Description

"No hype, no bromides--just loads of practical and inspiring strategies for having a life-long, satisfying sexual relationship. I can't think of a better guide for couples young and old. Read it together, use it, and give it to couples starting their journey together." --William J. Doherty, PhD, Professor of Family Social Science, University of Minnesota; author, Take Back Your Marriage

"Metz and McCarthy have written the best book available on enhancing and maintaining sexual desire and intimacy in long-term relationships. Through real life examples and inviting the reader's self examination, Metz and McCarthy introduce the value of the 'Good Enough Sex' model, rather than the goal-oriented, perfect intercourse model that leads so many couples to frustration. This book is a gift to everyone seeking a better and enduring level of sexual and personal intimacy." --Julian Slowinski, PsyD, ABPP, Department of Psychiatry, University of Pennsylvania, School of Medicine; Senior Clinical Psychologist, Pennsylvania Hospital; Co-author, The Sexual Male, The Good Sex Guide

"A realistic and refreshing look at creating and maintaining a satisfying sex life across the ages. Metz and McCarthy challenge the mythical sexual beliefs of incessant and unrelenting sexual desire that pervade our culture, and instead offer honest and unbiased tips for setting realistic expectations and fostering healthy sexual scripts." --Lori A. Brotto, PhD, R Psych, Assistant Professor, University of British Columbia, Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology

"Metz and McCarthy's concept of 'good enough sex, ' as emphasized in their newest book, Enduring Desire, offers a superb model of expectation management for professional and public audiences alike. I would recommend this book to my patients, colleagues, and students without hesitation." --Michael A. Perelman, PhD, President, Society for Sex Therapy and Research; Clinical Associate Professor, Psychiatry, Reproductive Medicine and Urology, NY Weill Cornell Medical Center

"Metz and McCarthy have together written yet another great book. Their guide is comprehensive, covering pertinent aspects of sex and couples therapy, which they view as being intertwined. Enduring Desire is not only helpful, but easy to read, "straight talk," including many clear, real-life examples. Recently given the Best Book Award 2011 by the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists, Enduring Desire is the most refreshing and enlightening general guide to couple sexuality and intimacy that I have read. It is an important addition to the library of any sex or couples therapist, researcher or clergy person. I most frequently and successfully use this book with my own patients. The exercises are motivating and, with an investment of time and effort, can help couples bring realistic joy to their relationship sex. I have also used this guide with engaged couples who have been referred to me by clergy as part of their church marital preparation programs. My success with the latter group has even led to my giving Enduring Desire as an engagement gift to personal friends on more than one occasion." - Carolee A. Kallmann, Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy
