Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is only outdated BECAUSE it was among the first in its class to explore the concept that a woman is allowed and supposed to gain pleasure from sex and deliver that idea to the public. In that regard it is an amazing piece of sexual education literature. The revised edition was released in the early 80s, but I believe it was written much earlier than that. It was written during a time when women (and men) were much less informed about the female anatomy, and there are numerous accounts in this book of women being embarassed by their orgasms because they were misunderstood. I believe that this book is helpful not only to the women of the time it was written but to women today. I read this book knowing full well what a G Spot was and what it did but I still found the history of it to be quite fascinating. In reading this book I not only came to more fully understand my own body and how it works but also what I can do to help it work more efficently and to my best sexual advantage. This book changed my sex life in an amazing way and for that I will always be grateful.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Despite folk "wisdom" to the contrary, the "g-spot" does indeed exist, and this book identifies it.
There is an area of tissue near the skenes glands which has special nerve endings and tissue, and when pressed upon will eventually cause a contraction of the nearby muscles in a "pushing" style which can be combined with other sexual stimulation to cause a uniquely intense orgasm.
The medical explanation for this area is that the baby's head presses upon it during the birthing process, bringing on the final round of pushing/contractions to complete the birth.
This book is good, but the best technique book on Amazon for using the g-spot for sexual recreation is "ESO: Extended Sexual Orgasm"

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was a boring weak monograph on a subject that needs new coverage. Instead of covering Fokorg's or Hammil's new theories and suggestions on stimulating the G-spot and explosive orgasm, this book brought me back to the 60s asking does a G-spot exist? and gave the reader endless detail to prove that it does. As a Gynecologist, I have been taught and I have taught that a G-spot exists for nearly 30 years. As a woman I was bored endlessly by a book that offered little to no new information on the G-spot and no information on stimulating the G-spot. Do not buy.
Regardless, I praise Amazon.com for advocating freedom of expression even if it may involve bad reviews of books they sell.

The belief that the G-spot does not exist is just as dogmatic as the insistance that it does! I suppose if the book gets people to talk and explore, it is almost worth the money, but every woman needs to find out about her own body, by herself and with her partner, and not try to live up the to expectations portrayed in this book - like the myth that G-spot stimulation will inevitably lead to a female ejaculation. Forget the super-sex pressures of sex books like this and just explore.

This book is responsible for misinforming a whole generation about what the female orgasm consists of and how to achieve it. In fact, most women know (and most doctors agree) that there's no such thing as the "G" spot; the female orgasm is far more diffuse and subtle. But I give the book a "5" anyway because, if you have a partner who thinks that the "G" spot exists, you both can have one heck of a lot of fun trying to find it!
