In Sexual Intelligence, Dr. Marty Klein shows how our ideas about sex--and ourselves--are more important than a perfect body or exotic techniques. With many engaging examples from his thirty-year private practice, Marty provides a robust, practical perspective that makes it impossible for people to fail at sex--because they don't aim for success.
