No More Headaches: Enjoying Sex and Intimacy in Marriage by Dr. Julianna Slattery

As a researcher, I have a dilemma. I can investigate and explain the starting points that women need to know about their husbands (for example, how much sexual affirmation transforms a man and his marriage), but then I must find others to help each woman go further. Yet it is hard to find good and trustworthy resources. This book hits the mark in a big way; I highly recommend it to anyone who needs real-world yet compassionate answers on how to handle the confusion, hurt, disappointments and just old-fashioned differences about this sensitive subject that affects every single marriage.
