In every relationship, family and culture there are rules and taboos that control how we think and feel about sexuality, and because sexual rules are mostly unspoken, the secrecy and silence contributes to an environment of ignorance and shame around normal human sexuality. This workbook gives you a concrete method for breaking down the belief systems you have about sex, while learning more about yourself in the process. The final result is true understanding of your sexual self, and increased health and pleasure in your body and relationships. You can apply what you learned in The New Rules of Sex, but even those who have not read the book can benefit from the journey they take in this workbook. You deserve health, comfort, pleasure and safety in your sexuality, and it’s up to you to get there!
Will you take the first step? This workbook can show you how.
A great workbook that takes you through how you formed your beliefs and feelings around sex and sexuality as you grew up, and then helps you figure out how you want express your sexuality now. I found the questions to be very insightful and the author led me through the process of figuring out where my ideas and feelings about sex came from in a very gradual, easy to swallow way (no pun intended).
I really appreciated how the author gave examples from her own experiences on sexuality. Although they were very different from mine, it was so refreshing to hear someone talk about their sexuality in such an open, non-shameful way and it encouraged me to express my answers openly as well.
I recommend this for anyone who wants to take a look at how their beliefs about sex, their body, and their sexual likes and dislikes have played out in their past and continue to play out in their lives today. It’s great to find a resource that can guide me to think about these things through such a welcoming, open, and non-judgemental process. I definitely think this is valuable for anyone what wants to get to knows themselves better and get past the mindset that sex and sexuality are in any way shameful or wrong.
Wow! This brought such clarity to a somewhat clouded part of me. I now understand that so much of what I was believing and carrying was not actually my ‘stuff’ but a lot of inherited and learned patterns that truly no longer serve me! Thank you Lauren! I highly recommend this workbook to anyone that has sex!
I love this author. her books are defying and perspective changers. Her take on the same old same old themes and controversies is new and fresh, really inspiring the reader to look for more.
