Publisher's Summary

Nancy Friday's taboo-shattering best seller My Secret Garden is the most popular and controversial book of women's sexual fantasies ever published. Women who feared their erotic fantasies called it scandalous. Women who recognized their own fantasies in its pages, rejoiced. Outspoken, graphic, vulnerable and shameless, My Secret Garden is a classic study of female sexuality. 

Friday interviewed hundreds of women from every part of the country to learn their sexual private thoughts, and she listened like no one else. Now in audio for the first time, a multi-cast group of top actors dramatize the real voices of women speaking freely like they never had before.

Someone please think of those poor dogs.

Very interesting read, after finishing the book "sex at dawn"

As a straight male reading this book definitely gave me a better understanding of female fantasies.

Some parts were hard to get through.

Great read! Even for men!

Mutually beneficial and exciting! Like many men, I have always been curious of what women fantasize about. Truly this book is a "tell all"! After reading it I think it's beneficial for men as well; though, I think it was more directed towards women. This book allowed me to be more open and accepting of my partner and her fantasies. And what's better than being able to fantasize together, me and her? If doors are closed, this book is the key!

Absolutely exquisite

This book is an excellent window to women sexual fantasies. It place women’s desires into perspective towards us, men, who are oblivious of what women want. Thank you Nancy Friday.

A book worth listening .. Eye opener

Amazing stories, fantastic settings, and mind-boggling fantasies,
I can say for sure that most men, don't ever listen to this kind of book. And you'll be a great advantage if you do.


What Doe's security seeking creatures want from their Sex life???

Adventure .. Intimacy. Secrecy, New and fresh romance. Mindful sex, and sharing a passion for each other.

Thanks Nancy..

es buen libro para conocer distintas fantasías

muestra muchas fantasías... muchas. no podemos generalizar que todas las mujeres tengan este tipo de fantasías y en algunas ocasiones esperaba algo más de análisis sobre ellas. Cómo etnografía, muy bien hecho.

Fascinating but appallingly read

Fascinating and important work, if rather outdated, but the various performers are interminably awful. Would still recommend but go in warned!

Great book

I can't believe the guys name is real. Phil McCracken. If you don't see the use or purpose of this book then it says a lot more about you.
