Since Darwin's day, we've been told that sexual monogamy comes naturally to our species. Mainstream science - as well as religious and cultural institutions - has maintained that men and women evolved in families in which a man's possessions and protection were exchanged for a woman's fertility and fidelity. But this narrative is collapsing....

It is now 100 years since drugs were first banned in the United States. On the eve of this centenary, journalist Johann Hari set off on an epic three-year, 30,000-mile journey into the war on drugs. What he found is that more and more people all over the world have begun to recognize three startling truths: Drugs are not what we think they are. Addiction is not what we think it is. And the drug war has very different motives to the ones we have seen on our TV screens for so long.

...it's an epic listen and kinda fun.
The author explores a number of factors around abuse and consent, briefly touched on Stockholm Syndrome and plays around with role dynamics.

Having said this, don't expect anything other than a mildly erotic, fairly safe fantasy into control and dominance. This is NOT an academic exploration into what many may feel is a BDSM relationship.

This is a valuable Chapter from the lengthy "More Than Two" and although worthy in its own right, you may find that it is of more value when taken within the context of the full book.

What if you could solve problems related to stress, weight loss, or pain without expensive medication, false theories about programs and diets, and long, exhausting exercises and plans? There is such a way. There is an effective method that has been tested and proven over and over again. When applied the right way, hypnotherapy can help.

This presents a broad overview of the application of hypnotherapy but does not go into any great detail about action or methodology.
a very good place to start if you know absolutely nothing about, or need clarity concerning hypnotherapy.

Success with women is 80% confidence. If you don't have confidence and high self esteem, then you are never going to attract the woman or women of your dreams. Use this powerful hypnosis to reprogram your subconscious mind and remove all self doubt....

Such titles worry me. The implicit abuse potential associated with the term "seduction" equally so.

Thankfully this is more of a relaxation hypnosis than anything else.

We all now need to engage with (not necessarily consume) pornography.
Failure to do so will ensure implicit, passive consent for our children to be educated about sex and relationships by PornHub, RedTube etc.
This book should act as a heads up (and no, 'heads up' is not another kinky sexual fetish).

At last the CD audio programme is now available as a download. Do you want to lose weight? Have you tried diets and failed? Do you want a completely new approach? A gastric band is a radical, surgical operation that reduces the available space in the stomach.
