Stereotypes would have us believe that men are always in the mood for sex, forever hoping their dates and wives will say yes. But beyond the broad generalizations, what do women themselves say about sex and desire? What role does desire play in a couple’s life and what are the factors that affect a woman’s libido throughout her lifetime? Such questions intrigued Dr. Maureen Whelihan, a gynecologist and sex educator, and Anne Rodgers, a former newspaper reporter with a beat focused on women over the age of 45. Readers will be fascinated by this book filled with secret truths from women and how they view sexual desire across the decades of their lives. ANNE RODGERS is a former journalist whose 30-year career included stints at The Austin-American Statesman in Texas and The Palm Beach Post in Florida. She is a former features editor at both newspapers and a past member of the American Society of Sunday and Features Editors. She returned to her first love of writing in 2005, creating an innovative beat at The Palm Beach Post which focused on telling the stories of women over the age of 45. She writes with an engaging personal style that encourages readers to think of her as a friend, someone looking for the same answers and markers along a shared road.
