From the Back Cover:

"In a world in which abuse and exploitation mar too many women's experiences of sexuality, this readable and woman-affirming book breaks new ground with its broad understanding of the nature and power of women's sexual pleasure."-BOSTON WOMEN'S HEALTH BOOK COLLECTIVE, authors of Our Bodies Ourselves

"Women Who Love Sex explores a whole new landscape: the sexuality and sensuality of healthy women on their own terms-not simply in relationship to the male 'norm.' You will find inspiration and affirmation in this book."-CHRISTIANE NORTHRUP, M.D., author of Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom

"An unconventional exploration of female sexuality, from its earthiest to its most ethereal. Gina Ogden manages to enliven even the tired rhetoric of recovery, and she offers a feminist perspective on sexual pleasure for women that challenges the prevailing feminist preoccupation with sexual abuse." -WENDY KAMINER, author of I'm Dysfunctional, You're Dysfunctional and True Love Waits

"In Women Who Love Sex we are invited to hear women's voices proudly, joyfully, honestly telling us what they want, what they love and what they know. In listening to these women, we gain clarity about our own desire. Gina Ogden helps open the way for a new understanding of women's sexual experience: not a 'relentless dash for orgasm' but a richly varied set of experiences building on empathy, vulnerability, engagement, ecstasy, humor, and increasing intimate connection. The nature of women's sexual desire, obscured for so long in writings on sexual development, comes alive in this courageous book." -JUDITH V. JORDAN, Ph.D., co-author of Women's Growth in Connection

"An expansive, warmhearted book that redefines and reframes women's sexual pleasure. Gina Ogden stays with these women-never judging, pathologizing, or abandoning them." -DALMA HEYN, author of The Erotic Silence of the American Wife and Marriage Shock
