The Sexual Alarm System: Women’s Unwanted Response to Sexual Intimacy and How to Overcome It by Judith Leavitt explores the shield that develops around many women’s bodies to protect them from real and perceived sexual intrusions and dangers. From a young age, women are socialized to regard their sexuality as something that puts them in danger. However, the Sexual Alarm System interferes with a woman’s ability to be sexual when she wants to be. Leavitt discusses how the Alarm functions, how it develops, what triggers it, and how it interferes with a woman’s ability to be sexual in an intimate partnership. In addition, this book presents specific body exercises for therapists to give to women to work through this Alarm and to develop the ability to enjoy their sexuality.

About the Author:

Judy Leavitt, EdD, is a licensed psychologist and diplomate certified sex therapist. She has a private practice in Wayland, Massachusetts where she works with individuals, couples, and families. At the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology in Boston, Massachusetts, she is an adjunct faculty teaching women’s psychosexual development and experience, human sexuality, and couples therapy.

Review:

Judith Leavitt has identified a new phenomenon in human sexuality and sex therapy known as the sexual alarm system. Therapists, particularly sex therapists, and women alike will gain informative, useful, and therapeutic information from this text. (Gerald Weeks, University of Nevada, Las Vegas)

Dr. Judith Leavitt draws from her long career in sex therapy to identify the psychoneurobiology of the 'sexual alarm system' triggered by age-old control, misogyny, and over-sexualization of women and girls. Her clear, well-documented book offers practical strategies to help women regain personal pleasure and intimate connection. This is a unique and invaluable resource for healthcare professionals, for women, and for their partners. (Gina Ogden, author of "The Heart and Soul of Sex", "Women Who Love Sex", and "The Return of Desire")

Groundbreaking! Judith Leavitt has given us the missing key to understanding and effectively addressing sexual desire problems in women. (Wendy Maltz, LCSW, author of "The Sexual Healing Journey" and "The Porn Trap")
