Excellent

Excellent book for anyone who has known there's something deeper possible in intimate relationship, but have never been able to articulate what that is, or known how to obtain it. This book will tell you how to start moving beyond ordinary relating and into a much deeper, more fulfilling and nourishing intimate connection.
The narration is also excellent.

Insightful and thought provoking

I was surprised by the depth of explanation within the feminine and masculine energy and the helpful understanding of each. This thought provoking play on masculinity and femininity ultimately lends to the same goal and that is fully surrendering to love itself. This was a great read and very helpful for my personal relationships, intimate and not.

This is an important book.

This book is very important for anyone who wants to have fulfilling relationships romantic and platonic. It gave me greater clarity even with my coworkers. Once you understand people's sexual essences and what that entails it's easier to speak to them in a way that is productive. And once you understand if they're 1st, 2nd or 3rd, you know if they're on the same level as you, or if it's better if you just minimised your time with them, or cut them of completely. Or maybe you need to learn from them. It's really great stuff.

Exquisitely written!

One of the best books on masculine and feminine polarities. David Deida is an artist and his writing and descriptions of the dance the masculine and feminine do energetically On a day-to-day moment to moment basis is absolutely divine. Thank you

Should be mandatory in high school

Great wisdom that if lived would eliminate most divorces, as love and understanding would conquer most. Ignorance as to the ways of the opposite sex is not bliss. A must read to get the most out of your intimate relationships.

What's going on here?

This book has completely lost me. I don't understand what it is aiming at. It provides no solutions and no answers. The philosophy and ideas are pretty outdated and basic. It is evident that Intimate communion relies on a decision to work on the partnership. Initially you find compatibility, if it exists then you move on to building and working toward a common goal, while exchanging gifts and talents with each other. It becomes a journey of devotion that requires continually renewed care and attention. It's a choice, a choice that must remain stronger than the impulses of the mind and body. We need to start educating people about this in order to have more long-lasting relationships; Because through these relationships, we can accomplish so much more good than we could do on our own. Maximize love, minimize hurt.

Wonderful illumination to our true essence

Deida is a brilliant interpreter of how our natural sexual essence (masculine or feminine) can be a gift to our partner and ourselves. Specific examples and metaphors helped me better understand years of failing and never achieving what I always wanted in relationship and in my life.
