Announcing Love Worth Making (St. Martin’s Press; February 13, 2018) by Dr. Stephen Snyder, a sex and couples therapist and psychiatrist featured on NBC’s Today, Glamour, Newsweek, and Cosmopolitan. Talk about a fun read! My favorite takeaway is that sex shouldn’t be difficult. Who knew? If sex feels like a chore or a hurdle, work to change things up. Adjust. Adapt. Chill. Relax. Dr. Synder tells you how.
Here’s the scoop on the book in the words of the publisher:
For couples in long-term, committed relationships, a satisfying sex life can be elusive. Sex advice is plentiful, but it overwhelmingly focuses on techniques to spice up your sex life and make things “new” and “exciting.” What if, however, this advice fundamentally misunderstands the sexual needs of men and women in committed relationships?
In Love Worth Making, Dr. Stephen Snyder explains how a great sex life is possible when we connect deeply with our sexual feelings. A sex therapist with 25 years of experience, Dr. Snyder offers a game-changing approach to good sex in this lively and informative book.
Research from the Kinsey Institute suggests that 25% of American women in heterosexual relationships are markedly distressed about their sex lives. Love Worth Making uses stories from Dr. Snyder’s practice to illustrate how to make significant and lasting changes to your sex life. He also integrates the latest research on human sexuality in easily understandable terms. Dr. Snyder’s guidance will allow couples to understand and embrace their sexual feelings in order to have the best sex of their lives.
Like Mating in Captivity, Love Worth Making is destined to become a defining book on sexuality for couples of all ages and backgrounds.
