Not since The Joy of Sex has a book exploded sexual myths and attacked the status quo in the way Are We Having Fun Yet? does. So many women are dissatisfied with their sexual relationships - even all these years after the "sexual revolution". But what is it that women really want? Authors Marcia and Lisa Douglass answer this ever-present question in their groundbreaking book, revealing for the first time how women really like their sex, and what men can do to satisfy their female partners more fully than ever before. By explaining how women's sexuality is influenced by societal forces (such as the images of women portrayed in the media and of what a female body is "supposed" to look like in America), they explain why it has been so difficult for women to come into their erotic own. They show how we fall into sexual patterns that are taken for granted, and how men and women can reverse those patterns for more and better quality pleasure. They discuss how language - in particular how we talk about or censor discussions about sex - affects our everyday practices, in ways many readers will have never realized. Are We Having Fun Yet? provides a detailed explanation of the female anatomy, with new discoveries about little-known areas for stimulation. A complete discussion of how to achieve the utmost in orgasmic pleasure is also included. Finally, the authors show how women can begin a true sexual revolution by talking openly about sex and by demanding sex on their own terms. Are We Having Fun Yet? will help women take control of their sexuality in ways that will change not only how they relate to their bodies, but how they live in the world.
