Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(6), 530. Reviews the book, The Sexually Healthy Woman by Abby Stitt (1978). This book is written to all women. The author has produced a volume that is, in many ways, reminiscent of a long conversation between women friends. The author's primary theme seems to be that each woman should feel comfortable with herself and with her sexual conduct. In stressing the woman's own comfort and self-knowledge, the author gives her readers facts as a means to achieve this ease. She deals well with myths about menstruation and sex, vaginal versus clitoral orgasm, simultaneous orgasm, and'vaginal size. Unfortunately, she seems to bolster indiscriminately other old wives' tales. In general, I feel that this book is a commendable attempt to help the author's “sisters” enjoy the sexual health that she implies is now hers.
