The good rating, rather than 5 stars, reflects the discomfort I experienced with the level of personal disclosure in this book, it felt awfully close to voyeurism. The author describes how "Raunch Culture", a culture of "...unbridled male fantasy has been co-opted by women in the name of feminism and sexual liberation...so it's hard to criticize it---because you're attacking what women have supposedly been striving for for decades". Sewell asks why low libido in women is considered a dysfunction rather than considering that men's sex drives may be too high. "Wouldn't it be wonderful if men were urged to fall in line with women's sex drive rather than vice versa?"
I won't give away how Sewell and her husband resolve their different appetites for sex except to repeat her conclusion: "When I was free to do what I wanted, my sexuality took me by surprise. It is not necessarily expressed in orgasms or a desire for physical stimulation. And I won't say that having the pressure off my sexual performance resulted in more lust or more orgasms. It hasn't." Finally, she writes, "I realize that my sexual preferences aren't exactly logical. Some of the reasons I have for not liking cunnilingus could also apply to fellatio, which I don't mind. But I want to show you that some of our sexual preferences and quirks don't make sense-and they don't have to. If I don't want to do a particular sex act, I don't do it. I needn't defend my choice."
