9780060984281: The Erotic Mind: Unlocking the Inner Sources of Passion and Fulfillment

Challenging accepted theories about what makes for terrific sex, The Erotic Mind is a breakthrough exploration of the least understood dimensions of human sexuality—the psychology of desire, arousal, and fulfillment. Nationally known sex therapist Dr. Jack Morin offers a bold new perspective that celebrates the joys of Eros without denying its risks.

Based on an in-depth analysis of over 1,000 provocative stories of peak sexual experiences, The Erotic Mind offers clear, accessible guidance on how anyone can utilize his or her own peak encounters and fantasies as powerful tools of self-discovery.

The Erotic Mind explains the many paradoxes of erotic life, such as: why we're most excited when we must overcome obstacles; how anxiety, guilt, and anger—generally thought to have a negative impact on sexual arousal—often turn out to be aphrodisiacs; how we use unresolved issues from our early lives to intensify passion; and why the best sex is dynamic and unpredictable, rather than static and safe.

These and other insights, combined with concrete suggestions for increasing our enjoyment, overcoming our problems, and revitalizing our relationships, will change forever the way we think about our eroticism.

From the Publisher:

A breakthrough exploration of the least understood dimensions of human sexuality--the psychology of desire, arousal, and fulfillment--from nationally known sex therapist Jack Morin.

About the Author:

Jack Morin has been studying the mysteries of Eros for nearly two decades, often exploring uncharted territory.

He is the world's foremost expert on peak erotic experiences, including real-life encounters as well as fantasies. He has studied these remarkably revealing and fulfilling experiences with the help of his patients in therapy and also by analyzing anonymous responses to his "Sexual Excitement Survey," a powerful tool for self-discovery which you'll find in the book.

He is a diplomat of the American Board of Sexology, a board-certified sex therapist, and a licensed psychotherapist in the San Francisco Bay Area. He speaks regularly to professional and lay audiences across the country.
