From the Inside Flap

Sex in the woods is not as simple as it sounds. Sure, you know the basics (after all, if you don't, you probably shouldn't try it in the wilderness), but what about all the little details that should be considered before embarking on an alfresco rendezvous that can make the difference between love under the moon and stars and love on the cold, hard ground? For example, what sex essentials should be part of your first-aid kit? What kind of camping equipment provides particular comfort for two? What are the effects of the elements on condoms, spermicides, and other contraceptives? How do you find that perfect spot for your love den? And how about foreplay, personal hygiene, and protection from pesky plants or adverse weather conditions while you're exposed?

How to Have Sex in the Woods answers these and other questions for the millions of hikers, backpackers, and campers who know that there's more than one way to commune with nature and that a campfire is good for more than just roasting marshmallows.

How to Have Sex in the Woods is full of useful, factual information, covering all the practical how-tos that every amorous camper should know but may have been afraid to ask. It is a must for anyone looking forward to his or her next outing á deux.

From the Back Cover

"Chock-full of carefully researched information, interspersed with dozens of humorous 'word to the wise' real-life anecdotes, How to Have Sex in the Woods is a terrific source for those of us prone to wax romantic in the great outdoors. And a definite inspiration for the rest of us who have never given it much thought."         
--Eleanor Macklin, Ph.D., professor emeritus, Syracuse University, and certified sex therapist

As a reader from Upstate New York (where winters are very cold and where thoughts of "Sex In The Woods" keep us warm)I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Colombo's entertaining book. The reader from Pacific NW really missed the point of the whole book. It's not to be read as a manual, but rather a light hearted (tongue-in-cheek) book that certainly offers good advice on a subject most of us are interested in, but also keeps you amused along the way. My thanks to the author for sharing some great ways to rev up a tired sex life!!!! We're off to the woods next weekend!

I bought this book as the "perfect gift", and was thumbing through it before I gave it away. I couldn't put it down! (Darn book kept me up 'til 3 am!) You've got to read this book. Colombo's anecdotes were engaging, and hysterical. I honestly laughed until I cried! It's an informative, lighthearted approach to something that just doesn't happen "naturally", unless you read this book and plan accordingly!

I can't be quite sure what to make of receiving this book as a gift, not being much of a person to be roughing it in places where the sun don't shine. But a quick skim had me smiling. Imagine instructions to make out a hammock (delicately of course), to keep your sleeping bag dry, and some erogenous games to play in the "woods", even if that means your own backyard. Guess it makes for a pretty fun gift for "back to nature" friends and as such it's a good laugh. Don't expect to end up becoming Fabio.

A friend told me about this book. It manages to be both interesting and informative and provides a wealth of useful information--like the ABCs of romantic dining al fresco, what to pack in your safe sex first aid kit, and how to protect yourself from bugs without poisoning your partner--while keeping the tone lighthearted and sexy. Can't wait to try out some of this stuff on my next camping trip.

I just saw this book last weekend it was given as part of a bridal gift to the maid of honor who is a big camper. I thought the book was funny and couldn't believe some of the ideas. I think it is a cute book for any of your outdoorsy friends.

Although the author's bio stated she was NOT an expert sex counselor, she has obviously done this before! I read this book in preparation for a trip to the Canadian Rockies, where I hope to do a lot of hiking and have some fun! While some of the advice was commonsense, other items make you sit up, take notice and think things through a little longer than your hormones would. I also loved the recipes, just the thing to round out a great week in the outdoors. I'll definely recommend this to fellow camper/hikers/outdoors people!
