Présentation de l'éditeur

A reproduction of the classic text, unavailable now for more than a decade, with a new introduction by the author. The Hite Report, first published in 1976, was a sexual revolution in six hundred pages. To answer sensitive questions dealing with the most intimate details of women's sexuality, Hite's innovation was simple: she asked women, a lot of them, everything--and published the results.
One hundred thousand women, ages fourteen to seventy-eight, were asked what they do and don't like about sex; how orgasm really feels, with and without intercourse; how it feels not to have an orgasm during sex; the importance of clitoral stimulation and masturbation; and to name the greatest pleasures and frustrations of their sexual lives, among many other questions.
The Hite Report declares that orgasm is easy and strong for women, given the right stimulation; that most women have orgasm most easily during masturbation or clitoral stimulation by hand; that sex as we define it is a cultural institution, not a biological one; and that attitudes must change to include the stimulation women desire.

Book Description

Featuring a new foreword by the author, this is the classic feminist analysis of sex that galvanized a cultural revolution. Originally published in 1976, The Hite Report revealed the most intimate sexual feelings of 3,000 women: what they like and don't like; how orgasm really feels, with and without intercourse; how it feels to not have an orgasm during sex; the importance of clitoral stimulation and masturbation; and the greatest pleasures and frustrations of their sexual lives. The most shocking revelation was that orgasm is simply and easily achieved with the right stimulation, and that sex is a cultural institution - not just a biological one. Hite explains in her introduction that while society has in theory made great strides with regard to female sexuality since the book's first edition, the dissatisfactions with their sex lives some women voice today are reminiscent of the issues raised in the 1970s..

HASH(0x8a2eb3cc) étoiles sur 5 glad to have read this as an adolescent boy 25 avril 2005
Par another reader - Publié sur
Format: Broché
"The Hite Report" (on female sexuality) is a seminal and indispensible text. It is by turn shocking, inspiring, disturbing, titillating, and sometimes boring, but always informative. What you get is practically PURE information, but of a sort rarely found elsewhere -- if sex weren't sex, the report would be a bone-dry academic snoozefest. Along with a bit of methodology and comment, the book's content is simply collected testimonies of American womens' subjective experiences of their sexuality. The reader is left to draw his or her own conclusions. As a study it assumes no strong thesis (unlike some of Hite's later work), therefore as a critic one can't say much more about it. That said, although the good people at Amazon insist we reviewers focus on the "product," I have something to add about my experience of the "product" that may be of more interest.

Back in the late 70's, my mother, in uncharacteristic daring and playfulness, shelved an early edition of the "The Hite Report" next to her cookbooks on the kitchen bookshelf and left it there. Years later, around the age of 13, her son (me) noticed this book was not like the other ones. Needless to say, after reading just a bit standing there in the kitchen, the son absconded with it to his room and read the whole thing. And reread. Many times. It was years before it got replaced next to "Larouse Gastronomique. " To this day, it lives there, and I've never asked Mom if she ever noticed its leave of absence.

My primary purpose at the time was titillation, but underneath my arousal was a sense of wonder and curiousity. Feminine sexuality was demystified for me even as my awe grew. Looking back, I see how I formed the basis of a deeply respectful understanding of the power of ALL sexuality. I accepted how taboos, shame, etc. might form around sex, but that sex in and of itself was not just neutral, but beautiful and precious. I authentically experienced what many (I believe) can only offer as a platitude or abstraction.

I could go on about what good I think "The Hite Report" did for me, but more important to me now is that it helped me become both a good lover and a good friend. As a young adult, having been taught to think I was "just a guy," I was repeatedly surprised to find myself being more insightful, accepting and compassionate about the twists and turns of many of my female companion's sexuality than they, their girlfriends, their mothers, or even their therapists could be. I don't say this to brag, but as a heartfelt testimonial to the educational and maturational value of having read this book during the right formative years. I was fortunate. In fact, I paused to write this review while shopping for a copy for a friend whom I wish could have read it 15 years ago.

Everybody, regardless of gender or background, should be availed of "The Hite Report" at the apporpriate age by the approriate person (and perhaps the report on male sexuality too). The only drawback to this report is its age; while it is incorrect to call it outdated, mores and customs do change, and a study like this should be repeated at least once a generation.

