Sinai, has very provocative things to say about S-E-X: Facebook is making sex obsolete, but you can do something about it. ‘Sex dates’ won’t cure a sexless marriage. Good communication can ruin good sex. Men still don’t understand women [our comment: Ya think?]. And he ponders if we are REALLY born to cheat. Stepehn Snyder is the author of the upcoming book, Love Worth Making: How to have ridiculously great sex in a long lasting relationship. Info: sexualityresource.com.
