     Women are amazing. We climb to the highest levels in the business world, juggle our time between friends and family, and volunteer a helping hand when asked—all without seeming to break a sweat. But frequently what hides beneath that ultra-competent exterior is someone screaming out for change.     In Women, Sex, Power, and Pleasure, sexuality counselor and nurse-midwife Evelyn Resh focuses on helping you create the life and sex life you always hoped for by looking at your relationship to pleasure in general. With a refreshing and disarming sense of humor, she explores the importance of all types of pleasures—from a simple coffee break to great sex—and shows that without having these experiences on a regular basis, life feels empty and overall health suffers.     In her quest to explain why so many women’s lives are barren of such pleasure, Resh lays out six attributes—self-esteem, physical health, spiritual satisfaction, creativity, resilience, and compassion—that are essential to accessing and prioritizing pleasure. When these six attributes are strong and balanced, women feel powerful and deserving of pleasure in all its forms. However, when even one is weak, they turn away from pleasure—especially sex.     With chapters structured around some of the most common reasons she’s heard for avoiding sex in her practice—I Feel Nothing, Menopause Is Killing Me, I’m Too Busy!, I’m Too Fat to Have Sex—she sheds light on the imbalances that result in lives devoid of sexual desire and activity. With practical guidance, self-assessment questions, and stories from her practice and personal life, Resh explains how you can regain your emotional wellness and live a powerful life that includes a steady relationship with pleasure and sexual satisfaction.

Review:

“If you’ve lost your desire, Resh will help you find your way back to sexy! Empathetic and informative, Women, Sex, Power & Pleasure smashes through common barriers tosexual satisfaction with gusto and passion!”— Ian Kerner, New York Times best-selling author of She Comes First “If Erma Bombeck had been a wise sex counselor, this is the book she would have written. A happy combination of clinical insights and trenchant humor makes Evelyn Resh’s book delightful and essential reading for anyone, anywhere, who has ever wondered about women, sex, power, or pleasure—from teenage to menopause and beyond.”— Gina Ogden, Ph.D., LMFT, author of The Return of Desire, The Heart & Soul of Sex, and Women Who Love Sex  “Evelyn Resh teaches us how to create emotional wellness by giving us permission to keep pleasure and sex in the forefront of our minds. We need more books that advocate putting pleasure first. Brava!”— Barbara Carrellas, author of Ecstasy is Necessary and Urban Tantra “As a sex therapist, writer of books for women about sex, and a teacher of sex therapy, I highly recommend Women, Sex, Power & Pleasure. If you’re not happy with your sex life and frustrated with your own libido, this book may be just the jump-start you need for a new direction. Building on what you already know about sex, this book asks you to dive deeper into what you might not have known about you. Evelyn Resh’s book is like a conversation with a good friend—honest, intimate and to the point. For women who want pleasure, want to take charge of their sexual lives, and want to take hold of their own capacity for change, Women, Sex, Power & Pleasure is a wonderful book.”— Sallie Foley, co-author of Sex Matters for Women “Women, Sex, Power & Pleasure is a book about all this and more. It brings up-to-date information about sex and pleasure in a culture that still doesn’t talk enough about these needs. Women deserve accurate and contemporary information to guide them to a healthy sexuality, and this book does just that.”— Joe Kort, Ph.D., director of the Center for Relationship and Sexual Health “A very thoughtful look at a complex and often difficult subject.”— Paul Joannides, Psy.D., author of Guide To Getting It On

Book Description Hay House Inc, United States, 2013. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Modern women are amazing. High-powered careers, smart children, terrific partners, exciting friends, beautiful homes, financial savvy. They know how to manage big money (or budget to the penny, in these trying times), big responsibilities, and big orgasms with the partner of their choice - and all on their own terms. They really do have it all, right? As a sexuality counsellor and midwife, the women who come into Evelyn Resh s office completely debunk this have-it-all myth: they re exhausted, frustrated, overextended wives and mothers who, for all intents and purposes, are miserable because they wish desperately that the life we think they re leading was the life they actually had. Many are so focused on getting jobs done - at the office and at home - that life s pleasures are a rarity. Many of them are also managing constant battles with their mate because of disparate appetites for sex, boredom with sex, or an inability to identify with the idea of its general importance to healthy living and a satisfying marriage. In this book, readers will learn how to reinvigorate their lust for life and for sex and find out how both depend on markers of emotional wellbeing we rarely think of as being precursors to pleasure of all kinds - sex included.
