Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Written by Dr. Love, a sex therapist with an aptronym if ever there was one, Hot Monogamy is no contradiction in terms. Comedian Dave Barry may joke about his guide to "marriage and/or sex," but Dr. Love's book proves that becoming sensually and "sexually fluent" is a skill that can send flames soaring, no matter how long you've been a couple or how humdrum your sex life has become.

Hot Monogamy includes a nine-step program that starts with a self-quiz for each partner for determining "sexual style." This helps pinpoint which areas need to be worked on, such as resolving differences in desire--one of the most common problems among long-term couples. Communication is a big topic, but another painless quiz helps reveal romantic expectations both in and out of bed to help clarify exactly where overlooked problems may be festering.

Then comes technique. The chapter "Variety: How to Have More Fun in Bed" may prove the most useful, with discussions of sex toys, fantasy, sex games, and other forms of experimentation. Dr. Love is a firm believer in the G spot, and clearly explains how to make maximum fireworks with it. The book also includes contact information for sexual products that can be sent to you confidentially, as well as guidelines and resources for seeing a sex therapist.

83 of 84 people found the following review helpful By Joseph Horak, Ph.D. on March 3, 1999
Format: Paperback
This book is written in a format that allows couples to engage in conversations that they would never come to alone. Hot Monogamy addresses the issues of sexuality and intimacy in a thoughtful and respectful manner. I highly recommend this book for my clients and they continue to find it extremely helpful. They especially like the questions at the end of each chapter for conversation. It stimulates some very intimate and important discussion about the inner most thoughts we have.

67 of 71 people found the following review helpful By Treebyleaf McCurdy on December 13, 1998
Format: Paperback
Hot Monogamy has some wonderful touching exercises, and very good examinations of how relationships work, especially where communication goes wrong and how it can go right. Unfortunately, the book's sexual content is sadly biased by cultural myth and mass-assumptions. This would be a nice companion for a book with better sexual content, such as Lonnie Barbach's For Each Other or the New Good Vibrations Guide to Sex, but it shouldn't stand alone.

After eight years of marriage, I found Dr. Love's book to be a truly practical, intellectual and stimulating (pun intended!) guide to a more passionate, intimate love relationship. Be sure to share this with all your friends!

Format: Paperback
This is an awesome book and is cheaper than a marriage counselor or sex therapist. It has actual written and oral (no pun intended) exercises to help couples get back in touch with each other.

I found this book a repeat of all the things I have read in women's magazines. So I was disappointed.

5 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Denise on February 8, 2008
Format: Paperback
As an MFT Intern, dealing with conflict in the bedroom is an area that any therapist dealing with couples should be comfortable discussing. This book gives great guidance on what to say, how to approach it and gives the therapist numerous self-reports (questions could be used to guide discussion in sessions)and homework suggestions to acheive a more fullfilling intimate life. It has just as much to improve communication as technique.
