Author, speaker and relationship coach Shela Dean will show you how.
What? Foreplay's not about sex? Then what is it about — cooking?
No, although cooking can be excellent foreplay.
Foreplay is also about intimacy — emotional intimacy between yourself and your partner. That kind of foreplay is what leads to a great marriage or any great romantic relationship — including truly awesome, passionate, my-eyes-are-rolling-back-in-my-head sex.
Maybe you’ve read a self-help book — one of those “create intimacy in your marriage” paperbacks. Or watched a video, attended a talk, seen a therapist. There’s no shortage of advice out there. But most of it is so vague that it’s meaningless. And it misses the fundamental point: Intimacy is the product of deep, emotional, mutual understandings that are not simple to achieve.
Look at it this way: You and your partner need to trust and respect each other. And trust and respect are very personal things, based on your own unique and specific idea of how people should behave towards each other. Your sense of right and wrong has been under development for however many decades you’ve been alive.
But here’s the first crazy thing: You and your lover may not have the same idea of what trust and respect mean!
Now here’s the other crazy thing: It’s fine if you don’t — so long as you understand each other.
And this, dear reader, is where Frequent Foreplay Miles comes in.
Frequent Foreplay Miles: Your Ticket to Total Intimacy is a sex book with a twist — it’s not about how to have sex. It’s how to want to have sex with your lover — how to reach the level of intimacy that makes amazing sex a frequent and natural part of your relationship.
Don’t let anyone fool you: WOW! sex comes from a WOW! relationship. And a WOW! relationship is one where there’s great emotional foreplay. It’s not easy to get there. But whoa, Nellie — is it worth it!
Frequent Foreplay Miles is a clever scoring system for you and your lover that will help you feel loved, cherished, nurtured, supported, understood — all the prerequisites for astounding sex. Yes, it’s a scoring system, okay? Grow up — we all keep score. Everyone knows whether they’re riding high or in the doghouse and where their significant other is. But here’s the really really important difference:
Frequent Foreplay Miles facilitates emotional intimacy. Suddenly every discussion is fun and sexy — no matter what you’re talking about. With the techniques you’ll learn in Frequent Foreplay Miles, you’ll always be coming closer together — and you know where that leads.

"I wanted to say thank you! You absolutely saved my marriage which, after 25 years, was on the brink of divorce. About 2 months after I read your book and followed your advice, my husband noticed the change in me. We were no longer fighting and I had stopped sniping at him. I shared your book with him. He read it in one sitting and couldn't put it down. That's when the real process of fixing our marriage began. We are talking more than we have in 10 years, are in love again, and the fireworks have been re-ignited! Thank you, Shela, for making the emotional love in our life stronger and for making the physical love happen again."
