Let's be honest: If it's been years since you had the "talk," it's going to show--in the bedroom and out. As Dr. Fisch, a sexual health and fertility expert at Cornell Medical College and a hit radio talk show host, discovered, lots of couples are having lots of sex...but that doesn't mean they're any good at it. Or satisfied. But life between the sheets doesn't have to be lackluster
In The New Naked, Dr. Fisch brings you the ultimate sex education for grown-ups. This indispensable guide:
-Helps couples master bedroom basics they were never taught in any health class
-Lays bare both men's and women's various sexual needs and perceptions
-Shows couples how to decode their partner's sex speak, navigate the risky business of porn, medical issues, and bad bedroom habits, and fulfill each other's fantasies.
-Unlocks the secrets to successful foreplay with Dr. Fisch's unique LSD system (Listening + Security + Desire), a three-step approach to put the sizzle back in your sexy time
Packed with easy-to-follow advice and stories from real couples, The New Naked will prime you for the greatest sex of your life--and the happiest relationship too.
From earliest times, humanity has found visual expression for the cosmic forces of creation, birth, and passion in artistic representations of human genitalia. Fertility cults centered on phallic worship are well documented, but older and even more pervasive are Goddess images of the vulva-known in the East since ancient times as the yoni. Yoni symbolism is a part of spiritual traditions in every part of the globe-from naturally occuring rock formations revered by North American Native peoples to the shakta-pithas of Hindu temples, and from early Celtic sheela-na-gig carvings to the Japanese kagura ritual.
The Yoni traces this primal motif in Australian Aboriginal folk tales, in alchemy, in Tantric practices, and in contemporary art by painters such as Georgia O'Keefe and Judy Chicago.
The act of reproduction, and its variants, never change much, but our ideas about the meaning of sex are in constant flux. Switch a decade, cross a border, or traverse class lines and the harmless pleasures of one group become the gravest crimes in another.Combining meticulous research and lively storytelling, The Boundaries of Desire traces the fast-moving bloodsport of sex law over the past century, and challenges our most cherished notions about family, power, gender, and identity. Starting when courts censored birth control information as pornography and let men rape their wives, and continuing through the "sexual revolution" and into the present day (when rape, gay rights, sex trafficking, and sex on the internet saturate the news), Berkowitz shows how the law has remained out of synch with the convulsive changes in sexual morality. By focusing on the stories of real people, Berkowitz adds a compelling human element to what might otherwise be faceless legal battles. The law is made by people, after all, and nothing sparks intolerance - on the left and right -- more than sex. Ultimately, Berkowitz shows the emptiness of sanctimonious condemnation, and argues that sexual questions are too subtle and volatile for simple, catch-all solutions.
Moves reflexology beyond the realm of foot massage and into the realm of sexuality.- Offers acupressure methods to build intimacy and heighten sexual pleasure. - Helps couples find their sexual energy potential and physical compatibility. - Provides techniques to perform time-tested Taoist sexual-spiritual exercises. - By Mantak Chia, coauthor of The Multi-Orgasmic Man. The most powerful reflex points on the body are on the sexual organs. While the practice of reflexology is normally associated with massage of the feet, in Sexual Reflexology Mantak Chia gives applications for using the sexual reflex points in lovemaking, transforming sexual intercourse into a form of ecstatic acupressure. By combining the classic Taoist sexual texts with modern reflexology theory, the author provides a unique opportunity for couples to practice sexual intimacy as an act of healing. Mantak Chia shows how to evaluate a person's sexual energy potential as well as how the size and shape of the sexual organs determine a couple's compatibility. In addition to the specific ecstatic acupressure exercise instructions, he provides thoughtful commentary on ancient Taoist practices that reveal how we can all use our sexual essence to create healthy and loving relationships.

The 1964 publication of Sir Richard Burton's translation marked the first wide appearance in English of the Kama Sutra and was celebrated as a literary event of highest importance. As vital to an understanding of ancient Indian civilization as the works of Plato and Aristotle are to the West, the Kama Sutra has endured for 1,700 years as an indisputable classic of world literature.
Written with frankness and unassuming candor, the Kama Sutra remains one of the most readable and enjoyable of all the classics of antiquity. A work of philosophy, psychology, sociology, Hindu dogma, scientific inquiry, and sexology, the Kama Sutra's importance is so great that it has at the same time both affected Indian civilization and remained an indispensable key to understanding it.

C mo mantener los niveles ptimos de testosterona en el hombre mediante el uso de hierbas, suplementos nutricionales y la alimentaci n- Revela pruebas cient ficas sobre agentes ambientales que bloquean la testosterona y que alteran el funcionamiento qu mico del cuerpo masculino en la medida en que este envejece - Presenta medicinas herbarias org nicas y seguras que pueden restablecer los niveles ptimos de testosterona - Contiene los tratamientos naturales m s recientes para tratar la impotencia, la infertilidad y las disfunciones de pr stata La identificaci n de la andropausia, la etapa que ocurre durante la madurez en los hombres y que es comparable a la menopausia femenina, se ve obstaculizada por la falta de una clara manifestaci n externa en la qu mica y fisiolog a propias de los individuos de edad avanzada. Los hombres son capaces de fecundar m s all de la edad madura. Sin embargo, su deseo y potencia sexual var an, a menudo de acuerdo con su nivel de testosterona. Estudios recientes muestran que los bajos niveles de testosterona prevalentes en varones de edad avanzada--un descenso gradual que es bastante normal--se ven agravados por elementos del medio ambiente. Pero, como indican investigaciones m dicas recientes, la terapia de reemplazo de testosterona con dosis bajas de la hormona no es una opci n adecuada porque aumenta el riesgo de problemas cardiovasculares como el infarto del miocardio o derrames cerebrales y, adem s, porque el cuerpo puede hacerse dependiente de la testosterona farmac utica y dejar de producirla por s mismo. En esto libro, Stephen Harrod Buhner muestra por qu los hombres necesitan ayuda para mantener los niveles de testosterona a medida en que envejecen y explica c mo fitoandr genos naturales--plantas medicinales que contienen hormonas masculinas--pueden corregir sin riesgos la disminuci n de testosterona que ejerce el medio ambiente. Buhner detalla c mo funciona cada fitoandr geno, cu ndo puede usarse y el m todo m s apropiado de empleo, de forma que proporcione a todos los hombres medios seguros, naturales y eficaces que conserven sus niveles ptimos de testosterona hasta bien entrada la tercera edad.
