“Sex comes with a big shiny bow wrapped around it: a present that promises the ultimate physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual fulfillment, but once the box is open, everything’s in pieces and there are no instructions.” —From the IntroductionWhy are so many women so unhappy with their sex lives? How can they kindle—or rekindle—their interest in sex and get the satisfaction they deserve? After a quarter of a century of research, writing, teaching, and counseling men, women, and couples, psychologist and sex therapist Sandra Leiblum, Ph.D., and sex educator Judith Sachs know that sex is a conundrum for most women. At various stages in their lives, women find themselves in a gulf between fantasy and reality. They may want pleasure but have no idea how to go about getting it. They may be uncomfortable with their bodies, too tired at the end of the second shift, bored with the same-old same-old, but ambivalent about sexual risk-taking. Still others have simply (or not so simply) lost interest. All the technique in the world won’t help if you don’t want sex in the first place. With this book, patience, and practice, you can look forward to a sexual revival—and the comfort of knowing you’re unique but not alone.Whatever stage you’re at, Getting the Sex You Want will help you understand the cycles of interest and apathy over your lifetime and discover—or rediscover—the joys of your sexuality. Leiblum and Sachs have synthesized the latest research into women’s sexuality and desire with encouraging results. As warmly intimate as it is savvy, this clear, accessible, inviting guide includes the voices of dozens of women representing a vast array of experiences and opinions about sex. There’s a wealth of information and inspiration to help you reach your sexual potential, and good reasons why the effort is worth it.Part I examines women’s life cycles to map their journeys from one erotic destination to the next, from the blossoming of sexual interest in childhood and adolescence, through the reproductive years, to the fire-and-ice changes that go on throughout midlife and on into “highlife,” or older age. Part II is a tasting menu of new and different possibilities: cybersex, hormone treatment and medication, cosmetic and reproductive surgery, mind-body practices, therapy, and more that will help you take control to want the sex you get—and get the sex you want.

Seriously? Really? This helped people? You have got to be kidding me. I couldn't make it to the second chapter without gagging or laughing. This book is ridiculous and it's a wonder two women wrote it. 'Men don't play with their daughter during or after puberty because they're attracted to them'. That is the grossest dumbest thing I've ever heard. At worst, most men are just trying to avoid any awkward brush of new breasts or anyone thinking they are inappropriate. That line was really unnecessary and I don't care to read anything else from people who would think that way. It kills me what these Dr.'s think they know. I've learned more hiding under the kitchen table to listen to adult conversations as a kid and the women in my family with many diverse views on sex. Take it from me, someone not even that experienced, this is a real nothing new book that gives you information you could learn from listening to your female and male friends, reading Cosmo, watching Oprah or just having plain common sense. I'm just glad this book was borrowed and not paid for.
This book conveys hope, understanding and specific ways to increase pleasure. The inclusion of experiences of women at all life stages made the book readable and accessible. As a woman going through menopause, the most helpful chapters for me were a discussion of women in midlife, cosmetic surgery ("will it make you sexier?") and "how to spark desire." The chapters on cybersex and new medications to enhance sex were also very informative and interesting.
I have read several books by Judith Sachs and find this one the best so far!! "Healing Power of Sex" changed my life and saved my marriage. This book opened my eyes to further enhancements to our love and sex life. "Getting the Sex you Want" has helped me to cope with past issues, heal sexually and enable me to be free to express my needs/desires and explore the pleasure of my body and spirit! A must read!!!
this book provides no new information. It's riding on the heels of other books detailing the complex nature of female sexuality and response. Do yourself a favor and save your money. You'd learn more reading the cover stories of NY Times Magazine and Newsweek that dealt with all this material a year or two ago.
