Description

Women today are more knowledgeable about sex than ever before - but many still struggle with sexual myths, self-doubt, and "embarrassing" questions. This trusted book has already helped many thousands of women understand how their bodies work and take charge of their sexuality. The authors are experienced therapists who present solid, science-based information on the topics women are talking about and those that aren't discussed enough - from how to have more satisfying sex to questions about hormones, anatomy, relationships, body image, and trauma. Empowering exercises foster self-discovery and self-confidence. Fully updated, and with a greater focus on positive psychology and resilience, the second edition features expanded discussions of sexual response, male sexuality, sexually transmitted infections, and lesbian sexuality.

Reviews

"The most comprehensive book on women's sexual health I have ever read. The clear, positive information and the suggested exercises cover all aspects of women's sexuality and offer ways for women to take charge of their sexual selves. The second edition features new information and resources, offered in a supportive and affirming manner, which will help readers develop sexual comfort, confidence, and satisfaction. A 'must read' for women of all ages." - Beverly Whipple, coauthor of The G Spot and The Science of Orgasm "This second edition takes a classic book on female sexuality to another level...With a focus on female sexual satisfaction and pleasure, this book is a 'must have' for women of all ages and backgrounds. I can't wait to share it with my daughter!" - Hilda Hutcherson, author of What Your Mother Never Told You About Sex
