Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Couples therapists often specialize in one or the other--sex or the relationship. It's a ridiculous separation says marital and sex therapist David Schnarch, who believes sex is the all-telling barometer of a love relationship. Schnarch's fundamental lesson is differentiation--the often threatening process of defining yourself as separate from your partner, which inevitably draws you closer to your partner than you ever dreamed possible. Schnarch uses dramatic therapy sessions to illustrate how differentiation doesn't just cure sexual dysfunction; it helps couples reach the mind-blowing heights of their sexual potential. A groundbreaking and truly erotic discussion of adult sexuality. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Library Journal

Living in a "dead" relationship? Want to make it more passionate? More intimate? More loving? Schnarch (Constructing the Sexual Crucible, Norton, 1991) takes the reader behind the scenes as couples describe similar feelings as well as their explicit sexual encounters during dramatic therapy sessions. The book is divided into three sections. The first section gives the reader a framework for understanding his or her existing relationship so that it can grow. The second section gives detailed instructions on ways to make sex better and more intimate. The last chapters show how sex and intimacy operate together in marriage. A potentially useful guide; recommended for larger well-circulating self-help collections.?Marty Dean Evensvold, Magnolia P.L., Tex.

Review

“This pioneering work opens whole new lines of thoughts and will benefit many couples.” (Bernie Zilbergeld, PhD, author of The New Male Sexuality)

“Of the many books I've read on the subject of sexuality and relationships, ?Passionate Marriage ?is far and away the best. It's at the top of my very short list of must-reads. It is brilliantly challenging and provocative, a book to be underlined, dog-eared, and carried around for weeks.” (Janet Carlson Freed - Town and Country)

“Schnarch takes the reader behind the scenes as couples describe similar feelings as well as their explicit sexual encounters during dramatic therapy sessions.... [A] useful guide.” (Marty Dean Evenswold - Library Journal)
