Overview

An extraordinary, explicitly masculine journey, Men In Love develops a startlingly honest portrayal of what it means to be a man in contemporary America. Here are the unexpurgated dreams, fantasies and fetishes that excite and obsess men today. In creating this historic study, Nancy Friday listened--without disapproval, apology or censorship--to the candid responses of thousands of men aged fourteen through sixty. She gave them a legitimate arena where they could share their "secret gardens"--the hidden and forbidden but nonetheless real and true. Much more than a litany of erotica, this unique volume doesn't tell us how men should love. It tells us how men do love--a stunning insight into the desires that dwell within men's psyches... and their hearts.

    Profound

    I learned more about men from reading this book than a life-time of interaction could teach me. The men who contributed to this book shared things that I don't think they would have or could have had the format been different. Nancy Friday¿s technique for making the men who contributed feel at ease was what made this book different from anything else I have ever read. I could feel how deep they were digging inside themselves and I can honestly say that reading this book changed me as a woman and changed the way that I look at men...all men. MEN IN LOVE should be on anyone's list that loves a man and wants to understand him.

    Life Changing

    I remember when i first read this book, i was a rather young teenager who found it in her mothers bedside table. I would wait for her to go out and then read. I have always lived in a home where things like this book were shunned and sex was reguarded as bad. So in my mind i told myself that the fantasies that were inside of me were not only wrong, but evil in a sense. After reading this book and Secret Garden, and searching for some time for them when i became old enough to buy them, i began to look at myself in a different light. Seeing that i was not alone and that this was something everyone thought of, I was not afraid anymore, I felt that i could express myself better without being afraid. I also gained priceless insight into the minds of men and how they love. These books are a priceless wealth of information and insight in my opinion, they do change the way you look at yourself and others. It makes it easier in my eyes to open up to someone and tell them fantasies and be intimate with someone.

    Great to share with your lover

    I loved this book and read it over and over again. The guy I was going with at the time was kind of shy about sharing his fantasies. Yes, quite a switch, I know. I used to love to lay in bed on a Saturday or Sunday morning reading to him from the book. It would spur all kinds of interesting conversation and activities. I also loved to read the book when I was alone, late at night. Oh yea. Used lots of batteries! Unfortunately, when my boyfriend and I broke up he somehow got custody of the book. I've been looking for another copy everywhere, but have had a difficult time finding one. This book is a great read, whether you read it alone or with a friend.

    Men Do Have 'Forbidden Flowers'

    What a book.....shows that men do have their own 'forbidden flowers' in their 'secret gardens'....quite graphic and arousing fantasies....definitely a 'bedtime' book

    Erotic

    I'd been searching for this book for about 6 years! I didn't know the title of it. My mom's friend let her borrow a copy and I used to sneak and read it! When I got old enough to purchase it on my own I couldn't remember anything but 'Secret Garden'. Well I have both books and they were well worth the wait. These fantasies and real life occurances can stimulate anyone into doing anything! I recommend this book to everyone who has ever had any fantasies(that means you!)
