More About the Author

Dr. Lonnie Barbach is considered the Dear Abby of sexuality and relationships for the baby boom generation. From For Yourself: The Fulfillment of Female Sexuality to The Pause: Positive Approaches to Perimenopause and Menopause, Dr. Barbach has guided countless women through the stages of sexual discovery. Her practical and sage advice is characterized by unjudgmental warmth, always with an emphasis on self-determination and pleasure.

Her work as a couple's therapist for more than three decades and the publication of Going the Distance: Finding and Keeping Lifelong Love crafted with David Geisinger, Ph.D., her partner of 25 years, has defined Dr. Barbach as an acknowledged expert on intimate relationships.

As one of the first co-directors of clinical training at the University of California San Francisco, Human Sexuality Progam, Dr. Barbach created the women's preorgasmic group treatment program. Considered a pioneer in her field, her dozen books, translated into an equal number of languages, have sold over 4 million copies in the U.S. alone. She is a life member of the American Psychological Association, a member of the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists and an elected member of the International Society for the Study of Women's Sexual Health.

Dr Barbach has appeared on hundreds of local radio and television programs as well as most nationally televised talk shows, many several times, including Oprah, Good Morning America, The Today Show, CBS Morning News, and Charlie Rose. She had her own bimonthly segment on San Francisco's KPIX Morning Show for more than 18 months.

Dr. Barbach's contracted advice columns have appeared in Playgirl Magazine, New Woman Magazine, eternelle Magazine and McCall's. She was featured as the lead story, her photograph on the cover, of the 25th anniversary edition of San Francisco Magazine. Articles and excerpts from her books have been published in magazines ranging from Family Circle and Redbook to Cosmopolitan and Men's Health. And her edited compilations of female oriented erotica initiated a new literary genre.
She has authored books, videos or CDs on the following subjects:

Female Sexuality
Sexual Desire
Erotica
Menopause
Rapid Ejaculation
Erection Problems
Sex after 50
Relationship Communication

In 2012, her first book, For Yourself: the fulfillment of female sexuality was recently ranked the #1 self-help book across all surveys carried out by the National Register of Health Care Providers in Psychology, the major credentialing organization for psychologists. For Each Other: sharing sexual intimacy was ranked #4.

Potential readers should start by considering what this book *isn't*. It's not an "erotic" book, intended to titillate. It's not a "how-to-make-your-hot-marriage-hotter" book or a "how-to-be-a-better-lover" book. Neither is it intended for couples whose marriages are extremely dysfunctional, erotically or otherwise. It also might not be helpful for people who don't have a regular sexual partner. With some modifications, it might be helpful for gay and lesbian couples.

It's possible that some of the negative reviews on Amazon have come from people who did not have realistic expectations of this book.

This is a self-help book for couples in committed loving relationships, who are having trouble getting normal enjoyment from sex. Couples having problems in bed with ordinary issues like modesty, female orgasm (that isn't usually a problem for men), difficulty becoming aroused, difficulty expressing tenderness and affection during sex, clumsiness and inexperience, and so on, will find they are guided toward easy and friendly solutions.

In most cases, the underlying problem for such couples is poor communication. Many couples find it difficult to *talk* productively about such intimate and potentially humiliating matters, even though they are *doing* it all the time! That's unfortunate and unnecessary, of course. The author provides a wide variety of ideas, techniques and structured experiences that will help couples overcome these barriers to enjoyment of sexual love.

Sex counselors and all-around marital counselors have been recommending this book for years, and still do. It's a classic. If you look at the list of other titles Amazon customers considered, you can see that this book is one of the best of its type.

I found this book very useful in it's approach and focus. It helped me out tremendously. Barbach has many useful exercises to practice both alone and together, as well as many insights into possible problems.

Every man and wife should read this book !! It really helps to hear a female sex therapist describe how a woman really feels about sexuality . And more importantly it helps a woman to be orgasmic on her own and then to share this joy with her husband. Highly recmend

11 of 20 people found the following review helpful By Psychology Major on October 29, 2008
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book was presented on the back cover, in the introduction and in the reviews as a book for both males and females in regards to their relationship. I call B.S.!

What the book is - a book written by a woman about women in relationships. I read through this book looking for insight into relationships and all I could pull from it was that relationships are one sided. The book presents relationships as 'controlled' by a man and what the book proposes is that the woman should take back 'control.' Relationships should not be controlled by one or the other. In fact relationships work best when the people involved work together and not try to 'control' it.

If the author reads this, I hope next time she re-writes this and includes a mans to co-author the book, so his opinion can be included in each topic discussed.
