Overview

A man’s anatomy is a lot easier to understand than his mind, and knowing what’s going on down there is just as important to a happy relationship as figuring out the deeper meaning of his every word. You can analyze your relationship with your girlfriends, but who can you turn to with the more . . . sensitive questions? In Size Matters, Dr. Harry Fisch, an expert on the male reproductive system, and writer Kara Baskin team up to introduce you, metaphorically speaking, to the penis.

Clearing up mysteries about male anatomy, orgasm, masturbation, STDs, testosterone, impotence, sexual response, and much more, Size Matters is the first women’s user manual for male sexuality—a guidebook that will answer all your questions and lead you to a better sex life. For example:

Can masturbation have any effect on sex? Can he do it too much . . . or too little?
He always orgasms before me . . . is there any way to slow him down?
Do grown men still have wet dreams?
Can his weight affect our sex life?

Size Matters is a fun, prescriptive, easy-to-understand troubleshooting guide for women who have questions about male sexuality or who want to have better sex. You might not always understand what’s going on in his mind, but now you can know what’s going on in his pants.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Actually, it's the size of his testicles and belly that matters, not the size of his man-gland. This girl's guide to male machinery includes basic information about the penis and testicles, male sex drive, semen, the male take on masturbation and intercourse, fertility, dysfunctions, and sexually transmitted diseases. Fisch (clinical urology, Columbia Univ.) and journalist Baskin also answer questions about "blue balls," the taste of semen, post-ejaculation snoozing, and honeymoon cystitis-topics not usually covered in sex guides. The questions come from women all over the country; the answers are documented via references to the medical literature, and a glossary is included. But the book lacks other necessary supporting material. There is, for instance, no list of resources, either print or web-based. A "Finding Help" section includes only New York City physicians, New York City hospitals, and some national associations. And, further, illustrations are sparse, consisting mainly of the pelvic cross-section, a sperm cameo, and a schematic for the angle of the dangle by age. A good resources section and lighthearted, informative drawings throughout would have really perked up this helpful and entertaining but limited work.

    THIS BOOK IS THE WHOLE PACKAGE!

    Okay Ladies! Heads up! If you think you know everything there is to know about your man, think again. This book really delivers on his goods. While written in a light hearted and funny way, the facts provided about your man¿s family treasure are extremely informative. Read this book and you¿ll find yourself constantly saying -- ¿WOW¿REALLY????¿. The book is also filled with some really fun tid bits that had me rolling on the floor. There is also so much wonderful information about how to help your honey get or stay healthy. Dr. Harry Fisch and Kara Baskin make a somewhat taboo subject easy to understand and comfortable to discuss. ¿Size Matters¿ is the WHOLE PACKAGE!
