Great Sex Naturally by Dr. Laurie Steelsmith and Alex Steelsmith
I don't think it's possible for Great Sex Naturally to have had a more intriguing title. This book was written for women specifically, and authored by Dr. Laurie Steelsmith, and her husband Alex Steelsmith. As I guy, I was expecting it to be filled with Kama Sutra-like positions, and secret, little tricks you can perform with your anatomy. This wasn't the case, but I wasn't disappointed. There are plenty of sex books out there like that. This one's chief concern is to empower a healthy sexuality treated with a holistic, or whole person approach. This idea permeates the book, and offers some paradigm shifting ideas. Of course our heart health, diet, exercise, and self-esteem affect our sex lives, but at a cursory glance it just doesn't seem that way. Looking deeper, the authors make a great case for their point, that a holistic, or balanced approach to your entire life will greatly enhance your sex life as well. Great Sex Naturally is divided into two sections. The first part deals with balancing your lifestyle. The second part is about new ideas for enhancing your sex life. It seems to be written more for monogamous couples, but certainly, singles could benefit as well. This is a great reference book to keep around for the detailed information on harmonizing your hormones. There is also tons of great info on aphrodisiacs, lubricants, and pressure points which I think many people are going to find really exciting. FTC Disclosure: I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for this review. The opinion in this review is unbiased and reflects my honest judgment of the product.
