35 of 38 people found the following review helpful By TammyJo Eckhart VINE VOICE on January 26, 2004
Format: Paperback
Martha Cornog promises to give us information on masturbation usually only accessible to experts of sexuality or ethics, philosophy or religion. In six sections she covers a lot of information, all of it well documented and much of it in the words of the scholars, authors, and thinkers she's used in her research. This isn't a how-to book, it isn't erotic or porn, and it isn't for the casually curious. It is a well-written and supported look into the often taboo subject of self or mutual pleasure for pleasure's sake.

Format: Paperback
The Big Book of Masturbation is an enjoyable collection of material that is complete and informative. Not a Dry presentation, but Intresting and Informative. Information in this book came form many sources, and credit is given in all cases to the source author. There is also many additional references given for further research into other Books or Websites. There is something for everyone in this Book. I think you will find yourself Jerking Off after a chapter or two of this book.
