A step-by-step introduction to Marabel Morgan territory: wearing pearls and pearls alone to bed, building a better mousetrap with vaginal contraction and pelvic tilt exercises. Of course, there is an audience for this sort of thing: it suggests to the timid ways of being aggressive without being ""unfeminine."" Indicate your interest by looking a man directly in the eye (but if you then ""zero in on the crotch, that's going too far""); use old clichÃ‰ opening lines humorously, etc. Penney overrules the consensus that women need be movie-star perfect to attract men in bed: sexiness, we are assured, depends more on a woman's comfortableness with her own body, her sexy feeling about herself. This is very much concerned with candles and other scene-setters; the pleasures of massage (one woman even hired a private masseur to give her lover a surprise massage in bed before their lovemaking); and, somewhat more clinically, squeeze techniques to stave off premature ejaculation. Some of the advice is more juvenile: ""If you feel his penis is medium to smallish, it's best not to comment 'Oh, how big!' because he'll pick up your insincerity."" One more pursuit of ""the thundering orgasm.
