Dr. Brandy Engler
THE MEN ON MY COUCH (Berkley Books, 2012)

When Dr. Brandy Engler earned her doctorate (having written her thesis on female sexual dysfunction) and went into private practice in Manhattan, she expected a clientele composed of mostly women and perhaps a few men. The opposite turned out to be the case. For a thirty year old, attractive woman starting her career as a therapist, private sessions in which she became drawn into men’s intimate sexual lives were both intriguing and disconcerting. She learned more than she could have imagined—about how men feel about women, themselves, love, power, attraction, dysfunction, and fear. And through the experience, everything she believed about her own relationships with men shifted perspective. Dr. Engler is a licensed clinical psychologist and sex therapist and currently practices in Los Angeles.
