Product description

Sex therapist David Schnarch argues here that sexual encounters provide opportunities to get closer to a partner, a process called "differentiation", and to develop the strength to love deeply. He describes sexual encounters and dramatic therapy sessions between couples, and demonstrates how they found personal, marital and sexual fulfilment far greater than they ever dreamed possible. He goes beyond simply curing sexual dysfunction to help people achieve their sexual potential. Every sexual exchange, from kissing to daring erotic behaviour is a picture of an entire relationship - a reflection of how partners feel about themselves and each other outside the bedroom. This is a respectful, erotic and spiritual guide to sexual and emotional fulfilment, demonstrating how to bring out the best in people, to help them love on life's terms and to revel in invigorating adult sexuality.

As renowned sex and marital therapist David Schnarch reveals in this revolutionary book, keeping passion and intimacy alive requires facing the anxiety of defining yourself while getting closer to your partner, a process called differentiation. In his sexual crucible approach, you don't have to compromise or give up your desires; instead, you have to stand on your own, stay close to your partner, and be prepared to soothe yourself when you don't get what you want. Sexual encounters provide perfect opportunities to differentiate and develop the strength of love deeply. Mixing humor and compassion, Schnarch describes couples' explicit sexual encounters and dramatic therapy sessions to demonstrate how they found personal, marital, and sexual fulfillment far greater than they ever dreamed possible. In this respectful, erotic, uplifting, and spiritual guide to sexual and emotional fulfillment, David Schnarch seeks to bring out the best in each of us, to help us love on life's terms, and to revel in invigorating adult sexuality.
