Several great books have been written on couples sex therapy. Preview them here:
Arousal: The Secret Logic of Sexual Fantasies
by Michael Bader
Psychoanalyst Bader argues that rather than being programmed by society or biology, sexual fantasies and preferences are psychological antidotes to unconscious dangers and should not cause feelings of shame to arise. Using vignettes and case studies from his practice, he interprets both the conventional and the bizarre, presenting readers with a way to understand such issues as sexual chemistry and boredom, cybersex, pornography, and the differences in how men and women get excited.
Assisted Loving: The Journey Through Sexuality and Aging
by Ginger T. Manley
Assisted Loving is a frank discussion of the problems older men and women face as their love lives collide with the challenges of aging. The book probes a broad range of physical and emotional subjects such as ED, prostate cancer, and waning or abandoned interest in physical contact. Its format — a series of columns addressing questions from both men and women — allows readers to easily pick the topics that interest them. – Amazon review

Guide To Getting It On
by Paul Joannides
The Guide To Getting It On! has won five awards and has been translated into 12 foreign languages. It has sold hundreds of thousands of copies from the dorms of UC San Diego to the bedrooms of Tripoli. Some people say The Guide is the best how-to book on sex ever written–we say it’s the most fun to read. It is smart enough to be used in sex education courses, but is also a favorite at stores that sell the kind of sex toys that will land you in the slammer in Mississippi, Alabama and Texas. Schools even use it to train doctors. The Guide covers a full range of topics from romance, necking and losing your virginity, to things we can’t even mention here.
Sex. After. Baby. These three words are spoken in hushed voices over playdates and at playgrounds. But while we may whisper them to our closest girlfriends, or joke about them after one too many beers with the guys, when it comes to talking with our partners about what’s really going on (or not going on, as the case may be) in our child-proofed bedrooms, more and more of us find ourselves tongue-tied and tiptoeing.
In this remarkable new book, Dr. David Schnarch, world-renowned sex and marital therapist and author of Passionate Marriage, offers a groundbreaking approach to resolving sexual difficulties and the relationship problems they cause. By showing couples how they can turn their worst sex and relationship disasters into personal growth and spiritual connection, Dr. Schnarch offers couples the best sex of their lives. In addition to taking an unflinchingly honest, realistic, and erotic approach to sex, Dr. Schnarch reveals the complicated emotional interactions hidden within couples’ most private moments. Resurrecting Sex speaks of compassion, partnership, generosity, and integrity in adult sexual relationships, offering hope to millions of people — golden-anniversary marriages, newly formed couples, and singles alike — who are struggling with sexual difficulties.
Silently Seduced: When Parents Make Their Children Partners
by Kenneth Adams, PhD
Did you have a parent whose love for you felt more confining than freeing, more demanding than giving, more intrusive than nurturing? Did you feel trapped in a “psychological marriage” with this parent? If so, you may be a victim of covert incest. Identification of this kind of incest is difficult, since covert incest victims often feel idealized and privileged, not violated and abused. In Silently Seduced, Dr. Adams, through illustrative case examples and perceptive insight, provides covert incest victims a framework to understand what happened to them, how their lives and relationships continue to be affected and how to begin the process of recovery.
Size Matters: The Hard Facts About Male Sexuality That Every Woman Should Know
by Harry Fisch & Kara Baskin
A man’s anatomy is a lot easier to understand than his mind, and knowing what’s going on down there is just as important to a happy relationship as figuring out the deeper meaning of his every word. You can analyze your relationship with your girlfriends, but who can you turn to with the more . . . sensitive questions? In Size Matters, Dr. Harry Fisch, an expert on the male reproductive system, and writer Kara Baskin team up to introduce you, metaphorically speaking, to the penis. Clearing up mysteries about male anatomy, orgasm, masturbation, STDs, testosterone, impotence, sexual response, and much more, Size Matters is the first women’s user manual for male sexuality—a guidebook that will answer all your questions and lead you to a better sex life. For example:
- Can masturbation have any effect on sex? Can he do it too much . . . or too little?
- He always orgasms before me . . . is there any way to slow him down?
- Do grown men still have wet dreams?
- Can his weight affect our sex life?
Size Matters is a fun, prescriptive, easy-to-understand troubleshooting guide for women who have questions about male sexuality or who want to have better sex. You might not always understand what’s going on in his mind, but now you can know what’s going on in his pants.
