A humorous look at men and relationships analyzes a man's psyche as it explores the diverse influences that shape one's character--including men's experiences with trust, commitment, masculinity, role models, cheating, and relationships with women. 20,000 first printing.

McMillan Palgrave

Expanding upon his solo comedy show-hailed by the San Francisco Bay Times as "a funny, incisive, one-man journey to enlightenment"- comedian Mike Dugan explores the obstacles to achieving romantic love and intimacy in our current culture of drive-by relationships and push-button porn. It's Man vs. his Sex Drive in a winner-take-all cage match

The title of the book answers the question, "Why do women fake orgasm?" But Mike Dugan asks us to consider that perhaps foreplay is much more than what a man does in the moments before intercourse. What begins as a simple attempt to "figure women out" quickly shifts into a humorous and insightful tour of a man's psyche as he considers the influences that shape a man's character.

In a book jammed with the kind of wry comic twists that have earned him an Emmy Award and appearances on the Tonight Show, Dugan takes an unflinching look at men's experiences with trust, responsibility, intimacy, commitment, masculinity, role models, shock jocks, cheating, street-corner sex education, and, especially, relationships with women. He reveals devastatingly accurate secrets about the male thought process that some men might be happier kept quiet-all punctuated with spot-on humor.

It's also quite likely you'll be taken by surprise more than once. Ultimately what Dugan discovers in this wise, witty, and thought-provoking book is that, "I didn't have to figure out women in order to be happy. It was never about finding the right woman. It was about becoming the right man."
