If I'm not a relationship advice columnist, I'm certainly not a sex therapist. But here is my Valentine to you and yours. I consider my offering it nothing less than a public service.
Ian Kerner, Ph.D. has written two of the best books I've ever read about getting sexual intimacy right, "She Comes First: The Thinking Man's Guide to Pleasuring a Woman," and "He Comes Next: The Thinking Woman's Guide to Pleasuring a Man."
Buy them and read them with someone you love.
Ian looks pretty cute to me on his book jacket, in that "I'm a really mencshy smart guy" kinda way. He also writes that when he met his wife he, "found [his] Stradivarius -- unique, beautiful, and priceless." And, he's a big fan of Strunk and White, "Elements of Style." If those aren't things that make a heart quiver, I don't know what else would.
Now, Ian is a sex/relationships therapist. And he worked hard to learn as much as he could about pleasing women because he was trying to overcome his own sexual disfunction. Boy, did he succeed, because he came up with the goods/books that are compassionate, intelligent, and thoroughly indispensable.
Don't bother thanking me. It's all in a days work for a Romance Novel Columnist who happens to love reading about sex and romantic love.
Encore due! Feel free to add an "s" to the end of the word relationship, if necessary.
Encore tre! Have a spectacular weekend. And, yes, I couldn't come up with a blog, and decided to recycle from way back when.
