Passionate Partners Meet and Sex Happens…

But What Happens Next?

When we start dating, the sex happens. All the other relationship stuff hits the fan later. Well, if you’ve picked up this book, it’s later. And if that stuff is starting to get in the way of your relationship (and the sex), it’s time to get to work. (Don’t worry—this work won’t be easy, but it could be fun.)

Do you see yourself in one of these situations (and who hasn’t at one time or another)?

• Coupled, but dissatisfied with your sexual connection

• Coupled, with difficulty communicating

• Coupled in conflict

• Coupled, but looking for new ways to create intimacy and connect

• Coupled, looking for an exclusive or open sexual relationship

• Coupled, but unsure about staying in your relationship

• Single and hoping for a way to sidestep some of the pitfalls of
long-term relationships

Then this book is for you!

In fact, Sex Happens is, quite simply, a book for any gay man at a turning point in his relationship life. Think of it as months of working with a clinical sex therapist, but without having to pay for the weekly sessions! (Plus, the time “on the couch” can be much more fun in your own home—it’s all in the book.)

(Patients under Dr. Leight’s care for couples therapy will be given a complimentary copy of Sex Happens.)
