Love Skills is what you need to bring more fun and exhilaration into your intimate relationships. From her experience as a psychologist specialising in human sexuality Linda De Villers sets out a logical and progresive path to uncover issues and lead any couple to greater sexual fuflfilment.
LoveTalk deals with communication in the relationship and covers both ordninary issues (Vertical LoveTalk) and then more intimate issues (Horizontal LoveTalk).
BodyLove deals with issues of body image and self acceptance as well as accepting your lover’s body – body image is a big issue for many women, and an increasing number of men these days.
This leads on to the section on touch with Affectionate Touch, Sensual Touch and Sexual Touch. I found this the most helpful part of the book. It sets out the scientific context of touch in human love and communication and exposes the many social and cultural prohibitions on touch. The positive potential of learning the language of touch in a relationship cannot be over emphasised and I found these sections informative as well as inspiring. The exercises were explained well and I think would be good for any couple to undertake to get to know themselves better.
LovePlay was the icing on the cake of all the other contributors to passion with suggestions for variety in the couple’s interactions but based on mutual consent. Oral sex was also covered as a major contributor to more fulfilling sex and often a taboo subject with many couples (the book was published in 1996). The final chapter is advice for couples on moving out of their comfort zones and how to do it safely and steadily, not abusing their individual sense of identity and or core values.
