Middle age and menopause don't have to mean your sex life is impaired or worse, over.

But there can be additional challenges such as vaginal dryness, loss of libido, fatigue, even embarrassment over body changes that make us feel less than sexy. 

Our Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Rebecca Dunsmoor-Su, spends a lot of time at her practice helping women regain their vibrant sex lives, and one thing she does is recommend books by Dr. Laurie Mintz, particularly A Tired Woman's Guide to Passionate Sex

In this podcast, Dr. Dunsmoor-Su got to chat directly with Dr. Mintz about all the things that can dampen the spark and how to reignite it.

Dr. Laurie Mintz is a licensed psychologist in private practice and a tenured Professor at the University of Florida, where she teaches the Psychology of Human Sexuality to hundreds of undergraduate students each year.

Dr. Mintz has published over 50 research studies in academic journals and six chapters in academic books. She has received numerous professional and teaching awards. She is a Fellow of the American Psychological Association, indicating that her work has had a positive national influence on the field of psychology. 

Dr. Mintz is also the author of two popular press books—both written with the aim of empowering women sexually: Becoming Cliterate: Why Orgasm Equality Matters and How to Get It  and A Tired Woman’s Guide to Passionate Sex: Reclaim Your Desire and Reignite Your Relationship.
