This book would have been useful if used in the correct way... since it was meant for children; however, it was my husband's attempt at foreplay. I thought it would be a good idea because Peter is a spontaneous man and really gives me pleasure. Unfortunately "A Pioneer Story: The Daily Life of a Canadian Family in 1840" did not cause me to get aroused. For some reason, the little stories on honey making and sheep shearing really started 'grinding his gears' if you know what I mean. Me on the other hand, I did not see the sexualness of it.
