A Treasure Map for Sexual Intimacy and Fulfillment,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Pleasure: A Woman's Guide to Getting the Sex You Want, Need, and Deserve (Hardcover)
In "Pleasure", Dr. Hilda Hutcherson approaches the topic of female sexuality from a lighter, more personal and fun-friendly perspective than she did in "What Your Mother Never Told You about S-E-X". In "S-E-X", the reader is like a new patient engaging in a reassuring and open conversation with her well-chosen and nurturing gynecologist. By the time we get to "Pleasure" the doctor-patient relationship has grown significantly more personal and trusting, and the topics addressed take on a whole new level of intimacy.
"Dr. Hil" is to women and sex what "Dr. Phil" is to relationships. "Pleasure" is filled with emotionally supportive and detailed advice. The numerous illustrations are sensually tasteful and instructive. This is the perfect book for anyone who seeks to improve her sexual happiness, but is put off by the often cheesy plethora of `hot sex' guides on the market today.
"Pleasure" frees the reader to feel good about herself, discover her own unique style of `sexy' and explore both physically and psychologically what uniquely rocks her boat. (Sections of chapter 5 can stand alone as a manual for any man interested in obtaining the ultimate step by step exploratory guide on giving pleasure). We also learn that orgasm is just one of many sources of pleasure, and not the be-all end-all win or lose aspect of a woman's sexual enjoyment.
The book covers a range of topics, including self-care (emotionally, spiritually, psychologically and physically), personal pleasure centers (through step-by-step physical exploration, either alone or with your partner), sex-act education (both basic and advanced), sexual enhancements (toys, exercisers, sensual products, fantasies and games) and last, but not least, how to maintain a satisfying sex life through oft-times frustrating life changes.
We learn that there is much more to "sexy" than what we have been commonly misled to believe; Dr. Hutcherson shares with each reader the key to unlock that special pleasure-seeking energy within herself and exude her uniquely alluring `check-me-out' energy to the world. "Pleasure" is for anyone who is less than thrilled with her sexual status quo and seeks expert advice on how to obtain the sexual fulfillment she deserves.
