More About Shameless by Pamela Madsen; Anne Adams
 
 
 
Overview

A funny, sexy, and wildly entertaining look at the rewards of fully realized desire in the life of one ordinary woman.

At 43 years old, Pamela Madsen was happily married to the man she fell in love with at 17. She was the mother of two sons and had a successful career as a nationally known advocate for fertility issues. But she felt a growing sexual restlessness and yearning that wouldn't let up. And though Pamela loved her husband and didn't want to have an affair, she knew deep down that she needed more, much more. In Shameless, she tells the story of how she found it and not only kept her marriage intact but made it stronger than ever.

In this fearless memoir, Pamela tells the story of her search for sexual, personal, and spiritual wholeness. She explores, in riveting detail, what she experienced at the hands of sexual healers, men who brought her untold pleasure (and became her close friends in the process).

But this is not just another sex book: Shameless is also an account of how Pamela's journey healed her issues with food and body image and most important, helped her weave the many roles that she played daughter, friend, partner, mother into one fully integrated person. It is a story about a woman falling in love with herself and a call to other women to do the same."

Like countless women her age, at 43 Madsen was juggling many roles (wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend), but despite a rich personal life and career as a nationally known advocate about fertility issues, she felt unfulfilled. Those feelings came to a head at a summer spa-day: as four companions, two of whom were having affairs, dished on their sexual escapades, Madsen felt left out in a way she hadn't before. The author, who'd been with her husband since age 15 (they married at 20), writes, "but an unnamed desire was there--rumbling, insistent, impolite, and, scariest of all, bubbling toward the surface." A chat with a gay friend who used erotic massage to fulfill his sensual needs--while staying faithful to his husband--was the turning point. As she explores and celebrates her sexuality, the author faces her body-image issues, and by year's end, she's restless again: she wants to tell her husband what she's been up to. New Year's Day brings a frank talk with Gavin, who joins her for a session with the "Tantric Tiger," but declines other adventures. Although not what she'd hoped, Madsen writes, "There is security in our love." In this daring, funny book, the author accepts herself and sets out to help others find fulfillment. (Jan.)
