The Sex-Starved Wife is a long overdue book that will dispel the commonly held myth that men are always the more highly sexed spouse. Millions of sexy women feel shame believing they're the only ones whose husbands aren't interested in sex. By shedding light on this important subject and offering tools for boosting desire, Weiner Davis will help couples move from emotional and physical distance to building more loving and passionate sexual relationships.
--Harville Hendrix, author of Getting the Love You Want and Keeping the Love You Find
ÒPut on a pot of coffee and curl up in your chair, because reading The Sex-Starved Wife is like sitting down to chat with your closest--and wisest-- friend about your most intimate secrets. Michele Weiner Davis explores previously un-chartered territories to help women restore intimacy in their relationships. Wise, warm and comprehensive in her approach, Michelle delivers what so many women need in a loving and compassionate way. And when you finish reading this book, leave it on your husband's night table, because this is a must-read for men and women.Ó --Scott Haltzman, MD, author of The Secrets of Happily Married Women and The Secrets of Happily Married Men
"Michele Weiner Davis shines a light inside the American bedroom and takes us 'undercovers' to reveal the truth of low male desire. If you're in a relationship with a guy who's tuned out and turned off, take heart: The Sex-Starved Wife will provide you with a clear course of action to get him tuned in and turned on."
--Ian Kerner, sex therapist and author of She Comes First and Passionista: the Empowered Woman's Guide to Pleasuring a Man
"In this breakthrough book Michele Weiner Davis gives us a refreshing-pro-sexual and pro-marriage approach to women seeking to revitalize their husband's desire with a plethora of good information, good strategies, and good techniques. Michele emphasizes working out the sexual issues together and offers realistic hope for change. I highly recommend The Sex Starved Wife as the best book in the field to confront the very real problem of male inhibited sexual desire and avoidance."
--Barry McCarthy, Ph.D., professor of psychology at American University, certified sex and marital therapist, and author of Men's Sexual Health
"You must read this all important book; a vindication for men; a milestone event for women -- and a victory for marriage. This is the best book you can read in one sitting. Powerful, poignant, precisely to the point."
--Dr. Pat Love Author of Hot Monogamy and co-author of How to Improve Your Marriage Without Talking About It
"Weiner Davis has been helping couples for decades. It's wonderful that she's now bringing her solution-focused expertise to a rarely discussed but painfully common problem, low sexual desire in husbands. If you are struggling with a sexual divide in your marriage, buy this book. Your love life- and your marriage- depends on it!"
--Diane Sollee, founder and director, Smartmarriages.com
If you think that women are the only ones saying "no" to sex, think again. Millions of men have little desire to be intimate with their wives. The problem is, no one is talking about it. Until now. This gutsy book reveals the truth about what goes on behind closed doors and what couples can do to bridge the desire gap.

I was disappointed the author devoted just one paragraph to divorce/separation. I think a whole chapter should have been written for the women who should leave these selfish self-centered men. Women: do NOT waste your time with a man who won't do anything and everything to make sex an important part of the marriage. You are worth much more. It is abusive to withhold love and affection. I find it awful and degrading all of the work is expected from the wife for remedying this. What my husband put me through was abuse but oh so subtle. Recognize it for what it is and stop appeasing these men. They are cruel and what they are doing to their wives is inhumane.
It also helped you to understand what emotions you may be feeling and how to communicate them to him without causing more problems.
Very good book
