Format: Mass Market Paperback
Nancy Friday asked women from around the world to send in their sexual experiences and fantasies. The result was some of the most provocative reading ever published. If you embarrass easily, this book is not for you. Just about every sexual taboo is mentioned in this book and in great detail. But beyond the fantasies and experiences of these women, are the comments and observations of Nancy Friday herself. This book can be an awakening for any man or woman. An awakening in that, if you have had a certain type of fantasy or experience and feel that you are the only person in the world who has had such, you may learn of others who have had similar ones. Or you may be awakened to fantasies you have never thought of, but after reading the book, find yourself thinking about them, or desiring to do them. I have owned a number of copies of this revealing book only to have different individuals borrow them and never return them. I recall once when I was in a snack bar reading the book, some women noticed it and inquired about its contents. I told them what the book was about and they said, it's very good on my part to be interested in what women think about. They then wanted to read a page, just to see what it was all about. But they didn't end up reading only one page. They kept on reading and reading and reading. I finally had to ask for the book in order to get it back, and half of them were blushing. This isn't a porn book by any means, then again no porn book is even in this ones league!!! For various reasons, I don't own an edition of this book now, but, one reason I don't is that if I did, I know it would only be a short time before someone would want to borrow it, and I'd never see it again. If you enjoy reading about women's real sexual fantasies and experiences, you will want this book.

Let's face it. For most of us, the intellectual aspect of this book and all of Nancy Friday's books on sexual fantasies is not why we read these books. They turn us on. If someone catches us reading them, we can use the excuse that we are interested in social scientific questions about women (and men) and how they think. I think that if not for the social scientific discussions, this book might have been banned in 1973.
The book tries to cover all areas of women's sexual fantasies, so it stands to reason that some parts will squick some readers. I think that it's best not to read it all in one sitting; it will eventually get boring and repetitive. A chapter or two at a time for the first sitting is best. Of course, one will develop a few favorites among all the fantasies, and read them over and over again. I have, but I'm not going to tell which ones. :-)
Men should read this book as well. They're bound to find it as stimulating as women, and it should help them understand women better.

While the book was plentiful of wild, sensual fantasies, I was disappointed in some of them. Many were hard to believe even for fantasies and many sounded like they were written by illiterates. If you're looking for this type of book, I strongly recommend "Women on Top".

Format: Mass Market Paperback
If you're a man who would like to understand how women think and feel about sex, this book, along with the others in its series, is a must have. Contrary to popular belief, women feel just as much lust as a man. Most are highly selective about who they have sex with, but not because sex interests them any less. Unlike a man, the availability of sex is not usually sufficient reason to have sex, but don't think they aren't daydreaming about it.
Some of the fantasies are strange and even disturbing, but I think that is to be expected. The things a person fantasizes about aren't necessarily the things they would want to do in real life.
In any case this is a very good book and one I'd highly recommend for anyone seeking to understand human sexuality.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I bought this for my wife but read it myself - which man doesn't want to hear about women's sexual fantasies? The book covers a wide range of people and fantasies from highly erotic to downright disturbing. However I do have to say -WOW - some of you ladies have the most incredible imaginations!

It also occurred to me as I was reading this that many women do not really understand or appreciate a man's perspective when things go awry in a bedroom. However, I think the author has given persuasive insight into issues that she has identified and she is clearly competent in this area.

The author also alluded to the reasons behind some fantasies and it became obvious with the direction that some took, that they were a reflection upon the state of the woman's relationship with her husband or lover.

From a man's point of view , there is a common thread among many fantasies that is good to know. Above all however, it is worth the read to satisfy the voyeur in us all.

This book is one of the absolute musts for anyone man interested in being a better and more in touch lover. The perspectives it provides are not only informative but stimulate and help to refine the readers sexual fantasies and sexual self concept.

Am I allowed to say that this book gets me off? No? Am I allowed to say that this book could be a marital aid? No? Am I allowed to say that this collection of women's sexual fantasies will teach you things about women that you never even dreamed about?

Well, I guess you can delete my review. By the way, this book is slightly better than "Secret Garden" (the contributors are more open after having read that book) and "Women on Top" (which was a bit too self-conscious) and "Men in Love" (because women do this fantasy thing better than guys)
