The first encouraging, sex-positive guide for all women survivors of sexual assault — heterosexual, bisexual, lesbian, coupled, and single — who want to reclaim their sex lives. While most books on the topic broach sexuality only to reassure women that it is all right to say “no” to unwanted sex, Healing Sex encourages women to learn how to say “yes” — to their own desires and on their own terms. This mind-body approach to healing from sexual trauma was created by Staci Haines, who has been educating in the area of sexual abuse, sex education, and somatic healing for over 15 years. Her techniques are ideal for anyone looking for a new way to heal from trauma, beyond traditional talk therapy.

  1. 5 out of 5 Like turning a light on.

    Shawna

    After seeing this book suggested by Zoe Ligon on instagram I picked up a copy. As a survivor of CSA my entire sex life as an adult was shaped by that experience, sometimes in ways that I never realized. This book was like turning a light on. It focuses heavily on somatics, which is the connection between mind and body and how they are interwoven. The author explains how trauma imprints on the physical body as well as the psychological and emotional self, and how healing is needed for all three. There are many books out there for survivors but this is the first that I have read that encouraged healing through sexuality. This book made such an impact on me that my partner had asked me if they could borrow and read it as well. I’ve done a lot of mindful healing over the years but this helped me reclaim my sexuality in a way that I didn’t understand was possible.

  2. 5 out of 5 Grounding and empowering

    Em

    This book is a truly wonderful and comprehensive resource for anyone healing from sexual trauma — it is specifically written for women survivors of CSA, but I think the techniques and the kind, caring way the book is set up will resonate with many. It is sex-positive in that it encourages you to explore only as much as you decide you want to, set boundaries, familiarize yourself with triggers and heal by revaluing and reclaiming your sexuality on your own terms. It’s a gentle yet powerful read, and is extremely helpful specifically for feeling more grounded and present in your own body. If you have ever experienced dissociation during any type of sexual experience, this book will give you solid, helpful ways to bring you back into your body.

  3. 5 out of 5 Really great resource

    Morgan

    While this is more specific to family/csa related sexual trauma, it was still relevant to me as someone who experienced SA. There was a lot of good information, and it felt like the author took a lot of time to cover all the bases in terms of processing sexual trauma in a healthy way and providing a sense of hope for survivors. There’s no pressure to move forward sexually and when you’re ready, the tips provided on connecting with your body are really useful things that you could even share with your therapist.
