Rekindling Desire: a Step-By-Step Program to Help Low-Sex and No-Sex Marriages. – book review

Lybi Ma

Brunner-Routledge, March 2003 By Barry McCarthy, Ph.D., and Emily McCarthy

Low sexual desire is distressing, and a startling 40 million Americans are in low-sex and no-sex marriages. To tackle this epidemic, sex therapist Barry McCarthy, Ph.D., and his wife, writer Emily McCarthy, offer a step-by-step approach. Their program aims to help couples confront their inhibitions and feelings of anger, anxiety or shame through developing the behaviors and emotions needed for healthy reconnection. At times, the guide reads like a car manual in its tedious detail, but it does highlight poignant stories of lost intimacy. Read it for a map of how to reunite with tender loving care. For a closer look at healing couples, see “Save Your Relationship” on page 50.
