Show synopsis Written out of a longing to live every moment in a deeper intimacy with herself & others, this is the author's very personal odyssey through the intricate world of sexual relationships. Warm, funny, thought provoking, Johnson questions universally-held assumptions about love & sex, asking: Why do relationships cause such anguish? Are couple relationships ever what we think they will be? Do relationships ever work? Is true intimacy possible without sex? Is it possible with sex? Is sex even natural to women, & if not, in our unconditioned state, how would we be intimate? Johnson, a nationally known author & lecturer, has written three previous books in which she dares to challenge the status quo & urges us to rethink our conditioned way of being. This was precipitated by her excommunication from the Mormon church for her support of the Equal Rights Amendment, & her decision to run for the presidency of the United States in 1982. Johnson inspires arousal with her thought-provoking way of writing. As one reviewer put it, "You may not always agree with Sonia Johnson, but one thing is guaranteed, you will never be the same again after reading her works."
