Come As You Are: The surprising new science that will transform your sex life
If you are a woman/vagina owner who is facing challenges with sex or asking yourself “is this normal?”, this book may be your key to a healthier sexual relationship with yourself and others. Personally, this book was pivotal in my sexual healing journey. As a victim and survivor of sexualized violence, I had an overwhelming sense of feeling sexually broken, pressured, and isolated. Emily’s words and real stories gave me the gift of self-compassion and an understanding for why I was doing and being a certain way. Her practical suggestions were incredibly helpful. Plus she’s very real and funny. If you have a partner, listen to the audiobook with them! (*errs on the heteronormative side).
