Editorial Reviews

Review

"[She] is unmistakably female: no man could  possible be so exquisitely knowing about how a woman can  makes the most of what she's got." --  Playboy

From the Publisher

Not too long ago only "bad" girls had a good time in bed. "Good" girls endured -- and wondered what they were missing.

Then along came "J" and suddenly everything was different. She opened the eyes -- and minds -- of millions of American women with her explicit step-by-step account of her pursuit of the ultimate in sexual pleasure.

Now here's the book that has set off fireworks in bedrooms across America, the book that will teach every woman how to free her body, train her senses, and tap her own hidden erotic resources.

The book designed to make you the woman every man yearns to make love to -- the woman you yearn to be.

"[She] is unmistakably female: no man could possible be so exquisitely knowing about how a woman can makes the most of what she's got." -- Playboy

Fast and just as advertised.

I feel this book helps a woman understand herself and gives her confidence that she must find within.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The "how to please your man" tone had my inner feminist cringing a bit, but most of the advice was quite solid. Respect for yourself and your feelings, a giving attitude, and acceptance of the little foibles that all men and women are prone to will make you happier and more exciting in bed. Ms. J has a no-nonsense, big-sisterly style that is quite assuring. Her advice about "veneral disease" is strictly 1969, but even there she has something timeless to say - "If...there is something wrong in the genital area, don't sit around frozen in fear, run to the gynecologist." For the most part she says what countless others have said since - Self-confidence is sexy and taking responsibility for your own pleasure is even sexier.

The first time I read this book I was too bashful to read it completely. It may be considered out of date in alot of factors but I know I'm good at what I do because of what I learned in the book. I give this book to newlyweds and couples who are in trouble. I have yet to be told they didn't appreciate the gift.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I first read this book when I was 18. At first it was just out of curiosity, but after I became sexually active I read it more seriously. I didn't actually attempt any of the acts described until a couple of years later and I have never had ONE complaint. It really taught me alot, and for those women who are too embarassed to practice the Keigle (sp?) exercises, don't be. The exercise alone is capable of bringing a man to his knees - trust me, I know. I have told countless people about this book and those who bought it AND utilized it swore that their sex life improved greatly. I highly recommend this book to anyone who has never had an orgasm or whose sex life is less than thrilling or for someone just starting out. Find someone you love, or like ALOT, and GET THIS BOOK!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read this book for the first time when I was 13 years old. I had no idea that I would hang on to the advice and information it contained and refer to it even now at age 38. In fact I just gave it to a dear friend who told me that she hadn't had an orgasm in the last 15 years of her marriage. Needless to say, she thought something was wrong with her. She thought she would never feel "those feelings" again. She was stuck in the mentality that "good girls" accept what they get. The Sensuous Woman changed her life. She has blossomed into a wild, vibrant being. This book definitely helped set her on that path. I can't recommend it highly enough, especially for women who don't know the joys and beauty of their own sensuality, or for those who have been made to feel bad for thinking that there could be something to sex besides dutiful intercouse.

1971....such a long time ago. Yes, this book has outdated references regarding clothing and gender subservience....but that doesn't negate the value of the sensuality exercises! An excellent book to read in bed aloud to your mate to drive him nuts....especially the sexual techniques section...great source of sweet and wonderful fantasies to play out...

A friend shared this book with me on a plane nearly 30 years ago. I shared it with my wife who was reluctant to broach the subject but who nonetheless slowly acquiessed. The results have been a very fine marriage. Thanks "J."

6 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Jenae Richards on February 23, 2007
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read this book when I was about 17-years-old, and I found it fascinating. The topic was rather risque for the time (early '70s), and it was unusual to find a book that spoke about sex in a real -- but non-clinical -- manner.

However, like many of the reviewers who have recently posted reviews on this book, I have to say it is outdated -- still good, but outdated.

I would suggest that people looking for a new millineum take to sensuality check out "The Guide To Becoming The Sensuous Black Woman (And Drive Your Man Wild In and Out of Bed!) which is also listed here on Amazon.com (the book may single out black women, but the advice is applicable to all women!).

14 of 20 people found the following review helpful A Kid's Review on March 15, 2006
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I first read this as a 12 year old boy, having found it in my parent's bookcase. Reading it helped me become quite the popular guy with the ladies throughout my teens and twenties, and for that, I thank the author.

I found it again recently at age 34 while home for the holidays. Having 20+ years of experiencing human sexuality behind me (and being quite the student of it during that time) has helped me see that this was probably a fine book for the average repressed girl of the 60s and 70s, but has no place being read today other than for nostalgic purposes.

The edition I speak of was a paperback published in 1971.

The book contains more information on wearing a dress to complement your legs than it does about birth control or disease prevention. It speaks openly about how fantastic orgies can be, yet advises women to run when a man takes out the handcuffs.

Conflicts like this are unhealthy and quite possibly dangerous! Did I pick up on them at age 12? Of course not, but by contemporary standards, this book should be shelved and shared with young women as an example of where the country's collective mind was 30-40 years ago, but certainly not today.
