Description:

Peace Between the Sheets offers a simple but revolutionary analysis: modern relationships often founder because of dysfunctional sexual habits. But when couples shift away from "heat-centered" toward "heart-centered" sexual interactions, they gain a mutual satisfaction that transcends physical gratification. Robinson advocates teaching the body a different response to sexual arousal that is driven by love over biology. The benefits include reducing stress, rejuvenating the body, helping overcome addictions, and developing a positive outlook. Over two parts, "Why" and "How," the book devotes twelve chapters to topics like "Why do We Fall Out of Love?," "Outwitting Biology," "Want to Try It?," and "The Ecstatic Exchanges." Peace Between the Sheets tackles a delicate issue with sound reasoning, solid research, and a healthy dose of humor.

Reviews/Endorsements:

"I experienced on 'Aha' after another as I read Peace Between the Sheets. Marnia Robinson's book is entertaining, enlightening, and timely. The hypothesis that orgasm fosters separation fascinated me both personally and professionally. The Ecstatic Exchanges would seem to benefit most relationships, and be particularly helpful for those recovering from sexual addiction and the trauma of sexual abuse."

"As a matchmaker who runs several dating agencies I only wish I could make Peace Between the Sheets compulsory reading for all people seeking a new relationship."
