How do any of us navigate the new world of romantic relationships and sex? Anyone who’s ever had his or her heart broken by a promising new partner or who has fumbled through a casual hookup will relate to Don’t Sleep with Him Yet, a much-needed, groundbreaking book written by Beverly Hills clinical psychologist Dr. Nancy Lee. Having helped countless women with every dating and relationship issue imaginable (and then some), Dr. Lee clearly demonstrates how to let go of self-doubt to finally find the fulfilling romantic relationship you desire and deserve.
Awaken your “inner badass”:
Stand your ground while you do you. In the process you’ll attract men, enjoy romance and ultimately realize true emotional intimacy. And that’s just for starters. Don’t Sleep with Him Yet covers topics ranging from the murky area of sexual consent, to what constitutes great sex for you both (including when to say “yes”). You’ll also discover what drives the psychological allure of the unavailable, why players quickly get bored with a women after sex, and how narcissistic men use emotional manipulation to keep their partners down. It’s not just about finding a partner that truly values you, but about being happier within; Dr. Lee’s life lessons are as empowering as they are practical.
Focusing on the power of choice as both liberating and key, Dr. Lee discusses an exciting new “bedroom feminism” where “a woman can say no just as confidently as she can say yes.” In other words, “free” is not the same as “empowered.” She also explains that after yielding to social pressures to behave too much like men, many women are presently experiencing “hookup fatigue.” Equally groundbreaking is the psychologist’s discussion of how the “trickle-down effect” of both #MeToo and Time’s Up movements may finally stop women from “self-doubting themselves into silence even when it comes to consensual relationships, whether with a new love interest or longtime love.”
Dr. Lee’s Don’t Sleep with Him Yet boldly covers topics that other dating books won’t touch: “railroaded” or coercive sex, physical attraction, sexual satisfaction, dating apps, appearance. Says Dr. Nancy Lee, “A millennial’s “no,” or any other woman’s for that matter, needn’t come with an apology when it involves access to our precious bodies.”

ASK DR. LEE
Why aren’t any of the guys I meet interested in serious relationships?
This new man I’m seeing is wonderful, should I sleep with him now or
I knew it was just a hookup—so why do I keep checking my phone for a
text from him?
If I wasn’t into it, why hadn’t I told him to stop?
