One of the few books everyone should read or at least browse

He does repeat some of the same things over again, as one annoyed reader said, but I found that to be important because people forget. If it's an important thought, bring it back up in various chapters in different ways. I read something on page 50, and didn't "really" grasp it until page 150. Once was not enough to achieve the ahhh-haa experience of grasping a new idea/concept/view. Now granted, I knew a lot of the things in here about the psychology of sex/behind sex, or the changes in the body that affect sexual habits and thoughts, however, I feel it was highly worth reading every word in the book to find out the rest. If someone asked me for advice on an issue, I feel I would be able to give him or her enough info to help them, or guide them in toward the right direction. If you're looking for a "how to book" with pictures, this isn't for you. If you looking for how to have great sex by understanding the other person, and yourself (yes, yourself), I would recommend it.

I've been looking for a book for many years to recommend to male clients that teaches how to really touch a woman. Working with women struggling with low desire, I know that, too often, low libido results from her partner's poor technique and a lack of education about a woman's sexual response. Most men learn about sex either from pornography which is completely misleading or from experience which may or may not have taught him what he needs to know. Even sexually experienced men may not know what really turns a woman on. Castleman has produced the best comprehensive book that I know of, to educate and help a man become a superior lover.

Better Than the Best

Great Sex by Michael Castleman should have been entitled Great Love and Sex. It contains a life time of mature and caring information. I have given copies of this book to each of my children and I recommend it to all of the couples I see in marriage and family counseling. This is a book that can change your life and marriage for the best. It is as useful for women as it is to men.

Fantastic--but Mistitled--book

We got this book because my husband was having trouble cuming. The chapter on ejaculation problems helped him a lot. Then we read the rest of the book, and realized that Great Sex is NOT just a "man's" guide. It's for women and couples, too. I thought I knew all about women's sexuality (being one). But I was amazed at how much this "man's" book taught this woman. I can truly say that since reading Great Sex, my husband and I have had better sex, in fact, great sex.

Great Sex bears repeating

Some things bear repeating and the efficacy of Michael Castleman's book Great Sex, is one of them. Nowhere will a reader find another work that provides so much insightful information on how men and women can work together to create delectably healthy sexual relationships. From lackluster sex to male performance anxiety to the dearth of knowledge surrounding the female sexual response, Castleman tackles virtually every sexual issue affecting couples today. According to Castleman, Great Sex is something a couple creates together, not something innate or imitated. One of Castleman's most salient points comes in his discussion of media messages (primarily those conveyed through pornography) and how they wreak havoc on our personal sexual relations. He encourages us to understand that real life luxurious sex is far better than media inspired sex -- where there seems to be a rush to the genitals and then to intercourse. Men who read this work will find a wealth of information and advice regarding penis size, ejaculatory control, masturbation, female pleasure, and the changes that come with age and that can occur through diet and exercise. I do believe men will breathe a sigh of relief when reading this book, for it lets them know they are not alone in their sexual struggles. As a woman, I was surprised to find that the majority of men experience sexual problems, too, and delighted to learn that my husband's problems were not problems at all, but common aspects of male sexuality. There is another equally important way men will benefit from this book, and that is in the way it normalizes women as well. That is, Castleman has finally provided men and women with a book that doesn't approach female pleasure as if it were an anamoly, a mystery never to be solved. I've read many books for men about female pleasure, and most of them talk condescendingly about women's sexual response or they convey the notion that it is something that can never be understand because each woman is so different in terms of how she responds to sexual stimuli. Castleman, however, approaches this subject outside the cloak of mystery and makes women's slower and more individualized sexual response easy to understand, completely normal, and full of potential. He stresses the normalcy of the vast majority of women who cannot orgasm through intercourse alone (a fact so important that Castleman, thankfully, repeats it on a number of occasions), and in doing so, Castleman encourages men and women to discard the age old belief that women, like men, should orgasm through intercourse and asks us to explore all the other avenues that can lead to orgasmic pleasure for both men and women. This request alone erases the idea of foreplay (previously understood as a prelude to the real thing - intercourse) and makes all we do (kissing, touching, stroking, rubbing, licking, loving) the feature show. Moreover, it slows the pace of sex for both men and women and increases th
