This has really got myself and my partner talking about issues we are having. Chapter by chapter it gives an oppotunity for talk as well as some great exercises that have really helped spark the romance back. Although its early days this book has been very beneficial and has given us both information we did not know about.

A revelation for gay men in long-term relationships 19 Jan 2014
By James Wood - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This comprehensive presentation of the psychological development of gay male relationships as they move beyond the initial passionate stages and toward more mature, deeper stages is a revelation to behold. Gay men bring to their relationships, Dr. Leight explains in clear and engaging prose with examples and exercises, their lifetime of experiences, good and bad; our often-disapproving society throws a nasty monkey wrench into this mix. The conflicts that inevitably result create challenges for the intimacy gay men so crave with their partners. Dr. Leight explores in nearly "forensic" detail the sources of these challenges, and without judgment on what constitutes the "norm" for gay men, he presents a creative, therapeutic path to gay male couples who wish to overcome these challenges and forge a lifelong, intimate bond.

All at once, Dr. Leight speaks to psychology clinicians and interested laymen -- the gay men he discusses so empathetically in this narrative -- and brings them into the conversation about where they may take their relationships. His colleagues, the clinicians who treat gay male individuals and couples coming to them with concerns about their relationships, can use this as a therapeutic roadmap; and gay men themselves may use this as a prescription for a healthy relationship. As Dr. Leight says, "it's a lot of work, but it can be fun."

I read "Sex Happens" with great personal interest. Like so many other gay men, I've navigated the rough waters of long-term relationships. For myself, looking at both my past and my present, I see great value in Dr. Leight's work -- and feel real hope for the prospect of deep intimacy for gay men, that ability to reveal one's innermost thoughts and feelings to one's partner.

If you care about how your long-term relationship develops, this is the book for you. This is the quite possibly the BEST book for you.

I highly recommend this book for clinicians 23 Dec 2013
By George Kallas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Sex Happens is a must have book for any sex therapist or clinician's library. This guide was written specifically for the needs of your gay male clients and can be recommended to couples and individuals dealing with relationship issues or simply wishing to enhance their sex lives and emotional connection. The information is presented in a clear and understandable manner and can be used as an adjunct to therapy or as a valuable guide if psychotherapy is not affordable. Dr. Leight utilizes his personal observations and many years of therapy experience in dealing with problems unique to male relationships and sexuality. He has created a guide that addresses solutions to the unique issues that arise in male relationships. I highly recommend this book to couples and individuals struggling with these issues and for anyone who wants to increase their knowledge of diverse relationships. George Kallas, Psy.D.
So far, excellent 10 Jun 2014

I'm about 60 pages in and it has described many of the dynamics within my relationship almost perfectly. It's extremely relieving to know that my concerns are basically textbook examples and it gives me a lot of hope that results are obtainable. Look forward to reading further and passing on to friends I think can benefit from this. Recommend ordering a second copy for your partner if you are in a relationship and working together to make it stronger.
