Ladies’ Libido…a slippery creature indeed!

I would like to share some wonderful resources for women who are seeking that elusive creature: libido, or sex drive.

You may find these resources useful for your libido if you:

  • Have noticed that your libido has dropped
  • Have never really felt much with sex
  • Are motivated to improve your libido and your sensation with sex

The V Book – A Doctor’s Guide to Complete Vulvovaginal Health by Elizabeth G Stewart

This is a must for any woman who is not sure what’s what ‘’downstairs’’. It very clearly takes you through the anatomy of the vulva and helps you become familiar with that part of your body that is often lacking in attention and awareness!

The following three on this list are more like ‘’workbooks’’. They are designed to be worked through, not just read!

Becoming Orgasmic by Julia Heiman

Despite its slightly cheesy title, this is an all-time ‘’classic’’ in women’s sexuality. It helps you explore the reasons that may be stopping you from experiencing ideal sexual pleasure and libido.

The Elusive Orgasm by Vivienne Cass

In no way all about orgasm, this is a more modern book written by a psychologist and sex therapist doctor that is easy to read and very non-intimidating. A great one to start with to bring back your lost libido.

Women’s Anatomy of Arousal by Sheri Winton

This was awarded Book of the Year in 2010 by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists. It really is a tremendous book that brings many age-old ‘’secrets of sexuality’’ and libido from Eastern traditions into the mainstream, in a way that is humourous, irreverent, and easy-to-read. Highly recommended to share with your partner.

Don’t forget to check your local library for these books. Otherwise, they are easily accessible on

If sex hurts, it is often more than just libido that is the issue. I have written a lot about painful sex, but a good place to start is with my blog posts on ten reasons sex hurts, and five sources of painful sex.
