Putting desires into perspective and defining values about women, men and intimacy are a few of the contemporary concerns of passion. The battle of the sexes is neither a debate on who wins or loses power nor does it reduce lust to immoral desires. It is about people with full responsibility to utilize the power of pleasure, passion of power, and the pleasure of power. In the worst scenarios of losing one’s faith or belittling the self, it is exhilarating to read about the struggle of the powerful. They too have suffered. This book seeks to empower those who have been victimized by their own decisions and by people who have not treated them well.

Quick peak at some issues:

Concern No. 1: PREGNANCY. When partners are engaged in premarital sex but fear getting pregnant, they immediately think of different styles to avoid it. Some thought that urinating after intercourse works while others refer to cervical mucus that women sometimes confuse for other substances like mid-cycle secretions. Ovulation most likely occurs about 24 hours after the last day of this abundant, slippery discharge considering that a woman should assume that ovulation could occur anytime two days before and two days after her mucus peak.

Concern #2: IMPOTENCY. Consider Oligospermia (low sperm count) where 3 major treatments may improve condition: (1) fertility drugs (2) artificial insemination and (3) assisted reproductive technologies.

Concern # 3: UNRESOLVED CURIOUSITY. Read the book.
