An essential exploration of why and how sexuality works based on groundbreaking research and brain science that will radically transform your sex life into one filled with confidence and joy. The first lesson in this essential, transformative book by Dr. Emily Nagoski is that every vulva has it's own unique sexuality, like a fingerprint, and that it varies more than the penis in it's anatomy, sexual response mechanisms, and the way it respond to the sexual world. This book also discusses how sex happens within varying contexts, and all the complications of everyday life influence the context surrounding a vulva’s arousal, desire, and orgasm. Cutting-edge research across multiple disciplines tells us that the most important factor for vulva-owners in creating and sustaining a fulfilling sex life, is not what you do in bed or how you do it, but how you feel about it. This means that stress, mood, trust, and body image are not peripheral factors in sexual wellbeing; they are central to it. Once you understand these factors, and how to influence them, you can create for yourself better sex and more profound pleasure than you ever thought possible. And Emily Nagoski can prove it.
