For Women Only: A Revolutionary Guide to Overcoming Sexual Dysfunction and Reclaiming Your Sex Life Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The national bestseller about achieving sexual satisfaction-the book that is fast becoming an essential reference for women throughout the country

For Women Only is the antidote to what women have been told for years, that their sexual problems are all in their heads. Dr. Jennifer Berman, one of the few female urologists in the United States, and her sister, Dr. Laura Berman, a sex therapist, wrote this comprehensive handbook to help the whole woman by examining all facets of women's sexual health, to arm them with the information they need about their bodies and sexual responses, and to provide them with the full spectrum of options for treatment. This is a book to take to a doctor, to give to a partner, and to share with other women.

Four in ten women of all ages in the United States experience some kind of sexual problem at some point in their lives. The Bermans founded one of the first clinics in the country dedicated to the treatment of female sexual dysfunction, and in For Women Only they draw on their own research and clinical findings to show that sexual complaints do not have to be endured, but are in fact highly treatable.

Among the topics the Drs. Berman address in For Women Only:

- Viagra and drugs like it: Will they work for women?

- The debate over the cause of female sexual dysfunction: physical, psychological, or both?

- What's behind the lag in sex research for women

- How doctors deal with female sexual complaints

- Sexual problems as a couples' issue

- The important role testosterone plays in female sexual function

- Assessing your sexual function and enhancing sexual arousal and pleasure

Review:

"More of a 'how to get help' book than a 'how-to' book, this cutting-edge report belongs in all public and academic libraries." Library Journal

Synopsis:

A groundbreaking book by the co-directors of one of the country's first women's sexual health clinics-destined to be an essential resource for women throughout the country.

According to The Journal of the American Medical Association, 43 percent of American women suffer from some kind of sexual dysfunction. And though the introduction of Viagra has increased attention to male sexual concerns, the problems women face are often ignored. For Women Only is the first book to offer a comprehensive exploration of female sexual dysfunction.

The co-directors of the Women's Sexual Health Clinic at Boston University Medical Center — Jennifer Berman, a urologist, and her sister, Laura Berman, a sex therapist-draw on research and clinical findings to show that many of the physical problems that cause impotence in men can cause sexual dysfunction in women. In addition, many women experience diminished sexual response as they age, go through menopause, and after hysterectomies or other pelvic surgery.

Covering both physiological and psychological issues in a straightforward, sympathetic style, the Bermans provide authoritative, easy-to-understand information on the medical breakthroughs and treatments that can help women of all ages enjoy more fulfilling sex lives.
