Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"You know, of course, that you want it," taunt Ted Allen and Scott Omelianuk, the authors of Esquire's Things a Man Should Know About Sex, wittily playing upon readers anxieties. "What most men don't know, unfortunately, is how to do it." Esquire contributing editor and executive editor, respectively, Allen and Omelianuk coauthored Esquire's Things a Man Should Know About Style and Esquire's Things a Man Should Know About Marriage. Like their previous books, this tongue-in-cheek guide to success between the sheets is based on the magazine's popular feature "Things a Man Should Know." The sound advice and humor at men's expense may delight women even more than it does men: menage a trois, the authors wisely advise, for example, is French for "in your dreams."

"Like their previous books, this tongue-in-cheek guide to success between the sheets is based on the magazine's popular feature Things a Man Should Know. The sound advice and humor at men's expense may delight women even more than it does men: menage a trois, the authors wisely advise, for example, is French for 'in your dreams.'"--Publishers Weekly...".a witty and literate book. It's a fast and funny read, full of sly suggestions, innuendo, charming facts and figures, and the kind of advice even a woman could love."--Bridalguide.com. "If your man has trouble motivating himself to get off the couch and exercise, he'll be happy to hear this exciting stat...doing the mattress mambo three times a week can burn 7,500 calories a year, the equivalent of running 75 miles." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
At first I wasn't exactly flattered when my fiancee got me a how-to book about sex--gee, thanks a lot. But this little volume is as much about humor as it is about "getting it on"--and it is hilarious! Full of smart advice, tidbits, do's and don'ts, and a seriously sexy cover. I'm gonna get a bunch of them for my groomsmen. Meanwhile, for other women who might be thinking about picking this one up for their men, the tone of the instructions is pretty much summed up by the first three words: "It's about her." Ain't that the truth!

Format: Paperback
This slim, shiny volume can slip into the palm of your hand or into your pocket but not on your bookshelf b/c i don't see how you can read it after flipping through it more than once. It has the feel of one of those mini-books you see on display at the local Borders, like The Little Book on Zen. In short, it's a novelty book.
I bought this book because I enjoy the show "Queer Eye on the Straight Guy" and was intrigued to find out that Ted Allen (the Food guy)co-wrote this book. But I was disappointed to learn that it is basically a bunch of pithy aphorism-like setnences that is ALWAYS followed by a cheeky joke or sarcastic comment. While amusing to read in a magazine article format (why, like Esquire!) I was looking for something more substantial a la Queer Eye. Y'know, some tips, some ideas with the overall goal of improving your sex life and getting your mojo back on track.
Instead, it's a multi-font joke book with "advice" like don't wear black socks in bed. Wacka wacka.
Think I'll stick to watching Queer Eye. That seems to do more to help a guy's game than this weak book.

If you want a book on sex ed, this is not it. This book provides witty annecdotes about healthy and fun sex. It's a great book to share with others and laugh outloud. It's mostly about what you already know with a funny twist, and maybe you'll get a few good hints out of it too. I laugh every time I read it, and I've given it as a gift to several friends.
