Making Love Again
by Virginia and Keith Laken
About the book and authors
[from book jacket]
"After you stop making love
temporarily, how long does
it take until you slide into
When Virginia Laken asked herself this
question, her marriage was suffering. She
and her husband Keith felt distanced from
each other by a lack of sexual intimacy.
While a radical prostatectomy had saved
Keith's life from prostate cancer, it had also
taken away his ability to get an erection.
And neither partner knew how to make their
love life "right" again.
In their ground-breaking book, this very real
couple offers the true and incredibly candid
story of how they regained physical intimacy
after sexual dysfunction. Anyone who has
ever felt such a loss will benefit from the
lessons Virginia and Keith learned along
Most importantly, the couple discovered,
it's not erections that allow men and women
to be intimate - it's an understanding of
the need for a safe and nonjudgemental
place where mutual physical pleasure and
emotional care can flourish.
