From the Back Cover

Dr. Ruth Has Done It Again...

With candor and humor, America's favorite sex doctor distills a lifetime of experience, clinical research, and teaching to reveal the secrets that will enhance your life with the most pleasurable and loving sexual experiences ever.

Although the emphasis in the book is on finding sexual pleasure in your relationship, Dr. Ruth is also a realist. She explains that every couple changes over time and offers expert advice for dealing with approaching speed bumps so they won't turn into barriers. Dr. Ruth also shows how to embrace change—change that can help push boredom aside and keep the romance alive!

In this wise and often funny book, the nation's best-loved sex therapist boils down her life's teaching to ten basic secrets and offers suggestions for:

  • Making Sex a Priority

  • Getting to Know Yourself

  • Understanding Your Partner

  • Exploring the Kama Ruthra

  • Kicking Boredom out of the Bedroom

  • Remembering the Romance

  • Indulging in Afterplay—It's as Important as Foreplay

  • Improving Communication

  • Preparing for the Changes That Lie Ahead

  • Improvising to Sustain a Terrific Sex Life

Dr. Ruth Has People Talking . . .

"Her name and the distinctive thrill of her voice have become inextricably linked with the subject of sex."
—New York Times

"Her energy level is higher than that of a charged particle."—People Magazine

Format: Paperback
I ordered this book based on a recommendation of a friend who also told me about Seasoned Romance, Better Than I Ever Expected, Dr. Ruth's Sex at Fifty, and Naked At Our Age. All of those books have been home runs, so why wouldn't I go for Dr. Ruth's Top Ten Secrets for Great Sex, too.

Heck, this book is worth its price based on #s 1, 5, and 7!!!

Unless you've been a senior and have bought into the notion that sex is over (or greatly diminished) at our age, you can't begin to understand what it means to read books like this, especially when you realize that life and lovemaking can actually be better as you get older!

I'm incredibly grateful to you, Dr. Ruth, and all the authors of the other books I've mentioned. So is my husband of 57 years.
