Introduction

All across America there has been a renewed commitment to long-term relationships. Understanding that 50% of marriages will end in divorce, more and more couples are seeking professional counseling and training to learn the skills necessary to keep their relationships intact.

Yet, many are dissatisfied with the sexual component of their relationships. The National Health and Social Life Survey determined that 43% of women and 31% of men have some type of sexual dysfunction. Moreover, experts estimate that over 40 million women have lost their desire for sex!

What is happening with these relationships? Why do so many committed couples struggle with such an essential and pleasurable part of their relationship?

It turns out that in addition to psychological and sociological factors, our biochemistry plays a role. A great deal has been written to help couples understand relationships from a psychological point of view, but not as much about the biological forces that significantly impact our sexual arousal processes. Scientists have discovered that certain biochemicals increase our desire for sex and others decrease it. And while researchers are discovering more every day, not enough of what scientists have already determined -- and how couples can apply this research -- has been broadly disseminated to the general public. Until now.

Hormones and neurotransmitters affect the way we think, act and feel. We're all familiar with adrenaline, which surges in response to threatening situations. For instance, if we suddenly perceive danger, adrenaline is released as our fight or flight response system kicks in, causing our hearts to beat faster and our blood pressure to rise. We start taking short quick breaths and our senses become more acute as our bodies prepare for rapid response.

People pumped with adrenaline have been known to perform superhuman acts. Eventually, the threat of danger disappears and our bodies return to normal. The initiation of the adrenaline process is not a conscious one. We don't tell ourselves to release more adrenaline in order to respond with fight or flight. In the face of danger, our bodies go on a form of autopilot in order to prime ourselves for optimal response.

This is an example of how our bodies perceive external stimuli and respond with biochemical changes that affect the way we perform. Several other biochemical reactions take place in our bodies in response to external or internal stimuli. Seduce Me! explores those that specifically affect sexual arousal, both positively and negatively.

In addition to helping us understand the role of biochemical and psychological factors in our libidos, Seduce Me! presents methods that can reactivate the body's sexual arousal systems. You can learn how to ignite - or re-ignite - your partner's passion and regularly experience ultimate sexual pleasure.

  • Seduce Me! is for couples who have lost the spark they once had and want to get it back.
  • Seduce Me! is for couples who never fully developed their sexual selves and are ready to learn.
  • Seduce Me! is for couples who are currently having sensational sex, and want to make sure it will continue.

Seduce Me! demonstrates that sensational sex does not require having sex 5 times a day, having multiple simultaneous orgasms, or having 60 minutes of intercourse. It doesn't require model-perfect looks or body-builder muscles and you certainly don't have to be young. It doesn't even require partners that are experts on the latest techniques. All it takes is a true desire to understand your partner's needs and a willingness to explore ways of meeting them.

Inside every man is a potential Don Juan and in every woman, the passion of Lady Chatterley. Unfortunately, he's often too busy being "Mr. Hardworking-breadwinner-without-enough-time-for-family," while she's trying to balance Murphy Brown, June Cleaver, and Martha Stewart.

But even in our hectic, complicated, and overwhelming work and family lives, there is room for passion and intimacy. In fact, passion and intimacy can help keep our relationships strong enough to handle the day-to-day chaos.

Most of us have had passionate sex at least once in our lives. If you had it before and now don't - you can get it back…if you've never had it, you will soon!

If sex is such a natural phenomenon, how come there are so many books on how to do it? -- Bette Midler

    Very helpful

    The medical information was actually the most helpful. They gave possible explanations for a decreased sex drive that applied to both my husband and myself. Understanding the causes behind some of our lack of interest helped us to work on solutions.

    Seduction Scenes - A Definite Turn On

    When I started reading the Seduction Scene Strategies chapter I felt that sexual tingle of excitement...just by reading it I was turned on! I thought that part of me was dead. After being married for almost 17 years with two active boys, I find it difficult to take the time to really enjoy sex like we used to do. Lately, it has been nothing but 'quickies' so that I can sleep! Both my husband and I are looking forward to experimenting the Seduction Scene Strategies and Role Playing. I was telling my girlfried about the book and she can't wait to read it!

    An Excellent and Enjoyable Resource

    After reading 'Seduce Me! How to Ignite Your Partner's Passion', I immediately made arrangements to purchase an initial order of 50 copies for our medical office. Through our patient-centered obstetrics and gynecology practice, we treat thousands of women annually and receive questions and concerns about sexual libido daily. I found this book to be very informative, presenting scientific biochemical data and psychological insights in a manner that any of our patients could easily comprehend. Beyond that, the recommendations offer clear and fun solutions, addressing both sexual and relationship issues. I would estimate that 1 in 4 women I see daily expresses problems with sexual desire or fulfillment and I am very pleased to be able to provide 'Seduce Me!' to them as an excellent and enjoyable resource!

    You've explained it all for me

    THIS book really helps to explain what is in a woman's heart and mind. The constant pressure to keep the household running smoothly and taking care of everyone else's needs leaves little time for my needs. Thank you for writing what I could never explain to my husband.
