“Obviously we are very very different, but what are those differences? How can we articulate the ones we tend to misunderstand the most, and with that better understanding we can begin to appreciate our differences and understand each other better to provide the support our partners need.” (8:32)

“We see this hurried life that we are in today, always too busy, and we are not enjoying the fruits of a good marriage or a good relationship, which is great sex!” (12:37)

“The dynamic is for women to understand how to communicate messages to a man that pump up his testosterone in a world that is pushing it down, and for women, men need to know how to support women, particularly at certain times of the month, to increase their estrogen.” (25:22)

“We have to come back to authenticity, and it is very hard to do unless we have a more sophisticated understanding of how we keep bumping into our partners because we don't understand the differences between men and women in a positive way.” (44:20)
