Are Italians the best lovers?

Later, at the villa, we discovered that Boris was lousy. Magdalena concocted a delousing fluid from the bark of the ancient fig tree in the courtyard. She also makes all her own clothes from local sisal plants. They require no more effort than a stern glance to part, revealing a lush topography no Fodor's Guide could convey.

I can't speak for them as lovers (unfortunately), but I find Dutch women to be the sexiest women in Europe, with French women an extremly close second. OK, OK, it's a tie!

Zsa-Zsa : The problem in my opinion, is not that men could feel ignored...But that the same thread, written by a man, and answered by men, would have been flamed...

I don't think this question was directed to women. Perhaps they are the only ones with tales to tell...

Clairobscur, speak for yourself. I couldn't care less if the thread had been written by a man and answered by men.

Why don't you give it a shot?

Curious : perhaps *you* couldn't care less. But a lot of other peoples do care. Each time I saw this kind of questions asked by men, their authors have been flamed.

So, I don't care about you giving your opinion about european men, but I care about those rightful people who ride the high horse when a man dare to say he could have some interest in encountering an european female, but obviously (since no one complained)think the reverse is perfectly OK...And *that* piss me off...

Still later that night, the sound of shrieking metal rent the air. Boris went to check and returned with three women. Their motorcar had struck the kerb awkwardly and nearly plunged onto the rocks far below. The women were Americans, and badly shaken. Their names were Zsa Zsa, Curious and Clair. We offered them snifters of our good marq to calm them. But instead, they became enflamed, accusing each other of causing the accident. Finally, unable to bear the discord, Magalena stood and slowly began her dance of the five urges. The three visitors were tranfixed, and soon joined in the dance.

Much later, Magdalena whispered, "See, Guy, American women also have the knowledge."

"What knowledge is that, Lena," I said.

She said, "The knowledge of fire that burns without consuming."

Then the sun arose.

Guy "inflamed" me as he always does...and not with his exquisite elixor. I care not for what others say... Guy MUST be Italian!

Great post, guy. However, may I point out that I'm not an american woman, but a french man?

That day was the saddest of my life thus far. I walked to the village to collect my check from the American publisher and returned to find Boris and Magdalena swimming naked in the cistern. She ran to me, water sluicing from her highlands like springmelt. "Oh, Guy," she said. "I love you so, but you're such a dreamer. Your body is here, but your mind is always adventuring."

"So, Boris..." I began.

"Yes," she said with a sad shake of her head, which made her northern Alps tremble. "You have such fire, Guy, but you can never be one of us."

"Because I am..."

"Yes," she sobbed. "A Fodorite."

I packed and quickly left, hurrying to catch the Americans, despite indications that Clair had turned out to a male.

Don't know much about comparative lovers but do know Italians make the most vindictive ex-husbands.

I feel this topic need to be deeply researched, and I am willing to volunteer. Please send me a man from each locale - give me a year, and I promise to submit a complete and unbiased report. Thanks in advance. Marie

I was adrift for many days, borne on a rivulet of despair. I washed up in village whose name I do not know, standing blankly beside a fishing boat near a cathedral. The captain recognized a soul at sea and offered me a berth. I recognized the hand of fate and boarded.

By day I labored, hauling the nets heavy with fish. My body grew hard. By night I drank.

One evening we were putting in to Gaeta for fresh water. My crewmates, young bulls, strained to plunge forward into the softness of the harbor town. I hung back, as was my custom. But fate found me.

A whisp of melody reached my ear. There. And again. Then it surged, a single viola string, throbbing with pain and joy. It pulled me to the gunwhale. And it was Magdalena, crying my name, running across the wharf, her ripe body sculpted by the peasant's dress pressed back into her contours by the sea breeze.

My shipmates roared and lifted me on their shoulders, carrying me ashore, back to Magdalena and to life.

"Oh, Guy," she whispered, much later. "I now understand. I am an adventurerer too." She unfolded a Fodor's Guide across her undulating escarpments and pointed south. "Next, let us venture here," she said.

(The author is a writer named J.D. Miller, whose first novel received a particularly painful rejection last night. So your kind words were greatly appreciated.)

Guy/ JD - hang in there and just keep sending them in. You'll get published.
There is a large market for romance novels. Use your travel experiences and mix with some good and accurate location descriptions. Good luck!
