Many women are worried-not for themselves but for their partners. They are afraid that the physical changes that accompany growing older will take an emotional toll on their loved ones. Dr. Keesling explains exactly what changes to expect and reveals how many of these art-misperceived as negative when they are actually positive-once you are prepared to approach them with information and insight. We live in a fast-paced society, where not getting there quicklyenough often means losing out. This is not the case with lovemaking: Slowing down truly enhances your sex life. All Night Long is the perfect guide to educate, reassure, and reinvigorate anyone's love life, and for those boomers who are wondering what happens next, All Night Long supplies the answer: It just gets better!

Library Journal Review

Here's another title in the gush of "boomer's and older" sex books within the last few years. Keesling, a sex therapist for ten years and the author of several other sex manuals, focuses not on illnesses associated with aging that affect sex but on coping with the normal and gradual decline in the speed and intensity of male sexual response. Se prescribes two approaches for women partners: firstly, find the advantages in your man's sexual changes and use them to improve your sex life together; secondly, work with your main in a series of exercises to enhance circulation to his genital area and to increase his sexual sensitivity. Her warm and colloquial approach makes a sense for enhancing intimacy as well as sexual response. A short appendix reviews methods for treating true, organic impotence. Although illustrations would have been useful, this is a fine book and is recommended to complement more medical works like Williamson's Great Sex After 40.-Martha Cornog, Philadelphia, PA (c) Copyright 2010.
