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.
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.

I will be reading and really reading this book many times. There are.many distinctions in its pages. Highly recommended for couples and singles who want happy fulfilled relationships.
But this book explodes all the myths that run through every divorce i know about-- that marriage is supposed to be_____." (Each person has his or her own unconscious notions of what goes in the blank space, alas.)
But this book offers more than a new myth--more than one more initially seductive and ultimately disappointing self-help manual. It offers transformative truth-- and a compelling reason to have courage, to try something new and even scary-- great sex. REALLY intimate deeply satisfying sex.
A must read. I am recommending it to clients these days!
