Dr. Marianne Brandon, co-author of “Reclaiming Desire” with site Medical Director Dr. Andrew Goldstein, is the author of a new book, Monogamy: The Untold Story. Here is the introduction and excerpt from the book. See Dr. Brandon’s brief bio at the end of the excerpt.
As a clinical psychologist and sex therapist, I have devoted many years to helping people open and feel alive, both emotionally and physically. I myself have walked the same path I assist others in traveling every day. It is clear to me that when we are disengaged from any part of ourselves, including our sexuality, our hearts and bodies close in response. When we close, we stop evolving, and we no longer live and love to our fullest potential. Our lives lack creativity and joy, spontaneity and humor. As a culture, we have supported this unfortunate process in each other by ignoring the realities of our sexual instincts.
