Book Summary

Chances are, we would all like to be having more sex. No matter how much sex you are actually having, you are programmed to crave it and seek it out, BUT, unlike your biological drive for food, your body can still survive without erotic release.

If you do have the opportunity to engage in sex, though, the realities of it are far more complex than a simple matter of penetration and climax. Through an understanding of your body’s anatomy, response to arousal, and the variation and contextual attributes of erotic experiences, you have the ability to elevate your sex life.

Self-confidence and an awareness of both your body and your partner’s are key--don’t let media representations of ‘ideal sex practices’ stand in your way!
