“This is a e book that interestingly sufficient has been a long term in the making due to the fact, you realize, being a man and understanding that no matter how dedicated I may additionally want to be, there’s simply troubles that I address and I recognise that different guys cope with,” DeVon shared. “So final fall after the Commandments got here out … I instructed [Maria Shriver during an interview] off the cuff about this concept with the ebook … and he or she’s like ‘You’ve got to write down that now!’ And I became like ‘No, no, I can’t write every other book — I simply wrote a e-book!’ But due to the fact there’s a lot happening in the global about men, I idea it became time to write it.”

“In the e book, I communicate approximately lust operates like an untrained dog in guys,” he defined. “And love is the grasp. So, as guys, so one can get control and feature fulfillment we must grasp our lust because when we see such a lot of challenges that are occurring within the international [Times Up, the Me Too movement], I believe it’s because men have given themselves over to lust.

But, are we able to act like one? Yes, we will. And so when I’m speakme approximately this I’m now not pointing the finger, I’m pronouncing me too. When I got married and all of a surprising I had these lustful mind I’m like ‘Wait a minute, I’m devoted, what’s going on right here?’ So I wanted to put in writing this e-book about the reality, that we all cope with it, but we don’t must give ourselves over to it.”
So why do men cheat? According to DeVon it’s all approximately “appetite.”
“There’s a chapter inside the book that I call ‘The One You Feed’ so if you feed the dog, otherwise you feed the grasp, whoever you feed goes to develop, and in our dating life most of the time guys are taught to feed the canine. ‘Eat anything you want.’ So the dog is selfish,” DeVon shared. “It handiest wishes what it wants whilst it desires it. The master love is selfless — it’s all about the extra correct. But in dating, what will we do? Men are taught get as a good deal as you can even as you could get it and then all of a surprising when you get married, in case you haven’t gone thru a process to twist your urge for food, while you get married, you still have that hunger.”
