So Tell Me About the Last Time You Had Sex:
Laying Bare and Learning to Repair Our Love Lives

Now available for Pre-order.

Renowned sex therapist Ian Kerner shares his unique and indispensable methodology used to help thousands of couples get unstuck and into sexual sync.

Dr. Ian Kerner is a Sherlock Holmes of the bedroom—a sexual detective helping individuals and couples solve the mystery of their sexual distress. His secret weapon?

Kerner has perfected the art of the “sex script analysis,” a way taking a magnifying glass to a recent sexual event and looking at the entire sequence of interactions—beginning, middle and end—from multiple angles. In those details—the what, where, when, and why of the last time you had sex—all the clues of what went wrong are revealed and the mystery of how to create mutual pleasure can be solved. When our sex scripts work, we let go into arousal and lose ourselves in mutual pleasure; but when they fail, it’s all we can do not to ruminate over the details. What can be learned by looking at your sex life in action?

With wit and warmth, the nationally recognized sex therapist and author of the smash hit She Comes First shows readers how to tap into their erotic personalities and realize their sexual potential. He’ll give you the tools and techniques you need to assess, fix and expand your sex scripts, as well as discuss many common sexual problems that get in the way of happy endings. With the help of decades of clinical insight, the latest sexual science and research, valuable homework assignments, case studies and more, this insightful and original book strips away discomfort and gives couples the ability to not just talk about sex, but to actually do something about it.
