How to fulfill a stereotype..

A disappointing, dated read. If you are ignorant of society's influence on your own female frigidness, this is the book for you. And if you already have a secret P.O. box for conversing with potential lovers, you are rapidly running out of other options.
Short, easy-to-read chapters
Deals in stereotypes, hetero-normative, geared mainly towards men who want to be with two women
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
The most accurate part about this book is the title -- threesomes are most people's favorite fantasy. Other than that, I found this book to be highly unhelpful.

The book consists of 26 rather short chapters, approximately 5-7 pages each. This makes it very easy to page through. The chapters cover topics such as "the bisexual woman", "making contact", and "setting the mood"; also chapters covering highly stereotypical types of "women who seek a threesome," and a chapter on "threesomes for him."

The first thing I noticed is how dated the book is. This is immediately obvious within the first five of the 26 total chapters. The author suggests possible techniques to discover a covert threesome partner, including a "secret pager," an anonymous P.O. box with an address you can give out to prospective suitors, or a coded personal ad. Of course I can easily translate these into "alternative email address" and such; I was just expecting a book on "how to have a threesome" to be a bit more resourceful than this.

The biggest problem I have with this book is how much it talks about "society" and how it has programmed men and women differently in terms of "hardware" and "software." I am not saying that society does not influence gender roles; of course it does. However, the author does not see much flexibility in said roles and mostly portrays women as sexually repressed, jealous, and competitive. There is an entire chapter on "types" of women who are interested in threesomes, including the "situational lesbian," the "vengeful woman" and the "deprived woman." I personally find these categories offensive.

Another thing that bothers me is how hetero-normative this book is. While there is mention of MMF threesomes (briefly), the focus is on the men competing for the woman's attention and showing off for her, as in a circus act, and no mention of the men possibly wanting to be with each other as well. This book is meant to fulfill the desires of a man who wishes to see two women together, above all. In fact, the only mention of homosexuality is in the context of men renouncing their former homophobia in order to persuade their wives that it is ok to be with another woman.

One good point of this book is the fact that it does stress that to desire a threesome is normal and that it is the most common fantasy out there (which it probably is).

Overall, I cannot say that I learned anything new from this book, which is disappointing. Perhaps I already knew more about obtaining a threesome than I thought I did; perhaps this book would be more suited for someone who is only just beginning to discover their desires for one and are beginning from scratch.
