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." "

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.

Reviews

[This book] seriously challenges conventional wisdom about human sexual interactions. It is as antithetical to modern cultural beliefs about sexual behavior as Galileo s treatise was to astronomy. In Galileo s time the earth (like the orgasm) was thought to be the incontestable center of the universe. Marnia Robinson s hypothesis might result in much needed navigational improvements for modern family relationships. A.J. Reid Finlayson, MD, Division of Addiction Medicine, Department of Psychiatry, Vanderbilt University School of Medicine Marnia Robinson brings neuroscience into the bedroom, revealing how biology creates projection and separation. She provides a solution that will not only pleasantly surprise you, but will profoundly change your life. This is a must-read for anyone wanting to know love. Kali Wendorf, founder of Australia s "Kindred" magazine and contributing editor of the anthology "Belonging " I can honestly say that I have never read a more accessible and well laid out description of the brain s reward circuitry. Combine that with the experiential, practical, and spiritual dimensions of "Cupid s Poisoned Arrow," and it is virtually impossible to walk away from it without the feeling that Marnia Robinson really is on to something significant in the field of human relationships and sexual behavior. Russell Razzaque, MD, psychiatrist, London, England "Cupid s Poisoned Arrow" is a skillful blend of understandable science, informative personal reports and light-hearted humor, which make for enjoyable, thought-provoking reading. Between its chapters, curious readers will also find intriguing essays about various traditions (Taoism, Christianity, Buddhism, cortezia, karezza, etc.). These reveal little known, and often remarkable, clues about the hidden potential that lies in our sexual relationships. "HopeDance" In "Cupid's Poisoned Arrow: From Habit to Harmony in Sexual Relationships," author Marnia Robinson explains how neuroscience can help us understand and change our relationships. Robinson challenges often-held assumptions about the role of sexuality in an accessible way, including personal experiences, science, and insights from around the world. "MiddlesexMD" " Cupid s Poisoned Arrow "blends personal experiences with the latest neuroscience and various cultural insights to build a survey of popular notions about human sexual interactions and their realities, blending history with cultural and social observation.
