Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Psychologist Mintz offers solutions for women with flagging sex drives and lackluster love lives in this accessible guide. A onetime sufferer herself, Mintz speaks from a place of experience and professional wisdom, encouraging readers to explore the (admittedly gimmicky) "Five T's"-thoughts, talk, time, touch and trysts-in an effort to reconnect with their libidos. After covering common causes (stress, life transitions, parenting, etc.), Mintz moves on to the techniques, many of which can be boiled down to increasing self-awareness, easing anxiety over charged thoughts or activities, and communicating with one's partner; Mintz goes so far as to offer sample scripts for broaching the subject of sex issues. Bolstered with plenty of case studies, readers are bound to identify with at least some of the examples here, learn to disregard the concept of "normal," , and find plenty of worthwhile exercises. Taking her topic seriously (also addressing, early on, more serious concerns such as illness, sexual trauma, and infidelity), Mintz offers deep sympathy and a number of sound options for rekindling burned-out sex lives.

As a therapist myself, I will recommend this book to both my own clients and my friends. It's so great to find a resource I can trust. This book gives real, practical information that is actually based on years of clinical experience and current research--a combination that is hard to find in self-help materials. It uses real life examples and explains everything so clearly and concisely, while also giving specific steps to take. And it's such an important topic!

I never put out to my boyfriend, so I bought this book cause he complained all the time. He read it and told me about all the things we could do, but I didn't do anything cause I hate the thought of penis. After he cheated on me with thirteen women I decided maybe I should try and put some more effort into the relationship, after reading this book I realized how wrong I was about sex and that I will get pregnant the moment I ever try again, thankgod my boyfriend has herpes now so I wont be touching him for a long time!
