Modern women are amazing. High-powered careers, smart children, terrific partners, exciting friends, beautiful homes, financial savvy. They know how to manage big money (or budget to the penny, in these trying times), big responsibilities, and big orgasms with the partner of their choice - and all on their own terms. They really do have it all, right? As a sexuality counsellor and midwife, the women who come into Evelyn Resh's office completely debunk this 'have-it-all' myth: they're exhausted, frustrated, overextended wives and mothers who, for all intents and purposes, are miserable because they wish desperately that the life we think they're leading was the life they actually had. Many are so focused on getting jobs done - at the office and at home - that life's pleasures are a rarity. Many of them are also managing constant battles with their mate because of disparate appetites for sex, boredom with sex, or an inability to identify with the idea of its general importance to healthy living and a satisfying marriage. In this book, readers will learn how to reinvigorate their lust for life and for sex and find out how both depend on markers of emotional wellbeing we rarely think of as being precursors to pleasure of all kinds - sex included.
