Book Review

Penis Power. As you read that phrase in your head, you may be laughing to yourself. The very word “penis” can make people shudder or giggle to themselves. However, erectile dysfunction, premature ejaculation, prostate issues, etc. affect men, both young and old, everyday and it’s no laughing matter. The mystery and the reluctance to talk about the penis is one of the reasons Dr. Dudley Danoff wrote the book, The Ultimate Guide to Male Sexual Health: How to Stay Vital at Any Age. The goal of the book was to start a straight forward dialogue about the penis and what is normal and what is not. Dr. Danoff addresses such topics as erectile dysfunction in a very approachable manner that is easy for the everyday person to understand.

 

This book is good for other professionals in the sexuality, mental health or medical field wanting to learn more about male sexual health and the self-esteem issues that can surround male sexuality.

 

What I found fascinating about this book was that it focused on the psychology of the penis and how that itself can affect the functioning. To quote the book on how “penis power” is defined: “The concept of penis power means 'achieving maximaum enjoyment and satisfaction for both you and your partner, as determined by your own standards, desires, and tastes.'” Though, Dr. Danoff does talk about the medical causes of male sexual dysfunction and medical interventions, he doesn't use a medical based model to talk about male sexuality.
