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.

Format: Paperback
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!

Dr. Laurie Mintz' book A Tired Woman's Guide to Passionate Sex: Reclaim Your Desire and Reignite Your Relationship is a well-written, thoughtful book that helps women make a workable game plan to get sex back on track in the bedroom. I am a sex coach who works with men, women and couples here in Portland, Oregon. Many of my clients struggle with feeling so overwhelmed by life that sex is nowhere on the menu. This book is a huge hit in my office. Dr. Mintz is well respected in academic circles. She brings her substantial knowledge about sex and sexual function to the common but very challenging issue of uneven sexual desire. Get this book! It's could be the life support for your dead bedroom.
