Being French: A Frenchman's Guide to a More Sensual Life

Why is it that so many books portray for American people French insights and ways concerning love and sex? Is there any truth to the stereotypical view of the French and sensual matters? The purpose of François Roland’s book, Being French, is not only to share the ways in which French people are, in fact, more balanced when it comes to their sensual lives, but also to bring some of this easiness and a better prospect for happiness to his American readers. Flirtation, seduction, love vs. sex, keeping sex alive within a marriage, the beauty of real bodies, how to enlist all the senses in sex  ... the special French take on these matters and many others fill the pages of this book that some early readers have called “life changing.” Find it on Amazon.com and excerpts of his book here.
