A groundbreaking look at improving desire, arousal, and sexual satisfaction through mindfulness. Studies show that approximately half of all women experience some kind of sexual difficulty at one point in their lives, with lack of interest in sex being by far the most common--and the most distressing. And when sex suffers, so do all other areas of life. But it doesn't have to be that way. In Better Sex through Mindfulness, acclaimed psychologist and sex researcher Lori A. Brotto, offers a groundbreaking approach to improving desire, arousal, and satisfaction inside--and outside of--the bedroom. A pioneer in the use of mindfulness for treating sexual difficulties, Brotto has helped hundreds of women cultivate more exciting, fulfilling sexual experiences.

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 Sexual difficulties are extremely common. Many women around the world and across ages have difficulty reaching orgasm. Sex is often unrewarding for many women. #2 The most common sexual complaint among women is a lack of sexual interest, which is endorsed by 32 percent of the youngest age group (eighteen to twenty-nine years old) and 27 percent of the oldest age group (fifty to fifty-nine years old). #3 The Global Study of Sexual Attitudes and Behaviors, which was conducted in twenty-nine countries, found that women in North Africa and the Middle East, East Asia, and Southeast Asia were more likely to experience problems with sexual interest, inability to reach orgasm, painful sex, not finding sex pleasurable, and difficulties with lubrication. #4 The most common sexual complaint among women is low sexual desire, which is consistent with the fact that half of women report at least one sexual concern lasting three months or longer over the previous year.

“Peters takes readers on her own personal journey from trauma to reconnecting with her body, emotions, and eventually her own desire and sexuality.” —Xanet Pailet, bestselling author of Living an Orgasmic Life We know, increasingly, how common and devastating sexual violence is for women, but we don’t always talk about how survivors can recover from the trauma and return to desire, sexuality, trust, and pleasure. Want is the story of how Julie Peters did just that—and how you can, too. In the years after the assault, Julie was in what she calls the fog of trauma: the colorless, tasteless experience of barely getting through the day. No one—not counsellors, support groups, or other survivors—could give her any advice about how to find the desire that could bring her back to joy, intimacy, and connection. She had to make it up on her own. In Want, Julie tells the story of getting from the devastation of trauma to living a full life in eight sometimes challenging, often bumbling, and occasionally delightful steps. Your loved ones may not know how to support you, but they can learn more about your experiences and how to walk alongside you through this book, just as you can learn how to recover from the trauma you’ve experienced. Want offers a window into one person’s experience of recovery—plus the happy ending we all need to know is possible after trauma. “With unwavering honesty, penetrating insight, warmth, humor, and aplomb, she lays out strategies for a tangible, nourishing, and vitally ferocious self-love.” —Jeremy Radin, poet, author of Dear Sal

“I learned about the mechanics of female sexual pleasure in my sex ed class.” “I am able to have a difficult conversation with my partner about our relationship.” “I can boldly and openly carry a tampon to the restroom in public.” "I am able to pursue my pleasure and my partner's pleasure during sex." “I am totally comfortable being naked in front of a new partner.” If you disagreed with any of these statements (or all of them), you’re not alone. You are one of many, many women who are feeling the effects of “sexual madness.” According to Jennifer Gunsaullus, PhD, sociologist and sex coach, it’s time for women to break free from the societal baggage they carry in relation to sexual education, expectations, and fulfillment. From Madness to Mindfulness sets out to help women empower themselves to transition out of a state of sexual madness, and into a state of sexual mindfulness—a state in which women can give themselves permission to feel more worthy of love and great sex (and then have it!). Dr. Jenn will guide you through the process of assessing levels of “mis-education” in regard to relationships, communication, sex, passion, desire, and body image, and integrating mindfulness practices to overcome your own personal “madness.” Replete with personal anecdotes and a wide array of client stories, along with guided questions, action items, and tips to create a personal Reinventing Sex plan, Dr. Jenn will help you to become a thriving sexual being… on your own terms.
