Until one day, the sex got better. For years she had thought orgasm was an unattainable myth, but after a lifetime of boring, conventional sex with her husband, the 58 year old family doctor discovers an entirely new side to her personality. Tom has voyeuristic tendencies and he is excited by her detailed reports as she contacts, meets, and sexually explores a variety of men. Tom and Lucie in her guise as her alter ego, Adrienne, delight in uncovering this daring and unconventional new aspect to her character.

It is certainly erotica, but in a different form to that which I have ly read. It is an autobiography of a woman who suddenly releases a sexual side of herself which she never even knew was locked inside her.
Lucie is a family doctor from Prague. Her husband was a bit of a rotter. Her long-term lover, Tom, is a bit of a voyeur and is complicit, from afar, in her sexual adventures. She sets herself up for no-string-attached sex via an online dating s I enjoyed this book. She sets herself up for no-string-attached sex via an online dating site. Tom helps her to define her provocative profile, and even writes some of her correspondence with her online sex partners. She has some fantastic times, and describes them very explicitly.
She also gets into a bit of trouble from time to time, mainly when she ignores Tom's experienced advice. There seemed to be more sad times in Lucie's life than good times, but I think that is because, in this book, she held back on telling us about those wonderful parts of her life. There is quite a lot in the text to make you laugh. Lucie's writing style is, and I use the word again, different, but I find it difficult to say how. Perhaps it is the Czech spin on her English.
I don't know. But the little quirks make it attractive to read. Some of the descriptions of sexual acts are very arousing indeed, and fire up the imagination to very high temperatures. Other descriptions are a little clinical, but then, she IS a doctor! The only niggle that I had was her repetition of "my sexual revolution. I suppose that, to be fair, that's what this book is about. I did a count of the phrase, and it was only used eighteen times. In summary, this is a good debut I hope that Lucie will write some more. Maybe she should have a go at expanding just one of her sexual adventures into a full blown novel which is total fantasy.
If she does, I hope that she injects more of her wicked sense of humour. View all 13 comments. Jun 30, Karen rated it really liked it. I am giving this book a 4 for importance and courage. This story is an important one for women over you know the stereotype, after menopause, no interest in sex anymore, that type of thing. Well I can tell you as a 56 year old woman that is not true. But I know many who think it is, and sadly, they have reed to it.
These women, and all women over 50 should read this. Men can also find this book worth reading. It tells the story of "Adrienne", a divorced woman who decides with the help of I am giving this book a 4 for importance and courage. It tells the story of "Adrienne", a divorced woman who decides with the help of her special friend, her partner, to explore her sexuality and experiment with men she meets and screens online.
It is a deliberate process; ing back and forth, meeting for coffee or dinner first, to see if there is an attraction. The exchanges between Adrienne and her prospective sexual encounters were detailed, thoughtful and funny- I enjoyed reading them, but the writing started to really flow effortlessly when Lucie who is Adrienne to her men tells us about Tom, her partner, whom she loves.
Those parts I liked best. I did feel that Adrienne put herself in danger, and I had a slight problem with that. But her confidence and openness throughout this story is there, as is her vulnerability. Lucie is funny as she tells us in detail about her encounters, her bad driving, and just about her life and opinions of things. It took a great deal of courage to write a book like this, as it is explicit, which I liked! This is an honest memoir of a woman who was determined to change, with the help of Tom, a very very special person.
This is much more than a book about liberating sex though, it is also a love story that left me teary at the end. When you read this, put all judgment aside and just read it for what it is- a liberating memoir of a woman we can all learn from, after all, this author is a doctor! View all 4 comments. Jun 01, Czarny Pies rated it really liked it Shelves: english-lit. A Woman with no Strings Attached is a startling tale of bicultural and bicephalous love. In its stark portrayal of the new libertinism of the twenty-first century, this novel sets a standard for excellence that may not be equalled for some time.
The heroine Lucie grows up in the Kunderesque wasteland of the dying years of the People's Republic of Czechoslovakia. Feeling pressure from family and friends to become sexually active she has Looking for a special lady with no strings attached love affairs with men trapped in menial employment be A Woman with no Strings Attached is a startling tale of bicultural and bicephalous love. Feeling pressure from family and friends to become sexually active she has two love affairs with men trapped in menial employment because the rules of the communist regime do not allow individuals with their bourgeois class backgrounds to receive university educations or to occupy positions of responsibility in society.
These two trapped men accept to enter into love affairs that will go nowhere, because their own lives can go nowhere. Eventually, Lucie finishes medical school. She begins to date Honza who is headed towards a career in academia and hence a suitable match for someone with her status in society. The erratic quality of Honza's erections and lack of imagination in bed do not disturb her because she attaches little importance to sex. Lucie is periodically troubled my memories of an erotically charged pair of siblings that she met at a resort on a German beach when she was fifteen.
She was quickly attracted to the brother and sister but then recoiled in horror when they appear to invite her to participate in sex as a trio. Eventually, Honza and Lucie marry. Next they make a common mistake frequently committed by young Czechoslovakian couples in the years between and ; they decide to flee to the west. They then spend several nightmarish years waiting for the visa applications to process.
Lucie describes her humiliation at being obliged to bribe one official with presents in order to accelerate the visa applications. The author might have pointed out that during that same period Looking for a special lady with no strings attached doctors in Czechoslovakia routinely bled their patients white with their firm but unstated expectations of presents but apparently feeling that this would be a digression the author refrained from doing so.
The essential point was that the young couple had to endure great suffering and many embarrassments in order to embark on a course of action that would ultimately destroy their marriage and happiness. Lucie and Honza finally manage to arrive in England where they face the daunting task of re-establishing themselves in their professions.
Lucie who is an unstoppable force succeeds through great effort. Honza is not so lucky. He becomes a house husband before moving back to Czechoslovakia when the chance to become a university professor is offered to him. Luce and Honza live apart for several years. The inevitable happens. Lucie catches Honza being unfaithful and concludes that the marriage has lived out its usefulness. Honza acknowledges the truth of the matter and the marriage is dissolved. Upon reflecting on her husband's infidelity, Lucie concludes that she has been letting the grass grow under her feet.Looking for a special lady with no strings attached
