Most of us long for intimate relationships, and though texting and emailing may keep us superficially connected, it ultimately cannot create the kind of intimacy necessary to sustain a deep, fulfilling, and lasting partnership. With the divorce rate reaching a staggering 50 percent in 2013 and the breakup rate among unmarried long-term couples even higher, it appears that the more we tweet, the more disconnected we become. So many of us believe that new is better, hotter, and more intense, but love at first sight isn't really love, it's chemistry.In Partners in Passion, Michaels and Johnson provide readers with a fun, step-by-step guide to discovering true, loving, and romantically sexual relationships that will last for decades. Comprehensive and inclusive, Partners in Passion is original and provocative, drawing on a variety of sources: cutting-edge science, psychology, the authors' background in tantra, and personal experiences as teachers and as a couple. Partners in Passion invites couples to design their relationships and to choose consciously, and is replete with how-to suggestions and exercises, including interviews with couples from diverse backgrounds, relationship styles, and orientations who are enjoying erotically vibrant partnerships.

Married Tantric instructors Michaels and Johnson draw from personal and professional experience to put readers on the path towards a long-term intimacy that is satisfying and exciting. They emphasize sex as a “co-creation” between lovers, where partners are “comrades on an exciting journey,” while criticizing relationship myths like the “soul mate” and forms of “gender essentialism” that pit men against women. Though they insist it is “just a general overview,” their anatomy and physiology lesson contains a wealth of information that may surprise readers. The authors address Tantra, explaining the ritual of “giving and receiving sessions” and the concept of “becoming aware of energy and working with it deliberately.” More adventurous readers can delve into role-playing and more advanced kinks—which are approached from a Tantric perspective—and the authors discuss differences between open relationships, swinging, and polyamory, with the attendant sexual and emotional implications of each. Other topics include handling sexual problems, from desire discrepancy to medical dysfunctions, and maintaining an active sex life at an advanced age. With a thorough resource guide included, this book runs the gamut on sex education, and the authors’ sex-positivity, feminism, and rejection of gender stereotypes makes it a welcome addition to the genre.
