"Psychologist Block (North Shore-Long Island Jewish Medical Ctr.) mixes hot scenarios with a wide menu of tips for speedy sex in many settings and occasions. Writing for couples past the honeymoon and too busy for love, he is especially detailed in explaining how women can power up to orgasm to enjoy fast, furious, and fun encounters as much as their male partners. His repeated advice about lubrication, safe sex, general safety, and legality is outstanding, and his style is frank and amusing.The book is illustrated with attractive, soft-core photos. . .." Martha Cornog, Library Journal, February '07

As a fellow author and online advisor in the dating/love/relationship field, I come across a lot of new material in my quest for helping other people. While I don't usually cover the sex angle very much, I'll occasionally see something that I think is interesting and possibly worthwhile for those adventuresome souls.

So here's a good read that I've found by Dr. Joel Block.......

This book redefines the "quickie." This is not by any means your grandmother's quickie, the "wham-bam, thank you, ma'am" duty sex that pleased only the man. The kind of quickie that Dr. Block writes about are provocative encounters that may not always be quick, but are always different; they break the usual pattern, bring in elements of daring and the forbidden that are not part of typical lovemaking. These quickies may not always be speedy, but it will get the readers blood flowing and help create a sexual frenzy. This is a woman's quickie, and that's very different!

Here's a hot example from the book that I found intriguing:

"We were shopping for some new clothes for him and he was trying them on in the dressing room. It was late and the store was empty. I stepped in the dressing room with him and rubbed against his underwear. Then our eyes locked. Next thing I know my arms were above my head and I was being held against the wall. I did my best to keep as quiet as possible, but I'm afraid the attendant had some suspicion. When we came out of the dressing room he had this look and he glanced at us with knowing eyes."

What's unique about this book? There are 25 full-page, beautifully shot, actual photos in the book with delicious (spoken like a typical guy) models wearing little or no clothing.

I had resigned myself to the belief that being married means my sex-life will be mostly routine forever, until I read this book. The main concept that sticks with me is that you can force an exciting opportunity out of a seemingly mundane situation (sneaking into a closet/bathroom for sex at your friend's wedding reception for example). These ideas are not new, but the author walks you through the thought process step by step, along with the possible risks involved. I'm not saying this book is a magical force that will but your love-life in an orgasmic head-lock and choke the indifference out of it, but it has given me hope for tomorrow. Now I look for places where sex is possible when I'm out with my wife, something I don't ever remember doing. Further topics addressed are the importance of expressing your wants with your partner, as well as learning or re-learning how to just have some fun. The soft-core photos mainly serve to keep your attention and arouse curiosity about the following chapters. This book will not appeal to everyone, but if you'd like to spice things up at least a little bit, you have nothing to lose by reading it.

I like this book for it's way of breaking it down to understand. There are some things in the book where I think we've already tried it or it seems redundant, but for the most part there's useful information to gleen from the book. I didn't pay a whole lot as it was a used book, so I don't feel I wasted any money at all.
