that the author writes in, very affirming. She doesn't use the scare/condemnation tactics that so many other authors use when writing on this topic. This isn't quite a good as Marty Klein's book "Sexual Intelligence" but its close.

A book about being intimate and looking into behavior that makes us not be present? Seriously, everyone should read this. If I think of all the stories that my girlfriends and I sit around and talk about, at times most people in this modern age are always disconnecting. In fact, sometimes the fact that you are disconnected is the part people brag about!

This is a great book for soul searching for partners of addicts and for those who just want a reality check into 'what' is healthy.

How did you learn about human sexuality in relationships? This book is about discovering more about yourself as a sexual being and as a loving partner through gentle and thought provoking ideas. After working for many years in the field, Alex Katehakis utilizes her experience as a professional and passionate woman to share her insight. She guides the reader to tools for a deeper understanding of intimacy and increasing the feeling of connection with a partner. I have shared it with many people in recovery, in stale relationships, or those wishing to find a new healthy partner. They have been so grateful for the recommendation and are living in more vibrant and healthy intimate relationships now.

Very good book. Even if you aren't a sex addict, but just want to know more about how to take your sexual relationship to a new level. It talks about how connecting sex can be for a couple and some ideas on how to explore your way to that point. Very good read.

As a sex addiction therapist, I often use this book with couples moving into the healing stage of healthy sex. The author has done an excellent job in guiding couples through the stages of building healthy intimacy after hurt and betrayal. As an author of Facing Heartbreak: Steps to Recovery for Partners of Sex Addicts, I am happy to give this my highest recommendation! This will be a book that I will use with all of my recovering couples in my practice.

Alex Katehakis's Erotic Intelligence has helped several couples I work with that are sex addicts in recovery, who have made it through the difficulty of staying married. This book helps both the addict and partner of the addict find their way to healthy sexuality and learn a new language of how to relate to each other in the bedroom, after sex addiction. It is a vital resource in the field of couple's counseling.
