The purpose of Sex Happens: The Gay Man's Guide to Creative Intimacy is to take gay men and/or gay couples on a journey to experience love, intimacy and peace of mind.  Creative intimacy is ultimately the exploration and the expression of emotional needs and sexual desires in the context of current authentic experience and feelings.  This is achieved first and foremost through honest introspection and open dialogue with one's partner.  Some may find their experiences validated by the perspective Dr. Leight puts forward.  Others may find themselves seriously challenged and even angry or defensive reading some of the material in this book.  The intention is to stimulate thinking, challenge beliefs, and give permission to change thinking and beliefs within the context of the unique and respected perspective the reader brings to the material presented.  Dr. Leight encourages men to make choices and changes based upon what feels right and what works for each unique relationship.
