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.

About the author (1980)

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.
