This paradigm-shifting guide to eros in committed relationships has been being hailed as the most practical, fun, empowering sex book on the market today. Dr Snyder turns traditional sex therapy inside-out to explain the hidden rules of desire, and in the process tackles some of the most vexing sex questions of our time—Including the most difficult of all: Can sex survive monogamy?”

Love Worth Making answers this question with a resounding yes. Gentle, compassionate and filled with compelling stories from his thirty years as a sex therapist, Love Worth Making will appeal to individual couples of all ages seeking greater erotic fulfillment in a committed relationship.
