Take a new look at women’s sexuality!

This fascinating book looks at the wide-ranging therapeutic, social, and political implications of the new paradigm of women’s sexuality. International in scope and multidisciplinary in approach, A New View of Women’s Sexual Problems examines the theoretical and practical effects of the landmark document produced by the Working Group on a New View of Women’s Sexuality. The book brings together gender theory, psychology, social science, and medicine in a powerful cultural critique of the reigning medical approach to women’s sexual health. International experts from India, Costa Rica, Israel, the US, and many other cultures place this revolutionary idea in cultural and political context, as well as extrapolating fresh new treatment options for dealing with women’s sexual problems.

A New View of Women’s Sexual Problems analyzes the new paradigm’s implications in many fields, including:
family medicine
couples counseling for straight and lesbian partners
STD prevention and sexual health issues
sex therapy
sex education
feminist theory
developmental psychology
Reviews: “PROVIDES SEARING EVIDENCE of how right-wing anti-sex-ed efforts ultimately harm women.”
The Nation

“TIMELY, READABLE, PASSIONATE. . . . A PROVOCATIVE AND WELCOME ALTERNATIVE to the current Viagra-flavored discussions of sexual function and dysfunction. . . . ADDS RICH UNDERSTANDING TO WOMEN'S SEXUALITIES. In a comprehensive, fascinating chapter, Tiefer traces how the medicalization of male sexual dysfunction and pharmaceutical industry economic power led to FDA approval and marketing of Viagra, and how these forces shape the discourses and search for 'cures' for female sexual dysfunction.”
Psychology of Women Quarterly

“ESSENTIAL READING FOR EVERY SEXUAL AND RELATIONSHIP THERAPIST. A compelling feminist critique of American sex education, therapy, and research. . . . Makes a persuasive case for the adoption of a revolutionary new view of women's sexuality.”
Sexual & Relationship Therapy

“A MUST-READ for therapists and clinicians planning to help women with their relationships or sexual satisfaction, for sex educators at all levels, and for all who want to understand what women want in terms of sexual experience. . . . COULD BE USED AS A PRIMARY TEXT for a course on female sexuality and would be A WONDERFUL ANCILLARY TEXT for college and graduate courses on human sexuality.”
AWP Newsletter

“INCISIVE, INSIGHTFUL, INNOVATIVE. I appreciated every essay individually, and taken together the collection is BRILLIANT IN ITS CLARITY. The argument presented against medicalization and for a contextualized view of female sexuality is multi-layered, multicultural, and multifaceted. A MUST READ for every physician who ever writes a prescription for a drug or devise to enhance sexual function in women, for therapists and clinicians planning to help women with their relationships or sexual satisfaction, for sex educators at all levels, and for all individuals who want to understand what women want in terms of sexual experiences. . . . COULD BE USED AS A PRIMARY TEXT for a course on female sexuality and would be a wonderful ancillary text for college and graduate courses on sexuality.”
Maureen C. McHugh, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Indiana University of Pennsylvania; Coordinator, Association for Women in Psychology

“This exciting book is A MUST READ FOR ALL COLLEGE HUMAN SEXUALITY COURSES, sexual health care providers, and those conducting research on women's sexuality. . . . Points out that there is so much more to women's sexuality that is identified in the new medicalized approach to women's sexual problems. . . . Supports the importance of pleasure and satisfaction to women.”
Beverly Whipple, PhD, RN, FAAN, Professor Emerita, Rutgers University; Past-President, AASECT; Vice-President, World Association for Sexology, Medford, New Jersey
