The Relate Guide to Sex and Intimacy

The Relate Guide to Sex and Intimacy


Sex and intimacy are what make couple relationships special and different. We may even measure the quality of the relationship by how intimate we feel or how good the sex is. This can be wonderfully reassuring when it goes well, but we all have times in our lives and relationships when we don’t feel so close. When sex isn’t working well or isn’t happening, confidence in the relationship can ebb away too. Yet there is plenty you can do to turn things around and recapture the fading intimacy.

In The Relate Guide to Sex and Intimacy, Cate Campbell takes a realistic look at modern relationships, steering you through practical exercises, examples, quizzes and talking points to help give your sexual self and your relationship an intimacy makeover. Comprehensively tackling the issues that challenge sex and intimacy, this book will both equip you to understand and manage problems when they arise and to make a good sex life even better.
