Today, in the midst of the sexual revolution, millions of people are robbing themselves of complete sexual fulfillment. Their greatest desire -often hidden even from themsleves- is for variety: variety in sexual experience, in sexual partners, and in types of sexual acts. Most people never fulfill this desire, held back by fear, timidity and the conventions of monogamy. John and Mimi Lobell have achieved it.

Their books tells everything: their former sexual conventionality, what changed their living patterns, what their new life has meant to them. They speak in loving detail of their encounters with friends, together or separately. Often their new lovers reacted first in astonishment and disbelief, only to find themselves gaining similar fulfillment by broadening their sexual horizons, increasing their capacity for love. The effcet of all this is joyful and liberating. John and Mimi, in showing how sexual openness can result in fuller and richer lives, have givent he world a stirring and important book.
