Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“I never want to have sex again.”

If you feel like sex just isn’t worth the effort, you’re not alone. Forty million American women are frustrated by their lack of sexual passion. They know something’s missing—and their husbands know it, too—but the emotional, physical, and mental obstacles to healthy desire can be a knot that seems too tangled to unravel.

Drawing on twenty years of clinical experience, Laurie Watson shows that it really is possible to restore the thrill of sex, using proven psychological methods and personal accounts from actual therapy sessions. Her strategies will:

• Offer a glimpse into the reality of other people’s bedrooms

• Address the sexual problems that can develop with life changes—from marriage to motherhood to menopause

• Uncover the hidden factors that impact desire—stress, cultural messages, emotional connection, chemical and hormonal challenges, physical appearance issues, and more

• Show how joyful, meaningful, satisfying sex can be yours again

Candid, practical, and much needed, this book can help you rediscover your sexual self or discover it for the first time. Instead of dreading bedtime, you can look forward to it again.  

Review:

"For someone who pegs wedding cake as a kind of anti-aphrodisiac, sex therapist and Psychology Today blogger Watson is surprisingly optimistic — most sexless marriages, she asserts, 'can be saved.' Always frank, Watson begins by debunking the common fear that one's sex life is unusual, or that a marriage's problems are unique; the loss of libido after 'I do' is not an unusual problem, she argues, but in order to address it, both partners will need to put in a lot of effort, time, and honest communication. In broad strokes, Watson discusses individual and marital circumstances that can affect one's sex drive — such as hormonal changes and having kids — while offering more detailed advice and practical bedroom tips. She tackles the 'lusive' female orgasm, discusses how to negotiate expectations regarding foreplay, and explores how erotica, sex toys, and masturbation can be used to revivify one's libido and bring a partner back into physical intimacy. She also delves into possible personal hangups, such as childhood misconceptions regarding sex and the difficulty of recovering from an affair. Though aimed at the fairer sex, men and women alike will find plenty of guidance in this compendium of expert advice and case studies. Agent: Stephany Evans, FinePrint Literary Management. (Dec.)"
