Dr. Zoldbrod's Newest Book Sex Talk: Uncensored Exercises for Exploring What Really Turns You On Links Sweet, Sexy Talk With Relationship Success (10/09/02)
Talk sexy, spicy, even raunchy to your lover and have a better sex life,
says Dr. Aline Zoldbrod, a nationally recognized best-selling author and sex
therapist. Dr. Zoldbrod almost promises orgasms where none before, or
better ones, and a far more engaging sexual life.
Dr. Zoldbrod even puts it in writing. Her newest book is Sex Talk:
Uncensored Exercises for Exploring What Really Turns You On, co-authored
with erotica writer Lauren Dockett.
Dr. Zoldbrod works with many couples who have what she calls "The Panda
Syndrome." They are couples whose sex life has come to a dead stop. Like
pandas, they are darling and friendly and cavort and play
beautifully together, but it is almost impossible to get them to mate," she
Zoldbrod's newest book is fun and is, perhaps, one of the sexiest mainstream
sex-help books ever written, teaching couples how to talk comfortably to
eachother about their deepest desires, using stories.
She notes that studies show that women who were moe able to talk about their
sexual needs had sex more often and were more orgasmic than women who were
verbally inhibited. "A survey of more than 100,000 married women determined
that the strongest indicator of marital and sexual satisfaction among women
was good sex talk with their mates," she notes.
Zoldbrod takes a long, satisfying look at how to foil fading sexuality.
Sex Talk explores and illustrates:
How you can create your own "disinhibition coach" to help you with
saucy sex talk.
How talking about your most shameful past sexual behavior can bring
you closer to your partner.
How gummy worms are a great sex aid.
How every man and woman who gets stuck sexually, whatever your
sexual orientation or age, can "Turn On, Tune In, with
Sweet, Sexy Sex Talk.
Why women should understand that getting to orgasm is a lot like
taking a Great Dane for a walk. (Honestly!!)
Zoldbrod, 54, is a high energy innovator whose ideas about developing
healthy sexuality have gained national attention. In Sex Talk she and Lauren
Dockett create an antidote to societal, cultural, and family based
repression of sexuality, encouraging readers to use sexy stories and
exercises to expand their ability to talk about sex and reach a higher
degree of pleasure.
Zoldbrod graduated Phi Beta Kappa with Highest Honors in
Sociology and Anthropology from Oberlin College during the height of the
sexual revolution. However, her comfort with the topic of sex probably was
most influenced by her parents' liberalism, particularly her mother's.
