Book Overview

Popular TV shows like Sex in the City portray women as no-holds-barred sexual adventurers: confident, free and fulfilled. But the reality is that many women still lack the knowledge they need to make informed sexual decisions, enjoy sexual pleasure and take charge of their sexuality both in and outside of the bedroom.

Recommendation from College Woman

This book was recommended to me in my Women's Health course at my undergraduate university. I picked it up and couldn't put it down! It has made my sex life much more healthy and enjoyable! My roomates and I have loved sitting around and talking about our sex lives and reading exerpts to each other. I am giving it to them for the holidays. I think it makes an excellent gift.

Excellent suggestions!!!!

My therapist works with one of the authors and suggested this book to help me in my recovery from childhood sexual abuse and becoming more knowlegeable about my own sexuality. I found this VERY informative and helpful. The exercises and suggestions that were given were really helpful and I have bought another copy to give to my sister! Thanks for this book! It is a definite recommendation for any woman (or man who wants to understand his woman) who is looking for an updated guide on sexuality and health.

Reads Like a Novel!

Its hard to imagine a book about female (and male) sexuality reading like a novel, but this one does! Its A - Z about our sexual selves, sexual programming, changing old patterns, knowing what patterns need to be addressed, how to address those patterns with partners, sexual trauma, diseases, etc. As soon as I started reading the Forward, I couldn't put the book down. While I was completely absorbed in this book, I discovered my partner was reading over my shoulder the whole time. We expecially found the section on body changes with aging and ways to maintain a strong sexual relationship into middle age and beyond valuable.This is my birthday gift for all of my friends this year. A must for every woman (and man) to read and reference again and again.

Recommendation

I have just finished reading Sex Matters for Women by Foley et al. and will be recommending it to clients, students, friends, and my daughters. This book is a rare find because it manages to speak with sophistication and depth about essential sexual matters while remaining pragmatic and scientifically informative. The prose is clear, enjoyable and easy reading. It is not often that one finds all of this rolled into one fine book. In addition to the exercises, listings, resources and informative vignettes, the book uses a developmental frame for understanding sexuality. I especially appreciated the authors sensitivity to the individulality and complexity of each persons sexual life. Women are encouraged to know their own "sexual story" and are empowered with compassionate, accurate guidance to aid in this journey. I strongly recommend this book and am grateful to haveit as a resource for myself, my patients, and my family.Anne Brantley Segall, MSW, BCDClinical Social Worker
