In the journey to sexual sobriety, many recovering sex addicts find themselves wondering, "Will I ever have an exciting and fulfilling romantic relationship?" or "Can I repair my marriage now that I've confessed my destructive behavior?" and "Will I ever have great sex again?" The answers to all three questions are, "Yes, yes, and yes."
As a sex, marriage, and family therapist, Alexandra Katehakis has helped thousands of recovering sex addicts and their partners discover and hone their "erotic intelligence," or their ability to make sexual choices that affirm life in healthy, imaginative, and exciting ways. By embracing their erotic intelligence, they can make sense of the past, create new and healthy habits in the present, and look toward a more intimate, erotic, and spiritual relationship in the future that nurtures honesty and closeness. With Katehakis' help, sex addicts can get in touch with their healthy sexual side—and when they are ready, be able to embrace true intimacy and acceptance in themselves and in their partners.
With exercises, practical tips, and true stories of both singles and couples who have been successful on their path, Erotic Intelligence is a must-read for those in recovery and those who love them.
