Very helpful

Despite the fact that it was Christian based, and I’m not religious, the information about human sexuality was amazing. I wish I would have known about this book when I was 18.

Long and Dry

This book just never really got that interesting. It was recommended by our marriage counselor but was almost impossible to finish. Waste of money imo.

Uncomfortable, lacks wisdom and sensitivity

This book did not work for my husband and I. Too clinical and not romantic. We'd agreed that we would never be comfortable doing some of the exercises. For example standing in front of a mirror naked and taking a critical inventory of our bodies. That just feels creepy, narcistic and self judging. The author also recommends surgery for parts of your body that you are not comfortable with. The book is authored by a husband and wife couple, but the women is silent in the text and it is narrated only by a man. To me it is creepy uncomfortable to listen to a man instructing me on this subject. It feels very condescending patriarchy. Both my husband and I tried to find value from the book, but eventually gave up. My husband was relived when I suggested we give up on it.

Rather than taking a critical inventory of how our naked bodies look, we find yoga, ball room dancing and other physical actives together to be much more enjoyable and romantic. Good old fashion fun is a much better aphrodisiac.
