About this deal

no signs of cover wear, clean glossy, pages clean, bright and unmarked, spine tightListing Includes Books Image. Another fascinating aspect of fetishistic thinking is the extraordinary amount of detail connected to the object. 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. At birth infants are so undifferentiated that they have the capacity to receive erotic stimulation at every aperture of the body and any area of skin: from either or both sexes; from animals, food, objects, colors, currents of air, gradations of temperature.

An eye-opening collection of male sexual fantasies, from the international bestselling author of erotica, including Women on Top . NANCY FRIDAY is the author of eight books: MY SECRET GARDEN, FORBIDDEN FLOWERS, JEALOUSY, MEN IN LOVE, MY MOTHER/MY SELF, WOMEN ON TOP, THE POWER OF BEAUTY and OUR LOOKS, OUR LIVES.

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.Love and sex are two different things, as long as you keep that in mind as well as an open mind this book is pretty damned good! She gave them a legitimate arena where they could share their “secret gardens”–the hidden and forbidden but nonetheless real and true. As we grow older, become socialized, and develop identity, the satisfactions we pursue become more specific. Having this unconsciously remembered evidence of mother’s warmth and reassurance with him, he is encouraged to go forward into sexual pleasures. I'd love to see a collection of fantasies similar to this and My Secret Garden done today with the internet having changed so much in our awareness of the diversity of fantasy life.

I laughed out loud when she said that women are repulsed by M/M, because (she says) a woman is threatened by the idea that a man could want to be with another man rather than with her. The men are not repulsed by women's bodies, genitalia (or even anuses), pubic hair, effluvia, or uninhibited sexual desire or pleasure - quite the opposite. If people could begin to look at their sexual fantasies as easily as they accept their night dreams, we’d all be a lot healthier about our sexual identities. The wonderful part about the section where straight men fantasize about sex with men is that it shows two things at once--men who identify as straight and men who at the same time fantasize at times about sex with other men.

Voyeurism is a general term for people who get sensual satisfaction from looking, often with the knowledge, consent, and even full participation of the sexual object. Friday said she got very few rape fantasies among her submissions, though I think her definition of what constitutes a rape fantasy may be significantly narrower than mine because she said she got only 3, and I counted several more than that in the book. It definitely does seem from the stories themselves that early experiences can have a profound impact on a man's sexuality, but I don't think EVERY sexual preference, mainstream or kinky, relates back to childhood. She graduated from Wellesley College in 1955 and moved to Puerto Rico, where she worked as a travel reporter and editor. I would like to ask women readers: How must it feel to be the gender that has a sexual organ considered so nasty that nobody, not even the woman who says she loves you, wants to look at it?

In creating this historic study, Nancy Friday listened -- without disapproval, apology or censorship -- to the candid responses of thousands of men aged fourteen through sixty. Wanting to see, but afraid to look, men invent voyeuristic fantasies to heal a paradox, the conflict in themselves. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. Sexually "liberated" women are not taking their power away from men and back into their own hands; they are giving men exactly what they most want.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). Nancy Friday, best-selling author of feminist and erotic literature, psychoanalyst and socio-sexual historian, has been the leading witer on women’s and men’s sexual fantasies since the publication of her first best-selling erotic book, My Secret Garden . Adult men being sexually attracted to and having sexual fantasies about girls below the age of majority, including pubescent girls. It is an old Freudian model that relies upon familial conditioning to explain something that is as indelible as the color of one's eyes. Even when the men are fantasizing about their own wives: nothing, flatline, I was always left absolutely blank on anything beyond her appearance.

While the focus of these questions relate to fantasies and are not specific to men, she responds to questions frequently asked to sexuality professionals. It doesn't have to be about exploring their own or their partner's (or anyone else's) psychology, or their own (or anyone else's) relationship dynamic in any way, or about communicating with their partner (or other people communicating with each other) through physical intimacy at all. 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. Friday is pretty much unsufferable and I'd cheerfully string her up and apply a cane to her for making such idiotic assumptions about women, and engaging in quite some downtalking to men. I go back to this book time and time again, not to turn me on, but to give me a deeper understanding of male sexuality.Besides expecting fantasies that focused on different psychological elements, I also expected there to be a lot about exploring relationship dynamics in the fantasies, but it was almost entirely just about wanting to do the physical act itself, or remembering doing it. If you happen to do the same just remember your partner is with you and not out there acting out those fantasies. My conclusion is, if you are sensitive and of course a woman and can be slightly envious then just LEAVE this book alone and go for Nancy Friday's "My Secret Garden" instead or "Forbidden Flowers" which is more about women's fantasies, then maybe you'll be more prepared and can move on to Men in love.
