Resurrecting Sex (2002) is a guidebook for couples struggling to connect intimately and emotionally due to sexual dysfunction.

It offers a holistic approach to addressing these issues – and to exploring the erotic potential of your relationship.

I finished the book with an impression that the author got to his suggestions through somewhat of a winding process and so his explanations seemed at times as similarly elusive and difficult to pin down. I think in the world of self-help books, there are easier and more accessible texts on relationships and communication. However, the book does have a very endearing tone to it and the advice is nonetheless sound and helpful. So despite the specific writing style, I do give it my full backing. I ...more

I was curious to cross-reference Nicole Daedone's "Orgasmic Meditation" technique with this highly-praised work. Well, to begin with, this book is quite different in nature as it places a greater emphasis on curing male sexual issues. I was a little skeptical at first, given the fact that Dr. Schnarch devotes about 15 pages to praising himself and his own work, and all while promising grand miracles in the style of a television ad. However, when delving into the actual text I was amazed at how t ...more

Okay, I did NOT finish this book. It had a suggestion that people in a crisis stage start kind of in the middle-ish, so I did that, and then after I covered the "crisis" part (not labeled as such), I went back to the beginning. I liked some of the concepts from what I DID manage to get finished, but the approach here is presented fairly technically. I'm pretty bright, and you don't just grasp what the author is getting at right away. I switched to more "easy" material that I could get through qu ...more

I thought twice about posting this, but quickly said what the fuck. After 19 years of marriage, what couple wouldn't need some rejuvenation! Don't expect a review after I read it however....

I just can't seem to get thru this book. I bought his first...Passionate Marriage. I'll give that a shot and maybe come back to this one.

Definitely worth reading for clinicians if you like Schnarch's approach. I'd first recommend his other books though, especially for the general public. ...more
