Men in love : men's sexual fantasies : the triumph of love over rage by Nancy Friday( Book )

55 editions published between 1980 and 2007 in 12 languages and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An explicitly masculine journey, Men in Love develops a startlingly honest portrayal of what it means to be a man in contemporary America. Here are the unexpurgated dreams, fantasies, and fetishes that excite and obsess men today. In creating this historic study, Nancy Friday listened--without disapproval, apology, or censorship--to the candid responses of thousands of men aged fourteen through sixty. She gave them a legitimate arena where they could share their "secret gardens"--The hidden and forbidden but nonetheless real and true. Much more than a litany of erotica, this unique volume doesn't tell us how men should love. It tells us how men do love--an insight into the desires that dwell within men's psyches--and their hearts.--From publisher description
