The sex therapist who compiled the anthology, describes a healthy sexual relationship as one that spans a lifetime, between a man and a woman, who are complete equals in all aspects. It involves all the stages of life - courtship, marriage, passion, life, and old age.

Awesome book. This poetry captures all the emotions of Love, hate, sex, sin and pleasure.
wonderful, delightful, well-earmarked friend of a book. 5 stars
This is NOT a shitty, cheesy book of poetry.
