Product Description

From the Back Cover

"Chock-full of carefully researched information, interspersed with dozens of humorous 'word to the wise' real-life anecdotes, How to Have Sex in the Woods is a terrific source for those of us prone to wax romantic in the great outdoors. And a definite inspiration for the rest of us who have never given it much thought."         
--Eleanor Macklin, Ph.D., professor emeritus, Syracuse University, and certified sex therapist

As a reader from Upstate New York (where winters are very cold and where thoughts of "Sex In The Woods" keep us warm)I thoroughly enjoyed Ms. Colombo's entertaining book. The reader from Pacific NW really missed the point of the whole book. It's not to be read as a manual, but rather a light hearted (tongue-in-cheek) book that certainly offers good advice on a subject most of us are interested in, but also keeps you amused along the way. My thanks to the author for sharing some great ways to rev up a tired sex life!!!! We're off to the woods next weekend!

Although the author's bio stated she was NOT an expert sex counselor, she has obviously done this before! I read this book in preparation for a trip to the Canadian Rockies, where I hope to do a lot of hiking and have some fun! While some of the advice was commonsense, other items make you sit up, take notice and think things through a little longer than your hormones would. I also loved the recipes, just the thing to round out a great week in the outdoors. I'll definely recommend this to fellow camper/hikers/outdoors people!

I can't be quite sure what to make of receiving this book as a gift, not being much of a person to be roughing it in places where the sun don't shine. But a quick skim had me smiling. Imagine instructions to make out a hammock (delicately of course), to keep your sleeping bag dry, and some erogenous games to play in the "woods", even if that means your own backyard. Guess it makes for a pretty fun gift for "back to nature" friends and as such it's a good laugh. Don't expect to end up becoming Fabio.

I picked up this book as a gag gift, and it served its purpose well. As an actual resource, though, it's pretty weak. The author (an expert sex counselor) offers advice that ranges from the obvious to the silly: If you lay on the forest floor, watch out for sharp twigs; if you're on the beach, remember that the sand can sometimes be hot. As filler, she's included recipes for camping food to take along, including an avocado dip. Great title, but seems the author was stretching to come up with content.

I bought this book as the "perfect gift", and was thumbing through it before I gave it away. I couldn't put it down! (Darn book kept me up 'til 3 am!) You've got to read this book. Colombo's anecdotes were engaging, and hysterical. I honestly laughed until I cried! It's an informative, lighthearted approach to something that just doesn't happen "naturally", unless you read this book and plan accordingly!
