Overview

Is sex more work than play in your marriage? Do you schedule it in like a dentist appointment? Do you make love once a month, twice at the most?

If you answered yes to these questions, you are among the forty million Americans trapped in a low-sex or no-sex marriage.

Now there is help from nationally acclaimed sex and marital experts Barry and Emily McCarthy, who for years have helped couples break down the barriers that have developed between them, and rebuild closeness and longing. Their groundbreaking ten-step program is designed to get sex and intimacy back into these marriages and revitalize relationships. Crafted by years of clinical practice, Rekindling Desire first shows couples how to root out the "poisons" that inhibit sexual desire: shame, guilt, anger, passivity, as well as medical side effects and physical dysfunctions. With sensitivity and tact, the McCarthys then lay out concrete techniques and effective strategies that help couples increase sexual awareness, confront inhibitions, revitalize desire, and integrate intimacy and eroticism.

An exciting new way to spark and sustain desire, Rekindling Desire confronts the secrecy and stigma of low-sex and no-sex marriages, teaching couples how to enjoy a fulfilling, life-long sexual partnership.

    Absolutely useless!!!

    I read this book, and its carbon copy, Michele Weiner-Davis¿ Sex-starved marriage, as someone in a low-sex, no-sex marriage. I found both books absolutely useless. Neither book even began to address the relational issues underlying my situation. Both books are more about sexual technique than anything else, and they scrupulously avoid the deeper, emotional issues, the very root causes of low-sex, that drive couples apart. I paged through each book, looking hopefully for something that spoke to my situation, and found nothing of any use.
