    Now I Have to Read It!

    After the angry and bitter old woman who apparently does not want, understand or appreciate great sex, I now want to read the book. I am a '39 something' year old man and plan on keeping my very healthy libido intact for decades. This could be a very helpful read.

    If you want a break lady, head to Mickey D's....

    There are many positive things about having good sex with your partner, a longitudinal study in Europe showed that men who did have sex more frequently with their partner increased their longevity so as to provide more support for their partner... the 'break lady' sounds jaded and spurned, perhaps she should read a book on how to attract a man and 'keep' him instead of grousing...

    A Must For Everyone

    This book is a must read for everyone who ever visited a Health Food Store. Dr. Schneider corrected a lot of misinformation that I had received from Health Food store clerks. I highly recommend it for anyone who is interested in maintaining optimal health.

    Give us a break

    In a world where a woman is raped every three minutes, the LAST thing I give a crap about is trying to 'boost' men's libido's. Women are objectified every where you turn your head. Nature has told older men to shut down the uncontrolable erections (every 40 minutes for young men!!!). So listen to Mother Nature. Give your poor old wife a break and stay the heck away from girls young enough to be your daughters and grand daughters. Pick up a book and read something- better yet, try TALKING to women your own age. GROW UP. Age with grace instead of articially trying to prolong your teen years. Let's face it, you probably weren't that good back then either,long before they found starch for your willy, why would you think your wrinkly rear end would be such a treat for a partner now?

    getting older, and want to enjoy life gracefully!

    I sympathize with the abuse and disrespect that women get. I have a daughter in her teens and I worry very much for her safety as well as the decisions she makes in life. I get sick whan I hear of rapes and of child molestations. But my wanting to be better at sex has nothing to do with any of these. I have been divorced for over 12 years and when I do meet a women I would like very much to please her in many ways as well as sexually . So learning about how to keep my libido is important to my mind,my body and my spirit as it is important for me to please my partner. I will say its not just men that think of sex, women are much more aggressive today.Its not a competition but the pressure is on to be , hotter, sexier and better. I like to get what ever knowledge I can to help.

    Helped to clarify what I wasn't sure of re natural supplements

    I gained a lot of knowledge I didn't know previous to reading this book. I find it very helpul and keep it near by to refer to as a reference book. I discovered an online audio interview with Dr. Schneider located at Talk to Tara dot com - I recommend one listens. It is beneficial to hear straight from the authors mouth.
