The Alchemy of Love and Lust

Is falling in love or lust just a matter of chemistry? We may think emotions rule our sex lives, but our hormones largely determine our physical attractions, drives, and behaviors. By understanding these hidden hormonal agendas, we can influence them in return and enjoy happier, more fulfilling lives and relationships, while fully appreciating the characteristic differences between the sexes.

Dr. Theresa Crenshaw, a renowned sex therapist, explains how body chemicals dictate our sexual peaks and cycles from adolescence to old age. The result of three decades of research that incorporates the most up-to-date findings, including the latest information on DHEA's potential health benefits, The Alchemy of Love and Lust is an eye-opening tour of key hormones and their link to moods, desires, and feelings in both men and women. Dr. Crenshaw shows how:

A specific hormone may keep men from making commitments 

Menopause can actually be prevented -- while sexual pleasure is increased 

Sex hormones improve the quality of life and, in many cases, our longevity
