There are many sex manuals on the shelves of bookstores. They offer advice on being sexier, on giving him what he really wants, on making her wild with desire. Most of them are about as substantive as a filmy piece of lingerie. What is missing is a down-to-earth, realistic, honest book. Betty Dodson, Ph.D., is an international authority on sexual self-help and the author of the multimillion-copy best seller Sex for One: The Joy of Self-Loving. She has devoted three decades of her life to sexual liberation for both women and men.
In Orgasms for Two: The Joy of Partnersex, Dr. Dodson debunks the myths that keep us from having satisfying - and mutually satisfying - sex lives. She shows us how to be happier and healthier through the benefits of pleasure, and she shows us how to get to know ourselves and our partners better, whether it’s the inner and outer workings of the anatomy or the best sex toys to bring to bed. She writes often from her own experiences, because she feels people learn best through example, and she writes from the knowledge acquired through years of working with women and men, teaching workshops, and doing research. The knowledge gained through reading Orgasms for Two is like having a kindly, remarkably frank guide tell you all the things you’ve always wanted to know but never had anyone to ask. Listen to Orgasms for Two and see how rewarding it is to cast aside conventional beliefs about sexuality and begin to enjoy the best sex of your life.
"Everyone has a right to keep his or her sex life private. The reason I’m willing to go public with mine is because it has been proven to me time and again that the most effective way to teach something as subjective as sexual pleasure is by using the power of example. Since the '70s, I have shared my challenges and successes in the process of exploring sexual pleasure. What is happening to me in terms of my sexuality is not an isolated incident taking place in a vacuum. The chances are good that many other people are dealing with similar issues."
I love this book!! If I could give it 10 stars I would. I have recommended this to a lot of my friends. I feel like Im already an open person and this really helped me when I didnt know I needed it.

I was looking for a book that might improve marital relations with my husband by helping me deal with my inhibitions. What I found was a book that told me that, because I'm a monogamous heterosexual person, I'm part of the problem of why so many women don't have orgasms. Thank you - that doesn't help. The reader was good, but due to the message, I couldn't get very far into the book and really should have previewed it before buying. I did listen long enough that, if the author was going to float a balancing argument, where a marriage like mine is a good thing, I should have heard a hint of it. I don't need a book like this - what I need is a book that celebrates traditional marriage & can give advice as to how a husband and wife can really steam up those bedroom windows - together.

Betty Dodson followed up her seminal "Sex for One" with the kind, but frank "Orgasms for Two":
“There are many sex manuals on the shelves of bookstores. They offer advice on being sexier, on giving him what he really wants, on making her wild with desire.
Most of them are about as substantive as a filmy piece of lingerie. What is missing is a down-to-earth, realistic, honest book.”
Orgasms for Two speaks to the core of sexuality today, and tackles difficult, hot issues, and slams politically-correct topics. I doubt you’ll think or have sex the same way again after listening to this book.
