About the Author

Vanessa Marin is a licensed psychotherapist specializing in sex therapy. She has bachelor's degrees in human sexuality and sociology from Brown University and a master's degree in counseling psychology. She has written for The New York Times, Allure, and Lifehacker, and has been featured many times in major publications like Oprah Daily, Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, and Real Simple.

Xander Marin is a regular dude who left a cushy career in tech once he realized it was more fun to talk about sex with his wife all day. He's here to show you that you don't need a graduate degree or a license to have extraordinary communication skills--you just need to have an open mind and willingness!


"If there is one thing I know from my years as a sex therapist it's that talking about sex may be one of the most difficult hurdles couples face when they want to improve their sex lives. Sex Talks shows you how to make those conversations easier, and perhaps even fun."--Dr. Bat Sheva Marcus, author of Sex Points
"Finally, here's a book that recognizes that most sex issues are a result of the lack of communication. Based on the latest research, Sex Talks helps us overcome the myths that drag us down. Buy this book! Have these essential conversations!" --John Gottman, New York Times bestselling author of The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work
"This book redefines what it means to have great sex. With her signature frankness and relatability, Vanessa Marin reveals the secrets to a fulfilling love life. You'll never think about intimacy and desire the same way again." --Logan Ury, author of How to Not Die Alone: The Surprising Science That Will Help You Find Love
"In this approachable debut, sex therapist Vanessa Marin and husband Xander Marin propose that better communication makes for better sex...Periodic asides from Xander complement Marin's therapist's perspective with 'regular dude' commentary on the same issues, suggesting, for example, low-pressure ways to initiate intimidating conversations. Compassionate and witty, Marin makes what many find a challenging discussion manageable, even for readers with little idea of where to start. Anyone looking to improve their communication with a partner will find valuable takeaways."
