Navigating the complexities of relationships throughout your life can be difficult; whether it be intimate relationships, friendships, or even the relationship you have with yourself. In Radical Intimacy, the author offers a practical methodology for sustaining relationships and nurturing them in the best way possible. Kors suggests nine different opportunities for deepening a relationship, and encourages readers to accept both the emotional and physical aspects of relating to others. While the advice in this book can definitely assist with deepening relationships in the bedroom, it is also just as important to nurture relationships outside of it as well.
The author describes many instances and life experiences as a possibility for connection with others; and encourages readers to strive towards developing “intimacy” with the entire world. She reworks the meaning of “intimacy” to not only refer to sex, but also emotional and energetic connections with others. As demonstrated by the title of this book, the guidance and advice present in this book suggests making bigger changes to the way people think about and act in relationships. While making small steps towards a goal can still help; it can be necessary to prepare oneself for radical changes to yield better results in a relationship.
