The New Male Sexuality addresses the most urgent questions of men todayand of the women who love them. Bernie Zilbergeld reports findings from his twenty years as a psychologist specializing in human sexuality, as well as those other experts in the field, and shares his own and his clients' experiences. the result is the most comprehensive guide ever to enhancing desire and arousal, focusing on pleasure rather than performance, and keeping sex exciting and fulfilling.
Clear, comprehensive, witty, and refreshingly realistic, The New Male Sexuality is destined to be a classic of the nineties and beyond.
California psychologist Zilbergeld is likely to raise hackles with his gripe that love has become feminized (``Now men are expected to show love the way women do, by sharing feelings and talking in a personal way''). Nevertheless, this sequel to Male Sexuality (1978), packed with solid information and sensible advice, serves as a helpful antidote to boring, unfulfilling or dysfunctional sex. Zilbergeld contrasts our culture's ``fantasy model of sex,'' which dictates that men be able to function and enjoy without considering their actual needs for relating and sharing. Chapters on boys' growing awareness of sex, keeping the spark alive in relationships, sexual arousal, sex among singles and what fathers should tell their sons help provide a well-rounded picture of the emotional components of male sexuality.
