Probably appealing to some very specialist tastes...
on 8 July 2013
I found the mindfulness and meditative aspect of the book very helpful, also some of the rituals described and it has helped us to become more aware that we should devote more time and preparation to our lovemaking. Unfortuantely, a large part of the book seemed to have been devoted to some very specialist practices, i.e. group sex, swinging, and casual encounters. The descriptions of safer sex practices I found ludicrous, because if you have to take that many precautions, should you be having sex with this person at all. I would have like to have seen more emphasis being placed on committed longterm relationship sex. We can all get excited in the first few weeks with a new partner, but maintaining this excitement and still making time for intimacy over many years and under presssures from work, children and family commitments, that is the real challenge!
