Synopsis

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.

Nancy Friday was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania on August 27, 1937. She has made a career of writing about women's issues. Her first book, My Secret Garden, published in 1973, created a stir with its frank discussion of women's sexual fantasies. This theme was continued in Forbidden Flowers. In My Mother/My Self, Friday turns to another issue, the relationship between mothers and daughters. She returns to the subject of sexual fantasies in Men In Love, only this time approaching it from a male perspective. In The Power of Beauty, Friday explores how women's lives are affected by their appearance in a culture that values beauty. Friday is also the author of Jealousy, and Women On Top. Friday attended Wellesley College and has worked as a newspaper reporter, magazine editor, and freelance writer. Her articles have been published in magazines such as Cosmopolitan, Forum, and Playboy.

A (you should excuse the expression) mate for My Secret Garden (1973): page after page of men's lusty fantasies, accompanied by Friday's agonized soul-stirrings.
