I'm reading this book, The Lover by Robin Schone and I can't say I'm liking it. First of all, the sex happened so fast and they talked so damn much (paragraphs of conversation) while they were doing it, that I didn't feel they were really feeling it. Then, there was the business of his having a Manaconda (they just kept mentioning those 9 and one half inches!) and her being a virgin, and he talked and talked about how he was an expert that brings every woman to orgasm every time but he barely engaged in any foreplay before going to play! I mean, c'mon! Yes, the writer mentioned how the woman was so excited, blah, blah, blah but don't tell me a woman is going to happily enjoy her first time with a guy that has a 9 1/2 inch penis with barely any foreplay!! I kept cringing, thinking how much that must have hurt.

And then they spend the night together and it turns out he brought her to orgasm 8 times (he was thinking about it the day after, it wasn't described it while it was hapenning.) So maybe she did, but I don't know how much sex a woman can handle on her first time with a man that size.

I have to say that I liked the book.   However, I take anything/everything that I read with a big grain of salt and always try to remind myself that is called  F I C T I O N  for a reason.   :-)

I just received this book in the mail and from what you are describing, I probably am not going to like it either. 

I guess I should try it before I repost it, but I usually don't like these kinds of books.

The three Schone books I've read all had Manacondas. It seems to come up a lot. No pun intended.

I have to agree about the sex scenes... But I did like the book. The plot was different enough to keep me interested. I went on to read Gabriel's Woman and it was like a continuation of the same story. I wouldn't rush out to buy all her books though.

he brought her to orgasm 8 times

 

well, he doesn't have to use the Manaconda to do that every time... so I guess it's within the realm of possibility... there's plenty of, uhm, non-invasive ways to bring it about.

Naw, you're right, it's totally fiction for sure.  My one encounter in real life with, uh, something similar scared the beejeezus out of me (at first) and did not inspire the kind of lust (at first) that writers describe. But maybe that's just me.

I lLOVED it.  And BTW I think the talking was part of the foreplay.  I just loved the Michael character.  Gabriel's Woman is even better (but lots more disturbing). 

hmmm never met one that big, but I'm intrigued.  

 

Interestingly, a male freind of mine just told me a woman broke up with him because she's looking for "a man with a smaller penis."  He says he's always considered himself average-sized, but she said he was "enormous."  But then, she was 5'2".  I asked, "did you laugh--sounds like an excuse to me."  He said he did laugh.  Didn't think there was any such thing as a "too big" penis.

Oh my God! I read Gabriel's Woman (years ago) and remember I didn't like the end (although I don't remember much of the plot and just know there was something about a house he was building.)

I know he didn't have to use the Manaconda to bring her to orgasm every time, it just seemed incredible to me that she got off even once so I couldn't believe 8 was possible.

If the talking wasn't so technical, it would have seemed part of the foreplay to me. All this business of "How deep are you going to penetrate me?" Or I'll do this, then I'll do that and you'll have an orgasm etc. seemed just boasting because he hadn't actually proven he could do anything. IMHO, a hero knows his job in bed when I can feel the excitement. If I cannot, then he's no good. As it was, I was screaming (in my head you understand, as I read in the subway): Stop talking and start doing it!!!

I can only say this to your friend: uhh, no I can't actually bring myself to say it. Except ask him to imagine it.

Has anyone read The Godfather by Mario Puzo? There's a whole bit in there (that is only slightly referred to in the movie) about Sonny and his Manaconda, and the woman (not his wife) who has an issue that requires size to matter and the bigger the better as far as she's concerned. I'm not sure I've ever read any other book that treats this issue this way. Maybe only a man would think of it.

 

IMHO, a hero knows his job in bed when I can feel the excitement. If I cannot, then he's no good.

 

I am so in agreement with you there. Except I would have to say it isn't him that isn't good, it's his author. Maybe he should find a new one. Author that is. (however, talking can do it for me.)

I had one lover that was of porn star proportions once and frankly it hurt.  DH isn't going to star in any porno's but he's big enough and can certainly get me off at least once just about every time.  Usually when he can't it's because I'm too distracted or something. 

I don't like a lot of talking during the sex scenes either. I mean some is expected but when they have a conversation-no.  Do the sex scene and then have them have a conversation later.  I just read one recently and the heroine was like she hates talking during sex and the hero kept talking.  So she's like, in her mind, "oh god, he won't shut up" and I think she finally tells me to stop talking or she won't get off.  She's like the only  words necessary are "harder, faster,  more and ooh right there don't stop".  That was Sex Lies and Online Dating by Rachel Gibson.

9 and a half inches??? Hell, send him to my house with Viagra or other drug that causes an erection to last more than 4 hours.

I'm not sure of the origin but I picked up on the idea - see, an anaconda is a really big long snake, and if you add an M at the beginning, there's this whole double meaning thing happening with the word "man" and "big long snake". Maybe some author actually uses this word, I dunno. It's pretty descriptive though.

yeah, send him to me too..I can use half and save the rest for later...

well, that's part of the problem - no way to just use half. Hope all your dreams come true.

And be careful what you wish for... (heh heh)

Oh.My.God! Ellen, that's hysterical.

I don't know who coined the phrase, but I read about it first in the AAR site.

Yes, the AAR site coined the term.

As for the original topic, legend has it that author Victor Hugo did his wife 8 or 9 timeson his wedding night. I doubt she orgasmed 8 times. The difference between reality and fiction.

To paraphrase Johnny Cochran - "if it dont fit, you shouldnt commit."

True story: I know a couple who divorced a few yrs ago.  They were both nice people and the reason was very sad. They hadn't tested things out so to speak before the wedding and the bride got a surprise on her wedding nite, not a pleasant one. It was always painful for her no matter what they did. They saw marriage counselors and sex therapists but nothing worked. So, they had to end it between them.

That's soo sad.

Anyway, now that we're talking about inches, I'll share one of my favorite Mae West quips.

Mae West asks a young actor

MW: How tall are you without your horse?

YA: Six foot, seven inches.

MW: Never mind the six feet. Let's talk about the seven inches!

Just reread it and it says he gave her 8 orgasms.  Doesn't mean they had intercourse 8 times.
