Come As You Are: The Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life
An essential exploration of women's sexuality that will radically transform your sex life into one filled with confidence and joy.
Researchers have spent the last decade trying to develop a 'pink pill' for women that would function like Viagra does for men. So where is it? Well, for reasons this book makes crystal clear, that pill will never exist - but, as a result of the research that's gone into it, scientists have learned more about how women's sexuality works than we ever thought possible, and Come as You Are explains it all.
The first lesson in this essential, transformative book is that every woman has her own unique sexuality, like a fingerprint, and that women vary more than men in our anatomy, our sexual response mechanisms, and the way our bodies respond to the sexual world. So we never need to judge ourselves based on others' experiences - because women vary, and that's normal. Second lesson: sex happens in a context. And all the complications of everyday life influence the context surrounding a woman's arousal, desire, and orgasm.
The most important factor for women, in creating and sustaining a fulfilling sex life, is not what you do in bed, but how you feel about it - which means that stress, mood, trust, and body image are central factors in a woman's sexual wellbeing. Once you understand these factors, you can create for yourself better sex and more profound pleasure than you ever thought possible.
