"Required education for every man on the planet." -Timothy Ferriss, New York Times bestselling author of The 4-Hour Body and The 4-Hour Workweek
"Ah! Combining meditative awareness with sexual peasure! What could be better--or more life-enhancing--than this?" -Christiane Northrup, MD, OB/GYN physician, and New York Times bestselling author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
"Slow Sex is the real deal on pleasuring a woman. For any guy who want his fifteen minutes of sexual fame, Daedone offers practical and inspired guide to the orgasmic big leagues." -Ian Kerner, sexuality counselor and New York Times bestselling author of She Comes First
"Daedone makes her arguments persuasively, with clear instructions and a knack for the just-right analogy or phrase. This is not another tantra book....OM practice should give many people a fresh and satisfying conduit to deeper sexual intimacy. Recommended." -Library Journal
"Daedone's philosophy is a refreshing counterpoint to the porny mainstream." -Salon.com
"At a time when many women feel pressured to add sex to their Superwoman to-do list without feeling like they get much in return, Slow Sex is a much needed and welcome invitation for women and men to strip down to the bare essentials of a woman's authentic sexuality so sex can fill her up, rather than deplete her. A must-read for any woman who hasn't fully accessed her orgasmic potential and yearns to more fully embody the intimacy and surrender a loving sexual relationship can bring to a woman's wholly healthy life." -Lissa Rankin, MD, OB/GYN, author of What's Up Down There and founder of OwningPink.com --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Top customer reviews
The first half is about OM, which is an interesting concept that I would use under certain circumstances. The second half of the book is really helpful for those who need the basics to many great things for us who are more experienced.
This book is more than important if you are long term married and not sharing sex.
I think many guys think that the difference between sex with themselves and sex with a woman is that he will have help, if there is a woman.
I learned young that if you help a woman come first, she will be there for you in every way she can, unlike you have ever experienced. I admit I meet some women who just lay back and enjoy and wonder why they never see me again. But they are the minority.
So if you are long term married, please read and take this book to heart. You need it more than most. If you haven't given her a real deep kiss with tongue and loving it today, please start kissing and read this book. For the rest I highly recommend it.
The biggest benefit of this book is focusing on communication with the backdrop of intimacy - learning to verbalize desire with a starting point that may be the hardest from which many allow themselves to express.
This difficulty is probably the root cause in broken relationships... And a deficiency carried into new ones, much worse than the blame typically assigned to one another. Working through these issues while learning specific skills is direct and immediately visible.
The lessons ripple into many broader aspects of one's life and I'd like to believe if people in relationships saw sex as a foundation of communication rather than its stereotype, most would have a much deeper connection to their partner.
All that said, the techniques work.
I really dig her stories about her experiences with her uncle and her grandmother. Great examples of living life to the fullest, feeling everything fully.
I look forward to the rest of the book and learning more and experiencing OM for the first time next month (if not sooner).
I highly recommend it to women AND men, singles AND couples.
