"The most comprehensive book on women's sexual health I have ever read. The clear, positive information and the suggested exercises cover all aspects of women's sexuality and offer ways for women to take charge of their sexual selves. The second edition features new information and resources, offered in a supportive and affirming manner, which will help readers develop sexual comfort, confidence, and satisfaction. A 'must read' for women of all ages."
- Beverly Whipple, PhD, RN, FAAN, coauthor of The G Spot

"The second edition of Sex Matters for Women will allow me to quietly retire my tattered and worn copy of the first edition. I have lent this superb book to dozens of the women I have treated."
- Sheryl A. Kingsberg, PhD, Professor of Reproductive Biology and Psychiatry, Case Western Reserve University

"This second edition takes a classic book on female sexuality to another level. It is comprehensive and grounded in research, yet fun to read alone or with a partner. With a focus on female sexual satisfaction and pleasure, this book is a 'must have' for women of all ages and backgrounds. I can't wait to share it with my daughter!"
- Hilda Hutcherson, MD, author of What Your Mother Never Told You About Sex

"This is my favorite book on women's sexuality and sexual health! In the second edition, the authors respond to new research and deliver an up-to-date, even more enlightening book that emphasizes the positive. It's an empowering guide that you can fully rely on for accurate information and useful exercises for sexual growth. I especially love how the book celebrates female sexuality in its many diverse forms."
- Pamela H. Stephenson-Connolly, PhD, author of Sex Life

"This is a book you can trust. The authors obviously know and care a great deal about helping women have fulfilling sex lives. The first edition was terrific, and the updated second edition is even better."
- Pepper Schwartz, PhD, author of Prime: Adventures and Advice on Sex, Love, and the Sensual Years
