In LOVE CYCLES, Dr. Winnifred Cutler tells how and why our love lives wax and wane with biological regularity. She claims that by understanding these "love cycles", we can take control of the hormonal rhythms to enhance sensuality, inhibit the aging process, ward off PMS, increase the probability of a successful pregnancy, and encourage quality of life. Her substantial research is heavily cited and illustrated clearly with graphs and supporting references.
Readers will discover: why monogamy and restraint make biologic sense, how hormones are affected by our sexual behavior, and how both men and women can take control of their fertility. Dr. Cutler presents her controversial discoveries in the fields of human sexual behavior, reproductive physiology, and cosmic influences of reproduction. LOVE CYCLES also explains her groundbreaking 1986 discovery of human pheromones in scientific detail. This remarkable book is a unique blend of science, philosophy, and common sense.
This is a serious scientific work with profound practical application. In fact, LOVE CYCLES is very much about the scientific process -- how a scientist follows a hunch, designs a study, and experiences the triumph of discovery. Winnifred Cutler's analysis of her data is visionary and inspiring.

"Intimate relations between men and women are complex and constantly shifting. Love cycles are subject to internal physiological forces and are inevitably connected to cosmic forces beyond the awareness or control of the individual.
LOVE CYCLES:THE SCIENCE OF INTIMACY is about human experience. As a scientist, I have spent twenty-two years investigating the nature of the reproductive system of women and the men who love them. These studies have focused on the biology, psychology, and physiology underlying the outward show of love.
Those who understand love cycles have a renewed opportunity to enhance their intimate relationship. By understanding the nature of the science of intimacy, women and men are better able to get more of what we all want - a more loving and loved existence. Ultimately the science of intimacy points to the poetry and magic of human experience."About the Author:
