About this deal

Nancy Friday, better known for her writings on female sexual fantasies, turns her attention to the opposite sex in Men in Love. Sure, some of the stories now seem a bit dated but nevertheless, the overall feeling one gets is that there are so many men trapped in deeply unsexually satisfying relationships. This is nothing less than an anthology of sexual baggage and my hat is off to the men who wrote in with such honesty and courage. Friday's worldview is heavily colored by Freudian psychoanalysis, and Freud can die in a fire as far as I'm concerned, so I was often dubious and critical of her analyses, most of which stemmed from the following idea: boys want to have sex with their mothers, and view their father as a sexual rival who they're afraid will castrate them.

cite the ages of eight and nine as the time of their first masturbation, fantasy, or sexual sensation.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. Men in Love” is based on more than 3,000 responses (asked by Nancy Friday) with men discussing their sexual fantasies, desires and passions. Okay, so a lady recommend that I read this book to understand the male psyche when it comes to lust, love and sex.

There's the sexy, the sweet, the heartwarming, the imaginative, the crazy, the kinky, the deranged and the downright illegal in about 500 pages. 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! Having read Nancy Friday's MY SECRET GARDEN year's ago, I was keen to see how this study of male sexual fantasies compared. Forever after men sense the forbidding shadow of the primitive, preoedipal mother behind every woman to whom they are attracted. Considering that AO3 has twice as many M/M stories as M/F stories, and fanfiction is almost exclusively written by women, that sure has changed.After reading this book what can I say, I was completely disenchanted and disturbed about the general state of male sexuality.

Another fascinating aspect of fetishistic thinking is the extraordinary amount of detail connected to the object.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. By using the Web site, you confirm that you have read, understood, and agreed to be bound by the Terms and Conditions. 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.
