|Using a fly on the wall approach, the book follows a conversation between a couple, Matt and Sarah, who spend a weekend getaway to rekindle their closeness. As they interact, we see that Matt (like many men) wants sex-more often, more enjoyably, more creatively, more, more, more-while Sarah wants (like many women) to feel more known, more appreciated, more connected, more cherished.
Syrios is not afraid to get very specific about what all that "more" involves-including foreplay, sexual techniques, role play, oral sex plus the balance of partnering in household work, parenting children, thoughtful gestures and romantic time together.
"We as individuals bring a unique and often gender-based 'love frame' into our primary love relationship," says Syrios. "The more we understand and operate within our partner's unique love frame, the more they will feel loved by us and the deeper our relationship will grow in mutual respect and affection. Love includes three key ingredients: intimacy, passion and commitment. When all three are present and growing something wonderful, even magical happens-a lifelong love affair."
The 359-page book includes a series of exercises in intimacy couples can complete in order to more deeply appreciate each person's needs and love frame. Crossover Press will publish Intimate Conversations for Couples in print and in electronic versions on February 14, 2014. Sound like a familiar date? Indeed, it is!
