From the Inside Flap:

?Sex comes with a big shiny bow wrapped around it: a present that promises the ultimate physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual fulfillment, but once the box is open, everything?s in pieces and there are no instructions.?
?From the Introduction

Why are so many women so unhappy with their sex lives? How can they kindle?or rekindle?their interest in sex and get the satisfaction they deserve? After a quarter of a century of research, writing, teaching, and counseling men, women, and couples, psychologist and sex therapist Sandra Leiblum, Ph.D., and sex educator Judith Sachs know that sex is a conundrum for most women.

At various stages in their lives, women find themselves in a gulf between fantasy and reality. They may want pleasure but have no idea how to go about getting it. They may be uncomfortable with their bodies, too tired at the end of the second shift, bored with the same-old same-old, but ambivalent about sexual risk-taking. Still others have simply (or not so simply) lost interest. All the technique in the world won?t help if you don?t want sex in the first place. With this book, patience, and practice, you can look forward to a sexual revival?and the comfort of knowing you?re unique but not alone.

Whatever stage you?re at, Getting the Sex You Want will help you understand the cycles of interest and apathy over your lifetime and discover?or rediscover?the joys of your sexuality. Leiblum and Sachs have synthesized the latest research into women?s sexuality and desire with encouraging results. As warmly intimate as it is savvy, this clear, accessible, inviting guide includes the voices of dozens of women representing a vast array of experiences and opinions about sex. There?s a wealth of information and inspiration to help you reach your sexual potential, and good reasons why the effort is worth it.

Part I examines women?s life cycles to map their journeys from one erotic destination to the next, from the blossoming of sexual interest in childhood and adolescence, through the reproductive years, to the fire-and-ice changes that go on throughout midlife and on into ?highlife,? or older age. Part II is a tasting menu of new and different possibilities: cybersex, hormone treatment and medication, cosmetic and reproductive surgery, mind-body practices, therapy, and more that will help you take control to want the sex you get?and get the sex you want.

From the Back Cover:

“Reading this book is like having your own personal coach and cheerleader. You will find the wisdom and support to help you enjoy more vibrant relationships and make more informed choices in today’s complex world—whether you are a grandmother or just starting out on your sexual journey. Here are the latest medical updates along with smart how-to’s to help you move beyond ‘Just Say No’ messages to discover the power of saying ‘Yes’ to the pleasure you deserve.” —Gina Ogden, Ph.D., author of Women Who Love Sex

“Finally, women have fresh opportunities to rekindle their desire, and this book gives them some unique guidance. It canvasses the best of the current research on female sexuality, interviews dozens of adult women of all ages about their sexual lives, and offers women marvelous ways to enhance their lives in the bedroom. If you seek a rewarding journey in this fundamental aspect of human living—sexual pleasure—read this entertaining and authoritative book.” —Dr. Helen Fisher, author of The First Sex: The Natural Talents of Women and How They are Changing the World

“Laced with real-world stories and the honest and touching words of women at different stages of life, this book traces the journey of sexual discovery from girlhood to old age. Filled with loads of accessible and useful information, the authors provide readers with a wonderful means of creatively enhancing their sexual lives. With a rare mixture of sound information and gentle guidance, this book invites women to take on a new set of the three Rs—Relax, Respond, and Relish your sexuality!” —Dr. June M. Reinisch, director emerita, the Kinsey Institute for Research in Sex, Gender, and Reproduction

“Leiblum and Sachs provide readers with an array of information on women thinking about, experiencing, and particularly expressing sexuality. The tone is conversational, direct, and energetic; the language spicy. The message is one of determined optimism that women can embrace their own sexual lives.” —Julia R. Heiman, Ph.D., professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences, University of Washington School of Medicine

“As a woman who has dedicated the past thirty-five years to seeking and teaching sexual pleasure, Getting the Sex You Want is on my ‘must read’ list.” -- Betty Dodson, Ph.D., author of Sex for One
