Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Who is best equipped to give sex tips to heterosexual women about how to please a man in bed? Why, gay men, of course. Who would know better than gay men what makes men happy? Dan Anderson (gay) and best friend Maggie Berman (straight) have collaborated on this how-to book for women who feel that their lovers are afraid to ask for what they want. Chatty, informative, and graphic--in a clinical, not sexy way--Anderson and Berman have borrowed a little from Helen Gurley Brown, a little from Miss Manners, and a lot from Masters and Johnson to show women how the other half loves. Never smug and mostly useful, Sex Tips shows that sexual orientation can as easily be a potluck as a culture clash. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

“The best-kept secrets of sex experts (and a few sexually satisfied women) are now up for grabs—and road-testing.” (Cosmopolitan)

Written very well, fun but easy to understand and follow.

The biggest distraction I had with the book (Kindle version) -- numerous spelling errors and typos.
Tether
This is a pretty good book since who would know better than a man what a man likes.

If I might say so myself, I was a toe-tingler before I read this book. Now I'm a full-body tingler! Typically I don't bother with sex manuals because they either suggest technically impractical/impossible/silly maneuvers, or else tell me things I already knew. This one is different - funny, practical, and provides general guidelines as well as specific suggestions. I will endorse the advice therein for two reasons: One, the book includes some of my own tried-and-true techniques. Two, I tried the ones I didn't already know. They didn't seem contrived at all, and they did add to the experience. The non-technical illustrations in this book are absolutely charming, I love them. If I have one criticism, it's the book's frequent suggestions that good sex leads to financial reward. I bought this book intending to rock my man, not just shake the change out of his pants. A smart girl can get that without sex anyway. Hmm, maybe I should write a book of my own?

This book was great. I have been married for 9 years and I tried a couple of things that I had read and amazingly they worked. My husband couldn't believe what I was doing and wanted to know where I learned it. It is nice to know that you can do some simple things that make his experience and yours much more pleasurable. This book is a must have for anyone who wants to know some secrets to what men like.

This book was GREAT! It gives very explicit details and diagrams on how to improve your technique in bed (and off the bed). There are also some great tips on how to set the stage,what not to say, what guys like and don't like. I learned a lot as well as learned some stuff that I will never do again.

While some of these techniques and tips are useful or at least a little entertaining, this book doesn't have much to offer to women looking for a better understanding of straight men's experience of sex. Most unfortunately, it reinforces all kinds of stupid stereotypes of straight men as sex maniacs (they're apparently "always in the mood") and shameful attitudes about women's bodies (don't tell him about your period! god forbid you'd ask him to be mature enough to deal with the realities of your body and its needs! ew!). If you're looking for real advice on how to be a better, more understanding partner to a straight man, look elsewhere. Or at least take this with a MAJOR grain of salt.

This book has good tips and ideas. You will not regret buying it. I gave it to a friend, and the feedback was this: "He almost saw G-d" Definitely worth your time.

Format: Hardcover
I found Sex Tips for Straight Women from a Gay Man to be a refreshing break from other sex manuals that are clinical and cold, or thinly veiled porn. Sex Tips is enjoyable due to its friendly, fun tone, and compares itself to "a good coach for the sport of our choice."
The authors handle sensitive material and any squeamishness towards sex by being humorous and upbeat but straightforward. For example, the chapter on oral sex provides the insight, "Remember that Mr. Stiffy is your friend and that he will feel only as comfortable as you do."
The scope and detail of the content was the most impressive aspect of Sex Tips. Many tips are actually pages long and contain step-by-step drawings. Entire chapters are devoted to usually neglected subjects like what to do with the testes during sex and the etiquette of declining an unwanted sexual encounter or act.
The only flaws are the jokes about women being good at sex for material gains and the authors' occasional tendency to dismiss an act they dislike, thus undermining the overall thoroughness. But compare these down notes to the usual "have sex in the dark so he can't see you" attitude of other sex manuals for women, and Sex Tips is obviously one of the more femme-positive books around. Overall, I recommend this book to women who love (sex with) men.

Could be an awesome book, good information and written well but I have to put the book down every time the authors suggest using intimacy to obtain gifts. And they do this often.Very demeaning.

I loved reading this book, co-written by a gay man and his straight female best friend. They take turns writing their thoughts and tips, and it is highly entertaining and often very helpful. I have always maintained that a gay man is one of the best sources for a straight woman to go to for how to please a man. And, they give new meaning to tubes of cookie dough. The illustrations are incredibly good. It's a light, entertaining, and often eye-opening read, and I think some of the tips are incredibly good.
