What makes sex magnificent? What are the qualities of extraordinary erotic intimacy, and what are the elements that help to bring it about? Is great sex the stuff that people remember nostalgically from the "honeymoon" phase of their relationships, or can sex improve over time?
Magnificent Sex is based on the largest, in-depth interview study ever conducted with people who are having extraordinary sex. It gathers the nuggets for remarkable sex from the "experts", distilling them into an attainable blueprint for ordinary lovers who want to make erotic intimacy grow over the course of a lifetime. Looking at factors including individual and relational qualities, empathic communication, and the myths and realities of magnificent sex, this book offers accessible and evidence-based guidance for lovers and therapists alike. It is replete with frank and often humorous interviews with straight and LGBTQ individuals and couples, those who are "vanilla" and "kinky", monogamous and consensually non-monogamous and healthy and chronically ill. This illuminating book explores the implications of the findings to develop a model that effectively tackles the common problems of low desire and frequency. The "cure" for low desire is to create desirable sex!

After several entertaining and helpful reads about similar topics surrounding partnership and sexuality, I put this book aside and will delete it from my e-book reader.
There were 2 sentences that made me smile.
"We only have sex once per week. It lasts for 31/2 days!"
You will never regret anything that made you smile!
I have 11/2 pages of notes as a result of reading the book, so I did find a number of positives.
The book also tackles some common myths surrounding sexuality, especially in western culture:
“Most of the time, media definitions of sexuality tend to be riddled with gender stereotypes and sexual myths. The belief in these myths may actually engender sexual problems rather than fixing them.”
Humor and an abundance of candid quotes from participants in the study are interspersed throughout the chapters, keeping the flow of information to a manageable level. I liked this comment:
“I have no idea how people got, had great sex before there was indoor plumbing. You know, ‘cause all this, you figure all this joyous sexual stuff that, you know, this all, both people just bathed, and you know they’re clean and they don’t have fleas all over them and they’re not cold or hot ...so many amenities we take for granted.”
Turning the focus from low desire as a “problem” to fix to “how can we make sex more fun and satisfying so it’s worth having?” is a revolutionary idea in sex education and therapy.
The study also concludes that magnificent sex can continue into our 60’s, 70’s, 80’s+:
“It gets better as you get older if you’re smart enough to grow into your capacity for being human.”
Why settle for anything less?!
