Banyen's Description: 

Zing! Cupid’s arrow skewers a primitive part of the brain. Obediently, we fall in love amid showers of passionate fireworks, bond for a time… and then often get fed up with each other and grow irritable or numb. Perhaps we try to remodel our mate, seek solace online, or pursue a new love interest. Ancient sages recognized this biological snare and hinted at a way to dodge it: use lovemaking to balance one another and harmony arises naturally.

Cupid’s Poisoned Arrow combines revealing personal experience, an easy-to-understand discussion about the science of making love, and information from sacred texts on sexuality. Focusing on the ancient territory of “bonding-based” lovemaking, it offers a refreshing approach to sexuality and spirituality for men and women interested in redefining and strengthening their intimate relationships.

Marnia Robinson discusses the dubious roots of our current focus on orgasm and highlights a more expanded model for understanding our sexuality. She describes the biological mechanism behind passion, the “lows” that often follow sexual satiation, and even why the human brain is vulnerable to compulsive sexual behaviours and other addictions. In doing so, she reveals how we can outsmart Mother Nature with bonding-based lovemaking to restore balance and promote well-being and authentic monogamy.

With an entertaining blend of personal experiences, the latest neuroscience, and forgotten insights from around the globe, Cupid’s Poisoned Arrow confronts current assumptions about sex and love and offers a refreshing, practical approach to sexuality, including a three-week program of exercises for couples wishing to experiment with bonding-based lovemaking. This book is for anyone questioning why his or her intimate relationship has become fragile—or has failed—and willing to try an approach that’s so ancient, it’s new.
