Publisher's Summary

This 2,000-year-old self-help guide is considered one of the most important and enduring works in all the world's literature on the basic psychology of male and female sexual behavior. With poetic wit and sophistication, Ovid shares his opinions and strategies for "seducing a woman" and for "holding a man." This modern, prose translation provides easy access to the social life of ancient Rome and makes accessible the examples from mythology that Ovid uses to illustrate practical time-tested seduction techniques.

Have we really changed so little?

An insightful lovers manual, which is probably responsible for many generations alive today. Mildly shocking in the Christian epoch, but reflects a moral cycle which makes this book colorful and entertaining today.

Timeless man has not changed in 2000 years
Of note neither have women
Though I am not as sure
Read with amusement but not concretely
