About the Author:

Steve Bodansky, Ph.D. and Vera Bodansky, Ph.D., have been students and teachers of sensuality and relationships for a combined total of fifty years. They conduct workshops and demonstrations and have trained hundreds of men and women in the practice of extended massive orgasm. They have been married for nearly twenty years.

Steve: I am a behavioral scientist whose major interest is love, and how to give and receive pleasure. I grew up in New York City. I received a B.S. in Biology from S.U.N.Y. at Buffalo and my M.S. in Molecular Biology from S.U.N.Y. at Albany. I moved to California in 1979, and received an M.S. in Communications and a Ph.D. in Sensuality from More University. Vera and I met in 1979 and married in 1983. Our love keeps getting better both physically and spiritually. Vera has inspired me to write many poems.

Vera: I have lived many lives. To start, I was born in Europe and spent a year in a Nazi detention camp. I grew up in Salzburg and was tutored in Russian, German and English. In 1952 I moved to New York City and married an actor. In 1960 I moved to San Francisco and remarried an investment banker. We had two sets of twins, one year apart! I received my M.S. in Communications and my Ph.D. in Sensuality from More University, which involved demonstrating a three-hour orgasm for my professors. My relationship with Steve is the best of my life; it far surpasses my wildest dreams.

Review:


"A foundational premise of this book" according to husband and wife authors Steve and Vera Bodansky (Extended Massive Orgasm and The Illustrated Guide to the Extended Massive Orgasm) is "our belief that women are not equal to men." It's a gimmicky way of saying men and women approach sex differently; much of the book relies on such hooks, popular in the self-help oeuvre. To wit, each chapter title has something to do with a bed-"Under the Covers" and "Pillow Talk Plus" for example. And yet, the patient reader will be rewarded with some insightful observations about the cultural conditioning, desires and drives of the opposite sex. Topics include becoming a better seducer, giving without keeping score, deliberate versus default pleasure and the importance of integrity in bed. Based on information and ideas from a number of sources, but primarily through the authors' personal experiences and the experiences of people they know, the book is most successful when it veers away from the obvious ("Make eye contact when you are in conversation with a woman") and offers practical advice and tools for establishing-and reinvigorating- intimate contact. These exercises (19 total) combined with the authors' breezy, conversational approach (they use slang where appropriate) make this guide a notable addition to the genre. — Publisher's Weekly

"chapters cover a wide range of subjects for the heterosexual couple, including flirting, appreciation, responsibilities, G-Spot and so much more." — Come As You Are, March 2006

"their latest guide presents good advice about relationships, playing on male/female differences while keeping both sexes on planet Earth." — Library Journal (February 1, 2006)
