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.… (més)

I was so disconnected from Madsen for the bulk of this book because she kept insisting that she loved her husband and yet she kept him at an unforgivable distance for months while she wrestled with her sexuality and her desires. I would have been entirely in her corner, cheering her journey on, if she hadn't kept inventing reasons not to tell her husband anything. Nothing. Not a word.

Sexual fidelity isn't important to me, never has been- but honesty is non-negotiable in any significant relationship I enter into, and reading about dishonesty mixed with elaborate protestations of love and grandiose rationalizations about the difference between healing sexual touch and sexual fidelity feels unclean. I found myself walking away from this book a number of times, but I kept coming back to see if she'd finally bite the bullet and fess up to her husband. Which (is this a spoiler?) she finally did at practically the very end. And he rose to the occasion with dignity and loving acceptance and none of the things she was sure he'd say were said.

Aside from this huge, glaring issue that I understand is MY hang-up and not hers, it was interesting to read about how organizations like the Body Electric work, and remarkable to be almost present for some of her Sacred Intimacy sessions. It was also pretty harrowing to read some of Madsen's mother's remarks about Madsen's body, toxic shaming garbage. That was a nice jumping off point for her to explore some of her body image issues, and her journey to healing around that was the most powerful part of the book for me. The other thing that leaped out at me was how much dough she had to have lying around to be able to go to $300 Sacred Intimacy sessions every couple of weeks, buy $400 corsets & bags full of sex toys and fly to week-long seminars at every opportunity. And her husband didn't notice this cash outlay? See, I'm back on the lying thing. Which truly did ruin the book for me, in every way that matters.

The candor in this novel, combined with humor and OMG moments, made this book my guilty pleasure. ( )
