Now That You've Got Me Here, What Are We Going to Do?

Open Road Media

The seminal sex guide for non-wedded bliss from the author of Married Men Make the Best Lovers and Marriage Is a Bad Habit.

Having made a success and a series of cogent points about the complexities of Mistress-hood in her first book, Married Men Make the Best Lovers, Ruth Dickson gets down to basics and tells us a lot more than the obvious about the ins and outs of lovemaking.

With her classic, breezy, entertaining style, she instructs the uninformed and enlightens the already educated with a bit of science and a lot of blunt truth about the hows, whys and special tricks of sex for fun, in or out of wedlock. The fact that she firmly believes that unwed sex-play is more fun than the married variety doesn’t detract from her wisdom and her expertise. From “The Nitty Gritty” (both his and hers) to “The Other Side of the Bed” and from the beginning explanation of “Why Are We Doing This?” to the grand summation of “What Is Sex, Really?” Dickson gives an advanced course in the art of love and the pleasures of sex in all its permutations.

One of the first of many sexual instruction guides that followed in its wake, Now That You’ve Got Me Here, What Are We Going to Do? was the frontrunner of the genre, dispensing basic information and much more in this amusing, highly readable work. Readers of either sex will be the richer and the better informed for taking an opportunity to learn at the feet (and other areas) of a Master. Or, more accurately, Mistress.

About the author

Ruth Dickson was a bestselling lightning rod for controversy and a reliable source of entertainingly contrarian opinions about marriage, love, sex, adultery, and how much any of these subjects had in common when she burst onto the publishing scene in the late 1960s. Among Dickson’s titles are Married Men Make the Best Lovers, a survival manual for mistresses; Marriage Is a Bad Habit, an impassioned argument for unwedded bliss; and Now That You’ve Got Me Here, What Are We Going to Do?, which has been referred to as a “non-marriage manual.”
 She long ago lost count, but Dickson has lived in more than two hundred places on three continents but now calls Florida her (possibly temporary) home. Still going strong well into her eighties, Dickson recently published a new book, Life, Death, and Other Trivia: Outrageous Observations of a Wicked Old Broad, which includes many extracts from her blog.

Just in case you were born yesterday, Dickson is here to tell you that Sex in the City did not start with Carrie Bradshaw. Ruth Dickson was a writing and popularity rival for Helen Gurley Brown in Brown’s heyday, right after the publication of Sex and the Single Girl. Current readers, given the perspective of time, will be best equipped to judge, which of the two was the better, smarter, and wittier writer.

If you’re going to adopt a philosophy to live by, make it one that gets your heart pumping and unleashes your spirit of adventure!

Married Men Make the Best Lovers is a classic, smart, and sassy advice book from the 1960s, the heyday of the sexual revolution. As one of the most outspoken leaders of the movement, Ruth Dickson unleashes a wicked mind, a razor-edged wit, and the freewheeling attitude that made her one of the most popular writers of the day.

After years of personal research, she offers pointed advice on becoming a happy and successful Other Woman, covering everything from the selection, capture, and care of a married lover to his ultimate release. She leaves no stone unturned, discussing every aspect of the affair, up to and including the problematic Wife. Wrapping things up with an informative Q&A, Married Men Make the Best Lovers is a must-read for any woman who treasures both her single status and the enjoyment of a rich, fulfilling sex life. And for those ladies (and gentlemen) who seek further enrichment, Dickson went on to author the definitive non-marriage manual, Now That You’ve Got Me Here, What Are We Going to Do?

Sexier than Helen Gurley Brown, wittier than Xaviera Hollander, Ruth Dickson tells the truth, makes you laugh, gives you innovative ideas and thoughtful advice on how to navigate the tricky waters of true freedom of choice. Other Woman status may not be for everybody but it’s difficult to disregard Dickson's cleverly persuasive argument in defense of this provocative lifestyle.
"The Way of the Superior Man is quite wonderful. Finally, a guide for the noncastrated male. This book will offend and infuriate some, inspire and test others, but challenge virtually everybody. I found it wise, insightful, occasionally brilliant, and always resourceful. To transcend the body-mind means to transcend and include its sexuality, not transcend and evaporate it. Few are the books that discuss strong sexuality within strong spirituality, instead of tepid sexuality diluted by a mediocre spiritual stance. This book steps straightforwardly into the challenge. Love it or loathe it, it is a shout from the heart of one perspective of the eternal masculine."
—Ken Wilber, author of Sex, Ecology, Spirituality; No Boundary; and Grace and Grit

"At last! A book that explains the heart and soul of a woman to men. As a woman, I've never felt so understood and validated. This book is a key to helping men and women take their relationships one step further. Finally, a clear and brilliant guide to unraveling the mystery of relationships."
—Marci Shimoff, co-author of the New York Times #1 bestseller Chicken Soup for the Woman's Soul

"The Way of the Superior Man lays out a challenge before all men to fulfill their true purpose and to be authentically masculine. It will guide you on your journey to a successful and spiritually complete way of life. I invite you to live in the moment, to love openly, and to step up to the plate with this book in your hand."
—Tony Robbins, author of Awaken the Giant Within and Unlimited Power

What is your true purpose in life? What do women really want? What makes a good lover? If you're a man reading this, you've undoubtedly asked yourself these questions—but you may not have had much luck answering them. Until now.
In The Way of the Superior Man, David Deida explores the most important issues in men's lives—from career and family to women and intimacy to love and spirituality and relationships—to offer a practical guidebook for living a masculine life of integrity, authenticity, and freedom. Join this bestselling author and internationally renowned expert on sexual spirituality for straightforward advice, empowering skills, body practices, and more to help you realize a life of fulfillment, immediately and without compromise.
"It is time to evolve beyond the macho jerk ideal, all spine and no heart," writes David Deida. "It is also time to evolve beyond the sensitive and caring wimp ideal, all heart and no spine." The Way of the Superior Man presents the ultimate challenge—and reward—for today's man: to discoverthe 'unity of heart and spine' through the full expression of consciousness and love in the infinite openness of the present moment.

This book is a guide for a specific kind of newly evolving man.  This man is unabashedly masculine-- he is purposeful, confident, and directed, living his chosen way of life with deep integrity and humor-- and he is sensitive, spontaneous, and spiritually alive, with a heart-commitment to discovering and living his deepest truth.
This newly evolving man is not a scared bully, posturing like some King Kong in charge of the universe.  Nor is he a new age wimp, are spineless, smiley, and starry-eyed.  He has embraced both his inner masculine and feminine, and he no longer holds onto either of them.  He doesn't need to be right all the time, nor does he need to always be safe, cooperative, and sharing, like an androgynous Mr. Nice Guy.  He simply lives from his deepest core, fearlessly living his gifts, feeling through the fleeting moment into the openness of existence, totally committed to magnifying love.
