Thirty percent of all men suffer from premature ejaculation and another ten percent from erectile dysfunction. These statistics do not include men who experience too little or too much sexual desire, gender confusion disorders, sexual shyness, or inhibition.

Most women are not aware of the profound effect difficulties in functioning sexually have on a man's sense of self-worth.

Review quote

Practical, informed, balanced, and accessible. I highly recommend this to anyone dealing with a sexual problem. -- Warren Farrell, Ph.D., author of The Myth of Male Power and Why Men Are the Way They Are This is a book of information, inspiration, and solutions for those struggling with sexual problems. It will find its place on reference shelves of American households. -- Judith Seifer, Ph.D., R.N., president, American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists With this comprehensive, yet down-to-earth guide, Eva Margolies contributes to understanding male sexual dysfunction and the alternative for relieving it. She defines her text as in 'someways ... a how-to book' but 'also a how-not-to book' and delivers on both counts with personal and therapeutic observations. Problems with erections, premature ejaculation, low desire, and fetishes are discussed with lucidity, practical intelligence, rich anecdote, and empathy. An enlightening work for troubled couples-particularly for the woman-as well as the healers to whom they may eventually turn. -- Avodah K. Offit M.D., author of Night Thoughts: Reflections of a Sex Therapist and The Sexual Selfshow more
