Reviews - What do customers think about When Two Become One: Enhancing Sexual Intimacy in Marriage?
The Soul of Sex Jul 20, 2005
The McCluskeys understand and speak to the inextricable connection between body and spirit. They view sex as a form of communication, so it's natural that they focus on what's being communicated. It's at this deeper level, they contend, that most sexual problems and frustrations begin. And they can only be cured at the source-in the soul.
They avoid the degrading lingo that most people default to in discussions of sex. Each chapter begins with a character sketch of a marriage from Christopher's casebook, and the stories resonate, touching on issues all couples struggle through. My cheeks flushed as I saw my own mistakes woven through others' experiences. But the book's gentle tone makes this bearable.
With this book, the McCluskeys have set a new standard for the genre. Much more than a manual, When Two Become One speaks to and about the holy longing in each of us, a longing for God in our physical experience of each other.
2 become 1 Jul 7, 2005
I am newly married and found this book a bit disappointing. It didn't include anything on STD's, infections, birth control or address problems that you may run into. Because of these missing pieces it is not a book I would refer back to and keep on my shelf. The book does give recommendations for other book that we have read and we found those more helpful. I would recommend "intended for pleasure" instead because it is more complete.
Truly becoming intimately one Sep 29, 2004
When Two Become One has become one of the most important touchstones for my wife and I as we struggle through our day to day life. The innovative "Lovemaking Cycle" helps us focus our attention on the parts of our life that create the underpinnings for a secure and happy marriage. We had a good marriage before we read this book...now we have a great marriage.
Coaching Couples into Passionate Intimacy Sep 2, 2004
Chris and Rachel McCluskey coach couples into deepening their love and sexual enjoyment of each other---in very insightful and refreshing ways. I think it is helpful for everyone from newlyweds to those married for a long time who want great information with a desire to build a more passionate love life than they often have had modeled for them. Their Lovemaking Cycle is an especially helpful model for practically falling deeper in love and enhancing lovemaking. Buy this book and you are in for some fun, informative and exciting reading.
Great book on the heart of sex Aug 26, 2004
This isn't a manual, but a book on the heart of sex. It includes a neat way of looking at the sex act (Lovemaking Cycle) that is useful in helping spouses talk to each other about what does and doesn't work during lovemaking. The large question/answer section also gives interesting insight and help for common issues. Add this to a good manual (like Celebration of Sex) and you have a great reference library for any couple.
