Men have denigrated women and women's sexuality since the dawn of civilization: fortunately, not in all historic cultures. This leaves us today void of any knowledge of what a fantastic creature woman is or can be. As this happens over time, men's sexuality is also diminished, but we don't know it because we are taught this is the way it is supposed to be.
This book offers a surprising peek into women's sexuality and the beauty lies in the mystery. The comments run the age spectrum from 15 to 85 with some respondents experiencing sleep related orgasms before age 10!
Chapter 11 is the most poignant asking, "Will I Ever Experience an Orgasm While Awake?" It is difficult for a man who experiences both to fully appreciate the frustrating sorrow of these women who know their equipment works, but are unable to share the experience with their lover. It would seem the medieval demonization of these normal, natural experiences, along with the demonization of women's sexuality, wrongfully lives on today, misunderstood and unappreciated by the general population.
Most of the book is easily read. There is a little esoteric science-speak for scientists, but the un-judged comments from women around the world are the most important part of the book. Some women have sex dreams before waking to orgasm. Some women have humorous dreams, and some women have no dreams. It is a beautiful mystery.
