Books I Have Read – Enjoy Sex
Enjoy Sex: (How, when and if you want to): A Practical and Inclusive Guide
(This review has affliate link(s), but I bought my own copy and opinions are my own)
The Amazon Synopsis
Plenty of books on sex suggest that it has to be done in a certain way, or in a certain kind of relationship, or with certain people. This isn’t that kind of book.
Enjoy Sex is a truly practical, friendly guide through the confusing, and sometimes alarming, world of sex and sexuality. Its radical approach puts your experience at the heart of the book, and invites you to explore what might be enjoyable to you.
With the authors’ engaging and thoughtful style, the book challenges the messages we receive about ‘normal’ sex, looks at how to understand and care for yourself, delves into ideas of pleasure for different bodies, ages and tastes, explores relationships, and tackles the tricky topics of communication and consent.
So, throw out the rule book and learn to listen to your own desires. This may just be the most helpful book about sex ever.
Euphoric Epiphany’s Review
This book can be read by ANYONE. It doesn’t matter what you express, how you identify, or what parts you have. It doesn’t matter if you feel highly sexual or feel like you are not sexual at all. I almost wish it was required reading, but then maybe it wouldn’t be read as much as it needs to be!
This book expands the definition of sex to be inclusive of all sexuality. It says that it is not like other sex advice books, and that is very true. Many sex education books are just penis into vagina activities and positions with maybe some oral sex sprinkled in. Sex is SO MUCH more than that.
I appreciate the chapters on Self-Care, the different contexts for sex, and the emphasis on consent and communication. As well as the importance of throwing out what we think of as proper sex, the ideal sex society and media has chosen for us. Instead encouraging us to participate in sex that we enjoy (which may not fit into “proper” sex according to the messages we have been told about sex).
Check out the webpage for the book here. Not only does the website tell you about the book it includes podcasts and blogs about a variety of subjects. If you go to the Publications tab you can buy workbooks for some of the activities that are mentioned in the book!
