Dr. Mary Gresham
The introduction starts the book off with the idea of "lesbian bed death," a term she only mentions once. The theme of the book is how to maintain sex in long-term relationships for female couples. She starts off with some fascinating statistics comparing the rate of "bed death" between straight couples, male couples, and female couples. Now, I've never been in a long-term relationship myself, so it wasn't helpful for me in that sense (so far), but I nonetheless found the book very interesting personally as well as for general thought/knowledge. Even though the theme is for long-term relationships, it's easy to see how each issue is relevant to those of us who are less experienced or single as well.
She is very thorough and covers every topic I could think of that pertains specifically to women and then more specifically to queer women: body image issues, fear of talking about sex, aging, orgasms, socially learned passivity, devaluing of sex, cheating, etc.Read more ›
Much of what Dr Corwin is conveying is that sexual intimacy is an important part to sustaining and enhance relationships, that intimacy on the physical level does indeed enhance the longevity of relationships. To get to this point she wisely addresses issues that can hamper or even block continued sexual intimacy beyond the first two years of a relationship - the third year drop as she calls it. Some of the reasons for moving from Sexually Active happiness to occult abstinence include overcoming past sexual abuse, whether as a child or as an adult in an abusive relationship, the simple facts of aging and how aging affects the alterations in the makeup of the boy (including the misconception that older women see themselves as undesirable), to the myths of menopause reducing sex drive, the misunderstood concepts of hormones, the subject of fidelity, body image (overweight women tend to perceive themselves as not sexually attractive), and so forth. She always supports her chapter topics with examples derived from her counseling experience that make each of the discussions pertinent.Read more ›
