Statistical Breakdown of Findings by chapter. Questionnaire for Women Readers. We learn how they do it, how they hold their legs up for or gasm, what they think about, whether or not they make noise, move, lie still, what devices they use from electric toothbrushes to water spouts! We learn how they feel about intercourse, their anger at not reaching orgasm when their men do, their real pleasure in giving pleasure, their paradoxical tendency to suppress anger and their own feelings in an attempt to win love and approval.

In fact we learn many paradoxes about women from this book and one of the most moving realizations that emerges from it is the female tendency to tie the psyche into knots.

Women, whether they love men or women, seem to be painfully divided about their sexuality. Their own needs and society's expectations for them are in conflict. Often it takes them years to admit what they like sexually and years longer to ask for it.

The heritage of a patriarchy in which children were a man's wealth and ownership of women was the means of production has apparently left women confused about what role sex should play in life when society no longer needs them as baby machines. Most of the respondents to Rite's questionnaires thought that the sexual revolution was a myth, that it had left them free to say yes but not to say no , that the double standard was alive and well, that the quantity of sex had gone up, not the quality.

No wonder most of them grew up despising themselves. But it was also interesting to discover that despite the prevalence of sexual starvation or, at least, anemia , the women came across, as a whole, as a very romantic group. They are still longing for the one perfect love, still desiring constancy rather than promiscuity. Apparently none orf them was true. The more sex changes, the more it stays the same.
