"Dr. Clayton lays bare hidden facets of female sexuality that are rooted in the psyche and can catapult a women either into a cathartic bout of ecstasy or against the headboard into yet another disappointment. Through case histories she explores why many women would rather put up with unsatisfying sex than tell their lovers how to please them; how buried feelings about childbearing can affect a woman's erotic potential; and why an orgasm you have during intercourse is no more "real" or legitimate than one you achieve through other means. Dr. Clayton also shines a light on sexual attitudes that have a dramatic impact on young girls and teens, and details how motherhood and menopause may affect but need not diminish a woman's capacity of sexual pleasure."--Book jacket.
