What a great book! The theme is all about how to get the best sex you can, whatever your age from your teens to your fifties and sixties! The writers don't just concentrate on techniques and position, important though these are: they talk about intimacy and love too....a great interplay of mind and body for great sex. This book is one of those I would describe as a "must have" - forget the mass of "How To Get Better Sex" type titles on the shelves of every retailer - cut straight to the chase, and get the one book every man really needs: this one! It has detailed info, great factual content, and a host of amazing tips and hints. As you will realize, I'm a fan - it's a manual on sex for men as good as any I've seen, and a lot better than most!

Books on sexual problems and impotence

Premature Ejaculation

For men with premature ejaculation, lovemaking can be a mixed blessing. Happily, premature ejaculation (which, as you may have guessed, is the most common sexual problem among men) is easy to cure. With the premature ejaculation treatment, namely one called Staying Power, premature ejaculation can be cured. The director of the Chicago Sexual Dysfunction Institute, the USA's biggest treatment center for male problems says the cure rate - with the right treatment for PE - approaches 100%.

Premature ejaculation is easy to identify: a man reaches orgasm too soon for him and his partner to get any (or complete) sexual satisfaction (for which read pleasure, orgasm or whatever). "If you and your wife agree you're too coming too soon, then you're a premature ejaculator," says Dr. Burman. Here's how to extend the delay before ejaculation and enjoy more satisfying lovemaking.

Practice having sex - it makes for better sex

"The easiest thing to do if you're a man who comes too soon is to have sex more often," says J. Francois Eid, M.D., of the Erectile Dysfunction Unit at Cornell Medical Center in New York City. "For one thing, premature ejaculation is more common when there's a long gap between sexual sessions. Also, you get better with practice. You learn more about your sexual body and your sexual limitations."

Try the "stop-start" approach.

This technique means you stimulate the penis almost to ejaculation, then stop; stimulate it again, then stop; and repeat this until you learn to control your all too quick ejaculations, says psychologist Bernie Zilbergeld, Ph.D., author of the excellent book, The New Male Sexuality.

Do Kegel exercises.

The pelvic muscle strengthening which women use to hold their urine after childbirth can assist men in delaying ejaculation, claims Dr. Zilbergeld. To perform Kegel exercises, contract your anus for one second as though you were trying to stop a bowel movement. Do this 15 times in sequence, working up to 75 contractions, twice a day. Kegels will strengthen your pelvic musculature so that you can contract or relax as you get near orgasm, supposedly delaying ejaculation. (But this technique is not foolproof - some men last longer when they are squeezing the muscles, and others last longer when relaxing them.)

Do your bodybuilding later.

Exercise is part of a healthy lifestyle which may reverse premature ejaculation, but don't exercise just before sex, says Dr. Burman. Why? Well, exercise directs blood to muscles. For instance, if you do bicep curls, blood will be directed to your arm muscles which means it's not going to your penis. Exercise some other time.

Reverse position.

"Men are most sexually aroused when they are on top during intercourse, so try having her on top," says Dr. Burman. "Then control her movement during sex by guiding her hips. Should you become too aroused, you can then easily guide her to slow her down or even stop her movements."

Diet for better sex.

Premature ejaculation may be caused partly by physical changes in the body. Men over age 30 may have problems with premature ejaculation because of inadequate blood supply in the penis, due to the arteries in the penis becoming occluded with fat and cholesterol, which means maintaining an erection is more difficult. And when this happens, the brain decides you'd better ejaculate before you lose your erection altogether, and so premature ejaculation develops, says Dr. Burman. Live a good, healthy lifestyle and maintain good arterial health by eating a low-fat, low-cholesterol diet, exercising regularly, not smoking and keeping your stress under control. Your potency will be safeguarded and prolonged, says Dr. Burman.

Books on male and female sexuality

Male Lust: Pleasure, Power, and Transformation 
edited by Kerwin Kay & others, published by Harrington Park Press

A provocative insightful and enlightening collection of essays about the experience of being a man - gay, straight, transgendered, whatever. This book explores the world of the male psyche and the relationship between men and their lustfulness, sexiness, and desire - things that form such a crucial part of our maleness. Perhaps there is an emphasis on the gay perspective, but the real value of the text lies in the elegance with which all the points of view are put forward. Within these pages there are poets, priests, prostitutes and philosophers; able bodied and disabled; fathers and sons; the pure and the  innocent; the historical and the contemporary; and the adult and the adolescent. But all of these accounts of maleness are related with insight and sensitivity. For any man who thinks the time has come to celebrate maleness, instead of regarding it as a burden, this book is an affirming, life-enhancing gift, as well as a work of great beauty in its own right. Your understanding of your maleness will be enhanced by reading it. Highly recommended.

As Nature Made Him
John Colapinto, published by Harper Collins, New York, and Quartet Books, London

This must be one of the most amazing stories in the history of human medicine. In the 1960's, two twin boys were taken for circumcision: the first had his penis cut off in a botched operation; the second boy was left alone after this mistake was made. The decision was taken to raise the unfortunate lad as a girl: a decision which followed the fashion at the time for assuming that sexual identity - whether you see yourself as a man or a woman - was socially determined. To this end his testicles were removed and he was socially conditioned to accept girlish pastimes.

The twin boy who formed the basis of this incredible human (or, as it turned out, inhuman) experience led a life which seems to have been one of sheer hell: there is almost no point at which he seems to have accepted, even remotely, the female identity thrust upon him by Dr John Money, one of the world's supposed experts in sexual identity at the time. And the story serves not only as an account of the boy's redemption - he is now married, and had been given testosterone therapy and a reconstructed penis to restore his male identity - but as a testimony to the attitudes of the medical profession, who, even when they began to doubt the absolute assurances from Dr Money that all was going well, seem to have abandoned the boy's welfare in the face of their own fear of gainsaying an expert. It is a truly unbelievable story, made all the more amazing by the fact that even as late as 1985 I read a book which still quoted this "experiment" as evidence that gender identity was socially determined. I doubt many people would extend much sympathy to that view now, even if they thought there was an element of social pressure in the way men and women behave.

If you are at all interested in the way men and women come to form their view of themselves, or if you are likely to be fascinated by one of the most amazing, tragic, uplifting and, ultimately, bizarre accounts of human experience you will ever read, then get this book. I read it in one sitting - a true "couldn't put it down" piece of writing.

Well, as a male who loves the female form, I don't know why women would have any doubt about the beauty of their genitals. I think it true that most men would honestly say they could never see enough of a woman's most intimate areas. Indeed, I wish I had seen more in my life! If you too feel that you would like to see more, this is a book with some very gorgeous close up (very close up!), detailed, tasteful photography of the vulva and clitoris.
