The book that opened the door to the exciting world of sexual archetypes now in paperback!

Joseph Campbell meets Dr. Ruth in this entertaining and enlightening sex manual. Sexologists Oona Mourier and Jim Herriot identify nine sexual archetypes, and describe how each approaches sex, love, and life. Readers learn which archetypes they and their lovers represent, what their compatibilities are, what their potential clashes may be, and how to resolve those clashes. Most importantly, they learn how to draw upon the aspects of all the archetypes, thereby eliminating boredom in the bedroom and maximizing their sexual pleasure.

The intent is serious, but the approach is lively, fun, and upbeat. Each section offers suggestions for setting the stage: costumes, props, music, foods, atmosphere. Plus step-by-step exercises couples can work through together to evoke the archetypes and explore them to their fullest. It provides concrete instruction, but also shows readers how to explore the magical and mystical aspects of sex as well.
