These tapes are are advertised regularly in the New York Times and many other publications.

Dr. Scantling's latest book, is "Extraordinary Sex Now" (Doubleday). Great sex is not about physical prowess; it's about intimacy, and about understanding those ineffable forces that bring people together in the first place. Often, it's a search for completion -- our hope that a partner will provide us with that "missing piece" -- that results in attraction. By understanding how to capitalize on our own unique style and how to complete ourselves, rather than struggling in vain to change our partner, we can learn how to deepen and achieve "Extraordinary Sex Now."
