    An Excellent Resource

    This book offers up 10 different libido types, helps you determine yours and your partners, and goes on to help you find out what it is that works best for you and your partner. There is one chapter on each libido type, and following those are additional chapters that offer more general, non-type specific advice and information, such as "the cycle of misinformation," how to communicate openly with one another, and various exercises (quizzes). This book has made a world of difference for me and my relationship; we have been struggling with mismatched sex drives for 11 years, and FINALLY we have come to a point of understanding and we are both content with our sex life together. Give it a try! However, it won't work if one or both partners are unwilling to compromise at least a little, especially if both partners have very different libidos. Good luck!
