Reviews - What do customers think about Mars and Venus in the Bedroom: A Guide to Lasting Romance and Passion?
A Medical Concern Jun 3, 2008
This isn't a review of the book as a whole. Rather, I want to address a specific idea in this book, which many reviewers have brought up--the idea that even if a woman doesn't feel like having sex, she should be open to a "quicky." I am astonished that a well-known professional sex/relationship guru would offer this advice.
A woman should ALWAYS be aroused and ready before penetration occurs (which means, yes, foreplay is a necessity most of the time). For many women, penetration can be uncomfortable and even painful otherwise, even with lube. If a woman continually forces herself to have sex when she doesn't feel like it, she can develop a sexual dysfunction called vaginismus, in which the vagina reflexively clenches in anticipation of pain, making intercourse difficult or impossible. I'm concerned that women will read this book and attempt to follow this ill-informed piece of advice.
This information is available to any layperson who cares to do a bit of research. Dr. Gray is supposed to be a professional. So why does he know so little about women's bodies? All I can say is, I'd be very careful about accepting advice from someone who overlooks such an obvious concern.
Cant believe a doctor actually recommened this.... May 2, 2008
This book was actually recommended to me by my doctor! And after reading the reviews I decided I dont need a book that basically focuses EVEN MORE on the man and pretty much ignores women's needs! So, no thanks...I think I will find a book that is a little less male chauvinistic and a little more pro women's needs.
John Gray Should Not Be Giving Bedroom Advice Apr 28, 2008
In the words of my husband, "This guy [John Gray] has an agenda. You've got to feel bad for his wife."
After reading this book together, both my husband and I were very disappointed. My husband was really insulted that Gray made men out to be sex machines who require an orgasm in order to love and feel. I was upset that women were characterized as essentially sexless, needing our male counterparts to coax us into having intercourse. Even more annoying though, Gray devalues female orgasms almost completely, and at no time is it appropriate for a woman to decline sex. Of course women should make the attempt to pleasure their men (most will want to), but Gray has the idea that women should give it to their lovers anytime, anywhere. Seriously, I can picture Gray explaining that a woman in labor can just give her husband/boyfriend a quickie if he's feeling frisky and she's just not in the mood given that she's giving birth and all. On the other hand, according to Gray, it's hard for a man to say no to sex, so if he does, a woman should take care of things herself.
Gray's views on a loving sexual relationship were too one-sided and extreme for my husband and I. We really don't think Gray should be giving bedroom advice, nor does he seem qualified to be. (FYI: Google Gray's educational background. It's a joke. The school he received his PhD from no longer exists. Too bad I didn't realize this until we had already bought and read the book).
Memorable Sex Apr 1, 2008
If you have been married for over ten years you may not find very many new ideas from this book. However, even one or two unique ideas can infuse your relationship with new passion. "Mars and Venus in the Bedroom" is perfect for newlyweds or anyone who wants an exciting refresher course in sexuality.
John Gray takes a realistic approach to sex as opposed to a romantic fantasy. He gives lots of practical ideas to enhance the sexual experience. It is helpful to know that this book has been written for couples in a committed monogamous relationship. The ideas are guaranteed to ignite or keep passion alive in a long-term relationship.
This book addresses the emotional and physical needs of both partners. I felt like I agreed with most of the book. I did seem to question one item that stood out to me as important. John Gray explains how if a woman doesn't want sex then she should be open to a quickie. On the other side of the story, if a man doesn't want sex then it is "written in stone." A section is then dedicated to ways a woman can ignite passion by what she wears to bed. There are also some ideas on how to write erotic letters although the example is from the male perspective. A letter written by a woman would have been equally as interesting.
In the section on romance John Gray states that potted plants are not romantic. Personally I prefer them to cut flowers since they last longer. So some of the advice won't always work and you have to personalize the romantic experience. Unfortunately I must say that all the potted plants my husband received from girlfriends in the past have had an untimely end.
~The Rebecca Review
Very Highly recommended for committed couples Dec 13, 2007
John Gray is such a delightful man, with such a correct insight into the sexual and emotional makeups, and needs of both husbands and wives. When you think. . . "he won't cover that subject", the next thing you know, he is completely covering it. After listening to this, I felt excited and energized when I thought of how more meaningful my marriage, in or out of the bedroom might be. I will write another review after I share this with my husband. I am getting another copy for my daughter and my son-in-law. THANK YOU JOHN GRAY!!!
