Marnia Robinson is the author of Cupid’s Poisoned Arrow: From Habit to Harmony in Sexual Relationships.
Cupid’s Poisoned Arrow is one of the most impactful books I’ve ever read on sex and long-term relationships.
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.
On today’s episode of Humans in Love, Marnia and longtime friend ‘Anya’ discuss the science of orgasm, how to strengthen our bond with our partner, the importance of affection in long-term relationships, shifting our view of sex, and much more.
I hope you enjoy.
