Making Love Again
by Virginia and Keith Laken
[from book & jacket]
"In Making Love Again, Virginia and Keith Laken describe in intimate
detail their struggle with impotence. It is their struggle, even though
it is Keith's impotence. Together they recount the various treatments,
the anxious moments and the false hopes, the good sex and the
bad, the cures that weren't. And they report the corresponding rise
and fall of their relationship - all with such unreserved honesty that
the book is a genuine page-turner."
"A remarkable story for both patients and physicians ... Virginia
and Keith Laken describe what so many must feel when facing the
same challenges. Their frank descriptions ... have allowed us all to
gain insight into how one can face, cope with, and overcome the
fears associated with this condition."
David Barrett, M.D.
Chief Executive Officer
"Making Love Again is an eloquent book that adds to a small but
important force in literature about sex in the real world ... Virginia
and Keith Laken have courageously offered their story so that others may learn what a 'real' couple has done to keep intimacy alive, despite the realities of sexual dysfunction. May reading about their healing help speed your own."
Bob Burns Producer/Director

"This necessary book will help patients and
their lovers face problems, identify solutions
that work for them and transcend despair. It

patients' experience, be alert to their needs
and be quicker to provide professional
