The title glibly answers the question, "Why do women fake orgasm?" But Dugan suggests foreplay is much more than what a man does before intercourse. What begins as a simple attempt to "figure women out" quickly shifts into a deeply considered exploration of the male psyche and the influences that shape a man's character.
The result is a highly entertaining look at men's experiences with trust, responsibility, sex, intimacy, commitment, feelings, masculinity, street-corner sex education, role models, break ups, bubble baths, dating, fantasizing, diamond buying, lying, blaming, shaming, crying, dancing, and, especially, their relationships with women.
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 to be happy. It was never about finding the right woman. It was about becoming the right man."
