Mars and Venus in the Bedroom provides both men and women with specific instructions on how their new relationship skills can be used to improve their sex lives. Written with the understanding and unique insight that can come only from John Gray, it shows couples how they can become sexually satisfied without frustrating their partners, be better lovers, keep their monogamous relationship passionate, communicate their sexual needs romantically and get more pleasure out of sex.
Yes, men are still from Mars and women are from Venus, and vive la difference. With John Gray's guidance, these two celestial bodies can harness their differences to come into closer orbit with each other and enjoy some close encounters of the most heavenly kind.

Without a lot of Mars and Venus talk, John presents information about the way men and women view sex, that are helpful to dispel common areas of misunderstanding. I am not a big fan of lumping all women and men together into two groups and making generalizations, but some of the insights were new and very helpful. This is a presentation that everyone would love to know their partner had listened to, as it increases one's motivation to be more understanding and proficient. Basic techniques were discussed in a non-salacious fashion.
We listened to this book on a weekend retreat. I has increased or love and understanding of each other. My husband loved it because I no longer feel pressure in sex. And I loved it because now he takes out the trash with out me asking him to.
This book isn't well written or narrated since it was read by the author. However, the basis for good communication is having a common vocabulary to use as you discuss topics and this book does that.
Sexual fulfillment is a hard topic to discuss since we as a society don't grow up talking about how to sexually fulfill the opposite sex. Typically we get negative or bad information from movies, books, magazines, etc. This book takes a general view of innate needs for men and women to be sexually fulfilled.
The concept/vocabulary of using food, i.e. fast food sex (quickies), comfort food sex, and gourmet food sex, is a great way to discuss w/your partner needs, wants, desires to ultimately understand how to sexually fulfill each other.
Its a quick listen, and if you and your partner listen together, I would almost guarantee you will have conversations like you have not had prior to listening to the book.
Gray basis his writing on feedback on thousands of men and women, and although his ideas do not apply to every couple, they do provide a good foundation for lovers to understand each other.
