Written by Dr. Love, a sex therapist with an aptronym if ever there was one, Hot Monogamy is no contradiction in terms. Comedian Dave Barry may joke about his guide to "marriage and/or sex," but Dr. Love's book proves that becoming sensually and "sexually fluent" is a skill that can send flames soaring, no matter how long you've been a couple or how humdrum your sex life h...more

As you can guess from the title, this book is skewed towards a monogamous viewpoint. That's not really an issue for me as I tend towards monogamy.

Don't you just love this title?
Seen at a Goodwill in South Pittsburg, TN.
The content and writing style are old-fashioned and outdated, and sometimes conflicted with more recent data in other books on marriage/sex I've read. Some of the ideas and exercises I disagreed with and some I had already thought of on my own. But I still got some helpful nuggets out of it.
Overall a good book for couples to read to better understand why they should be talking about sex and what they can do to better enjoy it.

There is some crude language in the case studies and some of the interventions they suggest are outdated.
