Overview

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 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. Critical Reviews: "Healthy sexuality is fundamental to building healthy lives, relationships, communities and societies, and we all could use some guidance. This honest and reassuring book is an excellent resource for those seeking greater confidence in, and understanding of, this basic right. Thank you, Dr. Brame!" - Nina Hartley, R.N., Author of Nina Hartley's Guide to Total Sex; "If you don't have a sex therapist on speed dial, Dr. Gloria Brame will be your emergency contact. Calling shenanigans on the way our culture deals with sexuality, The Truth About Sex plants a sex-positive flag into the American landscape." - Megan Andelloux, Certified Sexuality Educator, Board Certified Sexologist.

    AS GOOD AS IT GETS--Best Sexology Book of the 21st Century

    It is not an overstatement to say that this book is really as good as it gets-- in both highly interesting content and witty well-written prose. Dr. Brame introduces the reader to her new sex trilogy by treating the reader to a book that is very hard to put down, while leaving the reader eagerly anticipating the next two books in the series. She takes the reader on a pleasurable journey into the history and vicissitudes of sexual expression in the modern world, using therapeutic insight and a great sense of humor. By itself, the author's analysis of the physiological benefits of sex makes the book a "must-read". If every person had access to this book, there is no doubt that their lives would be enriched immeasurably. I can't wait to read the next two books in the planned trilogy.
