This study is a book about men who love women, exploring the secret, erotic fantasies that men have always kept hidden. It is a taboo-shattering investigation which explains to women as well as to men the deepest, most conflicting feelings that men have about women, men and their own sexuality. Based on thousands of candid responses from men ranging in age from 14 through their 60s, this book goes beyond the cliche of the women seen as either madonna or whore to reveal the conflict of love and rage at the centre of men's emotions. By the author of "My Secret Garden", "My Mother Myself", "Jealousy" and "Women on Top".
