We are so excited from this book by our friend Carlyle Jansen. Perfect for any vagina-owner who wants great, honest, sex-positive info on orgasm, masturbation and more. We highly recommend Sex Yourself!
Everyone knows sex in a long-term relationship can get stale sometimes. But isn't the same true for masturbation? Just like a familiar sexual relationship, where you fall into a pattern using the same moves and positions, masturbation can become routine and frankly boring. Just because you're only getting yourself off doesn't mean you don't deserve an exciting, satisfying experience.
Sex Yourself teaches women how to reach orgasm and how to have better orgasms by themselves. Learn how the amazing experiences you have alone can be re-created with a partner, helping to enhance your sexual relationships. Try new techniques and accessories to have mind-blowing sex in brand new ways.
Sex educator Carlyle Jansen provides a modern look at masturbation, self-love, and orgasm that features fun yet informative full-color illustrations throughout.
"Sex Yourself is more than a comprehensive manual on self-pleasure. It's the perfect primer for those looking to broaden their horizons, boost their sexual self-esteem, and have hotter sex for years to come. Read and practice with pleasure!" - Jessica O'Reilly, Ph.D., author of Hot Sex Tips, Tricks, and Licks
"Sex isn't defined by two people of opposite genders in the missionary position; it's defined by YOU. Sex Yourself reminds us that mutual masturbation and self-love are gratifying experiences. Keep this book on your nightstand, light some candles, dress up, and have a date for one tonight. You deserve it." - Amie Harwick, M.A., author of The New Sex Bible for Women
"Carlyle's use of the words 'solo-sex' and 'solo-play' celebrates the rights of all people to be sexual and explore their pleasure potential. She takes the reader through various terrains that debunk myths of solo-sex, provide accurate information about anatomy and physiology, and explore pleasure beyond the genitals, while honoring the most important sexual relationship: the one with ourselves." - Carm De Santis, registered sex therapist
"We women have had our minds filled with negative messages, especially about female pleasure. It's time to own our sexuality and this book helps you do it! Carlyle covers all the bases -- no female body part nor question has gone unturned or unanswered. I loved every page and it will be on my must-read list for clients." - Laurie Betito, Ph.D., author of The Sex Bible for People Over 50
