As a sex therapist who has seen many couples and individual women complaining of lack of desire, I was curious as to whether Laurie Mintz's Tired Woman's Guide to Passionate Sex would be of value to my clients. In an organized, clear format, Mintz lays out the myriad of causes for their innate desire or libido, while providing many reasons why the path to regain it is worth it emotionally, medically and spiritually. Also included are tried-and-true techniques she has used in treatment to inspire a revitalization in her clients' sex lives. Mintz has written the book in a supportive, warm, authentic voice. I also appreciated her transparency in sharing her own personal journey in her introduction. Additionally, throughout the book, she has interspersed case examples from her practice which offer the reader scenarios with which they might identify. I would recommend this to clients. I would also offer it to a friend who repeats that so oft repeated line: "Sex? That is the last thing I'm thinking about these days. But I do miss what I used to feel like." (Sari Cooper, L.C.S.W., Review in Contemporary Sexuality)
Laurie Mintz's A Tired Woman's Guide to Passionate Sex should be required reading for all tired women who want to rekindle their sexual desire -- and all the men who want to support them. (Janet Hyde, Ph.D, Professor of Psychology and Women's Studies, University of Wisconsin, Past President, Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality, Past President, APA Division for the Psychology of Women)
This groundbreaking, definitive book is written for all women (and their partners) who have ever been too tired to have sex, and who struggle with guilt, shame, resentment, and the loss of sexual desire! Using time tested psychological principles, Dr. Mintz provides information and guidance about activities and exercises in a conversational tone that is disclosing, open, honest, humorous, and straightforward. The result is a gently shaping of attitude and skills that provide opportunity for the path to passion! Dr. Mintz acknowledges that problems can be complex, and provides additional resources for those circumstances.

Dr. Laurie Mintz's A Tired Woman's Guide to Passionate Sex takes the woman by the hand and guides her through specific exercises to enhance her sensual and sexual experiences with her partner. (Beveryly Whipple, Ph.D., Professor Emerita, Rutgers University, Co-author of The G-Spot (2004), The Science of Orgasm (2006), & The Orgasm Answer Guide (2009))
This book takes an important, much needed step in addressing the sexual needs of women by suggesting novel strategies for them to utilize to reinvigorate their nonexistent or less than passionate sexual lives.... The advice in this book is easy to understand, the reasons for the techniques are compelling, and the anecdotes from women about their tiring lives and depleted sexual libidos will likely resonate with many readers.
