thought patterns, and blocks to one's pleasure. Then, she shares tips and techniques that her patients have tried that work for not only rejuvenating a great sex-life, but making an intimate relationship much stronger and more enjoyable than ever. The books is a well-organized, simple read. Get going on living a pleasurable life! You won't regret it.

Everything (almost) that STILL needs to be said. 23 Sep 2009
By Michael F. Herrmann - Published on
Format: Paperback
Well-written and comprehensive guide to the female and male sexual anatomy, their pleasure centers and outliers.
Nice drawings of positions and good descriptions of wide range of techniques...with insider tips. Includes suggestions and recommendations for toys (by prescription, no less!) and lubricants. I'm curious about her views on polyamory, swinging or friends-with-benefits.

best book I've ever read! 11 Aug 2013
By D. L. Hay - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is very real and tells it like it is. Techniques are described in detail and pictures enhance the understanding. I especially like Dr. Hilda's continuous reminder to take responsibility for your own pleasure. Be the sexual goddess you know you are!
