Well, I'm reading it. I'm about halfway through.  So far I've identified with my libid0 type and identified my DH's type.  I've just gotten to the part of the book where the work starts.  I'm not very optimistic though, she pretty much says that if both partners aren't willing to work at it, that there isn't much to be done.  ($10.99 wasted...not surprised really) What has been nice is that she clearly says that there isn't anything wrong or unusual about me and my sexual response to the situation.  It's actually pretty common, by what I am reading.  I'll check in later when I finish reading and let you know if I think any real progress can be made.

" It's actually pretty common, by what I am reading. "


'tis the truth. The one and only thing to know about 'normal' is that it doesn't exist. Despite what uncivilized folks may say .... ;-)

Oh there is plenty about me that is unusual, but apparently my response to his reaction to the mismatch is fairly common.

and in other news. I finished that book. It's nice to know my type, and his type and all, but it really doesn't help at all. Starting on Schnarch next. New threads to follow, on our awful "talk" on Saturday night and on Schnarch.

I am a 50 year old woman with 2 marriages under my belt and now a live in partner. i know all about mis matched libidos!

all that being said, you would think that being 50 (51 in february), being in menopause and children growing up and out (one son in Afghanistan), that sex is not a consideration for me. but i am having the best of my life right now!

so good, that we wrote several books. one in particular is called Sexercize. visit our website at http://www.roundtuittaiji.com or facebook us at Roundtuit Body Shaper and Life Guides

i am a very real person. this is not a spam ad for a crap product. we practice everything we write about!
