Book Description

Despite what you see on movies and TV, Americans have less sex than people in any other country. One in three women, of all ages, reports a lack of interest in sex, and more than 40 million Americans in relationships are having no sex at all. But rather than feeling complacent about it, most couples would like to have that interest back. The desire for desire is a feeling few women forget—or abandon.

Combining Eastern wisdom and techniques with a Western medical perspective, Jill Blakeway—called a “fertility goddess” by The New York Times for her bestseller, Making Babies—shows women how to revive their libidos and rekindle their sex lives. Assessments and quizzes help the reader place herself and her partner on the scale of yin and yang. Jill then shows how to keep these opposites—passive/active, accepting/initiating, cool/hot—in correct balance. Specific meditations and breathing techniques help unblock qi (pronounced chee), the essential energy that flows through the body. There are chapters on specific elements of love-making: massage, kissing, positions, orgasms—having them, holding them, making them last. And finally, “Sex in Six,” a six-week program of reclaiming an active, satisfying, and possibly better-than-ever-before sex life.

The book is full of case studies, fun “Do It Now” suggestions, and “He Said” boxes written by the author’s husband and medical partner, Noah Rubinstein. It addresses common sexual dysfunctions, healthy hormones, and herbal remedies. Sex Again provides a path to balance and emotional wisdom—individually and as a couple.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book December 26, 2012
By Lillian
Format:Paperback
Jill hit the nail on the head with this book. Many women (and men) lose the passion and sparks they had while dating. Stress, jobs, kids, and sleep deprivation can take the romance out of the bedroom. Jill's 6 week program is excellent for couples to rekindle their romance and rediscover their dormant sex drive!

5.0 out of 5 stars At last!! December 26, 2012
Format:Paperback
This is the book that will actually bring joy to the world...Blakeway has delivered a startlingly fun, engaging, wise and approachable way to revamp the sex lives of all of us who for assorted reasons find we've let our sexual desires become a sidebar of our love lives. It's essential reading for anyone who ever wished to get back that magical something we didn't mean to lose, but somehow can't quite seem to rediscover by ourselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buying one for all my girlfriends! February 16, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Excellent book with a new and fresh approach to sex. When life just gets in the way - work, kids, stress, etc, this book really speaks to what every couple experiences at one point or another. Jill Blakeway explains the root causes for lack of libido with quizzes and easy to follow instructions to help address each issue. I loved the 6 week program with daily emails with mini tasks that tie back to a different chapter in each book. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read it Again and Again April 1, 2013
By Diana
Format:Paperback
Jill Blakeway gets an "A" for an amazing and insightful read! Initially, I thought that Sex Again was for couples who may have lost their passion. Rather, the book gently reminds us that Passion is for all of us. Jill combines her knowledge of Eastern Wisdom with easy to follow practices that help both women and men rekindle their "inner fire". This book is as much about loving ourselves and appreciating our bodies, as it is about making better love. Sex Again should be a "must have" on nightstands everywhere. It is the perfect blend of Yin & Yang. Thanks again Jill for a thoughtful, sexy, and delightful book. I am now taking better care of my feminine self. And, every aspect of my life has benefitted. Surprised?!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eastern Medicine to the rescue February 13, 2013
By Danni
Format:Kindle Edition
As a collaborator on Justine Jensen's Put the Bang Back in Your Bedroom, and Beyond... (Spice It Up! Series), I was interested to see what Jill had to say in her newest release. The book draws on Eastern Medicine and nature to provide tips for rekindling your passion by providing a balance of yin and yang. It has solid advice for those couples who found that their sex life has lost its luster but would like to revamp it. Highly recommended!

More About the Author

Jill Blakeway is a licensed and board certified acupuncturist, clinical herbalist, and an empathic and intuitive practitioner of Chinese medicine. She is also an author and speaker and is based in New York City where she founded and runs one of the largest acupuncture practices in the US, the YinOva Center.

Jill's work, helping women achieve a healthy pregnancy, inspired the New York Times to call her one of the city's top acupuncturists and a "fertility goddess". She wrote her first book Making Babies: A proven three-month program for maximum fertility, with a Reproductive Endocrinologist. Making Babies was published in 2009 and is based on a Chinese medical fertility program developed at the YinOva Center, combined with conventional medical advice from her co-author, Dr. Sami S. David.

Jill's second book Sex Again: Recharging your libido, grew out of her clinical practice and in response to couples asking for advice about how to revitalize their sex lives. Jill, and her team at the YinOva Center, noticed that women of all ages were telling them that they wanted to want to have sex again and wished they could enjoy sex more. This led Jill to explore some of the ancient Taoist texts looking for solutions for her very modern patients. Having created a system that works, she wrote about it in Sex Again, which includes a program to help couples recharge their libido in six weeks.

Jill speaks often about natural medicine on TV and radio and was the first acupuncturist to give a TED talk at TEDGlobal in 2012.
