What Your Mother Never Told You about Sex Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Combining the authority of a medical expert with the compassion of a best friend, Dr. Hilda Hutcherson's lively, informed, and sometimes irreverent book explores every aspect of sexuality, from anatomy (hers and his) and self-care to sensational sex and sexual problems.

After more than twenty years in gynecological practice, Dr. Hutcherson addresses what she sees as an overwhelming ignorance about sexual matters that dramatically impacts the lives of women of all ages. In spite of the proliferation of advice in the media-from Cosmo to Sex in the City-there is very little responsible coverage of sexual issues, and none that features the experience and expertise Hutcherson brings to the subject. What Your Mother Never Told You About Sex educates women using step-by-step instructions, empowers them to make their own decisions about sex and sexuality, advises them to be more assertive in their sexuality, and helps them break the cycle of misinformation and distorted views about sex.

Review:

"Would that all mothers knew as much about sex as gynecologist and Columbia University professor Hutcherson! Her book, divided into five parts, is comprehensive yet neither confusing nor overwhelming." Library Journal
