For women who want to love men, but not too much, Judith Sills provides a balanced recipe. Breathe a sigh of relief: this is not a lesson on how to serve or please men more. True to her feminist roots, Sills insists that love should never include tolerating sexist politics or overlooking abuses and injustices. In order to love men more and need them less, Sill teaches women how to be yogis--maintaining a firm grip on their voices, needs, and desires, while also finding the flexibility to truly love and accept the men in their lives.
