They were four seductive women . . . each with secret, sensual dreams and desires. And when Sam Ennis came to town, they promptly lined up in a race for his attentions. Maude Simmons, awake in her new full-blown beauty and restless nights, thought she knew what Sam planned to do. Her only question was, which woman would he select? Marge wanted Sam’s kisses to kill the taste of her love-empty bedtime sessions with her relator husband, Harold. Cindy, Marge’s man-hungry sister-in-law, had to see for herself if Sam was the great lover Marge claimed him to be. Anna Winston, luscious call-girl brought to town by Marge’s husband for reasons of his own, gladly made the fourth girl in the love line-up. Always ready to mix business with pleasure, she knew that a man like Sam could give her both!
Jack had women, too many women. That was the trouble. When sultry Verve used her body to get him to find her kid sister, Lois, it was the start of Jack’s woman trouble. Because Lois had cut out for Harbortown, a little weekend village on the Massachusetts coast that had been taken over by wild kids. Mad teenagers who took their kicks any way they could get it! Jack had his hands full, not only with sultry Lois, but with passionate Terry who wanted to share his motel room, and with the nameless Latin girl on the dunes. It was a mad weekend of sin!
ONE HOT DAY…Jim Minter brought home a casual friend who wanted a girl—any girl. Many girls came…some were married, others were not. That was how the weekend party began. Jim’s girl, Rena, thought she might become pregnant from the occasion. Ben Thomas’ girl, Wanda, made sure she would not—no matter what she did. Lovely Lana Kustro sub-situated herself for another girl in the strange bed of the man she wanted. Paul Antionette’s wife, Alice, joined the party to trade husbands with Cynthia Vallen and did so—emerging from behind a locked door well loved but looking like an accident victim…

Show me ONE person who doesn’t want to have an amazing and breathtaking sex life! Not that everybody considers sex to be the most important factor in life, but when we do engage in sexual activities we want to experience the stuff that rocks our world and leaves us lying in bed spent and happy with a silly grin on our faces. I know I do. But, how do we go about it? Well, as far as I have understood the majority go out to buy some new spicy underwear, a sex toy or two, watch porn together or something to that effect. In many cases that might help to put some zing back into the relationship for a short while, but the effect doesn’t last and instead of rushing back to the store for some more supplies they need to turn back inwards, towards their relationship. The media feeds us with a zillion different outfits, looks, toys and porn-inspired scenarios to make us believe that’s what’s missing. They couldn’t be more wrong because the most important factor to a fulfilling and awe-inspiring sex life is….wait for it: INTIMACY. Read that again. Intimacy. Some say you can read this word as: In-to-me-see. And that’s just it. When you relate to someone intimately, you know them deep down, you can read their eyes and gestures for an update on the mood right now, you know their dreams, innermost needs and wishes, there is absolutely no end to the possibilities and dimensions that you can experience together. This doesn’t mean that every sexual encounter need be an earth moving experience; sometimes it’s ok with the wham-bam-variety. Why doesn’t intimacy sell? Well, it takes time. There is no quick-fix and we live in an age where instant gratification is key. On the other hand many also recognize that these quick-fixes leave us with a feeling of emptiness. Porn shows us a warped version of “reality” by presenting always-ready-to-go-solutions where all the participants at all times are a hundred percent focused on sex and nothing else. Newflash! Nobody in the real world lives or functions like that. If they’re emotionally healthy that is. If you want to settle for porn, that’s your choice, but be aware that you are settling for something that can never be anything but a cheap and sadly lacking copy of the real thing. You have this extraordinary possibility of really living, right here, right now, don’t sell yourself short. So, instead of spending precious time on running around trying to find the aphrodisiac that is missing in a sex shop or on the internet, spend time together with your partner, as well as with yourself, make an effort to get to know each other better, listen attentively, tell each other about vulnerabilities, needs, sorrows, joys and dreams. In fact use every waking moment together to find out something more about your partner, look at it as an adventure, a treasure to be excavated, lovingly. The book “The Horny Heart?” is an outspoken, inspirational, easy-going but still serious reminder that we need to make conscious choices in order to have the fantastic and enriching experiences we all dream of.
Nobody wants to talk about them, but there are events that occur in our lives that become deep dark secrets we hold inside. And they dramatically influence who we are and how we experience the world.
Such is the case for seventeen year-old Nicky Young who was raised by an alcoholic father and disengaged mother. While Nicky tries to make her way into the world she is confronted by the demons of her dysfunctional and sometimes violent upbringing.
As a young child, Nicky witnesses her older sister having her head slammed into a bowl of creamed corn by her father and then yanks his belt from the loops of his pants and begins to relentlessly beat her sister. It is experiences like this that ravage her self-esteem and make trusting men next to impossible…until at 17, Nicky meets Ryan Tilton, a high profile professional baseball player eight years her senior, who expresses an interest in her.
While she is interested in Ryan, Nicky questions his ulterior motive for wanting to be with an inexperienced girl. Is this man a scoundrel or does he genuinely care about her? Nicky is torn between protecting her vulnerable heart and wanting to trust Ryan and develop a relationship. Ryan brings his own demons to the party – losing his father at the age of fourteen, his early fame and a sexual partner from his past who will not leave him alone.
Will their young, uncertain love be enough to help them open their hearts and experience intimacy they both crave so deeply or is Nicky and Ryan on a collision course for failure?
Loosely based on the author's life growing up in San Francisco, this inspired work of fiction deals with the disturbing secrets siblings share, the dance between love and protecting one’s heart, and the innate desire to connect with another even when it means risking everything.
