About this deal

Friday mentions in the introduction that she has digested sexual taboos from women as empowering and progressive but when faced with the same taboos in men's fantasies she was scandalized and disgusted. If you are a reader that is easily put off by vivid descriptions of sexual acts and if issues like Oedipus complex unsettle you, then I would not advise it. Another fascinating aspect of fetishistic thinking is the extraordinary amount of detail connected to the object. They were less like "I will take my pleasure on this woman whether she likes it or not, disgusting weak woman, I am so superior, fear my power" and more like "I will force this woman to agree to have sex with me, and I will force her to like it, because she is too inhibited to be able to say Yes to what she wants and to know what she will like. Nancy Friday established herself as a magazine journalist in New York, England, Italy, and France before turning to writing full time and publishing her first book, My Secret Garden, in 1973, which became a bestseller.

cite the ages of eight and nine as the time of their first masturbation, fantasy, or sexual sensation. Those fantasies which did not have any outright turnoffs were much too short for me to work up much of a hot and bother (something Nancy explains is normal since men don't take nearly as long to get there, or stay there as long one they've arrived). In the mean time, it gave me and my partner lots to talk about and each conversation was fun if not surprising. However, given the total lack of individuality of anyone in these fantasies beyond the men themselves, it could also be argued that the men in this book value pleasing women only superficially: only as long as the women are their automata, existing only on the man's terms and not their own, doing exactly what he wants and liking it.Having this unconsciously remembered evidence of mother’s warmth and reassurance with him, he is encouraged to go forward into sexual pleasures. Friday's commentary and skipped the fantasies themselves, and gotten the same amount of psychological insight out of the book - and saved myself a fair amount of time and disgust. It tells us how men do love–a stunning insight into the desires that dwell within men’s psyches… and their hearts.

Okay, so a lady recommend that I read this book to understand the male psyche when it comes to lust, love and sex. Anyhow, the book is ok if you're lonely on a weekend and want to pretend you're doing something intellectual while keeping yourself company.With good reason, after I told him about all I'd learnt from this book, he confessed he'd been lying.

She gave them a legitimate arena where they could share their "secret gardens"—the hidden and forbidden but nonetheless real and true. Nancy Friday, better known for her writings on female sexual fantasies, turns her attention to the opposite sex in Men in Love. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Unfortunately, I couldn't get my guy to read this but I did manage to lend it out to a male friend and I'll be interested to hear his take on the book. Whether you agree with her methodology or thesis--fantasies are triumph of love over rage-- Men in Love is engaging, eye-opening reading, and not only for its sexual content.The image of women making love to women grips the male imagination because it expresses one of the dominant themes of male fantasy: the sexually insatiable woman. Of special note; The author, Nancy Friday, answered a few questions to People magazine in response to Men In Love.
