DARING TO DESIRE
What Your Mother Couldn’t Tell You About Sex
This book will help women to feel more satisfied with who they are, to be happier and feel whole and capable of living life on their own terms. It will help men to better understand the women they love. Dr. Danièle Flaumenbaum writes from the crossroads of gynecology, Chinese medicine and transgenerational therapy. She explains how women today build their sexuality, the role mothers play, and how to embrace pleasure and desire. She asks hard questions: What are we really asking from our partners? Who are we really loving? Most of all, though, she explains how to wake up and understand the workings and power of your own sexuality and how desire can change your life.
“Sexuality is the privilege of adulthood, which begins with adolescence, developing throughout the rest of your life and requiring adjustment with each new cycle of maturity. It is a journey, which means there is departure, separation from the known in order to open up to the unknown. In sex, the scenery changes as you enter new landscapes: there are new colors, new sensations, new music, new languages. The journey of sex involves taking the time to appreciate and take in this new richness, growing stronger, fuller, more and more completely yourself. The more the pleasure of the sexual journey is made part of your life, the more you benefit, the more energized you feel. It is a path to fulfillment and getting the most out of life.” —Dr. Danièle Flaumenbaum

“If you really want to understand where desire and pleasure come from to experience them fully, this is the book for you.”
“This is the best book I have ever read about women. The pleasure of discovery mixes with stupefaction page after page. It shows how far we still have to go to become a liberated woman in both the public and private spheres. This is a disturbing book. Danièle Flaumenbaum is a pioneer. Her essay is, in and of itself, a small revolution.”
