Size Matters - erotic book by Three Rivers Press - review by Kayla

Size Does Matter!

"Size Matters" is an amazingly educational and laid-back book. It contains so much information about the male anatomy that I feel like it honestly should be required reading for all adults. It's a great book.
Great information, laidback format, pretty discreet cover, new information
I couldn't remember it all!
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review
"Size Matters" is a book published by Three Rivers Press that basically explains everything about the male anatomy. It's written towards a female reader. The tagline of the book says "The Hard Facts About Male Sexuality that Every Woman Should Know" - that basically does sum up the entire book. The book is written by both Kara Baskin and Harry Fisch. The book is a softcover book with black and white pages on the inside. There are a couple illustrations inside this book but not many. This book has 200 pages which are split into ten different chapters of information. It took me about two hours to read.

You know, I normally just read through books for the purposes of reviewing. After all, I normally know most of the information in most anal sex/BDSM/g-spot, etc. books. There's only so many books about the same topic you can read before it's rehashing. I was extremely impressed with this book though. I seriously wanted to start taking notes. There is so much information in this book that I have never heard about nor ever read. That was amazing. My brain was extremely happy. For example, did you know that the world "testicles" comes from the Latin word "testes" which means "truth"? That in ancient times people used to have to "testify" by grabbing onto their testicles? Yeah, how awesome is that?

The book is set up in a really neat manner. Since the book is written towards a female reader, this means that all of the questions are addressed as they'd portain to a female. This doesn't make the information any less useful, though, and guys will enjoy reading this too if they are curious about their own anatomy. This book is set up as a questions and answers type of book. Kara Baskin writes an introduction to the chapter then just asks questions to Harry Fisch who answers them with his medical knowledge. The back-and-forth dynamic of the book makes this an amazing pleasure to read. It never seems to get old; it just ends up feeling like you're listening to a conversation between two people.

The book covers a lot of different topics. It's one of the reasons I love it so much. In fact, when it comes to non-fiction books, this is probably one of my favorites. It just provides so much information that I've never read about. If it has to do with a penis, the information is in here including things you probably didn't want to know like the longest erection, how much ejaculate a whale has (did you know they actually have a bone in their penis?), and the longest penis. It also includes information you rarely see elsewhere like how to do a testicle exam.

The book's chapters make it really easy to search and find the information you are curious about. The chapters are: The Penis, How Sex Drive Works, Nut Cases, Masturbation, Coming to Terms with Semen, The Ins and Outs of Intercourse, The Delicate Sciences of Contraception and Birth Control, Erectile Dysfunction and Other Bedroom Problems, Sexually Transmitted Infections, and Men and Hygiene. Each chapter follows the Q&A format.

If you are interested in anything about the male body, check this book out. Honestly, I think it should be required reading for all females. The amount of stuff in this book I didn't know was just amazing. It was a fun read, it was an educational read, and it works as a great resource book for the things I don't remember on the first read-through. I'm highly impressed by this book, and if you have any interest in male anatomy, I recommend you try reading it.
Follow-up commentary
I still enjoy this book. I wish that publishers would come out with other male-health-orientated books aside from this one (considering there are so many female-only ones), and I think this one could probably use a slight bit of changes, but I really did enjoy reading the book, and I thought it had a lot of fantastic information.

    IN biblical times to 'Testify' meant standing in front of the person you were talking about while THEY grabbed onto your testicles! As a guy you either didn't want to testify often or you wanted to be sure you were telling the truth!

    This sounds fascinating, thanks!

    Airen - that sounds like it would be difficult to ensure that the witness was truly impartial...

  • tina&me
    Thanks for the review! The fact that I would probably hate this book has nothing to do with what you said!

    Tidbits like the one about the balls would sure be interesting – if it were, ya know, TRUE. Which it is - no matter what The Bible might say - NOT. Makes one wonder if the rest of this book is equally credible and accurate...
