Many readers who are feeling stuck or stale and perhaps wondering "Where did that spark go?" will enjoy this affirming, down-to-earth guide for maintaining connection and building regular, special, personalized sex into your life.
The authors are our favorite writers on sex and change, and this book is an intelligent, positive guide to using humor, your own strengths, practical skills, and sound information to ride the waves of life in long-term romantic relationships. This book is written towards both partners and emphasizes that the goal of enduring desire is only possible when couples do the work together as an intimate team. While the focus is on heterosexual, monogamous partnerships, the principles could easily be adapted to any sort of committed relationship.
