The Sexual Response Cycle

The Sexual Response Cycle is a model, so it’s not individualized, but knowing how you and your partner generally move from arousal to post orgasm is valuable information. This awareness will help you to train for the marathons, so you better know when to arouse, when to penetrate, and when to cuddle. How long should that cuddling be anyways?

Early Arousal:

> Heart rate increases and blood  pressure rises.
> Body muscles tighten up.
> Penis, labia majora, clitoris, and nipples become enlarged and filled with blood.
> Testicles rise closer to the body.

Increased Arousal:

> Breathing deepens, and there may be moaning, gasping, or grunting.
> Genitals get larger as they fill with blood.
> Perspiration.
> Vaginal lubrication.
> Pre-cum appears on the head of his penis.
> Muscle tension increases, toes may curl, and spasms show on the feet face and hands.
> As the genitals swell with blood,  they may appear darker.

As Orgasm Approaches:

> Heart rate, breathing, and blood  pressure reach their peak.
> Thrusting reaches a peak.
> The body flushes, which appears like a rash.
> The body becomes stiff (generally speaking), and for men ejaculation is inevitable.

During Orgasm:

> Loss of muscle control.
> The penis contracts as he ejaculates.
> The uterus contracts.
> The contractions may spread throughout the genitals, sphincter, and even into the rest of his body.
> Men can orgasm with or without ejaculation.
> Some women ejaculate a fluid.

After Orgasm (Refractory Period):

> All men and women have a refractory period,  the time before  they can achieve an erection  or
orgasm again. The time differs depending on the person.

The better you know your partner’s genitals and sexual response cycle, the better a lover you will be.

What strikes me first about this book is how much detailed, PRACTICAL information there is. It's not vague; it gets down to the nitty-gritty of what exactly to do and how to do it. There are some really great photos in here, too... the photos are large, and full color, and a bit on the "porn-y" side, but still erotic and fun. The overall feel of the book is sensual and practical. Even as a somewhat "seasoned" sex partner, I got a lot of useful tidbits from reading this.

This book gives you some cool hints and tips such as how looking at his balls can help you determine man's state of sexual arousal. I also like that the book doesn't assume that "one size fits all" with sex techniques. A part I like from the book says: "Feel her respond to your touch. Discover exactly how she likes her nipples to be stimulated. Is it a squeeze, pinch, flicker, rub, or caress? Does she have one nipple that is more sensitive than the other?" ---I like stuff like this because it lets the readers know that not all women are the same, but that you can learn to please the one(s) you're with! ;)
It gives some really good information about how to give a genuine compliment to your lover. Now, to some of us this may come naturally... but I've been around my share of guys who seem to not have a clue what a genuine compliment sounds like. Sprinkled throughout the book there are little tips on how to say how you feel in order to build love, trust, and arousal.

The final chapter includes a few lightly kinky situations for those curious about kink. Probably a good way to gently introduce your lover to something a little more naughty ;)

Overall a very informative book with great detailed information. I'd say this book is great for couples who would like to experiment more, and would also be good for someone less-experienced who wants to feel more confident in the bedroom. :)

I really want to buy this book, but the fact that it only got 4 and 5 star reviews all posted within a couple of days/weeks of each other had me concerned. I took a careful look at what the other reviewers wrote and at the other times they reviewed . . . I can only conclude that someone associated with this book has written a bunch of bogus reviews in an attempt to sell more copies. Take a look for yourself - most of these reviewers have never reviewed another item, and one only reviews books by Sonia Borg . . . very suspect.

Format: Paperback
Sonia Borg strikes a balance between practical and steamy in her fifth book by Quicker, Marathon Sex. For the most part, the advise is practical and useful for couples who want help turning back the clock and reclaiming lost sizzle. Where it may put some folks off - the pictures. Don't let the 'raunchy' images distract you from the content. The value is in the well orgazined, clear and easy to follow instructions.

Borg's background as a sexologist makes her an expert in this material. Her research and dedication to the topic shows, as is the effort to get people to spend more than 7 minutes on intimacy! This is the book for couples who have time to spare (this is marathon sex we are talking about, not comfortable quickies) which may exclude those with small children at home. On the other hand, Marathon is just the sort of carry-on busy partners should take on a getaway weekend when the desire to connect is high but for whatever reason you need a little help in the imagination department.

Worthwhile, fun and practical advise from Sonia is the sort of gift that keeps on giving for those who take the time to put Marathon Sex on the agenda and not just on their bookshelves.

I would recommend this book to anyone that is having trouble staying in the saddle...so to speak. The little hints to keep you in the game are fun to try and you might just keep them in you repertoire.
