    I read this book from cover to cover in a few days. It is well written in an easy to read conversational style. Dr. Corwin is a clinical psychologist who has written this book for the lay public but it would be helpful for clinicians as well. She is different than many writers on this topic in that she describes both the published academic research and clinical examples. She has made the research accessible to her audience with her easily understood descriptions of the findings. Her book makes many good points and covers relevant topics that contribute to sexual issues in couples including desire discrepancy,body image issues,sexual abuse issues, aging and hormones, fidelity and parenting. She gives many helpful techniques that are backed both by research and clinical cases to help a same-sex couples maintain their sexuality. The activities at the end of each chapter can help couples begin to be aware of their patterns and start talking more openly about the issues. I have been working with both straight and gay couples for years, have read most of the sex therapy material and was impressed by how much I learned that I had not known before. Great book!!

    Sexual Intimacy for Women is a compelling, well-written and researched look at many aspects of lesbian relationships, including the impact intimacy can have. The book is very readable including actual situations her ‘composite’ clientele have been faced with and how she helped them through their issues. We can all see ourselves in these pages. Excellent read for anyone in a relationship or hoping to be in one.

    Sexual Intimacy for Women is a must-read book, whether you’re just beginning to explore yourself sexually or whether you consider yourself more experienced. Dr. Corwin uses a combination of scientific evidence and clinical experience and examples to tackle some very difficult and private issues. Topics include body image, aging, fidelity issues, sexual abuse, lesbian parenthood, communication, and orgasm. Another beauty of the book is that the chapters pretty much stand on their own, so you can read them in any order you wish. At the end of every chapter is an area entitled “Your Turn,” in which Dr. Corwin puts forth thought-provoking questions that the reader can work through. Her style of writing is so easy and fluid that it’s like having a conversation with a very close friend!
