Orgasms for Two: The Joy of Partnersexby Betty Dodson
Synopses & Reviews
There are many sex manuals on the shelves of bookstores. They offer advice on being sexier, on giving him what he really wants, on making her wild with desire. Most of them are about as substantive as a filmy piece of lingerie. What is missing is a down-to-earth, realistic, honest book.
Betty Dodson, Ph.D., is an international authority on sexual self-help and the author of the multimillion-copy bestseller Sex for One: The Joy of Self-Loving. She has devoted three decades of her life to sexual liberation for both women and men.
In Orgasms for Two: The Joy of Partnersex, Dr. Dodson debunks the myths that keep us from having satisfyingand mutually satisfyingsex lives. She shows us how to be happier and healthier through the benefits of pleasure, and she shows us how to get to know ourselves and our partners better, whether its the inner and outer workings of the anatomy or the best sex toys to bring to bed.
She writes often from her own experiences, because she feels people learn best through example, and she writes from the knowledge acquired through years of working with women and men, teaching workshops, and doing research. The knowledge gained through reading Orgasms for Two is like having a kindly, remarkably frank guide tell you all the things youve always wanted to know but never had anyone to ask.
Open Orgasms for Two and see how rewarding it is to cast aside conventional beliefs about sexuality and begin to enjoy the best sex of your life.
"Everyone has a right to keep his or her sex life private. The reason Im willing to go public with mine is because it has been proven to me time and again that the most effective way to teach something as subjective as sexual pleasure is by using the power of example. Since the seventies, I have shared my challenges and successes in the process of exploring sexual pleasure. What is happening to me in terms of my sexuality is not an isolated incident taking place in a vacuum. The chances are good that many other people are dealing with similar issues."
Although the idea of pleasure might be frivolous in a world that appears to be on the brink of horrible disasters, I believe one of our best hopes for survival depends upon embracing and celebrating human sexuality as a healing force." Betty Dodson, Ph.D.
"Orgasms for Two" does for couples what "Sex for One" did for individuals. Offering practical ideas for improving sexual skills so men and women can add extra dimensions of excitement and pleasure to their lovemaking, the book presents examples from the author's rich and diverse sex life as well as from many of the people who see her for therapy. 30 line drawings.
