    I hope this thread doesn't die a quick death. I think it will say a lot about where you're coming from here.
    If it didn't influence your thinking, and if it didn't influence, that will say something too.

    I'll start:
    She Comes First: The Thinking Man's Guide to Pleasuring a Woman Kerner, Ian
    Kind of repetitive, but enlightening in ways, not everything is gospel, reinforced my thinking.

    There are others I have read, and will post later if there's any interest shown in this thread.:)

    You are now the unchallenged guru of SEX. Now I know why you get so wordy at times. Looks like a recommended reading list. looking-for-kinky-smilies-or-indecent-smilies-the.gif

    Me, wordy, looks whose talking? :)

    Maybe recommended - but the practical tests are still the best learning curves.

    Some of my list could almost be classed as 'tech manuals' :)

    They say "everything comes to he who waits" - but life has taught me that that is a 'load of bollocks' :)

    And what makes you think you've been around long enough to accept what you think you've learned? I think of the phrase as: "Good things come to he who waits".
    Either way, patience is a virtue, and you know how virtuous I am. smiley 45.gif

    I've got books that have influenced some of my kinks but not necessarily my thinking about sex as a whole.

    I've learnt whatever I've learnt up to this point and that's what my acceptance of life to-date is based on; I cannot base my acceptance of life on what might be (as my very personal experience has shown me.)
    Does that mean that bad things don't also come to he that wait?
    Some people's patience is other people's sitting on their arse waiting for fate to act.
    Of course I know how virtuous you are, how could you be anything else now you (seem to) have lost your virtuosity :)
