Love, Stress and Sex Applying the 8 Steps to Love to the Stress of Love & Sex By Dr. Stephen Royal Jackson, Ph.D.
Love, Stress, and Sex - DR. STEPHEN ROYAL JACKSON
“Two currents whose union is necessary to insure a completely normal attitude in love…failed to combine. These two currents may be distinguished as the affectionate and the sensual current.” —Sigmund FreudIt’s been nearly a century since Freud wrote these words and yet they describe a problem Dr. Jackson saw in his practice. In doing in-depth therapy with adults, adolescents, and children, he saw how stress can injure our ability to fuse love and sex. He discovered how the stress of conflicts in love dating back to the earliest most vulnerable times of our life directly affects the quality of our adult love life. So many of the sexual complaints Dr. Jackson heard from both women and men related to the split between love and sex.Everyday we see evidence of a divide between love and sex. The media is often filled with stories of some of the best and brightest among us who were unable to unite the currents of affection (love) and sensuality (sex). Sex scandals have led the news for years. And the scandals have included an impressive array of the talented and influential: American presidents, TV evangelists, rock stars, and sports stars. Even Elvis, the man voted the greatest entertainer of the last century and the sexy heart throb of millions of fainting females, had a problem fusing love and sex in his love life.If more men and women could achieve the capacity to be hot for the one they love, there would be less debasing sexual behavior. There would be less of a need for prostitutes, internet porn sites, extramarital affairs, or for incurring high credit card charges for phone sex. Deep therapy is not the only way to remove the blocks to a fulfilling love life. Taken from Dr. Jackson’s clinical experience and from his Stress Effectiveness Training seminars this book is an application of key concepts found in 8 Steps to Love and in A Matter of Love. Would you like to release your capacity for a more deeply fulfilling love life? Would you like to help your partner? If so, then this book is for you!
