mjr bio headshotBeginning in September of 2011 Michael began a year-long personal transformation that included a diagnosis of prostate cancer, radical prostatectomy, follow up intensive radiation treatments and full blown impotence.

He considers his resulting impotence to be one of the biggest blessings in his life. It is because of his impotence that he and his partner discovered an entirely new approach to experiencing levels of emotional and physical intimacy that far exceeds anything either experienced prior to when things were working "correctly."

It is his personal mission in life to serve other couples who struggle with emotional and physical intimacy due to ED, impotence or simply because they have lost their "spark." He uses his communications skills across the globe to share what he has learned.

Prior to this phase of his life, Michael was a highly regarded international speaker and author about technology. His media experience includes keynotes, radio and TV interviews, videos, articles for national publications and voiceovers.
Beyond Sex: Becoming Emotionally Intimate with Your Partner
You thought that it would never happen to your relationship. You two shared an intense passion for one another, and could barely keep your hands to yourself.

The years passed, and so did the times that were once spent fogging up windows and engaging in multiple sweat sessions.

You're having sex less often that you ever imagined, whether the cause is exhaustion from both you and your partner's demanding jobs, your children, or if your man suffers from ED.

You're feeling less connected to your partner than ever.

Is there another way?

Michael Russer was diagnosed with prostate cancer and unfortunately, from the cancer and the treatment, he was left completely impotent.

Through this, however, Russer found the number one reason that couples drift. It's not necessarily just due to lack of desire, but also the result of a lack of emotional intimacy.

Russer, author and motivational speaker, shares how becoming more emotionally intimate with your partner will help grow your relationship.
