Finding Your Sexual Voice promotes the genuine understanding of strong female sexuality and empowers women to value desire, pleasure, eroticism, and satisfaction. The book confronts myths and misunderstandings about female sexuality, especially desire, and encourages an increased understanding of healthy couple sexuality so that the woman and man can be intimate and erotic allies.
Each chapter includes a detailed psychosexual exercise, as well as a range of motivating case studies, to help women to discover their sexual style and value their sexual voice. The guide also expands the concept of sex to include sensual, playful, and erotic touch, and emphasizes the multiple roles and meanings of the Good Enough Sex (GES) model.
This accessible and powerful book is pro-female, pro-couple, and pro-sexuality, and will be valuable reading for women, from 25-85, looking to build strong, resilient desire and to embrace female sexuality. It will also be of use to couples who are dealing with sexual dissatisfaction, as well as all mental health professionals involved in the fields of marriage, couple, and sex therapy.
