Night Thoughts is the groundbreaking collection of essays that covers the new, the unspoken and the unknown about sexuality.
Psychiatrist Avodah K. Offit was at the forefront of understanding and describing the psychological basis of human sexuality, and was a heralded mainstay with magazines like Glamour, Vogue, and Self.The book’s critical success was represented by The New York Times reviewer who called it “wonderful, strewn with wisdom and insight.” The New Republic magazine called Dr. Offit the “Montaigne of human sexuality.”
Her pioneering work is represented by topics she explores in these essays that cover subjects like morning sex, which she describes as a good way to stimulate the heart. Her observations are invariably related to contact with patients. Can multiple orgasms scare away a lover, one patient asks? Extramarital affairs?–Offit reasons that six out of ten couples she treats are engaged in outside lovemaking. Her candid yet knowledgeable observations treat matters like menstruation and sex, failure to ejaculate, and sex during pregnancy.
In all, Offit’s essays are like a conversation about the topics that we have all wondered about but had no one to talk to about them.
