    Universal Truth

    This book does not reek of generic and insipid advice too often found in commercial, self-help books. Instead, Stendhal offers her advice gently and sincerely in this deeply personal guide. She narrates accounts of her sessions with lesbian couples who undergo a process to reach their full potential in their sexuality by communicating honestly and tenderly with one another. Their experiences embolden us, the readers of Stendhal's book, to rediscover sexuality in our own terms

    Sex, Truth, and LTRs

    Renate Stendhal has written a thoughtful and encouraging exploration of how love between women can endure and grow. Her answer sounds simple enough - Truth-telling keeps passion alive. But it¿s not so simple to tell the truth, because it¿s still not easy to love a woman in this day and age. Stendhal¿s acknowledged subtext is that women lovers have to shut out the mainstream culture in order to seek fulfillment, to be vulnerable and watch our unknown selves be revealed. She writes: ¿We work within a patriarchally formed and deformed language for love and sex... We have no language for the differentiated exploration of feelings linked to the body and the powerful emotions engendered by love and sex.¿ Stendhal discusses how lovers can create a shared language of desire and satiation, which will keep their fires burning. For everyone who has experienced what comedian Kate Clinton once coined the ¿lesbian bed death,¿ this book is a welcome antidote.
