Healing Sex is the encouraging, sex-positive guide for all women survivors of sexual assault- heterosexual, bisexual, lesbian, coupled, and single- who want to delight in their own sexuality. While most books on the topic broach sexuality to reassure women that it's all right to say "no" to unwanted sex, Healing Sex encourages women to learn how to say "yes"- to their own desires and on their own terms. A new introduction explores developments in the field of trauma and the role of the body as an essential place of change, learning, and transformation. Discover how you "checked out" to survive and how you can "check in" now for healing and your own sexual expression. Discover practical tools for healing through triggers while enjoying all the delights and complexities of a fully-embodied sex life. Don't settle for less than you want! Grant yourself permission to cultivate pleasure, sexual delight, and love. 308 pages.
