Overview

The bestselling author of The Good Girl's Guide to Bad Girl Sex presents the ultimate troubleshooting guide

Today's woman will have on average far more partners and sexual experiences than her mother's generation. However, she is just as likely to become confused, insecure, and surprised by what takes place in her bedroom. She'll quickly discover that the sex she's having doesn't resemble what happens on the movie screen or in books. He may have trouble “getting it up.” She may even start a sexual relationship with a man who has difficulty “getting it down.” She will almost inevitably find herself in a passionate embrace with a man who is “too quick.”

Noted sex educator Barbara Keesling presents a much needed toolkit for women determined to forge a more satisfying sex life. She explains the physical and psychological causes of common (and not so common) male sexual issues and what a woman can do to help. Packed with anecdotes, sex positions, hands-on techniques, and advice on how to have an effective conversation with your partner, Men in Bed will be an essential troubleshooting guide for all women.

Editorial Reviews

In Men in Bed, Dr. Keesling explains what women should know about male sexual issues before they drift between the sheets. The issues include problems both common and uncommon. A troubleshooting guide for inquisitive women.

Men in Bed is a good lay introduction to what can be affecting a man's sexuality. A self-professed sex enthusiast, Barbara Keesling turned hobby into career after reading an epiphany-inducing article about a local sex clinic employing sexual surrogate partners. She goes on to earn a PhD in health psychology and write books like The Good Girl's Guide to Bad Girl Sex and All Night Long. Here she draws equally from her academic background and extensive personal experience in describing the types of sexual difficulties heterosexual women might encounter in their invited bed partners such as premature ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, low desire, compulsive sexual behavior, and effects of age, medication, drugs and alcohol on sex. Her target audience is not the young sexually uninitiated woman, but rather someone who might perplexed by a never-previously-encountered issue. She achieves a cheerful older-experienced-sister tone, relaying accurate psychological/medical information and parlaying personal anecdotes. There's not too much very explicit, step-by-step instruction, more a general outline of how to approach the given issue. Although the book might benefit from some diagrams -- especially when she goes over anatomy -- it still stands as a non-judgmental, more reality-based than Cosmo primer on sexual issues women might encounter with their men in bed.
