Pepper Schwartz offers a refreshing, unique take on the old and established assumptions that people hold when it comes to sex and love. Twenty-five relationship myths are examined for the reasons they have been widely held and believed for so long, reevaluated with a frank and keen eye for why they should be dismissed, and replaced with modern, reality-based ideas. The author draws on her years of professional and personal experience, bolstered by illuminating case studies. Dr. Schwartz demystifies such notions as "Women are not into sex toys", "All committed couples should pool their money", and "You can't be in love with two people at once" in order to show that it is possible to let go of the myths that undermine our relationships.
