Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is no "cookie cutter" approach to relationships; McCarthy and McCarthy unearth unique qualities of each couple and show them how to blend intimacy and eroticism in a realistic and fulfilling style. Every couple can grow―and keep growing―with this book’s guidance." - Michael Metz, co-author of Men’s Sexual Health

"Once again the McCarthys have created a classic, easy to read, and relevant guide to a great sex life that is tailored to your personal style and taste. Great insights, compelling stories and fun exercises make this a must read book." - Dr Sue Johnson, author of Hold Me Tight: Seven Conversations for a Lifetime of Love (www.holdmetight.net)

"With wisdom and clarity, the authors provide a wealth of solid information for couples who want to overcome personal challenges, bridge their erotic differences, and create a deeply rewarding and enduring sexual life together." - Wendy Maltz, author of The Sexual Healing Journey and Passionate Hearts

"The very concept of a "couple sexual style" is radically transformative and inspirational. It creates hope and confidence as couples realize that it's in their power to create and maintain, decorate and refurbish their own style―together." - Diane Sollee, Founder and Director of smartmarriages.com

"I appreciate that the authors note taht , while this is a self-help book, it is not a do-it-yourself help book. The book provides value to the sexuality field, particularly to therapy and counseling. It is a resource that is accessible to the average person by not bring over-priced or too daunting in size to read. It also normalizes areas of sexuality that are often viewed to be on the fringes by our society." - Shanna L. S. Klunk, LSW, MSW, licensed psychotherapist, in Contemporary Sexuality, june 2010. Vol 44. No. 6

Format: Paperback
I'm not an avid consumer of the sea of self-help books that wash ashore in bookstores constantly, but McCarthy and McCarthy provide an insightful, smart, well-written balance of insights and actionable ideas in a refreshingly readable style (with some interesting and enlightening anecdotes). Whether married, single, or just trying to understand how to frame feelings about what healthy sex is and the role it plays in satisfying relationships (as I am), this book is genuinely helpful and worth reading. No magical gimmicks, but solid, wise and useful counsel on a perenially tough topic from long-time, talented authors that genuinely seem to understand.

Format: Paperback
As a practicing Certified Sex Therapist, I am always on the lookout for a great book to underscore what I try to impart to my clients about healthy sexuality. This book captures the essence! McCarthy and McCarthy divide the book into helpful sections, discussing realistic, positive sexual expression and sexual style in Part I, techniques and attitudes that enhance sexual desire and satisafaction in Part II, ideas for dealing with specific sexual challenges such as sexual inhibitions and illnesses in Part III, and suggestions for maintaining healthy couple sexuality in Part IV. Particularly helpful to engage couples in discussion with one another are the self-tests and exercises which are beautifully integrated with the material throughout the book. While the book is focused primarily on the challenges faced by heterosexual couples, it contains great wisdom useful to all couples, especially those in a new relationship in which the development of healthy ideas and interactions can save heartache later. Many readers will appreciate the straightforward style and short length.

This book sparked a very lively debate/argument/air clearing between my husband and I. Its exactly what we needed to understand one anothers sexual style and the fact that the roles were actually reversed.
A must read.

I'd say this is a fun book to have in the earlier stages of a new relationship, but if you have been together for a while you will most likely know allot of these things already about the other person. The comparative quiz gave good insights and lead to good discussions on the topic.
