The Man Who Made Love to More Women Than Casanova

And the Apocalyptic Aphrodisiac
Email this review


A tell-all interview with a man who says he’s made love to hundreds of women.

Sitting with his longtime friend G in a New York City hotel, debut author Baccala asks questions based on G’s claim to have slept with hundreds of women in his lifetime. From pickup strategies to sexual techniques, what has G learned from his vast trove of experience? Beginning with G’s concept of what is “sexy”—“when a woman’s body stimulates my hormones to a level where I’m solely driven to penetrate her and have a happy moment”—the book goes on to explore everything from the finer components of oral sex (“Take my word for it, muff-diving requires a hell of a lot of know-how”) to the inherent differences among Asian women: “Let me start by saying that there is an impression out there that all Oriental or Asian women are more or less the same in looks and nature. Nothing could be further from the truth.” Interspersed with G’s memories of the women who’ve helped him increase his number of sexual partners, the book reads as a limited biography of sorts. Though not much is revealed about the man behind the figures, a portrait is painted of a series of consensual flings, occasional prostitutes and a man with a keen sense of whether or not a woman is willing to sleep with him. Full of reflections unclouded by political correctness or incredulity (for all of G’s successful one-night stands, there seem to be plenty that didn’t pan out), G’s anecdotes have an honest feel. What the stories gain in candor, however, they tend to lack in depth. As readers get past G’s bawdy feelings on Hispanic women—“They are vigorous and energetic in the sexual act”—they’ll probably see little to differentiate G from all the other Don Juans of the world.

A quick, lighthearted skip through one man’s sexual conquests.
