Sexpert Dr Ian Kerner teaches women how they can avoid the relationship blues and get the love - and the sex - they deserve.

This is a confusing time for many women. There's a pressure to be sexually liberated and pursue pleasure for its own sake, to have sex 'like a man'. However, there are deeply rooted biological and emotional factors that lead women to crave a committed relationship. The result? Many women pursue dead-end relationships hoping a 'real' relationship might emerge from a meaningless one, and end up having their false hopes dashed when the guy in question makes it clear that his intentions are purely sexual and short-term.
These days, writes Kerner, waiting to have sex on the third date is considered quaint and old-fashioned. Kerner decodes the way both genders look at sex and transient relationships, arming women with a better set of expectations and insights into turning the casual relationship into something more satisfying.
With his characteristic humour and sincerity, Kerner says what's going on in the male mind, showing women how to stop having purely sex-driven relationships, and create the committed relationships that they're looking for.
