For some couples, The Lovers' Guide video series may be a good first step to discovering the secret spark that reignites passion. The original video series was re-released this month in two box sets, each containing five DVDs:
The Original Collection offers fundamental information on maintaining a satisfying sex life in "The Original Lovers' Guide" (1991), "Making Sex Even Better" (1992), "Better Orgasms for Women" (1993), "Better Orgasms for Men" (1993), and "The Essential Lovers' Guide" (1995).
The Essential Collection presents slightly more current and advanced material in "Secrets of Sensational Sex" (1999), "What Women Really Want" (2002), "Sex Play" (2004), "Sexual Positions" (2003), and "Satisfaction Guaranteed" (2005).
Like the sex scenes, the advice is simple, straightforward and relatively tame. The series is ideal for couples who are new to sex, those whose bedroom activities could be described as traditional, or older couples trying to rekindle their passion. I would even go so far as to say that parents could give this series to their teenagers as a healthy and realistic alternative to the skewed version of sex they get through Internet porn.
In the end, even if the series doesn't answer every question, at the very least it will open up lines of communication about sex, and provide couples with plenty of things to test out in the bedroom.
