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....

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.
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.
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.
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.
This book can change lives for the better. So sympathetic, helpful, comprehensive, positive. I'm so impressed with the information shared.
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.
YES! I finished it and the next day started at the beginning again.
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!
this whole book took me by surprise! Very useful and very applicable to my life as well as my loved ones. I'm definitely recommending this to all my friends!
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!
I loved listening to this audiobook. I will be buying the actual book because I want to go back and read it, study it, and make my own notes. Every woman should read this book, Emily did a great job in presenting the information in a way that is easy to understand. Because some research has lied to us, we need to undo de damage by educating ourselves and others. I will share this book with all the women I know. Thanks, Emily!
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
There is very little science here. The book uses metaphors for poorly explained lab experiments and contains repetitive reassurances that you are beautiful and normal. The tone is patronizing, and the case studies are fictional. This is an attempt at therapy that only applies to women in happy, healthy, hetero, long term, monogamous relationships with a man who cares about you, finds you attractive, and loves you enough to put your pleasure first. How many people fit that demographic?
