Don't you get it? This is what turns women on! My wife loves to come home to a clean home. And when I clean out the refrigerator...I'm soooo gettin' some! A female friend of ours says there's nothing more sexy than a man with a mop in his hand! They eat it up. They love it! It's all in attitude, dude! I know what's sexy and what pays off...in more ways than one. I finally got it. I'm thinking about putting on seminars for the clueless guys out there who just don't get it. So, leave all of the macho BS at the door. Open the book, open your mind, and apply one of the lessons. Grab a mop and some flowers for your women and let the fun begin!

It's a joke, folks, it's supposed to be enjoyable. It's not earthshaking or revealing, just some good looking guys doing housework, that sort of thing. If you're offended or feel it sets women back a zillion years, oh well, it sucks to be you. Just don't buy it or act highly offended if somebody passes a copy around.

I intend to buy a few copies* of this book and give them as gifts. It makes me laugh. I think of "That '70s Show" when they were showing the various characters' fantasies. The main mom, Kitty, is laying on the sofa, saying "Oh, right there, Red, oh" and the camera pulls back and you see Red, her character's husband, dusting a tall lamp. It was funny, because it was silly. SO buy it if you think you can take the joke, avoid it if you're easily offended.

*FYI I don't get a kickback from the publishers for recommending this book and I have absolutely nothing to do with the group that put it together. (That was suggested of one of the reviewers) If they wanted to give me a kickback, I'd probably accept. Or not. Depends on what the offer was.

For those who are offended or annoyed by this book, grow up and get a clue... and a sense of humor while you're at it.

The simple fact of the matter is that women are still getting the raw end of the deal in most households. We still do more of the housework, more of the childcare, and unlike our grandmothers we work full time too. If anything, we want guys to take on more of the housework than at any other time in history.

I'm not even thirty yet. Between my husband and I, I have the higher sex drive. I'm not from some clueless generation that is stuck in some backward time warp where all women care about is the house and where women never get off. I'm also a feminist. But I still end up doing over 90% of the housework, errands, and childcare. My husband isn't dumb or blatantly sexist, just clueless, a bit lazy and unobservant. As a result, he doesn't even know what kind of milk we drink or notice when something needs to be done around the house. I love him, but he's been slow to realize how good he has it.

I'm not alone in this. Most guys my age fit the man-child stereotype to some degree or another and as a result most partnered women my age are doing more than their fair share around the house. So, does the idea of a good looking guy in nice-fitting jeans doing housework, making me tea, asking about my day, and offering me a no-pressure, guilt-free foot rub turn me on? You bet. Why? Because the simple fact of the matter is that women's brains are actually different from men's. Unlike the male brain, the female brain doesn't automatically stop thinking about everything but sex during sex. Guys need to learn this. You want your girlfriend or wife to be in the mood more often? You want her to be nicer? happier? more likely to keep you around? Do your own laundry.

Whoever said this book is lame and sexist needs to have their head examined. Sexist? I'm a 42 year mother of two, former journalist and an 'independent woman'. I found the book hysterical and right on. It's funny, but true. All my friends are passing it around, and our husbands like it even better. It's a great laugh. It's also PG, so one can give it to almost anyone as a gift. I'm giving it to just about everyone on my list!

A very funny gift book full of all the things a woman really wants to hear from her man (Get it? Porn for women...) illustrated with pics of good-looking fellas. PG enough to give my mom, my sister and my nieces - which I already did! These guys will do the laundry, bring home chocolate, and not think of letting you clean the toilet! Gave it to friends who had to finish a good laugh before turning the page.

Great gift for mother's day, wedding shower, any darned occasion.

As an ardent First Amendment supporter and a feminist scholar who has done lots of research on sex work, porn, etc., I fully support women who enjoy "regular" porn, or feminist porn that includes, well, sex, as this book does not. But to the reviewers who slammed this particular book for its "offensive" assumption that women only find housework sexy, I think you're missing the point.

The book is not reifying the notion that women do not like sex. Nor are they claiming that "regular" porn and this brand of "porn" are mutually exclusive, or that women can't appreciate both. They are merely expanding the concept of what's considered sexy, what can be considered a turn-on, and what can be defined as sensual. Rather than narrowly define what is sexy as that which is explicitly sex-oriented (and such a narrow definition would be more offensive, I would think, than any photo in this book), this book evokes a spectrum, and encourages people to find the sensual in the everyday. And c'mon, anything that can make dull chores more exciting should be celebrated!

Yes, it's cheesy and some of the photos/quotes are even cringe-worthy. But that just adds to the campy appeal. But it's also a lighthearted, silly gift book, so there's no need (for detractors or even for me, reading so much into it) to take it so darn seriously. If it's not your idea of fun, simply don't purchase it.
