Time Brings Out the Best In Women. If Only Men Realized…
Biologically speaking, middle age is a wasteland. Women (and reasonable men) are done breeding, but not ready for burying. Yet, especially for women, this is a great time of life. The satisfaction of launching a family is sweetened by time, money, and energy they can now spend on themselves. They may want male company, but they no longer need a mate.
Middle-aged men will find no better companions than these self-reliant, contented, and, not coincidentally, sexually adventurous women. But, handicapped by eyes that focus only on youth, many men cannot see them.
What is to be done? This book is based on extensive accounts of more than twenty women who reentered the world of romance and sex in midlife. Many expressed frustration and disillusionment. But there is also much triumph. This time around, some know how to choose men more wisely. Some prefer a smaller male footprint in their lives. Others make revolutionary changes in lifestyles, including dominance and submission, sadomasochism, and polyamory—all graphically recounted. By casting off decades of sexual propriety, they feel that they have at last become who they really are.
During nine years of research, the author, challenged and inspired by the women whose lives he was following, underwent his own intimate revolution. It was a rare literary premium.
