5.0 out of 5 stars More than just a "how-to".
I expected a "how-to" style book, explaining techniques and tricks for getting yourself off. You can get that out of it, but there's more to this book. With new understandings about sexuality and about yourself, you may have more fun with a partner and alone. As the author writes a lot about her personal experience, it is geared more towards women, but I'd...

3.0 out of 5 stars Sex With Everyone.
This book really should have been titled "Sex with Everyone". I was looking for a good book about self-love. What this is, is a book where the author recalls her wild sexual life, which included sex parties, homosexual sex, group masturbation, mutual masturbation, basically just having sex with everyone. I think sex is sacred and is best kept for yourself and your chosen...

4.0 out of 5 stars liberating, 22 May 2001
By A Customer
This review is from: Sex for One: The Joy of Selfloving (Paperback)
Although I didn't wholly go along with all the ideas and techniques outlined in the book (for example discussing the sexual virtues of courgettes with complete strangers in supermarkets!), I found the book to be very positive. Having read the book I feel liberated and that my partner and I have definitely gained from the experience!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Betty Dodson's book changed my life., 29 Oct 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Sex for One: The Joy of Selfloving (Paperback)
I know this sounds very corny, but Betty's book was truly a life-changing experience for me. A woman at the age of 48, I had never experienced orgasm and was on a downward track sexually in my marriage. I devoured Betty's book, appreciating her complete candor and honesty about sex. I finally realized that sexual satisfaction and ecstacy are everyone's birthright, including me. A year after reading Self-Loving, I have lost 20 pounds, am feeling like a teenager with my husband, and can finally say "I love myself!" Thank you, Betty.

5.0 out of 5 stars Truly mind-expanding, 14 July 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Sex for One: The Joy of Selfloving (Paperback)
Dodson's book stands out in a field clogged with sex manuals which overstress partnered sex. It is difficult to be a good lover to a partner without an intimate understanding of one's own desires, likes, dislikes, gray areas, fantasies, and physiologies. As a sex educator, I highly recommend this text.

5.0 out of 5 stars Every woman should have this one, 22 Jun 1997
By A Customer
This review is from: Sex for One: The Joy of Selfloving (Paperback)
I used to be ashamed of masturbating. I thought of it as a sin...and something that that I would be punished for.After reading this book, I know now that I had nothing to be afraid of. I am in a loving relationship, but selfloving has given me a whole new out look in life. I love my boyfriend deeply and I think our relationship is much strong because I am more confident about my techniques andI feel less conscious about my body. Even if a woman doesn't masturbate, she should read this book. Maybe it will give women more self confidence about themselves.

4.0 out of 5 stars Quite good, 16 Nov 2007

This review is from: Sex for One: The Joy of Selfloving (Paperback)
Self loving may no longer be viewed as the shameful act it used to be but as a 30th Anniversary present from my wife Doreen, this book came as a rather unforeseen gift. It's a fairly interesting read but I probably wouldn't have felt any need to fork out on technical advice myself, considering how tight-fisted I am.

3.0 out of 5 stars Sex With Everyone., 1 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This book really should have been titled "Sex with Everyone". I was looking for a good book about self-love. What this is, is a book where the author recalls her wild sexual life, which included sex parties, homosexual sex, group masturbation, mutual masturbation, basically just having sex with everyone. I think sex is sacred and is best kept for yourself and your chosen one. This book is about so much more than masturbation it really should be titled sex with everyone and masturbating too. It really is an alright book, the sex stories are so out there in the out field that it really was an eye opener. The author led quite a wild life of masturbating, pornogaphry, sexual affairs, sex parties, orgies, living in communes, circle jerks, alcoholism, drug addictions, etc. The author also does not believe in marriage just having group scenes filled with people playing with not only themselves but eachother.

5.0 out of 5 stars the reality of the power of self touch to explore ones mind, 27 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Sex for One: The Joy of Selfloving (Paperback)
The awareness of how self touch not only "tunes" the physical aspects of the body but it also releases the mind to expand and transcend barriers of reality. All is possible.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't help......, 15 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Sex for One: The Joy of Selfloving (Paperback)
I bought this for my wife. Hoping it would show her that it's OK to touch herself. She has always seen self satisfaction as wrong. This book really missed the mark. The section on group masterbation and homosexuality really turned her off. This book portays the writer as a sex know-it-all out of the free-love sixtys. It does not begin to help those who don't know what they are missing and need a little push. The book hit the shelf after 1 day.
