"A frankness and directness not usually seen in print... Many female readers can closely identify with these intimate revelations."
"The first major literary breakthrough in this field since the work of Masters and Johnson."
"Read The Hite Report if you want to know how sex really is right now."
The Hite Report, originally published in 1976, was a sexual revolution in six hundred pages. Three thousand women, ages fourteen to seventy-eight, were surveyed on their most intimate feelings about sex: what they do and don't like; how orgasm really feels, with and without intercourse; how it feels not to have an orgasm during sex; the importance of clitoral stimulation and masturbation; and, the greatest pleasures and frustrations of their sexual lives. The Hite Report declares that orgasm is easy and strong for women, given the right stimulation; that most women have orgasm most easily during masturbation or clitoral stimulation by hand; that sex as we define it is a cultural institution, not a biological one, and that attitudes must change to include the stimulation women desire. The Hite Report, which has been published in seventeen languages, was selected in 1998 as one of the one hundred key books of the twentieth century by the London Times and the World Expo.

I first purchased "The Hite Report" in the early 80's.
I am a straight male and a product of the 60's
This is a Sexuality survey of FEMALES,for FEMALES, done BY A FEMALE.
I learned a lot about the opposite sex, and acquired a better understand of a Female's private sexuality.-
YES YES -I told my lady friends "The Hite Report" is Mandatory reading.
Regarding there own personal pleasures, desires, fantasies, wants, and feelings they have had to deal with, they will say "I'm OK" "I'm NOT ALONE"
Now 20+ years later it is still very informative. I purchased 2 additional copies for the Young-ins who tell me it's the "Bomb". Now they think this old geezer is alright.
It is life changing for the Females.
Males will have a better understanding of female's and relationships.
Looks like more copies for the young-ins this Xmas
