Breaking the Silence: Why Opening Up About Your Sex Life Is the Best Medicine for Your Health, Relationships, and Overall Happiness by Dr. Moshe Kedan provides a much-needed push to men and women on talking openly about sex, especially at times when this particular area in a couple’s relationship is tested by difficulties. Despite its proliferation in mainstream media, sex still remains taboo and men and women are still apprehensive about discussing it, particularly with their physicians. Dr. Kedan brings forty-five years of experience in providing individualized care for his patients, now organized and easy to access in his book. His researched-backed perspectives delve into the reasons why physicians do not talk about sex with their patients, revealing his findings on why men and women find it difficult to open up to their doctors. It is a holistic approach that tackles the different aspects that can affect sexual performance and how communication plays a vital role in therapy.

Reading Breaking the Silence does not mean that you will instantly lose your inhibitions in talking about sex with your physician. However, this book does give you brilliant insights and reassurance in Dr. Moshe Kedan’s findings. It gives insight into your own behavior and that of your sexual partner, so if you are currently having issues with sex, now is the time to test the paradigm that Kedan outlines in Breaking the Silence. He provides case studies on how he integrates sex discussions with his patients that make you feel comfortable enough to consider it in your own therapy and personal life. It is an encouraging guide to a more fulfilling sex life, and isn’t that what everybody wants to achieve? If you agree, then this book has a transformational offer for you.
