Overview

A frank and spicy guide to finding deeper sexual satisfaction-written by a media-friendly author and sex columnist

Since the hardcover publication of What Your Mother Never Told You About Sex (Putnam, 2002), Dr. Hilda Hutcherson has reached millions of women through her two appearances on The Oprah Winfrey Show, her popular monthly columns in Glamour and Essence, and other media exposure-in addition to book sales of more than 70,000 copies in hardcover and trade paperback combined. Now Dr. Hilda has written what she calls "a sexier sex book"-an accessible, tell-it-like-it-is guide that goes beyond the basics to answer the questions women across the country are asking-about overcoming anxiety and insecurities in bed, trying new sex positions (and diplomatically retiring some old ones), spicing things up with games, toys, and fantasies, and more. Written in the tone of a supportive and savvy friend who just happens to be a top sex expert, and featuring fifty instructive illustrations, Pleasure covers:

- redefining pleasure: why the quest for female orgasms is overhyped-and how to relax and truly enjoy sex, with or without them;
- exploring the female body's pleasure zones;
- communicating with a partner about what feels good (and what doesn't);
- Sex Positions 101 . . . and 201; and a lifetime of pleasure: great sex after pregnancy, after fifty, and beyond.

Encouraging, empowering, and an entertaining read, Pleasure is the ultimate guide for any woman who wants to break out of old inhibitions and more fully enjoy her sex life, whether she's in a budding new relationship or a long-term marriage that's already stood the test of time.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Gynecologist Hutcherson struck a nerve with the deservedly well-received What Your Mother Never Told You About S-e-x and now offers a "sexier sex book" in response to reader requests. But her new approach waters down her original classic, replacing invaluable detail with less capable material about gaining sexual confidence and the psychological and emotional penumbra of sex for women. With too much crammed into too few pages, her woman's anatomy/physiology chapter is not as good as in the first book, and her special topic chapters (e.g., "Sex After Marriage," "Passion and Parenthood") don't cover their topics adequately. Most tellingly, the birth control and safe sex material has been cut in half. It would have been better to have updated and expanded the original. Buy it instead of this book.
