Compiled by renowned sex therapist and author Wendy Maltz, Passionate Hearts is a remarkable anthology of intimate, emotionally explicit, yet accessible poetry, representing new voices as well as the most revered contemporary poets.

Review:

Renowned sex therapist and author, Wendy Maltz assembled this collection of poetry, hoping to offer inspiration to couples who like it hot, but also heartfelt. This is an excellently edited selection--void of flowery nonsense or male-domination fantasies disguised in pretty-clothed words. We are given visions and vignettes as satiating and stirring as the act itself. For parents of young children there's even a chapter devoted to the urgency of get-it-while-you-can, as well as the deepening sexuality that comes with parenthood. "Sex has a way of softening limbs, / oiling joints and melding hearts ...," writes poet Wendy Lee. And so does this book.

From the Back Cover:

In her search for positive, healthy sexual images to help her in educating couples, renowned therapist and author Wendy Maltz sought out "poems that inspire and celebrate healthy sexual intimacy; poems in which heart connection was at the core of the sexual experience". The result is a remarkable anthology of intimate, sensually explicit poems, representing new voices as well as more revered contemporary poets.
