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.

Review

“Chattily didactic, the book offers witty—and yes, explicit—desciptions of all manner of how-tos, how-tease and how-t’OOH!s.” (Daily News)

“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)

“This book gives very specific advice on how to knock his socks off . . .” (Dating911.com)

“A cannily entertaining romp through the nuts and bolts of sex from the male perspective.” (Salon.com)

“A primer that takes dish deeper than a Chicago-style pizza.” (New York Post)

“You might want to check out Sex Tips for Straight Women From a Gay Man.” (Glamour)

“The dishy, humorous voice the authors developed makes this a nonthreatening sex manual.” (Philadelphia Weekly)

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.

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.

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 think it's accurate to say this is mainly the basics, but that is its strength, not its weakness. I bet you think you know all the basics, right? Are you sure? I would say a lot of women don't really know as much as they think they do (neither do most guys, I admit), and this book provides a good, no nonsense body of information. I was proud of my girlfriend for buying this book!

This book looked so promising and the reviews were good everywhere, so I bought it. It has nothing new in it . It just enforced all kinds of sterotypes and made straight woman seem like they only used sex to manipulate their partner into buying them things. He was also very judgemental of alternative sex practices or relationships when his own sexual preference is seen as an alternative lifestyle by some. It was also very much geared to "first time" sex...if you know nothing about the partner including where they live. If I gained anything from this book and the great reviews I read is the knowledge that lot of people have very little and very bad sex. I'm sorry.

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.
