Bruce Jay Friedman has been described as a “comic genius” (P. J. O’Rourke) “an American original” (Kirkus) and as having “a voice that is equidistant from those of Wilde, Salinger, and Woody Allen” (Publishers Weekly).
In Sexual Pensées, he casts a baleful and knowing eye on the “sexual dance”: the way men and women think and feel about sex, how they behave – nobly and disreputably – in and out of bed. The book reveals the deepest feelings of a young woman in Manhattan, a young man, a Hollywood starlet, a film producer – and icons ranging from Flaubert to Mario Puzo. A blend of poetry, haiku, and erotic memoir, it is a book about sex unlike any other, and will appeal to men and women who look upon sex not just as a solemn enterprise, but also as sheer and often outrageous fun.

Our customer reviews

A really marvelous book by a great American writer. Friedman collects these observations, memories, and one-liners regarding relationships and sex. In turns it\'s hilarious, poignant, melancholy, hilarious. Great stuff! A quick read that you will want to read again and again. Some really sexy illustrations, too!show more
