Content descriptions

Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references.
Summary, etc.: 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
