Do you know the secret to good sex? Here's a hint: it has little to do with romantic dinners or lingerie or walks on the beach or even pheromones ... it's all about vulnerability, trust, resilience, and persistence. Loveologist Wendy Strgar explores all this and more in her new book Sex That Works.
In her bold new book Feminine Genius, LiYana Silver compares the cycles in our bodies with the four seasons of the natural world. She walks us through a powerful process of syncing with our cycles instead of resisting them.

It undercuts the intrinsic power of choosing what not to do.
When beloved restaurateur, magazine publisher, and celebrity chef B. Smith at age sixty-two became forgetful, preoccupied, and temperamental, her husband, Dan Gasby, worried that their loving marriage was on the rocks. Then came the morning he could no longer deny what was happening to B.—the day they both had to admit that something was terribly wrong and that they needed medical help.
