Review:

"Have you lost your erotic imagination?" asks well-known sex therapist Barbara Keesling. "Has your sensual side gone unexplored for way too long?" Getting Close: A Lover's Guide to Embracing Fantasy and Heightening Sexual Connection is a program of erotic exercises and techniques for women with one goal: "to help you create a profound and lasting sexual bond." Keesling divides the book into three levels of exercises. Level 1 is finding your sexual energy, including getting in touch with your own feelings and thoughts about sexuality, giving yourself variations of sensual massage, dancing, exercising the PC muscle, and exploring sex toys. Level 2 takes you from the purely physical to experiencing emotional and mental erotic connection through exercises like desiring and fantasizing about sex, keeping a sexual secret (such as wearing a skirt without underwear), and writing an obscene letter. Level 3 is "fusion time," finally connecting with your partner with exercises for couples: whole-body touching, requests, "show and tell" with sex toys, "duty-free intercourse" (no expectations or destinations), and making love with constant eye contact. Keesling's style in this sexy book is direct, inviting, playful, and graphically erotic. Enjoy! --Joan Price
