The Great Sex Secret
fter years of study, Marshall was struck by what a significant gap there is in sex literature and the popular media. His book addresses what he sees as the dearth of information about how both partners achieve an orgasm. Studies show that 85 percent of women say they do not have an orgasm during actual intercourse. Marshall addresses why this is physically, and suggests different approaches to making sex more satisfying for both partners. Interestingly, throughout Marshall's book, he touches on the history of sex and how different generations have dealt with questions. He also discusses common myths and societal taboos and how they impact both men and women.
he Great Sex Secret
is laid out in nine basic chapters that are easily readable. Marshall's tone is a mix of gentle humor and warm, simple advice designed to spare the reader embarrassment on a topic many people are uncomfortable discussing. Sprinkled through the book are excerpts in which both men and women offer up their voices on certain topics. Marshall also relies on sexual studies to underline key points. In the end Marshall's book is an open and honest discussion offering a pathway to greater mutual sexual happiness.
