Publisher's Summary

An essential exploration of why and how women's sexuality works - based on groundbreaking research and brain science - 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 to 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 in the last few years have learned more about how women's sexuality works than we ever thought possible, and Come as You Are explains it all....

    "BUY THIS BOOK!"
    Would you listen to Come as You Are again? Why?

    YES! I finished it and the next day started at the beginning again.


    Any additional comments?

    I have read about six books on the topic of "sex self help" in the past several months and this one changed EVERYTHING! Emily is funny and smart and relatable and nonjudgmental. Her advice completely changed the way I think about my sexuality and may just end up saving my marriage. I am SO grateful. Buy this book! Buy it now!

    "Positive, Encouraging, Exciting"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    As a sex educator, I encounter many couples with mismatched libido and women who feel like they are "broken." This book taught me SOOO many new concepts I am eager to share! It is easy to understand, eye opening, based on science, and encouraging. ALL women should read it, and all men should, too! We need to come to a common understanding of how society skews male and female sexuality. We all have the same parts, they're just organized in different ways and women have to deal with so many challenges.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The author Emily reads the audio version and lends such a positive, upbeat attitude to the learning process. You can visualize the smile on her face as she shares insight. Very comforting and pleasant.


    What does Emily Nagoski bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I ended up buying a paperback version so I could mark it up - there were so many key points I wanted to remember. I kept rewinding and listening again. Invaluable info.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    If someone listens carefully to this book, it can change their life. It can help them accept who they are, which is key to being comfortable with your sexuality.


    Any additional comments?

    This book can change lives for the better. So sympathetic, helpful, comprehensive, positive. I'm so impressed with the information shared.

    "Please stop what you are doing and read this book."

    Every one should read this book. I know it is geared towards women, but really anyone who has a vulva or is interested in spending time with one should read it.

    "A must-read book for anyone who's a member of the human race"

    This book covers so much and you can learn a tremendous amount from it. Learn how we are all the same, and yet all unique, made up of the same parts, with accelerators and brakes, who need the proper context and may be sexually concordat and how in the end we're all normal, we're all wonderful!

    "very educational!"

    As a man who has always been fascinated by the fairer sex, I absolutely loved this audio book. It's a treasure trove of information that I had never heard before, and how it's explained is easy to understand. The performance was very well done as well. 10/10 and I might just have to buy the hard copy as well

    "Amazing and transformative"

    As a sex therapist I think I know things about sex. This book taught me more than I thought possible. It makes research understandable. Read it!

    "Every Woman should Read"

    I am a woman that is very comfortable in her sexuality and has a high drive (or as more accurately described, has a sensitive gas peddle and not a sensitive break). And I still learned so much about human sexuality and embracing who we are
