PRESS RELEASE  Feb. 6, 2017


Love is under attack!

Learn exactly how to protect your intimacy, brain and relationships from today’s toxic world. And how to be the best lover ever!

SEXY BRAIN is a breakthrough book about a new problem—the looming threat of environmental castration.
Just as science is showing that intimacy is as beneficial as veggies and exercise for your health—especially for your brain—today’s intimacy is under attack from our toxic environment.
Our toxic environment and unhealthy life styles are hijacking our hormones and tamping down our human ability to connect or to benefit from these connections as nature intended.


This is Berkson’s 20th book. Berkson wrote one of the first books on endocrine disruption (Hormone Deception, 2000), one of the first books on the mind/gut/nutrition link (Healthy Digestion the Natural Way, 2001) and one of the first books on bioidentical hormones and how they lean on nutrients and the gut (Safe Hormones, 2010).

Now all these books converge in the American bedroom.

Berkson was asked by a team of surgeons and urologists to write a book on hormones and intimacy for their 100 erectile dysfunction clinics. In doing due diligence, Dr. Lindsey was stunned to see how intimacy is critical for health, especially cognition. Yet, at the same time, our human ability to want and have great intimacy is threatened by today’s modern terrain.


SEXY BRAIN gives exact answers on how to create amazing intimacy, exact steps to be a great lover based on the hard-wired biology of estrogen and testosterone, and unveils the unappreciated cross-talk between intimacy and your brain and gut. Factoids are science-based but written with zest.

Sex starts in the gut.

Learn that the gut is the “mothership” not only for physical health, but also for hormone health, including intimacy.

Learn about the “microgenderome,” which is the how your gut bugs and gut wall interact with your hormones (and your desire, ability, and pleasure).

Unhealthy guts create unhealthy hormones, no matter how normal the levels of your hormones may appear on any type of testing.


  • Do the 10-day, Sex Hormone Receptor Detox to improve hormone signaling and get the benefit from intimacy that nature intended.
  • Discover the Hormone Language of Love so relationships become less frustrating and more successful.
  • Get the big brain benefits of intimacy when you learn how to have big “O’s” with “Awakened Sex.”
  • This is a book parents can respectfully gift to their adult kids when they get engaged.
  • This is a 360-degree intimacy manual to understand and achieve in-depth human connection.
  • Know which nutrients are critical for great intimacy.
  • Learn more about oxytocin than even your doctors know.

  • “Dr. Berkson’s latest book SEXY BRAIN is her newest masterpiece to add to her impressive list of books. As always, Dr. Berkson picks a topic of current interest, researches it to the finest detail and then compiles her findings in a logical, scientific, poetic, and easy-to-read format. Compared to other books on the topic, which seem to be little more than R-rated fiction, SEXY BRAIN takes the reader through a scientifically backed journey into the human brain’s role in physical attraction, emotional involvement, and the pleasures of intimacy. And the benefits. Even as a gynecologist, I had no idea that intimacy and lovemaking were so brain protective! This is a must read for any professional who counsels patients or anyone who simply wants to get more out of intimacy and the physical pleasures that life has to offer.
