Review: Sex & Love at Midlife by Bernie Zilbergeld, Ph.D.

Is it really better than ever? Now that the children have grown and you have plenty of time on your hands, do you find that the love and intimacy is still as strong as ever or has it gone from your life?

In this honest, down-to-earth volume, Bernie Zilbergeld, well-known sex therapist and author of The New Male Sexuality (over 100,000 copies sold), draws on his many years of clinical experience to explain why we should be enjoying our love making and our intimacy even more as we mature. Replete with stories and anecdotes that present a variety of tools and techniques to help us develop the kind of openness we desire, he honestly tells us why age is no barrier to a better and more rewarding sex life.

It is a fact that as we mature, our sexual drives mature as well, but it is also a fact that while you may slow down and your lovemaking may be different, that doesn't mean that the quality has to be lower or your pleasure less. Meticulously researched, Dr. Zilbergeld presents evidence that a good number of men and women are having great sex in both their long and short-term relationships.

Received from the publisher for review.

This one gets three stars. It was no Laura Berman, but it was still good. Since it was written by a man it is perhaps a bit more for the male population. The rather lengthy interview excerpts were a bit tedious after a while, but informative. Overall, if you'd like to read about 40+ sex from a male perspective this is the book for you. Female readers may glean some insights but I'd really recommend a female author for them.

★★☆☆ = Liked It
