The Intimacy Solution investigates the connection between sex and intimacy at all stages of life through patient stories and research and explores how individual sexuality takes shape and changes over the course of the various ages and phases of life.

What exactly is sexuality and how does it impact our lives? In her enthralling book The Intimacy Solution, Dr. Erika Schwartz presents an in-depth look at how our individual sexual identities are shaped, and how the “norm” differs vastly from what social stereotypes and the media would have us believe. 

In fact, Dr. Erika confirms without a doubt—there is no normThe Intimacy Solution walks us through the “seasons” of our continuous sexual development, helping readers view sexuality through the lenses of biology, learned behaviors, personal truth, and culture. Moving beyond Masters and Johnson’s unilateral approach to sexuality, Dr. Erika takes a broad leap forward to explain and shine a light on the impact of the myriad factors such as our delicate hormone balance, life experiences and trauma, and societal expectations as they come together to affect our personal belief systems in what sex and intimacy are at various points in our lives. In The Intimacy Solution, Dr. Erika uncovers the mystery behind the driving forces of sexuality and their impact at every stage in our lives.
  • how pairing sexuality with intimacy enhances emotional health and overall happiness
  • the direct and indelible interaction between hormones, sex and intimacy
  • how to overcome the loneliness, isolation, and shame associated with sexual issues, emphasizing that such problems are never unusual
  • the many myths about sexuality and how they affect our beliefs and behaviors…and much more.

Sexuality is one of the most complicated and least understood aspects of our lives. Drawing on the personal experience of thousands of patients as well as medical expertise, research, and insightful observation, Dr. Erika helps us break down the barriers keeping us from our personal growth, truth, and identity, as well as the intimacy and passionate abandon associated with the profoundly defining force of human sexuality and the connection to intimacy and love.
