    I don't know how many people will buy into the idea that orgasm is bad for you I certainly have always enjoyed my own and I am for the most part happily married for going on 28 years However maybe the idea that we are focusing upon orgasm too much and that it is hurting the overall relationship is an idea I can consider The author goes into the biological impact of orgasm upon the brain and that is very interesting in itself She also explains how the pair bond is formed and the effects of pa

    Okay so this book is very repetitious VERY For the need for editing to cut the book by 23 I would give this book a star or two BUT for the ideas I would give it five stars So despite the drastic need for editing I'm giving it all five starsBecause the ideas are worth getting to They really are At least they were for me The book gave me scientific reasoning to explain why my marriage is so awesome Basically what we've been up to is bonding instead of mating It was great to have someone explain it a

    For those who simply want the science first read the 'How Do I Explain This Book To My Friends?' A Synopsis Of Key Ideas section at the end of the book then begin reading at chapter 4

    ILL I keep dreading reading this to do an adeuate review Next time just do one chapterRead the Goodreads description of this book It was probably written by the author This book does NOT have the newest neuroscience As far as I know it uses ideas out of context and junk science Not in the mainstream of science at all about KerrezaIt gets one star because I don't like this book It doesn't steer people in a usefull direction IMHO However it is clear alright just clearly wrongBiology has plans for your love life

    Nice book that directly rather than wishy washy and ethereally discusses the Taoist lovemaking the physical ramifications of orgasm based sex and channeling energy between partners Very practical with sound examples Through reading this book I'm FINALLY connecting as to why after I sleep with someone I don't want to be around them and would rather throw them away and move onto someone new And why even with my best efforts sex still seemed like combative showmanship in orgasm achievement Fascinating book and I highl

    What I like so farGood argument but no solid conclusionTo be clear there are no actual studies that Karezza in and of itself saves marriages or rebuilds lost passion in a relationship However the reason why this book is very interesting is that the author has collected enough science and research from neurology zoology anthropology and psychology to make a very compelling case that orgasm centered sexuality creates an undesired neurobiological reaction that is responsible for lost romantic passions I like that What she d

    This book offers insight into the neurochemical changes that take place during various stages of romantic relationshipsencounters As a person who likes to learn about mind body connections it was really interesting for me to learn about how the early infatuation stages of a romance are neurochemically speaking pretty much like being on drugs I had uite a few a ha moments reading this The book not only explains in simple terms which neurochemical changes take place and what causes them but also how to circumvent your primitive

    I'm very ambivalent about giving this book 4 stars because of the many instances where the author misrepresents or cherry picks scientific studies to support her thesis For reference I am currently a working neuroscientist but in my former line of work I studied the psychology of addictive behaviors The author unuestioningly embraces the dopamine reward hypothesis and a naive interpretation of brain plasticity The dopaminereward hypothesis has been effectively criticized by experts as overly simplistic eg The mysterious motivationa

    A really interesting perspective on the biological neurological and psychological conseuences of orgasm Thoroughly engrossing the facts and research as well as the 'ancient wisdom' tidbits spread throughout really make the book fun to read It gives a lot of insight into our own behavior and can really help you acuire focus If you're in a relationship already I definitely recommend it for both partners to read together and share with each other it's that kind of book

    Could having too much sex be ruining your relationship? Yup turns out it can This book dives into why we do what we do and how we can use the different parts of our brain to not only have fulfilling relationships but be happier in generalI'd recommend this book for anyone who wants to make their relationship work and work well after the initial 1 2 year honeymoon periodThis book was repetitive in parts but I liked it It helped me learn and retain the information
