Author Biography


I'm Dr. Susan Edelman. I'm a psychiatrist and an Adjunct Clinical Associate Professor at Stanford.

Over the last 29 years of private practice, I've realized a dangerous trend. Despite advances, women across generations still struggle with having a voice and standing up for themselves. We think it's getting better, but it's not.

That same struggle is why they don't get what they want from men. It's painful, and in many cases, it stops them from getting what they want out of life.

My patients deserve better--and this is not just a problem for my wonderful patients. It's global, and we need a new revolution to create change.

That's why I wrote this book. I want to support the women who will never walk through my office door yet need a helping hand.

Be Your Own Brand of Sexy by Susan L. Edelman, MD. is about the next sexual revolution. The first sexual revolution promised women more choices, enabled them in expressing themselves better and blew an air of liberation, but cultural limitations today still hinder women’s choices. Permissible dating behavior and levels of intimacy are some of the more obvious areas needing change. When women, as a result of the first revolution, did let go of the old constrictions, they in fact ended up replacing the old ones with even more impracticable demands, a sexual imagery highly taxing as well as impractical. Gone also are the identifiable metaphors such as chivalry, courtship and others linked with romance. A casual look at the sales data of fictional romances of any reputable publisher can easily show to what degree women have been missing this in their lives, and how they are always trying to compensate through these imaginary creations.

Be Your Own Brand of Sexy by Susan L. Edelman, MD. examines this quandary and offers certain solutions to encourage each woman to decide what’s best for her, regardless of cultural expectations. Rather than attempting another revolution which might end up in more shackles, Susan implores women to maintain their own Brand of Sexy, realize that women are beautiful in their differences, and reject the totally unrealistic sexual imagery they are constantly bombarded with. This is a thorough study on the many facets of womanhood; almost all the social transactions analyzed are easily identifiable in daily life.
