Summary "Most of us long for an intimate relationship, and though texting and emailing may keep us superficially connected and feeling momentarily sexy, it ultimately cannot create the kind of intimacy necessary to sustain a deep, fulfilling, and lasting partnership. With the divorce rate reaching a staggering 50 percent in 2013 and the breakup rate among unmarried long-term couples even higher, it appears that the more we tweet, the more disconnected we become. So many of us believe that new is better, hotter, and more intense, but love at first sight isn't really love; it's chemistry. Developing the connections and intimacy that everyone craves takes time and skill. In Partners in Passion, Michaels and Johnson provide readers with a fun, step-by-step, phase-by-phase guide to discovering true, deep, loving, and romantically sexual relationships that will last for decades. Comprehensive and inclusive, Partners in Passion is highly original and provocative, drawing on a variety of sources: cutting-edge science, psychology, the authors' background in tantra, and their personal experiences as teachers and as a couple. Partners in Passion invites couples to design their own relationships and to choose consciously, and is replete with how-to suggestions and exercises, fortified by interviews with couples from diverse backgrounds, relationship styles, and orientations who are enjoying erotically vibrant partnerships"-- Provided by publisher.
