Abstract:

Fifty percent of women have put off sex-even when they're in the mood-because they felt too fat. Women of all shapes and sizes share an alarming anxiety: a body image that's causing conflict in their relationships. This book will help women reconnect with their sensual selves and put them back on the path to greater intimacy. Not Tonight Dear, I Feel Fat reveals: Your weight isn't the problem, it's the perception of your weight. Regardless of size, women with negative body image reported much lower arousal levels that those with positive self-judgments (Study: Rutgers University). Women consistently overestimate their body size, often by 25% or more (Study: Ohio State University). Women also vastly overestimate how thin men want them to be. When women are asked to select their ideal body shape from a range of options, their preferences are universally thinner than shapes men pick (Study: Journal of Abnormal Psychology). You'll also find--Innovative advice that quiets the mind enough to enhance desire, Sexual anchoring techniques (The 25% Factor) that increase receptivity to sex, Stories from real women struggling with bedroom body consciousness.
