There are so many meaningful books and resources out there, it’s hard to keep up! Whether you want to read about relationships, business, health, finances or any other topic the books to read are endless.
I just finished a book about sexual desire, sexual responsiveness, and overall attitude about sex. As a relationship center, intimacy and sexuality are often topics of concern that we address at Therapy With Heart. I believe this book can alter your relationship with your partner, with your body, and your own sexuality. Although I highly recommend reading the book, I’m also realistic that many are busy and find it hard to find time to read so I decided to summarize some important points from the book here. Hopefully, it will interest you enough to buy your own copy of Come As You Are by Emily Nagoski.
I hope I gave you some information to think about. There are many negative beliefs that women often carry such as “something is wrong with me because I can’t orgasm with intercourse” (as many as 75-80% of women don’t), or “I must have hormone deficiencies because my sex drive is so low” (definitely go to get your hormones checked, but also take some time to explore what’s getting in your way of intentionally creating time for intimacy), or “I can’t relax and enjoy intimacy with my partner because I feel so awful about my body” (most men want women who are engaged and passionate about being with them more than they care about weight or physical appearance). Because so many of my women clients struggle with these sexual issues, Come As You Are truly takes a simple and fresh approach that offers support and a fresh perspective to these very common problems. This book offers the possibility to shift our negative sexual culture into a positive one. I truly recommend reading it. Your sexual self deserves this time!
