    When Dr. Brandy Engler opened her sex therapy practice for women in Manhattan, she got a big surprise. Most of the calls were from men. They wanted to talk about womanizing, porn addiction, impotence, prostitutes - and most of all, love.

    Any additional comments?

    While the author does go into the sexual behaviors and practices of her patients, it isn't excessively voyeuristic. Fundamentally, the book is about how a person's experiences as a child, teenager, and young adult can affect someone to such a degree that they can lead subconsciously to undesirable behavior. The author also provides a fairly rational hypothesis as to why those subconscious "wounds" are frequently manifested sexually in men.

    This is not one of those "all men are dogs" books, and I felt sympathy for some of the patients -- but not all of them. The book gave me a look at men's sexuality from a different angle.
