“Fantastic book for men. Period. If your father never sat you down and taught you how to responsible and respectful with your sexuality, both mentally and physically, then this is a great book for you. It's a great read for those who want to conquer desires that can ruin a marriage and life if left unchecked.”Kenny Elliott wrote this review Monday, December 5, 2011.

“Very interesting to read and understand the male psych on this topic. I got this with my ex boyfriend at the time from the North Western Publishing House after he had cheated on me. He also just had other issues in that department, though being a christian, like any human being, he still struggled with his sins and tempations so we both read it. Him first than I. He explained that it was very accurate towards the way HE felt. However it didn't make me feel much better about what happened but it made me appreciate that God has made us so differently. We each have our own struggles but this was one i had and still have trouble understanding! It was great to read through and more than once! Kind of scary to know though too!”Brittany Wagner wrote this review Saturday, April 16, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Probably most married women should read this.
Somewhat shocking if you have not paid attention to all the research the last 20 years of how men and women differ especially in regards to viewing the male/female body, sexual needs and desires, and basic chemistry.
Very candid descriptions of the sexual drive that men have. Also the battle of the average male between purity and lust, fidelity and sin.
The reason I think MARRIED women should read this - is people have a tedency to assume that their spouse is somewhat like them. Women characteristically get busy and think if they aren't thinking about sex, that their husbands aren't either - and frankly it probably doesn't even get to that stage in the thought process. There are seasons where women are so focused on kids or themselves that they aren't thinking about the needs of the other person.
It becomes evident in this book that God wired men to think about sex and needs a connection on some level in the sexual realm frequently and it would benefit the marriage and the wife if she keyed in on this. Not to mention it would obviously make the husbands thirilled!”
Ok, I thought this book would be a let's-get-in-there-and-kick-butt type of book. Something like: "You own your dick!" & "Let's demolish the myths on self control!" Something that would just clear up the fog of entitlement some men have towards infidelity and devious sexual behaviours. Nope. my mistake. I should have read the description. Even though the book wasn't what I expected, I gave it a chance. Honestly, I think it fails to give you insight on anything. It is merely a jumpy telling of the author's personal experience told from his religous viewpoint, with hardly any advice or help. Except some obvious things that if you are not doing, it is simply because you don't want to. Whether you read this book or not, there's no such a thing as " I'm a man. I can't control myself." So, for the love of God be honest with yourself and do nto use that excuse.”
“The narrative jumps around a bit, but it's worth the read. Doesn't have any startling revelations (to me, anyway) on how to keep your eyes from wandering around.”Rob Matherly wrote this review Sunday, May 9, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“While this book raises up some key issues of male sexuality, it only does so on a surface level. It never really breaches into the heart of the matter, and only offers superficial helps to men struggling with sexual issues or sexual addictions. ”Nathan James Norman wrote this review Wednesday, April 28, 2010.
