Book Review: Love in the Time of Corona: Advice from a Sex Therapist for Couples in Quarantine

“Love in the times of Corona” probably resonates with everyone on this globe who is in such a situation. The pandemic has not only made us introspect on our lifestyle, and what led us to this, but also our attitude to life and things that matter the most.

With many services and usual ways of enjoyment blocked, there is bound to be a feeling of uneasiness, dullness, and separation. This is exactly where Dr. Diana Wiley steps in with her book.

Simply put, this book tells you how to enjoy a more sensual and sexual connection with your partner, relieve stress, and strengthen your relationship, and have more fun!

While this is something that should be a part of a healthy relationship where partners are sexually inclined, they say that extraordinary times call for extraordinary measures!

Dr. Diana highlights the ever-increasing importance of communication, amidst a pandemic, about your sexual desires and needs. In a very lucid way, she highlights simple exercises to establish deep and intimate connections, and ace everything - from talking to a date night!

She also illustrates how we can use physical distancing to our advantage for creating a deeper emotional relationship, and a more exciting physical relationship, with our partner. The book also contains an excellent curated list of recommended resources for pursuing topics in-depth as well as lists of possible activities between couples to help stimulate discussion between them. 

The point is to make emotional and physical connect fun. In times like these, all of us can have moments of joy by evoking the playful side of our lives. That is exactly what Dr. Diana leads you to!

Buy this book, and have sex, pandemic style!
