A Message From Dr. DuBois About Sex Intimacy & Menopause – A Gynecologist’s Guide For Men
I wrote this book for men whose partners are going through menopause. And I hope that women will find this information about menopause to be helpful to them as well. As a board certified Ob/Gyn, I have been talking with women about their bodies and their sex lives for four decades and have talked with many of their partners along the way.
My intent is to help men understand what their partners are going through during menopause and to give them insight into how to be better partners. Typically, this translates into more intimacy – and yes, more and better sex.
“At last! A book for men that talks to men about sex, intimacy and menopause. I’m 76 and learned a lot and it’s delivered with humor, compassion and helpful examples. The Q&A’s add a nice, helpful dimension to this book. Buy one for you. Buy enough to start a guys’ discussion group. Good information well and thoughtfully presented.”
Throughout my time as an Ob/Gyn I learned a crucial lesson: hormones and techniques aren’t the secret to a good sex life. Sexual intimacy naturally wanes in most relationships after the first few years of “new lover passion” wears off. After this, intimacy tends to decline, along with the level of sexual activity. And as couples get older, the intimacy and sex often continue to decline.
But I also learned that this decline in intimacy in not inevitable. It can be revived. Intimacy is an essential ingredient for maintaining sweetness and romantic love in a relationship!
Let me guide you through the powerful trifecta that can have everything to do with intimacy and sex in your relationship:
- Physiologic changes that women and men go through during the menopausal years. As a couple, these changes can take you in opposite directions.
- Changes that you both may be going through at this time of life.
- The powerful impact of how you treat each other.
By following the practical approaches that I explain in this book you can take steps that will allow your relationship to become more intimate.
