Mindfulness research is clearly stated in an academic platform focused on sexuality in women. I loved the detailed studies and the specific exercises in the book. I have been practicing meditation and mindfulness casually for some time, and these exercises gave me new ideas and goals to work on to expand my practice. The book also validated my own personal journey of enhanced sexual satisfaction as I have learned to listen more to my body and quiet my mind chatter during sex...with amazing results. I highly recommend this book to anyone (male or female) interested in sex therapy or how to find ultimate satisfaction and joy in life! Mindfulness is the key to unlocking true peace and removing fear and anxiety from our lives.
Proves how using mindfulness can improve on the sexual problems being faced by women and certain men. The problems are presented in clear fashion and then are followed by an explanation of techniques to overcome these disfunction sand problems.
Lori Brotto clearly explains the 10+ years of scientific research (her own and that of her peers) that has created the field of mindfulness based sex therapy, while empowering the reader to immediately begin integrating these effective practices into their own lives. A must read for all sex educators, anyone who wants to better understand female sexuality, and all women who sense they can benefit from bringing mindful sex into their lives - so really, this book is for everyone!
This book helped my wife tremendously, it also incorporated well with our mindful lifestyle. There are so many components of sexuality, it is easy to miss them sometimes. I am grateful for Dr. Brotto’s ability to lay these out so clearly. And thank you artsofthought.com for the recommendation.
This book is timely, especially for women who blame others instead of taking responsibility for their own deficiencies. They need to take action and solve their own problem. The first step is to recognize the problem and the source of it!
