"Sex can be just gorgeous—and sometimes it is the most beautiful thing that can happen between a man and a woman. But don't you also think that it can be just practical? Like when you're hungry and don't want a three-course meal with wine, music, and ambience; you just want a sandwich. You don't love the sandwich. You don't hate the sandwich.

A well-written book by a sex researcher who re-enters the dating world in her 50s.

A non jarring look at a sociologist's detailed sexual activities, while looking for a long term love. Not within a spiritual framework and very little mention of sexually transmitted diseases or dangers of casual sex. Expouses casual sex for women and tells how to do it as she learns to do it herself.

interesting read, just not sure that it really provides much in the way of practical advice. one to skim through and pass on to a friend.
Linera
brash, bold, and useful. just what I remember about her, from being on a panel with Pepper Schwartz many years ago.
