Just wanted to say that for me, this book was superb. It answered many questions (some I didn't know I had!) and I've come out a better (more satisfied) woman.

I know this is a brief review, but I wanted to pass on my positive thoughts.

I'm grateful for this book! 4 Jun. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I just finished reading this book last night. When I first picked it up and read the first few chapters, I was so engrossed that I couldn't put it down. Within the first few pages I felt like the author was addressing me personally. Before this book I really thought I was the only woman on planet Earth that couldn't have an orgasm and I felt very uncomfortable sharing this problem with anyone for fear that I'd be told that I was a freak of nature and would need to be shot to be put out of my misery. I was so relieved to find that there was actually a whole book written about this problem and that I was not alone.
Some readers here have commented that certain sections of the book are outdated, especially the parts that deal with the distorted ways that women are brought up to view sex, but believe me, there are still a lot of us out there that were brought this way and I'm only 28. Cultural and religious background may have a big impact on this. I had a Hispanic, Catholic upbringing. But this book never speaks to a specific type of woman, it speaks to ALL women, in a warm, straighforward manner. The concept is that physiologically, we are all the same.
Indeed the one and only thing that I found quite disturbing about this book is in the Chapter on how to bring your children up to be sexually healthy. It straight up says it's okay to have sexual feelings and fantasies about your children, just don't act upon those feelings. I'm not a psychologist but that doesn't sound right to me. I think someone who has those thoughts and feelings towards a child, no matter whose they are, probably has some other sexual issues and should seek some professional help!
Other than that, I can honestly say this book changed me. I gradually felt a difference in my attitude towards sex, which has made me a happier person in general. I don't feel angry and resentful towards sex as I used to. I would recommend this book to any woman who feels anxiety or stress towards sex. At the very least you should give it a shot, it's an easy read. I'm not done going through the exercises in this book but I am grateful just for the fact that it has changed my views on sex and has made me so comfortable with my sexuality and femininity.

Long live the clitoris! 7 Jun. 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Originally published in 1975 during the height of the womens lib movement, this is THE classic text to help women understand their own sexual response and become orgasmic - with or without a partner. This book has the potential to cause a revolutionary shift in the consciousness of women who persist in believing that the penis is king, i.e., that women can only have orgasms with the assistance of a thrusting male member. Wrong, wrong, WRONG. The penis is NOT a necessary condition for female orgasm. Barbach notes in the opening chapter that "minor surgery can be performed on the inner two thirds of the vagina without an anesthetic." So in reality, it is the clitoris and not the vagina that is the female sex organ. The clitoris exists purely to provide women with sexual pleasure. It's funny how the clitoris is no where near the vaginal opening. Nature's little joke? Perhaps. The message of Dr. Barbach's book: women, take responsibility for your own sexual pleasure, and don't wait around for the "Magic Penis" or "Mr. Right" to give you that elusive orgasm.

Thank God for this book!!! 13 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I read this book in the late 1970's and because of it have gone on to lead a "normal" sex life. She tells it like it is; the title got me because of an abusive partner--abusive emotionally and uneducated in the ways of sex. I decided that I could "do this for myself" as the title indicated and DID! If it had not been for the information in this book, we might have been divorced--or worse I would have been in some institution!! It is a great book for achieving the female orgasm. It may not be needed by all, but probably IS needed by more than most men will admit AND by more women who don't even KNOW their lives can be changed. Believe me, honey, you are NOT frigid as you've been told! Read the book!! Thank you, Lonnie Barbach!!

Very informative! 10 Jan. 2007
By Christine Jacobs - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is very informative. It answered a lot of questions that I had about female sexuality--the kind of questions I don't even feel comfortable asking my close female friends about. I had never experienced an orgasm prior to reading this book, and I didn't think it would ever happen for me--I thought I was inorgasmic. This books points out that I was pre-orgasmic--and what do you know, I was about halfway into the book when I crossed over. I am now able to orgasm fairly regularly!

Your not crazy 24 Feb. 2006
By Lolly - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was a very informative and helpful book. It tells you all the things you wanted them to tell you, but they didn't, in that sex-ed class we all have in school. Has great ideas for learning to grow as a person by realizing that everyone has sexual wants and desires, it is normal. I think men should read it too.
