    A reviewer

    My husband and I have been married for 26 years and have raised to beautiful and successful daughters. After our baby finished college and left home we finally felt the 'emply nest syndrome' and felt our sex life needed a little spicing up. Well ladies, let me tell you this book did it! It is not only a book about male sexuality but Ian Kerner also explains the male anatomy. I can't even explain in words what it has done to our sex life. I wish it would have been written 26 years ago. This book should be on every woman's book list! I told my sister I would give it to her to read but I couldn't part with my copy so I went out and bought one for her.

    I enjoyed this book, but did not find it as helpful as She Comes

    I enjoyed this book, but did not find it as helpful as She Comes First. In She Comes First, there were step-by-step techniques accompanied by drawings to show exactly what he was describing, and while the male anatomy may seem easy to understand since it is primarily exterior, the drawings would have been helpful.I am still not confident in my ability to please my man the way I feel he deserves to be pleasured. This book was focused on empowering the woman, but not in the way I was hoping. I gave it four stars because it did open up a dialogue between my husband and I on communicating about our sexual desires, but otherwise I feel the book on its own deserves just three stars.

    WOW, WOW, WOW!!!

    I bought this book to check myself to see how much I knew. My husband and I have a good sex life and are very close.

    Wow!!!

    It really made a difference and helped me understand the why's of things being enjoyable. Some of these things my husband just couldn't explain in words. This book pulls it all together. I let a friend take a look at the book and I still haven't gotten back. I recommend this book to men and women who want to increase the intimacy in their relationship as well as having some fantastic sexual pleasure.
