'My friends and I moaned about how tired we were. During dips in our conversation, I found myself looking at the teenage couple seated at a table, their chairs side by side. They kissed. My friend asked me about my marriage. "Are you guys havingsex?" she asked bluntly. I wanted to laugh.'

Women today have more choices than ever before, yet many women find themselves angry, dissatisfied, stressed out. Why are they dissatisfied? And what do they really want? These questions form the premise of this passionate, provocative, funny, searingly honest book in which twenty-six women invite readers into their lives, minds, and bedrooms to talk about the choices they've made, their relationships, families, frustrations and hopes.
