Sex is essentially a simple biological function, as natural to our bodies as eating or sleeping. When things go wrong, some kind of fear or physical discomfort is often at the root of the problem. This workbook offers a gentle and effective guide to help women understand and begin to overcome the fear or pain that inhibits or blocks their sexuality.
Interweaving the voices of women who have struggled with these problems, the authors provide a series of exercises designed to help readers map the terra incognita of their own bodies and sexuality and work through healing treatment plans for specific problems.
This is a wonderfully clear, complete, detailed, and reassuring discussion of the sexual facts of life for women. It provides excellent questionnaires to help the reader identify her own unique sexual nature and needs, together with concrete procedures to solve problems and work toward a healthy and satisfying sex life.
