Some couples wonder if they have the mettle for a committed relationship, or the momentum for long-distance love, or the reflexes for fighting crime. Unsure couples waste years looking for answers in each other's eyes, or in the offices of behavioral therapists. And yet each night their sleeping bodies reveal more than any doctor or private detective could ever discover.

With The Secret Language of Sleep: A Couple's Guide to the Thirty-Nine Positions, a couple unlocks the true meaning that lies within their chosen pose. All thirty-nine poses (including Classic Spoons, the Tobogganer, and Softserve Swirl) come with easy-to-identify illustrations along with detailed descriptions, case studies, and training tips. Handy icons indicate which positions are the most therapeutic for snorers, outdoorsmen, or couples who work on their feet.

Praise for The Secret Language of Sleep:

“Hugely entertaining and deadpan smart, Evany Thomas’s The Secret Language of Sleep details 39 positions for dormant lovers, from Melting Spoons (that’s Classic Spooning for codependents) to Starfish and Conch ('the preferred position for couples who fight well together') and Sixth Posture of the Perfumed Forest (one hand on stomach, opposite elbow across eyes). Amelia Bauer's line drawings, evocative of prim 1950s sex guides, give this tiny volume its tart appeal.”
Oprah Magazine

“For mates completely stuck in their Pinching Koala and Tree ways (lots of knee squeezing) or who are avowed Ticket Punchers (plenty of hot toe-on-toe action), Thomas purports to explain what each snuggle means using a mixture of research ranging from hard science to soft tarot, with a sprinkling of survival guides, yoga and ventriloquism thrown in for good measure.”
New York Post

“Injected with just the right dose of McSweeney-ian humor, this book is downright precious for those of you (un)fortunate enough to be in a relationship, or even those of you who are living single.” And: “If you’re just looking for a new position or some quirky insight into the one you and your partner contentedly form, Thomas’ book will delight at first glance. But upon closer inspection, The Secret Language of Sleep is oddly and deeply romantic.”
