Nancy Friday talks about the “Men in Love”

An extraordinary, explicitly masculine journey, “Men In Love” develops a startlingly honest portrayal of what it means to be a man in contemporary America. Here are the unexpurgated dreams, fantasies and fetishes that excite and obsess men today. In creating this historic study, Nancy Friday listened - without disapproval, apology or censorship - to the candid responses of thousands of men aged fourteen through sixty. She gave them a legitimate arena where they could share their "secret gardens" - the hidden and forbidden but nonetheless real and true. Much more than a litany of erotica, this unique volume doesn't tell us how men should love. It tells us how men do love - a stunning insight into the desires that dwell within men's psyches... and their hearts. The content of this book is more graphic than Nancy Friday's other books. Some of the fantasies are extremely graphic and some might say rather unusual. In other words, you are going to read about some unusual practices and kinks. On the other hand, it captures the nature of the male's fascination for highly visual, genitally stimulating and sometimes extreme sexual practices. If you are looking for erotica written by males, this is a good place to start. What I like most about the book is the psychological interpretations of various men's fantasies. While I don't necessarily agree with Nancy Friday's line of thought some of the time, her interpretations are creative and in most cases plausible. Her narrative is certainly thought provoking and you will like the fact she brought sexual fantasy out of the realm of shame and guilt. A great book that explains the psychology of sexual fantasy is YOUR EROTIC MIND by Jack Morin. You may find this a very useful read if you are trying to understand your own or other people's fantasies in an in-depth way. The language is crude, and the scenarios are at times a little disturbing to say the least. If you believe that sex is dirty, or should remain in the confines of the bedroom with a loving partner, this book will probably disgust you. If you aren’t at ease with graphic sexual detail this book will probably shock you. Even the most broadminded of people will question the content. So, what is “Men in Love”? It’s a massive 531 page book of men's sexual fantasies. Categorised into 21 fantasy headings, the book consists mainly of contributions collected by Nancy Friday after a request in one of her works “Forbidden Flowers”. She made no specification of the requirements, just that she was compiling a book of men's sexual fantasies. She received over 3000 letters of which she read and analysed (with the help of psychoanalyst Richard Robertiello), and admits that she did at times think she had opened a Pandora’s Box that perhaps she couldn’t handle. Her reason in persisting was to allow herself to be at ease with and perhaps more importantly no longer intimidated by men's sexual fantasies by analysing and relating them to underlying fears of losing face by showing love in the open way that women do.
