"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

There are a lot of checks in the good column for this book. The writing is good. It flows. It doesn’t suffer from too much scene setting and the dialog is fluid. There’s a lot of dialog, but it isn’t distracting. Two quotes that stood out to me that rang with truth were, “each partner seems to see it their own way,” and, “psychology of family relationships is a tricky thing.”
However, one thing I can say that I didn’t like is the treatment of women. I actually caught the phrase “you women” in this book, as in “you women” all act like….blah, blah, blah. There is no easier way to demean all women than by lumping them in together with phrases like “you women.” Moreover, it wasn’t just implied but stated several time over that a woman is the cause of her man’s cheating. It must be because she’s sexually repressed! It must be because she hasn’t found her true animal nature! In fact, the book goes on to state that a woman has four identifiable phases in her life, “a girl, a queen, a mistress, and a housekeeper.” The book states a wife should strive to be a wife-cum-mistress, and that will be what makes her husband faithful. Yikes. The fact is, this ‘sex is the reason for everything’ theory is way, way too black and white for most people. This book is certainly the offspring of the id, ego, and superego theorem. However, it pays no credence to post- Erikson Lifespan Theory that states that we humans are not subject to and constantly either embracing or fighting our base desires.
"ROUTINE is intimacy’s chief enemy, and monotony kills LOVE. As time goes by, boredom and estrangement creep into nuptial bed."
The Mask is the story of Daria, a professional woman who discovers that her husband is cheating. Instead of following her first instinctive reaction and confronting him, she decides to find out just why he has been cheating, in her own way.
She goes on a quest to find out how to become 'the perfect wife'. This leads her on a journey of eroticism beyond anything she could previously have imagined.
It left me on the edge of my seat and once I began reading, I just had to finish it. I opened the first page and was immediately hooked. The author was able to present intimacy and eroticism in a really compelling way. He teaches principles and lessons about sexuality and sexual intimacy, using fiction in a way that is far from boring. There were some places where the conversation was quite long – almost a monologue of sorts – but everything tied up together nicely.
You will probably pick up something (or several things) from this book. So, did it spice up the bedroom part of my marriage? Sorry, that’s privileged information :). But you should read this book and find out for yourself. I totally recommend it.
Warning: It contains ménage and highly erotic encounters. Not for the faint-hearted.
The protagonist, Daria, a young, married, "next door" kind of woman seeks help to save her marriage after discovering her husband's occasional ventures. Guided by a fellow psychologist in an exploration of her own sexuality as an effort to recover her dull marital sex life, events take a radical turn when he suggests hiring a "tutor" called Xenia, a full time slut masquerading as an upscale courtesan whose highly sophisticated teachings take them both into an spiral of arresting fantasies crashing into bittersweet real life experiences.
Although Xenia's lessons are not for every woman to try, these dangerously explicit encounters will make you look at your sex life from a new perspective, and question if you ever allowed your very own desires absolute freedom. Once the guilt is gone, Daria's journey through her most unknown pleasures unveils a totally new woman, able to enjoy her sexuality for her own pleasure. When you know how to please yourself first, then you can please your partner. Definitely worth the ride.

This is a well-made erotica, no doubt. But what I found (for some odd reason) more interesting, is the realistic setting it is...Read more
