Overview

Whether your problem is lack of desire, difficulty with sexual functioning, sexual pain, sexual addiction, anxiety, sexual inhibition, or fear of sexuality altogether, your life growing up as a child in your family may be partly to blame. Fully a third of us grew up in homes where our sexual development was terribly derailed, due to alcoholism or drug abuse, mental illness, witnessing spousal abuse, experiencing physical, emotional or sexual abuse, or just plain neglect. For others of us, the family problems were so subtle we never recognized them.

Sex Smart is the award-winning book praised by America's top sexologists as an essential guide for understanding your sexual self and solving your problems.

"Sex Smart is a wonderfully written, clear account of the many factors that shape and influence our sexual selves. Unlike most self-help books, which focus on aspects of sexual performance, Dr. Zoldbrod takes a broad, integrative view. With great skill and warmth, she weaves a tapestry of complex non-sexual events in our past that determine the ways in which we relate sexually. Complemented by rich clinical vignettes, her book will be welcomed by those wishing to understand the nuances and mysteries that contribute to our sexual being."

--Derek C. Polonsky M.D., Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School; Executive Council Member, Society for Sex Therapy and Research; author,TalkingAbout Sex.

Highly recommended in professional journals:

--Contemporary Sexuality, American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists, 2005, reviewed by Sally Valentine, Ph.D.

--Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy, 2005, reviewed by Ursula Ofman, Psy.D.
