I won't be so dramatic as to say that this book changed my life, but it certainly changed my lifestyle. I read it as a teenage girl and promptly passed it around to my friends. Consider it the bible to femininity, if you will... the secrets of high-priced call girls contained in one volume. That doesn't mean it teaches women how to be prostitutes, so don't even go down that road. Instead, this book talks about beauty tips, how to make the most of your natural appeal, and how to interact with a lover in and outside of the bedroom in ways that keep his interest solely on you. I would recommend this book to every woman out there.

This book has the most insight into the male psyche I've ever read. I could see where a reader might view the book as male chauvinism, but the bottomline is that it's how men really think and what turns them on and off. I would think all women would benefit in some way from reading this book. For any woman who is interested in learning about how to keep her relationship with her man going strong, this is a must read.

At 54 years of age, it's easy to think you know a lot about intimacy. I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Barrow's insight and delivery of the subject. I am about to enter marriage again after being single for 10 years. I look forward to doing even more to make sure my husband delights in me. God created woman to be a helpmate to man. Sex is the creative arena that allows the couple to more readily bond because it's the physical attracation that most often draws us to each other. Why shouldn't we learn more about the subject? We wouldn't hesitate to become more knowledgeable in other areas.

I was disappointed in the book from the perspective that while it was titalating to get the perspective of Sidney (mostly because of her racy past) I didn't learn anything. Not that I have that much experience but only that I would think most women know everything she imparted. There is no real know how or instructions on how to get things done but just some general verbage on what should be done. Not that it's bad but I think if you have had one or two relationships already then this book is not the one for you. There are several other books on becoming a good lover and partner that far outshine this one. I believe it sells because of the novelty associated with the author and if you like the little juicy tidbits she throws out here and there you will probably enjoy the book. If you want real information on how to really succeed then get something else.

This book was a great insight into the male point of view. It made for meaningful and enlightening conversations between my husband and myself. Concepts that were totally foreign to me as a woman were completely agreed to by my mate. It is a very good book for married couples!
