Research shows that many people are having less sex, and those who do have a lot, enjoy it less. Click the button below to read an excerpt and start finding pleasure once again.
Dr. Nan Wise is a neuroscientist, certified sex therapist, board certified clinical hypnotherapist, and certified relationship specialist with three decades of experience. Driven by an intense desire to understand how the brain operates to create moods and behaviors, Dr. Nan returned to academia in 2009 to pursue a Ph.D. in cognitive neuroscience at Rutgers-Newark where she completed her dissertation project, “Genital Stimulation, Imagery, and Orgasm in Women: an fMRI Analysis” in August of 2014. Her research attempts to address gaps in the scientific literature regarding the neural basis of human sexuality, and continues to garner international attention.
