About this title


The Great American Sex Diet will take you on a thrilling twenty-eight-day journey to new heights of intimacy, sensuality, and excitement!

Bestselling author Laura Corn has helped millions of couples revitalize their relationships with her world-famous recipe: Anticipation + Variety = Great Sex. Now, in The Great American Sex Diet, Laura adds a powerful new ingredient based on a discovery that grew out of a personal crisis in her life. Its effect was truly miraculous. In fact, it saved her relationship. But would it work for others?

To find out, Laura invited thirty-eight couples to test her new recipe. They came from all across America and all walks of life -- twentysomethings to sixtysomethings, with children and without. Some were perfectly happy and looking for a way to spice things up, some yearned for the passion they once felt for one another, others were stressed out or had little or no desire for sex, and a few were even on the verge of breaking up. Most confessed that sex was now infrequent and predictable, but they all had this in common: They wanted to make things better.

For twenty-eight amazing, eye-opening days, they explored the sealed pages in this book and followed Laura's secret recipes. They seduced each other. They surprised each other. They courted each other. And the sex they had was more incredible, wonderful, and breathtaking than they'd had in years. The results were extraordinary. All the successful couples had proven the truth behind Laura Corn's newest insight. Men and women felt better, they listened more, they treated each other with tenderness and respect. In short, they fell in love all over again.

You'll be inspired by their tales of transformation. And you'll see the results with your own eyes because each intimate story is accompanied by revealing before-and-after portraits that capture the remarkable changes brought on by the diet.

The Great American Sex Diet can work the same magic in your relationship. You get all the tools used by Laura's research team:

  • Two Secret Spice Menus: One For Her Eyes Only and one For His Eyes Only. Each fold-out menu contains more than seventy erotic techniques and ideas, as well as suggestions for ways to combine them into literally thousands of seductions. And because your partner never gets to see your version of the Spice Menu, every sexy treat comes as delicious surprise!
  • Tear-Out Spice Calendars: Designed to create burning sense of anticipation in both of you. You'll be amazed at the sheer erotic rush that comes from knowing you are going to be seduced at a certain date and time! More important, the calendars make it possible to keep your commitment to intimacy, even in the middle of your busy life.
  • Secret Envelopes: Contain Laura's greatest hits, sex diet secrets, anticipation teasers, and extra spices so tantalizing they're sealed in special envelopes!

If you're ready to reclaim love, intimacy, confidence, and sexuality -- if you're willing to commit twenty-eight days to the pursuit of renewed passionthen this book is for you.

Your spicy new life can start tonight!


Forget about shedding unwanted pounds--this tantalizing diet is all about shedding inhibitions (and a few key clothing items), not fat. Intimacy enthusiast Laura Corn, bestselling author of 101 Nights of Grrreat Sex, cooks up a 28-day plan for committed couples who hunger for the fiery "honeymoon phase" of their relationship. To them, she pleads that sex should become a staple--not an extra--right along with "a good balance of water, protein, and carbohydrates." The trick is to make this precious staple a spicy one, by following Corn's stock recipe: "Anticipation + Variety = Great SEX!" Her beautifully compiled ode to rekindling passion helps readers unleash their inner chef.

A victim of low sex drive herself, Corn speaks with conviction and empathy about the perils of lust in long-term relationships. Countering such energy-sappers as work, kids, and boredom requires planning--and lots of it. Corn makes the task simple by offering two tear-out menus (His Only and Hers Only) that dish up a feast of fresh ideas. Participants each select 14 "dishes" from their private list of playful, sexy scenarios, then write each provocative title on a whimsical "Spice Calendar." They're also encouraged to consult additional sealed pages for "Anticipation Teasers," and "Extra Spice Recipes."

Will it work? Just check out the 150 pages dedicated to satisfied dieters. Here, before and after photos (taken by Pulitzer nominee Rick Dahms) speak volumes about Corn's 38 test couples. Their sample calendars, detailed encounters, and praise for the experience abound. Just as the best meals are the ones you plan, prep, and stretch your imagination for, so too, it seems, are the yummiest romantic encounters. Bon appétit! --Liane Thomas

U.S. Shipping:
We ship our books according to media rate through the US Postal Services. This is the cheapest way for us to ship you your books. We will contact you if shipping will cost more than the listed price. Please note that heavier and larger-sized books will cost more to ship as the general shipping cost is used for average-weight/sized books. If you would like your book insured, specifically packed or delivered faster it will cost more and you will need to contact us.

All our packages are wrapped in foam, bubble wrap, peanuts or a combination thereof.

International Shipping:
As a standard for shipping, we ship all our books in a Global Priority Flat Rate mailer envelope. This costs just a couple bucks more than ground and will get there in 4 to 10 business days instead of the one to two months it would for Ground. Priority in a box costs a bit more (about 17.50,) but has that added bit of protection. We're more than happy to ship Ground for $9.00 or Express for $30.00. Let us know what you prefer if the option isn't listed.
