Intimate Kisses: The Poetry of Sexual Pleasure Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This new collection from the editor of Passionate Hearts: The Poetry of Sexual Love and author of The Sexual Healing Journey includes 121 poems by such poets as Rumi, Marge Piercy, Emily Dickinson, Nikki Giovanni, Anne Sexton, Sharon Olds, Octavio Paz, and Elizabeth Barrett Browning.

Therapist and marriage counselor Wendy Maltz turns up the heat while celebrating healthy sexuality in this collection of poems that dispel the negative cultural message that what feels good must be bad. Maltz's anthologies are designed to inspire couples toward a deeper physical intimacy and to show that the sexual impulse can be aroused by conveying personal experience through great writing.

Review:

"I am grateful beyond expression for Wendy Maltz's achievement. It gives me hope by calling on one of the more significant gifts of sexuality — the sensuous pleasure of well-selected, well-mated words." from the foreword by Thomas Moore, author of Care of the Soul and The Soul of Sex

Review:

"I have bookmarked half the poems in this book! There is a poem for every mood, every sensibility. These poets help you ponder your own feelings about sexuality and relationships and read deeper and more truthfully into how you feel about what you have, and haven't, experienced. Reading this book was a total pleasure." Dr. Pepper Schwartz, author of The Great Sex Weekend

Synopsis:

Following on the success of Passionate Hearts, Wendy Maltz continues her celebration of healthy sexuality with a new anthology of 121 poems that turn up the heat. Through some of the richest, most celebrated poetry ever written, Intimate Kisses revels in life's greatest mystery and breaks through negative cultural messages that what feels good must be bad, or that only second-rate erotica can excite.

Synopsis:

In 1997, sex therapist and marriage counselor Wendy Maltz, author of the Sexual Healing Journey and coauthor of Private Thoughts, compiled Passionate Hearts, an anthology of "poems that inspire and celebrate healthy sexual intimacy; poems in which heart connection was at the core of the sexual experience." In Intimate Kisses, Maltz follows on the success of Passionate Hearts with a new anthology of poetry that continues her celebration of healthy sexuality and, in the process, turns up the heat.

Intimate Kisses revels in what may be lifes greatest mystery, through some of richest, most celebrated poetry ever written. Included in this anthology are 121 poems by such poets as Marge Piercy, Emily Dickenson, Jelaluddin Rumi, Nikki Giovanni, Anne Sexton, Sharon Olds, Octavio Paz, Molly Peacock, Dorianne Laux, Jane Hirshfield, Elizabeth Barrett Browning, Galway Kinnell, and W.S. Merwin, as well as dozens of lesser-known and unpublished poets.
