Publisher's Summary

Are you in charge of your love life? If you think so, you're wrong - hormones control our sex drives and direct our love lives. In The Alchemy of Love and Lust, Dr. Theresa Crenshaw, a renowned sex therapist and researcher, unmasks the hidden agendas of our hormones as we progress through different sexual stages - from adolescence through old age.

Along with well-known hormones, Dr. Crenshaw introduces lesser known but potent influences that make up our "sex soup". The effects of these chemicals working together and individually offer insight into some compelling issues:

  • Do people become addicted to one another through scent and touch?
  • Can we determine our romantic destinies by altering our hormonal profiles?

Romantics needn't worry that science will eliminate the mystery of attraction. To the contrary, this program helps us discover romance, rekindle it, and keep it alive. Filled with often surprising information, The Alchemy of Love and Lust explains the effects of our sex hormones and gives us specific, practical suggestions on how to monitor them.

    "Disappointed, surprised at the lack of depth"

    Came off as a campaign for Hormone Replacement Therapy. One sided western point of view. Really not that informative and the metaphors used didn't hit the mark. Honestly most of this info you can get from a YouTube video. Sorry to say....

    What did you like best about Alchemy of Love and Lust? What did you like least?

    Presentation is boring, the parts that are meant to be sexy sounding aren't. Learned a little bit about the information about testosterone, etc.


    Do you think Alchemy of Love and Lust needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope.
