Healing Sex: A Mind-Body Approach to Healing Sexual Trauma

$25.95

Description

Healing Sex is an affirming, sex-positive approach to recovery from incest and rape. While most books on the topic broach sexuality only to reassure women that it is all right to say no to unwanted sex, this one encourages women to learn how to say yes to their own desires, on their own terms. It is for all women – heterosexual, bisexual, lesbian, partnered and single – who want to delight in their own sexuality. Based on the author’s extensive training and experience in working with abuse survivors, Healing Sex offers a complete guide to sexual recovery:

  • Pleasure and Desire: How to discover and fully own your desires on your own terms. Nonjudgmental support for all sexual styles and interests.
  • Dissociation: Discover how you checked out to survive and how you can check in now for healing and your own sexual expression.
  • Embodied Sex: No more grocery lists and wrestling matches with relics of the past! Learn how to be in your body during sex, present for yourself and your partners.
  • Consent and Boundaries: The yes, no, and maybe of sex. How to say yes to your desires and develop boundaries to take care of yourself.
  • Triggers: A sex life built around triggers becomes no sex life at all. Practical tools for healing through triggers while enjoying all the delights and complexities of a fully embodied sex life.
  • Sex Information: Chock full of sex-positive information on all aspects of sexual response, masturbation, and partner sex, tailored to the needs of survivors.
