Publisher Comments:

The greatest sexual pleasure in a person's lifetime is possible in one's middle and later years, asserts Dr. David Schnarch, when a mature sense of self has been achieved and genuine intimacy is possible with another person. At his Family Health Center in Colorado Dr. Schnarch works with couples in long-term committed relationships who want to get emotionally and sexually closer. In Passionate Marriage Dr. Schnarch shares what he has learned about how couples can--and must--simultaneously break through the sexual and the emotional blocks that hold them back from total satisfaction. He counsels that every sexual exchange, from kissing to daring erotic behaviors, is a picture of an entire relationship--a reflection of how you and your partner feel about yourselves and each other outside the bedroom. This respectful, erotic, uplifting, and spiritual guide to sexual and emotional fulfillment makes a passionate marriage within the reach of every couple.

I can't help but be evangelical about this book. Whether you are single right now, entering a new relationship, or been at it a while (and it bears mentioning, gay or straight, despite the title), this book is immensely helpful to anyone trying to hold onto themselves while cultivating true intimacy with another. Even if you've "done a lot of work" on yourself, Schnarch provides new wrinkles, deep insights and many aha! moments. Concepts like being self-validated vs other-validated; being differentiated from your partner and not fused or enmeshed; and the concept of intimacy (it's your brain, silly!) being the real and most profound driver of sexual desire. I can't say enough about this book. I'm fairly confident that almost anyone will find tidbits every few pages that are deeply resonant with experiences we all have in relationships. Read it now, *before* you enter your next relationship!
