Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

The Berman sisters, coauthors of the bestselling For Women Only, return with this more ambitious but less successful treatment of women's sexual pleasure and health. The doctors adopt a prescriptive writing style in their "mind-body approach" to the numerous influences on sexual satisfaction, including communication, self-esteem, emotional health, chronic diseases, arousal and orgasm problems, family upbringing, and social attitudes. The comprehensive range of topics aren't sufficiently addressed, however; many treatments leave readers feeling merely teased. For instance, while the authors suggest Kegel exercises, they don't provide instructions on how to perform them. They assert that many women don't achieve orgasm from intercourse, yet they fail to discuss oral sex in any practical sense. And while one might expect the doctors—Laura is a sex therapist; Jennifer is a urologist—to provide the most insight in the chapter on the various health problems that affect sexual function, this is one of the most disappointingly sparse parts of the book. Their National Women's Sexual Satisfaction Survey is by far the book's most original contribution, but the findings are awkwardly integrated into the text. While the Bermans' tone is woman-centered and sex-positive, this work is largely disappointing. (Apr.)

Format: Hardcover
This book is more of a self help book than one that unlocks the ten keys to pleasure. Despite the title it doesn't give you 10 secrets to anything profound. Of course communication matters and it helps to feel good about yourself and the relationship. You also should probably address your past issues and have enough lubrication but this is sex ed 101 for most women. One fun quote, "whether you have had one, ten, or twenty sexual parnters, you feel okay about it".

It isn't a "bad" book just mistitled. The bulk of the book is in chapters (relationship health, emotional well being, addressing your past, etc)are typical of a self help book although they cover some hormonal treatments (viagra for women). Neither author is a GYN and the MD Jennifer is actually urologist so just be aware of your sources. They are great on TV and media mavens but they need a better editor and real content.

Their profound conclusion? That orgasm isn't the end all to women's sexual pleasure and the context matters.

Just picked this book up at my neighbor's yard sale. She read it, loved it, and sold it to me. I read the Berman Sisters first book and found it really informative. It actually changed my life because I went, with book in hand, to my doctor and got help. I was in menopause at age 38 and didn't know it. The Secrets book again makes me realize I'm not alone, and the word "normal" is relative to ME... not Samatha on Sex and The City. I commend the Bermans on their efforts and their dedication to helping women such as myself. If I could afford it, I'd fly to their clinic at UCLA to get a tune up every week.

I thought the book was great. I like having one comprehensive "go-to" for questions that come up in the confusing area of pleasure when kids, jobs, husband all seem to be at odds with it! I really enjoyed the chapters that focused on the emotional and relationship health side of things. The information about sexual empowerment was also a must for anyone who feels as though breast-feeding and exhaustion have brought this side of your life to an end. An excellent resource.

I was reluctant to believe I could learn anything new from this dynamic duo. AFter the first best-selling book and the media craze they've enjoyed in the last two years, I thought I had seen and heard enough. Well, NOT the case. While Secrets does contain some obvious details about women's sexuality, it did contain some relevant and exciting new data. I am a researcher and was thrilled to learn that the Berman's invested in doing a National Survey on this subject. Hopefully this will spur the FDA as well as other goverment funding agenceys to fund research in this much needed area. I commend the Berman's for their dedication to the field and their ability to communicate to the public. I recomend this book to women as well as their partners. I'm looking forward to the Secrets for Men.

I appreciate the way the authors put the book together and it is filled with good information. It even covers diseases and disabilities and how these things affect sexuality.
