Format: Paperback
It's easy to believe that Veronica Monet has over a decade of experience as an escort, because she penetrates straight to the heart of human nature with breathtaking directness. No nonsense with this gal, no fancy theories: just "this generally works, that generally doesn't." Her emphasis on wholistic sex is not solely about technique, nor even primarily about technique. She starts with the premise that great sex flows from great relationships, from connection, from focusing on one another. And then she proceeds to tell you exactly how to maintain a great relationship, how to connect with your partner, how to focus on the sharing of sex. And all of it so very simply and clearly explained that you say "Of course I knew that... didn't I?" Maybe you did and maybe you didn't; but it's a good bet that after reading this book your practice of it will improve immensely.

If nothing else this book challenges mainstream perceptions of the sex industry. You may think it strange to take advice from a "prostitute" about relationships and connection. Then again, if you had only an hour or two to establish that with a person - consistently and with your livelihood on the line - maybe you'd get good at it too, eh? Ms. Monet rose to the top of her field. Her grasp of the matter seems more than "good."

For Kinsey, it was a quarter million gall wasps that brought him a sex career as an educator and pioneer. For Veronica Monet, it was boredom at a desk job supplanted by a couple thousand clients over a 14 year profession as a high end working girl. She's taken her love of people, a business acumen and the inspiration of her namesake saint, Veronica Franco of 16th century Venice, and given us this book.

With Monet's work we have the fruits of a soul map, I think, logging helpful lessons from many lovers, mostly men--as the paying part of sex is their world. She writes to women that want to know her secrets. But my guess is that more men read her than women. Off the clock she says she prefers women, yet as a certified sexologist now retired the high end prostitution business, she works as a relationship and love advisor for couples. Her book makes it clear that she loves sex, sees sexuality as sacred. This belief has allowed her to transition to the business of being a teacher of groups and couples as a life coach, soul guide, and sex specialist--a world she believes is mostly about connecting with the divine. Read this book and I think you'll want to go to Tantra Church with this fun time girl. But hold your horses. She's married and retired.

Life is the thing that should be fun and full of joy, not just knocking parts in the bedroom. This is the message I got from Sex Secrets. Indeed, some techniques are found in the last third of the book; but they seemed like afterthoughts to me. This work is more about instruction on the soul and getting close with someone you care about because that's where the meaning is for Monet.

No shock that most of her clients during those working years were married men.

Although the book was well written and somewhat entertaining, it wasn't what I was expecting. Rather than being a manual filled with "techniques" it is more about the psychology of why men pay to see escorts. If you are interested in that, then this book is a very good one. If you are looking for detailed "how-too's" its not.

When I was in middle school my mom decided it was time I learned about relationships. She bought me "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" (another great book), and she bought herself this book. She ended up trying to throw it away, where I found it. It has been one of the best and most informative books I have ever read.

A lot of what this book is about is actually not sex, but the psychology of sex. Reading this book really helped me to understand men as a whole, and I feel that many of my relationships have been better as a result. I would recommend this book to any woman who wants to have a meaningful relationship.

Veronica Monet is the thinking man's industrial sex technician: smart, deep and sexy as hell. Placing the pay-for-play profession in a historical context, she brilliantly decontructs this fascinating and nuanced human interaction. Entertaining, educational and good hot fun, I recommend this book for anyone who's ever had, or is thinking of having, sex.

Overall, I like the book and find it to be both interesting and having good ideas to offer. However, it has an air of advertising about it. It seems like the author was writing for her own publicity and/or customers - like she wants to attract new customers or have her existing customers feel good, rather than present a more rounded and honest/candid sharing of information.

The book starts well but fails to really deliver on the details. The book feels like a large survey of topics: personal hygiene; sex; love; and orgasms. No single topic is really addressed in great detail and often times there are very literal examples or courses of action one should take in the matters of seduction.

If you have read text dedicated to seduction, sex, orgasms, and relationships or have found yourself in midway through the course of a examined life, I would say that this book comes across as too simple and too literal. You, the reader, will likely feel bored. However, I feel as though this would make a decent primer for girls leaving adolescence with a number of unanswered questions.
