Where the book Muscle Love, focused mainly on the out of standard taste of the author for female muscle and his own experience with his wife’s muscle growth, Muscle therapy is a different book. Instead, Therapy focuses on the journey of a man to accept himself for who he is and on how he is perceived with his muscle fetish.
The story is about Kyle, a thirty something man, who discovers along his life, that his muscle fetish is not accepted, as it is perceived as too far out of the society’s standard. The book describes the important experiences of his life, bringing sometimes doubts, cheers, understanding and most of all acceptance of himself.
The book is well written, easy to read and not lacking details. The author brings a lot of insights, thoughts and explanation on the psychological burden that can be encountered by such persons. Richard Greye surprises sometimes, by describing detailed self-reflection, analysis on the state of mind of Kyle. It brings tremendous depth to the book.
But this book is not only a psychological analysis, the author shapes the story around the love life of Kyle, showing how step by step he got closer to understand his tastes, himself and learns to accept himself for who he really is. It’s not always a quiet ride and expect many bumps along the way. If you are enjoying the topic, I strongly recommend this book, especially if you appreciated muscle love.
