What is the connection between a woman’s sex drive as she ages and the degree of relationship intimacy and spirituality? What does spiritual connectedness and sex have in common? Could the dots be connected?
Dr. Susan Hardwick-Smith thoughtfully answers these questions and more based on her own personal experiences with menopause and over 20 years of experience as an award-winning gynecologist in Houston, Texas. A woman’s best life, including her sexual life, doesn’t have to end at 50, 60 or 70. The truth is, it has the potential to grow richer and fuller with every moment. Sexually Woke will help women navigate this new stage of life while remaining vibrant, connected, and sexually satisfied.
- Part I discusses Dr. Susan’s findings from her research into middle-age sexuality and includes chapters on the various impacts middle age can have on women; how they traditionally have been advised to deal with it; and presents examples of new approaches.
- In Part II, Dr. Susan explores difficult and topical issues such as sexual abuse, the effect of the #Metoo movement, marital rape, sex and religion, as well as thought provoking issues regarding our own individual conditioning around sex.
- Part III features how some women have learned to overcome the negative impacts of middle age and open themselves up to a new chapter in their life, one that promises to be more fulfilling and rewarding than their past.
No longer the secret knowledge of a few outliers, this path to deep sexual connection and satisfaction is available to anyone who is ready to commit and willing to embark on the journey.
