The Men on My Couch: True Stories of Sex, Love, and Psychotherapy

( 6 )

Overview

When Dr. Brandy Engler opened her sex therapy practice for women in Manhattan, she got a big surprise. Most of the calls were from men. They wanted to talk about womanizing, porn addiction, impotence, prostitutes—and most of all, love.

Her patients were everyday guys from all walks of life. Among them were David, the Wall Street hotshot and compulsive womanizer; Charles, an introvert who kept pushing away the fiancée he thought was too beautiful for him; Paul, the self-made man ...

Overview

When Dr. Brandy Engler opened her sex therapy practice for women in Manhattan, she got a big surprise. Most of the calls were from men. They wanted to talk about womanizing, porn addiction, impotence, prostitutes—and most of all, love.

Her patients were everyday guys from all walks of life. Among them were David, the Wall Street hotshot and compulsive womanizer; Charles, an introvert who kept pushing away the fiancée he thought was too beautiful for him; Paul, the self-made man who visited massage parlors despite his sexy wife; and the men's group whose stark revelations about male anger and their search for the right woman will open your eyes. In The Men on My Couch, Dr. Engler allows listeners inside those private sessions to witness her exciting and evocative encounters with what men desire and fear.

Dr. Engler tells her own story, too. At first her patients' revelations are painful and disconcerting, especially against the backdrop of her own difficult love affair. Yet Dr. Engler lets listeners experience how she evolves both professionally and personally, from chagrin to compassion, and reconciles her idealized notions of love and sex with the unexpected and raw truths she hears in the office.

The Men on My Couch is unlike other relationship books. There are no tired facile conclusions or pejorative generalizations. Here are fresh insights into modern sexual maladies, gleaned from real people having real struggles and experiencing real epiphanies—in the real world.

This book will change how both women and men think about love, sex, and desire.

    Loved it, couldn't put it down.  Interesting to see the inside of men's minds and what they think about behind closed doors. Writing style kept me interested as well. I hope she writes more books in the future!

    Worth reading

    Sometimes books of this sort can be a dense read but I was pleasantly surprised to find that it read more like a cohesive story than a bunch of long words and psychobabble. The characters are well developed and it has definitely given me insight to the male psyche. I highly recommend this book.
