Overview

Outstanding feminist scholars present seldom discussed women’s views of sexuality. In the past, there has been little feminist discussion among sexuality professionals and between feminist therapists and sex therapists. The valuable ideas expressed by the contributors to this book are aimed at increasing the possibilities for all therapists and counselors to discuss with their clients the nature of sexuality, and in particular, what women feel about sex. Professionals provide remarkable perspectives on issues that concern all women—orgasm, the double standard, new reproductive options, intimacy, bisexuality, and more.

Feminist scholars present seldom discussed womens' views of sexuality, including the nature of sexuality, and in particular, what women feel about sex.
