How Female Sexuality Unfolds at Every Stage of Life
This third edition of Rhythms of Women’s Desire, is a provocative and informative book about female sexuality and life changes that will empower cisgender women to understand their sexuality in the context of an entire lifetime.
Author Elizabeth Davis’ focus on sexual changes over time is what makes this book unique; she gives insight into what is natural at each sexual stage and how it all fits together. This book envisages menarche (first menstruation), childbirth, and menopause as transformative, biological turning points and gives the reader a view of what these events have in common hormonally and psychologically.
The Rhythms of Women’s Desire is a frank, personal, and exciting journey into female sexuality and a helpful guide through every stage of life.
The new edition has been been updated to reflect the latest scientific research, including a deeper examination of post-menopausal and postpartum sexuality and the hormonal imbalances caused by xenoestrogens. Updates also include new information about the link between oxytocin, brainwaves, and intuition — and about how abortion, miscarriage, and other major losses can affect the desire for sex, with suggestions for healing and a worksheet for dealing with trauma and abuse issues.
Elizabeth Davis has been a midwife and women’s health care provider since 1978 and the director and clinical instructor of Heart and Hands Midwifery Intensives since 1983. She is the author of many successful books, including Heart and Hands, A Midwife’s Guide to Pregnancy and Birth, now in its third edition, and The Women’s Wheel of Life. She writes frequently for women’s and parenting magazines. She lectures and consults internationally to nurses, midwives, gynecologists, and obstetricians on women’s health, psychology and reproductive issues. She has three grown children and one grandchild, born at home. She makes her home on two acres in rural Northern California, with extensive flower and vegetable gardens. In her spare time she loves travel, hiking, snorkeling, and metaphysical studies.
