Taking Sexy Back (eBook)
For women, sex has been hijacked. Today’s sexual climate leaves little to no space for honoring the complexities of sex—sex as pleasure, sex as connection, sex as creative expression, and sex as healing. In Taking Sexy Back, relationship expert Alexandra Solomon shows women that they are more than just sexy objects of someone else’s desire, and offers real tools to help women explore their own sexuality, communicate their needs, draw boundaries to be safe, and build the satisfying relationships they truly want.
