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.

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

“What the man in your life won’t tell you...but wants you to know.” (Condomania.com)

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! 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.

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.

There is a lot of filler in this book. If you've read anything else about sex, you would have read all their info already. I skipped most of it because they would say things like-"take a shower" & "set the mood". Really? You've just said about everything Cosmopolitan has said for years!

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 admit I haven't finished reading the book because, after I read a few chapters of his sex tips, I used them and our sex life has been off the charts awesome ever since. I am not exaggerating. My new techniques also encourage him to try fun new techniques on me. It's not that the book teaches some sort of secret sex knowledge, it is because it gives little tips and tricks--ways of touching, etc.--I had not thought of. For example: underarms! Yes, underarms!! That is a really erogenous zone apparently. I did not know that before. :) Anyway, good luck, and I sincerely hope this book spices up your love life as much as it's spiced up ours!

At first I had to buy it just for the name. Intriguing and fun? Yes. But SO much more. Like, practical and informative and mostly a reminder that an intimate act is all about the feeling and enthusiasm you put into it more than the physical mechanics (although, there are some pretty great tips in that regard as well)! I liked this book so well I recently took a friend to see the off B'way show by the same name. Very funny and worth the trip!!
My only deviation from a five star review was the editing done on this ebook - horrendous! Not to insult, but I lost count of how many times the authors use the word 'kissing' but it was spelled 'hissing'. There were so many spelling errors it did detract from the enjoyment of reading the work, but not enough to deny others of this good review. At the off B'way show the authors were in situ afterwards to sign autographs and talk about the book - I didn't have the opportunity to take them aside and beg them to take the ebook down and correct the spelling errors before putting back up on the various ebook platforms - in my case, Amazon. I regret not being able to do that. Still, this is a Petrarch Must Read.

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.
