Anatomy of Desire

Five Secrets to Create Connection and Cultivate Passion

Combining over fifteen years of clinical experience with her groundbreaking research into the science of flow, Dr. Emily Jamea’s ANATOMY OF DESIRE delivers a fresh perspective on the untapped potential of our sex lives, intimate partner connections, and personal wellbeing.

The experience of effortlessness, total absorption, and loss of space and time are feelings that everyone wants to enjoy while making love. However, regardless of everyone’s desire for better sex, passion and sexual satisfaction tend to diminish in longer-term relationships. This is a problem because studies consistently show that sexual satisfaction is key to relationship satisfaction.

Great sex is something we all deserve.

As a seasoned sex and relationship therapist, Dr. Emily Jamea has developed a unique approach for boosting sexual desire and pleasure. Anatomy of Desire identifies five secrets―sensuality, curiosity, adaptability, vulnerability, and attunement―that help her clients transform sex from sub-par to extraordinary.

Woven through each secret is the science of “flow state.” Drawing from her first-of-its-kind published research, Dr. Emily teaches readers how to apply the science of flow to get the sex they want despite the challenges of today’s modern world. Clients, workshop participants, and hundreds of thousands of social media followers have already benefited from her approach.

Dr. Emily Jamea’s debut book, Anatomy of Desire: Five Secrets to Create Connection and Cultivate Passion makes her novel approach available to everyone.
