Everything You Know About Love and Sex Is Wrong
Twenty-five Relationship Myths Redefined to Achieve Happiness and Fulfillment in your Intimate LifeBook - 2000
Many of us have been brought up with common beliefs about intimacy and love that are not only untrue but also potentially damaging. What we've heard from our mothers, our friends, or from the media has become so ingrained that we-intentionally or not-force ourselves and our partners to adhere to certain rules or behavior that can be self-destructive. In the provocative and audacious style that has become her hallmark, Pepper Schwartz questions assumptions, challenges values, and breaks rules. Drawing on compelling stories of individuals with whom she has worked and the studies she has conducted over the past two decades, Dr. Schwartz uncovers a new way to understand our most intimate relationships. As she explores why we believe these myths to be true and why they seem to have such an enduring influence, she also provides fresh alternatives that allow us to discover more fulfilling emotional lives.
