More About the Author
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:
Sex after 50

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.Read more ›
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.

I only bought this book because it was a dollar or two. If I had seen it in a bookstore instead of online I wouldn't even have spent a dollar or two. Not a very modern sex book. Read morePublished on November 25, 2005 by L. M. Heap
