The bestselling author of The Secret Lives of Wives offers a refreshingly straightforward guide to enjoying a long, satisfying sex life.
Women of the baby boomer generation know and trust Iris Krasnow as a writer who speaks candidly to the issues that concern them most. In the months following the publication of her most recent book, The Secret Lives of Wives , Krasnow addressed thousands of women, and she discovered that two subjects dominated her audiences' conversations: sex and change. Whether women are worried about marriage and divorce or illness and death, they're all asking: "How do I handle the shifts in my sexuality caused by these events?" Sex After . . . holds the answers to everything from regaining sexual confidence after childbirth and breast cancer to navigating the dating scene in senior communities.
As with all of Krasnow's books since her New York Times bestseller Surrendering to Marriage , the narrative is driven by real women's stories: raw, intimate, and, most importantly, true. Prescriptive, emancipating, and insightful, Sex After . . . addresses a range of circumstances, including what happens:
When you or your spouse doesn't want sex anymore After cancer, amputation, PTSD, or another illness maims the body If you come out of the closet at middle age When your marriage is damaged by adultery If you're dating again after twenty-five years with the same sexual partner When your husband is addicted to Viagra  
Filled with edgy and honest stories of carnal challenge and triumph from women of all backgrounds and life stages, Sex After . . . is Krasnow's signature take on Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Sex but Were Afraid to Ask-- during all of life's passages. Krasnow is a media and lecture tour favorite, and readers--whether in the heat of an initial can't-eat-can't-sleep attraction or rounding the corner to their sixtieth anniversary--will applaud her eye-opening perspectives on the one issue that can change lives for better or worse like nothing else.

Awful, awful, awful!
I would suggest you don't bother reading this self-indulgent collection of interviews of women who have coped with including sexuality during tough times. Krasnow puts herself across as a long time researcher of women's sexuality and author, but really, she's not good at either. Part of her agenda is promoting marriage as the end-all and be-all for couples in love... this creeps up again and again in her books. She summarizes what the women have said in the interviews in very vague terms, with a bias towards what is her opinion. She is neither a journalist nor expert on sexuality... witness her inclusion of her sex life (who cares...?!) in her books. There are better books about womens' sexuality in the 21st c... don't waste your time on this op-ed piece.
