Reviews for The Art of Sensual Massage Book and DVD Set: 40th Anniversary Edition:


December 20, 2009

What a beautiful presentation. The descriptions are both musical to read and easy to follow. The images were the perfect demonstration of each movement and body position. I feel that the warm, loving intent behind sensual massage was eloquently articulated in this book and DVD. I also enjoyed the various quotations and excerpts included in the book. Being my first sensual massage book, I was, and continue to be pleasantly surprised at the world of pleasure that is literally at our fingertips.
Thank you.

The Art of Sensual Massage
The DVD is much better than the book. However the black and white photographs in the book are artistic and professional. The techniques described are relaxing and sensual, NOT sexual. Some books say sensual in their titles but are really sexual in nature.

My copy of this book has a copyright date of 1972, and the black and white photos of naked people sensually touching each other are about what I expect from that era. The book has a lot of good information, even a section on "Draining the Colon." I suggest not trying that one with the next person you bring home from the bar.

Outstanding set.
This is an outstanding set. The book in easy to follow with great pictures. The dvd gives great detail on technique. The only thing missing is a subject. You'll need to supply your own.

Not what I was expecting
I purchased this book as a birthday gift for my boyfriend. He has never given massages before so thought this might be a fun romantic way to get him more involved.

I did not like this book at all. All the pictures are black and white and of the 1960's 1970's hairy hippy error. Not cool for today's generation. Not really a beginner book either. Too much text not enough pictures explaining text. It is highly recommended that the next update of this book be color photos of a more recent generation. Nothing more disgusting than trying to look at pictures of long hair hippy people with cats. Yes.... cats.

I have not read any of the text yet because I can't get past the horrible photos! We have not had a chance to watch the DVD yet. I am hoping the DVD is better.

A Magnificent Piece of Work
I have just finished reading "The Art of Sensual Massage" for the third time. I've also been most successful using the methods described in the book. I would like to thank the author for his outstanding gift to the literary world.

The book was written in plain English, making it easy for any reader to understand. The photographs are truly beautiful and were done in the very best of taste.

Knowing how much work must have gone into this book I would merely like to thank the author for a job very well done. I work in a very large nursing home and am in close contact with nursing and therapy staff. They both agree that the methods in the book are medically founded and feel that our patients would benefit from the massage. Due to the advanced age of the patients I doubt their reactions will be sensual but I'm sure they will enjoy the massage anyway.

It makes us all feel good when we can bring such good feelings into people's lives.

I had no Idea it was from the '60's or 70's
The cover may look contemporary, but the material is old, from a different era. I felt mislead with the time wasted at the beginning covering material unrelated directly to the how to reason I bought it.

To me, this was a bad purchase in that I felt misled. Had I known what was on it, I would not have purchased it.

I really did not like this product. The video did not teach to the level of my expectations; especially considering the title. The actors were not the best and the quality seems to be like an old 70's video. I would it rather be more educational and exciting. I would not recommend it to buy

The art of sensual massage
The book gives detailled information about different techniques .However the print quality could be better and I would prefer color pictures .

The ultimate guide book for massage
Art of Sensual Massage is a classic. Every couple should have this book in their collection. The photos are beautiful and intimate. It opens up a whole world of relaxation. Really glad to have a copy of the dvd too, seeing the techniques in action makes learning much easier.

March 16, 2019

Should return.
Not that great.

December 11, 2018

Great learning book for couples!

The best..

Probably quite racy in it's day but a bit dated today
I'm sure when this book and DVD first came out they were probably quite daring - there is quite a lot of nudity after all - but now it looks dated and the massage instructions don't really tell you anything you couldn't learn elsewhere. I suppose the main message (which is that massage should be pleasurable not painful) is a good one, but probably not a great revelation to anyone in the 21st century. The music is also dated and somewhat annoying. There's nothing wrong with the book or DVD and as a historical record, it's quite interesting, but an updated version would be more helpful if you are trying to learn the art of massage.

ok not what I was looking for

Great for boning up on couples massages, but needs a serious update to bring it into this century
Boy, they weren't kidding. 40th anniversary edition. It is definitely 40 plus years old. The couples depicted in the book are clearly from the late 70's early 80's. Grooming standards in both men and women have changed in that time so this book should really be updated to for today's styles. Other than that, the book is pretty comprehensive. The DVD...well, I haven't watched it yet but I'm guessing its probably the same as the book, old styles, outdated techniques, laughable grooming standards. Note to publisher....Update Update Update

Big disappointment
It was not very romantic at all. It was tastefully done but it is only interesting if you wish to get into the massage business.

January 28, 2016

The book is better than the dvd
The book was more helpful than the dvd. My husband and I watched the dvd and didn't find it very helpful or sensual. As others have mentioned it is quite outdated, but that isn't the main problem with the dvd. If the dvd were outdated but had important concepts, techniques and basic helpful information that could transcend dates, it would not matter. The music in the background even put my husband to sleep before he could get much out of it. If you have to buy one, the book is better. I thought the dvd would be better because being visual it's easier to watch someone else and learn than it is to read a book and learn. But this dvd breaks that rule. There are others that might be better than this one. The dvd "A Journey into Sensual Massage" is a step up from this dvd. I have yet to find what I am looking for. Because there is a big difference between sensual and sexual. My husband and I were looking for tips on sensual massage but not interested in graphic sexual content that borderlines on pornography either. I would give this only one star if only reviewing the dvd but I am adding a star because the book does actually have some helpful tips. It is a good reference book. Yes, the photos might be outdated as well, but I think the content is such that one can overlook that. I don't regret buying the book, but the dvd was a waste.

January 21, 2014

an old video will turn you off! It is very simple and not worth the $30 odd dollars being requested....not AT ALL! I fortunately purchased from Amazon used...and paid under $10 bucks...and that is its worth. So 3 stars, cause its just okay... but I definitely learned something.

September 21, 2012

Haha, this book.
I bought this years ago. This book is more for ideas? That's the best way I can put it. It's not an actual massage style, more of suggestive rub down methods for the bedroom sorta thing.. You get what I'm sayin? Not a bad or great book but yea.

December 16, 2009

Don't bother with the DVD
The DVD was filmed in the 70's, and it shows, both in the appearance of the "actors" and the low quality of the film and lighting. The book was okay; and makes for a good conversation starter if you leave it in view on your bookshelf.

December 20, 2018

Get creative group activity gift
A great gift for a serious relationship, it got a good laugh at of friends around the Christmas tree, and open some insightful conversation. The DVD bonus makes it somthing that my gf and I can engage and share together. So far the material is straightforward, enfficising the effectiveness of each muscle group and the dynamic between your partner and you as te massager. Nothing is to hard and just takes slow careing work, id recommend for any age couple 21+
