I gave this book to my 28-year-old son five years ago. He said it was the first book written by a man about women and sex that made perfect sense to him. He was in a relationship that was leading to marriage; this book gave him major insight into himself and women. He still thanks me today. I recommended he read it again, once a year is good.
I cannot recommend this book highly enough not only for men but women to read also. Deida has a depth of understanding into the basic differences between men and women and how those differences when understood are the delight and joy that bonds the relationship.
One of David’s statements is, “ One of the deepest feminine desires in intimacy (though not in business or simple friendship) is to be able to relax and surrender, knowing that her man is taking care of everything. Like the ocean, the native state of the feminine is to flow with great power and no single direction. The masculine builds canals, dams, and boats to unite with the power of the feminine ocean and go from point A to point B. The feminine moves in many directions at once. The feminine is pure energy”
His perspective of relationships is based in Monogamy and has some limitations to the couples you enjoy an open spirit. There are a few statements that appear possessive and men better watch their P’s & Q’s. Men are naturally visual and a beautiful sunset or woman is going to catch their eye. To suppress this is not healthy. If the relationship is solid the looking is not harmful.
If you are a couple, read one chapter at a time and discuss it.
This is a must read. Deida has many other books and Cd’s ( Living Sacred Intimacy is one) that are great to listen to when on a long drive together. Great to discuss your feelings and reactions to his inspirational teachings.
