Editorial Reviews

Oncology Nursing Forum
"Excellent...an easy-to-read, candid book that could offer a great deal of understanding and help to couples experiencing erectile dysfunction."
Library Journal
Cancer survivor Alterowitz and his wife, Barbara, have revamped their The Lovin' Ain't Over: The Couple's Guide to Better Sex After Prostate Disease. As in the original edition, the authors rely on a team of researchers and medical/psychological consultants. Suitable for older and/or conservative couples, their well-organized text has no slang or graphics and cautious discussion of noncoital activities. The message: impotence offers an opportunity to revive intimacy through more sensual, romantic sex. The text focuses on FAQs regarding prostate surgery and impotence; learning to have satisfying, sensual sex; and devices, pharmaceuticals, and other products to enhance erections (e.g., combination and off-label drug therapies, herbal products, and dietary supplements). "Key Points" sections help orient readers, and the appendixes of treatments, manufacturers, resources, and reading matter are very good. But more about sex toys and outercourse techniques (e.g., sharing masturbation) could have been included. For public libraries, to be complemented by Virginia and Keith Laken's Making Love Again, which emphasizes psychological issues.-Martha Cornog, Philadelphia Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
