Reading this book and partaking in the psychosocial skill exercises it contains will help couples learn how to value sexuality as a positive and satisfying part of their lives. Couples at any stage of their relationship will learn how to enhance sexual awareness, communication, feelings, and function. The result will be enhanced desire and eroticism that will help couples understand themselves and each other better.

Unfortunately when people look for ideas about how to have a healthy and vibrant sex life they run into a lot of misinformation and gimmicks. The latest miracle potion, technique, toy, position, etc. that is supposedly going to guarantee an endless supply of mind-blowing sex for everyone forever. This is where this book really shines. It helps real couples improve their real sex life in their own unique way so that it truly is more enjoyable. It won't teach you some ancient secret trick to ultimate bliss, but it will help you communicate, explore, and engage with your partner is a new way that you will find exciting and rewarding. The book is not dogmatic, preachy, or intellectualized. It combines research and a wealth of professional experience with a warm and practical style that is easy to understand and apply. There are exercises to help couples learn and utilize the principles laid out in the book.
So, as you can tell, I strongly encourage you to pick this up (!) if you are looking for a book on this topic. You won't regret it. And, it's not just for individuals or couples who are obviously struggling with some sexual concern. It's also for "normal/regular" couples who simply want to better understand healthy sexuality and improve their physical and emotional intimacy. I especially believe that young people who have grown up in the "age of abundant porn" need to read this. Young men and women come out of adolescence with so much misinformation and confusion about what they should be doing in the bedroom. This book doesn't proscribe "one way," but instead uses principles and exercises to help everyone figure out what works for them.
For those who are more conservative in their views, may I point out that I am what people would describe as a conservative Christian. Therefore, a couple things Barry writes are not in harmony with my beliefs and values. However, those are very, very few and, as he has always done, Barry treats our views with respect. From reading his research published in scholarly journals to reading his books to talking with him face-to-face, I find him balanced and typically dead-on target about how to help people overcome sexual difficulties and/or develop better love lives.
Barry and Emily have done so well with Sexual Awareness that not only have I recommended it to couples, but have suggested to the head of the Psychology Department of a Christian university that though not written as a textbook, this book should be part of the curriculum for both undergraduate and graduate psychology students, particularly those training in marriage and family therapy.
As Barry and Emily point out early in this volume, Sexual Awareness does not replace sex therapy. However, in my opinion, if both spouses work through the book together and do all the psychosexual exercises from each chapter, this book can play a significant role in leading them to develop a healthy love life and, if they have them, overcome many sexual difficulties.
sexual activity alive during a long relationship. This book gives stuck couples new hope.
My only complaint is that while this new addition makes a nod to its appropriateness for gay
and lesbian couples, I've yet to see an example that's anything but heterosexual. Still,
the examples can work for any kind of couple. This is a wise book. Don't let self-consciousness deprive
you of what it offers.
