Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Keeping sex in the bedroom is just so...tame!

If the only time you get intimate in your marriage is when you turn off the lights at night, buy this book now! Sex is about more than just physical encounters under the covers. It's about a lifestyle of passion and intimacy that can be felt throughout the day.

Sex Begins in the Kitchen will show you how to bring more of that passion into your marriage. Best-selling author Dr. Kevin Leman explains how sexual intimacy is an expression of the care you and your spouse show each other in all areas of life-in communicating, in sharing thoughts and feelings, and even in helping out around the house. With insightful-and often hilarious-examples, Dr. Leman shows you how to create new joy and excitement in your relationship and make your marriage more satisfying, both emotionally and physically.

Dr. Kevin Leman is an internationally known psychologist, humorist, and best-selling author, and the founder of Matchwise.com. He is a former consulting psychologist for Good Morning America and a frequent guest on The View, The Early Show, CNN, NBC's TODAY, and Focus on the Family.

Leman is a comic with a vital message for healthy marriages. His common sense tips for improving your marriage and your sex life are actually things that can be easily incorporated into your life.
His writing style is clever, not churchy. Although, you know the message he delivers has a Christian foundation.
This book was a blessing in my marriage.

Sex Begins in the Kitchen ... is more than just a book about sex. It's about the husband/wife relationship including topics like birth order, previous sexual relationships, and communication.
This book is written by a man who understands both men and women and is able to explain things in a way both sexes can understand. His comedy keeps heavy issues light enough to deal with without watering down the importance of the message. I would recommend this book for couples who are having trouble, those in good times and for those who are engaged.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Leman knows his stuff! He has the gift of being able to share his insights, wisdom and practical advice (guidelines, how to, and exercises -- not just talk) in an easily understandable, entertaining package. He explains both men's and women's perspectives to help us understand each other. He not only tells us the truth, he tells us how to cope and improve our lives. I promise you will see yourself and many others you know in these pages.
We can all use more wisdom to improve our marriages, and nothing is more important to our happiness. Many/most of us lacked good role models modeling healthy marriages while we were growing up. Many of the lessons we learned have not served us well. Even the lucky few with good role models will face unique challenges with their own spouses. So we can all benefit from learning better relationship skills.
Dr. Leman helps us to see that we have everything to gain by making our marriage our top priority in life. (Yes, even ahead of the children, who are #2. We've probably all seen parents who are blowing this concept.) IMO the section on communication is key. It's no news that men and women often don't communicate in the same way. Poor communication leads to misunderstandings, frustration and anger. Burying those feelings eventually backfires; they are always expressed in some form. The resulting emotional distance has destroyed many marriages. Dr. Leman gives practical guidelines on how to overcome our differences and strengthen the emotional bonds and intimacy that give us our deepest satisfaction in life.
This book is a fantastic bargain with life-enhancing potential. Thank you for sharing your wisdom, Dr. Leman!

Format: Paperback
As a husband and pastor who works with many marriages, healthy and otherwise, I am most impressed with this book. The title doesn't really do it justice as it addresses a diverse range of subjects related to intimacy in marriage. The book is refreshingly honest and practical - addressing the issue of sex and intimacy with forthrightness, maturity and humor. Though, I know from experience that the greatest audience for books on relationships are women, I can guarantee that men will find this book extremely interesting, useful and fun to read! Way to go Dr. Leman!

What does a mess left in the kitchen have to do with sex?... Gentlemen, you will be surprised! :)
I would recommend this book to both engaged and already married couples. There are so many things to learn - and adjust to - when two people join together in marriage; there are differences in personality, temperament, upbringing. This book will help you to prepare for all that and more - or to get back on the right track if your marriage could use some advice.