HASH(0x8a2eb420) étoiles sur 5 World Media Opinion 1 septembre 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Poche
This book has received praise from media and institutions all over the world. For example, Reuters has remarked that it 'has left an indelible mark on Western civilization.' Others, including the prestigious Frankfurter Allgemeine, have called it 'legendary'. The London Times has listed it as one of the top one hundred key books of the twentieth century. It received the distinguished service award from America's largest organization of sex researchers and counselors, AASECT (American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists).
Why? Because it was the first and still in many ways is the only book to 'make the case' for the beauty and pleasure of clitoral stimulation for female orgasm. It galvanized and helped create a cultural revolution, documenting in women's own voices and with statistics (based on its own independent sample of over 3,000 women of all ages and walks of life) that almost all women can orgasm easily and efficiently with clitoral or exterior stimulation of the vulva -- and going on to question why this is not considered a 'normal part of sex'? Why is there no word for this, i.e., why is this 'act' never shown in films or pornography (where the focus is almost always on coitus, bondage or fellatio)? Yes, this is a feminist analysis of 'sex', stating (it was the first to do so) that our definition of sex is a cultural and historical phenomenon, not simply a 'biological inevitability.'
Read this book if you want to understand anything about female sexuality.

HASH(0x8a2eb5f4) étoiles sur 5 Should be a mandatory read for ALL hetrosexual men! ;-) 6 avril 2005
Par Melissa Ann Hutcheson - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I read this book when it first came out in 1976. I was 13 at the time, and boy oh boy did it make a big impression on me. I am so glad I had this book at a young age, so that, growing up, I knew from the get go that I was a normal, healthy girl. This is an amazingly informative book. I have to say that I disagree with the above reviewer in that I do not believe the book and its graphic content were there for simply "shock value", but were actual feelings, of actual women, from all over the United States. The fact that it was so graphic is perhaps an eye opener, but all the contents are presented in a fashion that makes it obvious that this is a serious work and not some sort of sleaze. All heterosexual males should read this book, because there is not a better reference of information regarding womens sexuality to be found. Highly recommended.

HASH(0x8a2ebc24) étoiles sur 5 Interesting and Revealing 8 mai 2008
Par K.A.Goldberg - Publié sur
Format: Poche
I read this book in the early 1980's and found it quite interesting and revealing. The thousands of women that responded to Hite's anonymous questionnaires seemed willing to open up, and both men and women can learn from what they had to say. Hite's finding that only 30 percent of women climax during intercourse should encourage couples to communicate. She also mixes long responses with one-phrase answers, and the result is often revealing and occasionally tiltillating. Critics say that Hite lacked a perfect scientific sample, but one suspects her respondents were more honest than those who participate in face-to-face interviews (Kinsey, etc.). Perhaps most of all this book seems to confirm the emotional and physical appeal of the subject.

This book was based on questionnaires answered in the pre-safe sex, pre-cyber porn 1970's, but seem quite relevant today. Ms. Hite left the USA for Germany in the 1990's, apparently due to attacks on her and her work. This is an imperfect book, but worth a look.

HASH(0x8a2ebc48) étoiles sur 5 No, it *wasn't* bad science -- it was groundbreaking; but we know that now. 3 décembre 2012
Par M. R. Traska - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This was groundbreaking when it first came out, and justifiably so because it spoke the truth about many women's experience of sex. NO, it wasn't bad science -- it simply wasn't a random sample but rather a self-selected sample of respondents who still had something very important to say. More to the point, Hite's conclusions were verified by many later studies. She merely said what is today obvious to sex researchers and to the rest of us: that clitoral orgasm is both natural and normal, that clitoral stimulation is necessary for many women to orgasm, and that women orgasm very easily that way. In comparison, intercourse is unreliable on that point.

Indeed, a sizeable percentage of women simply can't and don't orgasm solely from intercourse. They're just built that way by nature, and there are far too many of them to consider this an aberration rather than just a normal physical variation, like the color of one's eyes. There's a very good reason most women love to be on the receiving end of oral sex: when properly done, IT WORKS to produce orgasm, as does self-stimulation, and both of those work much better and more reliably than intercourse. Hite was nearly alone among researchers saying it at the time, however, and some of those other sex researchers felt threatened (they *should* have felt threatened, given that they had unthinkingly dismissed clitoral orgasm as unimportant). To simply write her off because her sample size and selection weren't random and double-blind now seems just silly, considering the accuracy of the point she was making. And what those 3,000 women had to say is still of value: to dismiss them is to dismiss the truth of their individual experience. Intercourse is NOT all there is to sex, and for many women, intercourse isn't even the point of sex or a requirement *for* sex. But we know that now. What's remarkable is that despite knowing it, that still doesn't translate often enough into better sex for more people; a lot of men still have trouble believing that all that humping and pumping just won't do it for many of us gals -- they seem to think it only takes the 'right man' to make it work. Think again, guys: it just ain't so.

I'm happy this book came out when it did, because it made me realize I wasn't alone and neither were many of my female friends. It turns out we were just as normal as other women, our disdain for the ineffectiveness of intercourse not withstanding. Hooray for Hite! I'm glad she published when she did ... and if you're a woman, you should be, too. Five stars.
