Anyone can have great sex, now and always, without achieving contortionist positions or finding that elusive G-spot. Great sex is not about physical prowess; it's about intimacy, and about understanding those ineffable forces that bring people together in the first place. Often, differences rather than similarities in style and personality result in attraction. By learning to understand these forces, couples are better able to communicate, to achieve intimacy -- and so to enjoy "Extraordinary Sex."To help everyone achieve this optimum physical and emotional gratification, Dr. Scantling has devised a simple but accurate paradigm of the four basic personality types with easy-to-remember animal equivalents: Energizers (Lions), Stabilizers (Bears), Workers (Bees), and Pleasure-Seekers (Otters). If you're a diligent, overachieving worker bee, and your partner is a playful, devil-may-care otter, you may each be blind to the other's needs -- and losing out on potentially great sex. Through storytelling, anecdotes, and an easy-to-complete quiz, readers will learn to identify their own sexual styles -- as well as those of their partners -- to understand why they each behave as they do, and above all, to find out how they can modify their styles and achieve "Extraordinary Sex Now."This is an inspirational, must-have guide for any couple seeking to rekindle passion. Dr. Scantling proves that lovemaking need never grow dull -- that it can be an ongoing, joyous event

This is one of those self-help books that asks you to choose what type of animal you are (lion, bear, bee, otter) and then gives suggestions for each type. Surprisingly, this seemingly dopey approach ... Read full review
