Men in Love

£9.99

This is a book about men who love women. But it is not a collection of love stories. It is a study of the secret, erotic fantasies that men have always kept hidden, a taboo-shattering investigation that reveals the deepest, most conflicting feelings that men have about women, men and their own sexuality. Men in Love goes beyond the socio-sexual cliche of woman seen as either madonna or whore to reveal the conflict of love and rage at the centre of men’s emotions and erotic desires. Based on thousands of candid responses from men ranging from their teens to their sixties, Men in Love – startling and shocking – will change men’s deepest feelings about their sexuality and make the women who care about them understand them as never before.
