...It is idiotic from the onset due to its premise and delivery. If the author had just said, "here are some ideas that will spice up your sex life", and been on with it, that would have been okay. But her delivery amounts to "wow, what a discovery I made, this is the secret to all unhappy couples across the world!". The secret basically being that she forced herself to have sex on a consistent basis with her partner and found that it was a good thing for her and her relationship.
The biggest problem is that in delivery, her message is about as authoritative as the opinions of a 17 year old. It's almost embarassing enduring her elaborate gushing about what an amazing and great thing it is. I'm reminded of Steve Martin in the movie "The Jerk", having sex for the first time and so excitedly telling everyone that he'd found his "special purpose" in life.

Which isn't to say that some forms of "sex therapy" isn't good for some couples. I believe that's the response we're hearing from 4 and 5-star reviews. Anticipation of the sexual act, along with creative ideas for how to make sex more fun, can certainly bring the focus around for some couples who are looking for more spice in their sex life. If that's what you're looking for, skip all the pages where the author is embarassing herself, and just go straight to the love-making ideas.

I bought the book for my partner and I (his upcoming Christmas gift...) and think it's certainly worth a try for any couple who wants to become closer and enjoy better sex. The profiles of 38 couples' experiences illustrate that each can take her ideas and put them together in unique ways to fit their personalities and situations. Perhaps one of the most important aspects is that the book gives "permission" to be fun, creative, and passionate. A small investment for a possibly huge payoff. I'd say go for it.

I am always on the lookout for good books that help enhance my level of intimacy, and Laura Corn's The Great American Sex Diet is the best sex guidebook I have ever read! Sex therapist Laura Corn has cooked up the perfect ingredients to intensify couples' intimacy in twenty-eight days. Thus, making this book one of the most insightful and fulfilling reads I've ever had! I urge couples to pick up this great book!

I have all of Laura's books and honestly, some are 3 stars or less. This one, however, is a clear winner. It is obvious she took a lot of time and effort in this one (perhaps now that she has a publisher, they have helped her with this). The concept is simple and therefore not too difficult for most people to follow.
Her tips in most sections are quite good - not too wild or kinky, but sensual enough that it has the desired results -- more passion.
One thing missing is ideas for romance to go along with the sex (romance and sex ARE two different things). If I keep tearing out pages just to fulfill my sexual lust then something is missing. If the only time I am paying attention to my partner and treating them nicely is during a sexual escapade, then they could start to feel like I'm using them.
I have found a good solution in the book, The Romantic's Guide by Michael Webb --it has thousands of creative ideas for letting someone know they are special (not just because you want to have sex with them).
If you use these two books in tandem, you will have the ingredients for a very blissful relationship.

An exceptional way to become reintroduced to your partner! This book is extremely well-thought-out and designed, down to the pull-out His & Her sections and calendars. Sexually and sensually addressed, the book contains all sorts of options, tips, tricks and suggestions, but never resorting to being offensive or crude.
This is wonderfully crafted means of "spicing" up relationships, and surprisingly enhances love & romance as the main tool to use between the sheets. Order this book only if you want things to heat up in a hurry, and to last a lifetime.
Six stars (if they had the option).

After a few years of struggling with sexuality and two different therapists, my wife and I seem to have found a groove with the ideas presented in this book. The love of my life is mostly "reserved" in her sexual identity. The ideas in this book are not for that type of individual but what the book offers simply by its' purchase is an opportunity for polar opposite types of personalities to get more in touch with "the other side".
My wife and I are polar opposites. I enjoy sex and basically, she doesn't. It's not because she doesn't love me but she simply doesn't have the drive. With this book we have been able to explore ourselves simply by giving the ideas presented an honest chance. We have done just that and I tell you what, I'm already seeing dramatic changes just by our willingness to try new things. When you purchase the book, don't be put off by the "toys", give them a chance. I had never tried them before, nor had my wife, but she surely enjoyed it which in turn made it a great experience for me as well.

For those who complained about the misleading title insulting their intelligence... well, I question their intelligence. And by reading their dry, scientific approach to reviewing the book -- I would guess that they wouldn't be able to appreciate the content of the book.
Hey, if you're in a rut and are looking for ways to get the fire back into your relationship -- buy this book.
