The Truth About Sex: A Sex Primer for the 21st Century (Volume 1, Sex & Self)
Author: Gloria G. Brame, Ph.D.
Summary of The Truth About Sex
Have you ever wondered why we think one type of sex is better than another? Are inhibitions or confusion about sex holding you back? Do you think you’re a sex addict? Have you given up on having good orgasms with your partner? Are you worried sex will break up your relationship? The Truth About Sex will set you free.
The Truth About Sex by Gloria Brame is an important new work by internationally renowned sex therapist, bestselling author (Different Loving, Come Hither), and sex blogger/historian (Gloria’s Oversexed Mind, The Bilerico Project), Gloria G. Brame, Ph.D. Twenty years of Dr. Brame’s research on human sexuality is distilled into three fast-paced volumes that will change the way you look at sex. They offer reality-based models which combine Brame’s original theories, hard facts, and over 10 years of highly successful, results-oriented sex therapy. Brame addresses the most intimate, complicated questions about sex in page-turning, warmly empathic prose. Using cutting-edge sex and medical studies, historical research, and composite case studies from her private practice, she teaches adults how to make sexual ecstasy a reality.
Volume 1, SEX AND THE SELF, is a complete primer on masturbation, orgasm and new models for talking about, thinking about and understanding your inner sexual identity. It includes Dr. Brame’s best clinical techniques for improving sexual performance and increasing every adult’s potential for complete sexual satisfaction.
Review of The Truth About Sex
The Truth About Sex is a valuable, important book about, well, sex…plain and simple. This isn’t the book about the techniques or tips/tricks, etc. It is about you and how to fully grasp your sexuality as an individual, before even tackling sex with a partner. This should be a book for everyone — but that’s only if everyone is open-minded, enlightened, or willing to become so.
With topics like masturbation and orgasms as well as open, honest discussions about how we think and talk about sex, sexual problems, and sexual intelligence, The Truth About Sex is going to be popular. It should also be well-read — and embraced. It’s hard, however, to shake the stigma of frank, bold discussions about sex. Not pornography, not obscenity, mind you, but just human sexuality. Gloria Brame, however, has courageously forged ahead and produced a work that is encouraging and supportive about a facet of our lives that is too often shrouded in misunderstanding, fear, and/or shame. This is why I describe Brame’s book as valuable and important.
Who should read this? Like I said, everyone. I’m pretty open-minded and liberal when it comes to the topic of sex, yet I am so glad that I read The Truth About Sex. It is thought-provoking and insightful. For those who aren’t so open-minded and liberal, then I definitely recommend Brame’s book. Your sex life will change, if you let it (and want it)…which will lead to a life change.
