Format: Paperback
For all the failings it has (such as the lack of diverse sources, and Nancy's sometimes over analylitcal approach), this book does one thing..... it makes you realise that everyone has a diverse sexual imagination, whether they choose to act upon it or not. People who clearly would never 'behave in such a manner' in their real lives, are obviously just as interested as those who sleep with everyone they come across.
In essence then this book encourages women of all ages, backgrounds and sexual preferences to realise they are 'normal', in as much as that 'normal' doesn't exsist. All the women in this book are linked by their fantasies but restrained by their moral backgrounds, religious beliefs and so on. I found it refreshing to read and it gives me hope that true emancipation may one day come into fruition.

Nancy Friday has written about women's sexulity for a long time. In "Women on Top", she writes about women's fantasies and there are a lot of fantasies herein. Be warned that some of the fantasies are extremely over the top and a bit icky. However, most of the them are interesting and it's always good to draw parallels between peronal ones and those of others. I would recommend this along with "Playtime" and "Against Love", two other books that deal very well with female sexuality.

Format: Paperback
I loved this book. It made me realise that I was not alone, and that so many other women (of all ages) shared the same strong thoughts and feelings as I did. It really opened my eyes to my own fantasies that I never knew I had, or had just never thought about. It also made it easier for me to talk with my partner about what I wanted, because I realised that my fantasises were 'OK', and nothing to be ashamed of. A definite must, I would recommend it to any woman.

Format: Paperback
This book really pushes down all boundaries by exploring the female mind. Hopefully people will begin to realise that women do not get turned by all that Mills and Boon shmaltz. These are REAL womens fantasies, which provide extremely stimulating reading material. BUY IT!!!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Mr. M. Hodgson on 11 Jan. 2012
Format: Paperback
It is interesting that an earlier review criticises the book because it focuses too much on women in their teens and early 20's, yet that is what the book is all about, monitoring the changes in women's sexuality since Nancy Friday wrote her first book, My Secret Garden in 1973. Ms Friday interviews and explores the ideas, conceptions and preconceptions of young women to assess if there has been a significant change in women's sexuality since the 1970's. It would not make sense to interview older women who grow up in the 1970's. It would be a `70's view they would express. Ms Friday wanted to capture the attitudes of women who grow up 20 years later, and those who are still growing up. If you want to read about the experience of a wider range of women then read her earlier works, as well.

Format: Paperback
I see now that lots of women have certain 'dreams' that are( by most) thought to be wierd.But it's time that we stop thinking about what others think and live our lives as we want because there's enough time for everything that we want to do only if we start it immediately.The book is inspiring for all those who feel they've tried everything.Let's enjoy,life's short if we are inventive!

Gives you quite an insight as to how many women think today, being stronger, knowing what they want, and aren't afraid how to get it. Would recommend to anyone, especially if they are interested in human psychology.
