*There are countless books on men and relationships that analyze and interpret men’s feelings about intimacy from a clinical or therapeutic approach.
However, there are very few books that actually highlight men’s points of view on this topic in an uncut, complete, raw and emotional way. Author, Therez Fleetwood, explores the complexities of relationships through the minds of men who give real, no holds barred answers to the questions that women want to ask.
There are many women who feel disconnected from their partner and desire to create a deeper bond. This book is for those who are seeking to understand why men do the things they do when it comes to intimacy-related acts.
Oftentimes, women spend countless hours asking other women for advice on their relationships when they should be going directly to the source. “Men and Intimacy, Real Talk. Real Answers” is the source. What you will discover is what men really think about intimacy, women, relationships, sex, love, cheating, and pornography.
As ‘Gordon’ the Behavioral Therapist stated in “Men’s Last Words,” “I think the book project is necessary. These issues are real. They are not discussed, but they are prevalent and I think anything that provides a porthole, particularly for men of color, to express themselves, is freeing in and of itself. I find that other races have a platform to express themselves whereas men of color do not and the family nucleus is suffering as a result thereof.”
Over fifty men, between the ages of thirty and sixty, share their voices and their viewpoints to offer us untapped information in which most of them have never openly revealed before. The men interviewed range in professions from actors to ministers, to newscaster and ex-marines, and almost any profession in between. The questions asked in this book are probing and the answers are direct. Whether you are married or single, female or male, this book will open up a pathway to conversation and exploration.
In “Men and Intimacy, Real Talk. Real Answers,” readers will learn: Do men really want intimacy? What do men find sexy in a woman? Do men get bored with sex? Why do men cheat? What are the most important things to men in a relationship? What types of women are men really looking for? … and much more!
“This book was not written to point fingers or blame men in any way,” Fleetwood comments. “It was written to allow men to be fully self-expressed. It will also help men find their voice of self-expression as they read and connect with the different answers provided by this diverse group whose statements may resemble their own. My hope with “Men and Intimacy, Real Talk, Real Answers” is that couples use these questions as a guide to help discover intimacy within each other through honest conversations and begin their journeys of creating intimacy together.”
