Drawing on the results of her unique national sex survey—and on decades of clinical practice as a sex therapist—Gina Ogden offers a revolutionary exploration of women’s sexual experience. The best sex, say thousands of women, doesn’t just happen in the body. It is multidimensional, connecting body, mind, heart, and soul. In The Heart and Soul of Sex, Ogden coaches readers to fully realize the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual aspects of sex, making what she calls the “ISIS Connection.” Throughout the book are firsthand stories of survey respondents, offering examples of how ordinary women from ages eighteen to eighty-six have found their own way to sexual expression.


“In this provocative, important book, Ogden functions as a gentle, persistent guide in mapping out paths that women can take to locate their sexual ‘center,’ where healing, ecstasy, and transformation occur.”—Publishers Weekly, starred review

“Gina Ogden is a master therapist and teacher. Her research redefines ways we can discuss sexual issues with our clients and patients. She offers a holistic, non-performance-based model that cracks open old beliefs, unearths fresh emotions, and carves out paths for healing and awakening sexual spirits.”—Patti Britton, Ph.D., cofounder of Sex Coach University and former president of the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors, and Therapists

“This is a glorious book. Gina Ogden speaks directly to the heart of sexuality in a way that women all over the world will recognize. To read this book is to remember and reawaken to the melody of the life force that both created and sustains our bodies and lives. May this book soar—and take us all with it!”—Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of Women’s Bodies, Women’s Wisdom and Mother-Daughter Wisdom

“Gina Ogden has a keen sense of the complexities of our sexuality, and she knows how to take you there and back. The Heart and Soul of Sex offers insights, tools, and resources to help therapists bypass the tempting surface issues and get to the core.”
—Esther Perel, author of Mating in Captivity: Unlocking Erotic Intelligence
