Staying In Love

The Top Secrets of Great Relationships



How to keep your relationship alive and interesting by an relationships expert.

How to keep your relationship alive and interesting.

Sex is not something people discuss much in New Zealand. We don't often hear conversations about what couples are doing to keep their relationship strong and alive. We often hear complaints about partners' inadequacies or announcements of relationships ending. There is no one right way to build a healthy, happy sexual relationship. It's a living ongoing process that takes place through many interactions and conversations over time as you learn to know each other and how to be together.

This book by a clincial psychologist is designed as a manual to guide you through a process. Each of the brief chapters will not take long to read. They're designed as conversation starters to provide information about the many aspects of building a lasting, happy sexual relationship. At the end of each chapter are some discussion points and a case study to illustrate the issue under consideration.

About the author

Robyn Salisbury

Robyn Salisbury, author of Staying In Love: Top Secrets of Great Relationships, also writes a regular relationship Q & A feature for the Sunday Star Times under the name of Mrs Salisbury. She received a lot of media attention when she published a paper on the prevalence and dangers of sexual addiction. A clinical psychologist and sex specialist, she has a private practice in Palmerston North and a website (www.sextherapy.co.nz).
Staying In Love removes the taboo surrounding sexual relationships, providing a manual which promotes talking about sexual issues, using conversation-starters and case studies as a guide. Writing for the ASSECT Newsletter, Dr Madeleine M Castellanos, a New York-based sex therapist, called Staying In Love ‘a unique book’ with ‘brilliant insights’. After discussing its structure and content in detail, she concluded that it could be used with couples and individuals ‘of any sexual orientation’, and finished: ‘I would highly recommend this book to be given as bibliotherapy to couples and individuals and to a general audience overall.’
