A new, practical workbook from the New York Times bestselling author of Come As You Are that allows you to apply the book's ground-breaking research and understanding of why and how women's sexuality works. In the twentieth century, women's sexuality was seen as 'Men's Sexuality Lite'- basically the same, but not quite as good. From genital response to sexual desire to orgasm, we just couldn't understand that complicated, inconsistent, crazy-making women's business. That is, until Emily Nagoski changed the game with her New York Times bestseller, Come As You Are. Using ground-breaking science and research, she proved that the most important factor in creating and sustaining a sex life filled with confidence and joy is not what the parts are or how they're organised, but how you feel about them. Which means that things like stress, mood, trust, and body image are not peripheral factors in a woman's sexual wellbeing; they are central to it. And, that even if you don't yet feel that way, you are already sexually whole. Nagoski's book changed countless women's lives and approaches to sex, and now she offers the next step. The Come As You Are Workbook is a practical companion to this bestselling guide, filled with new activities, prompts, and thought-provoking examples to help you exercise and expand on the knowledge you've learned. This collection of worksheets, journalling prompts, illustrations, and diagrams is a practical and engaging companion for anyone who wants to further their understanding of their own bodies and sex lives. Praise for Come As You Are- 'Nagoski's book deserves plaudits for the rare achievement of merging pop science and the sexual self-help genre in prose that's not insufferably twee ... Come As You Are offers up hard facts on the science of arousal and desire in a friendly and accessible way.' -The Guardian (UK) Praise for Come As You Are- 'This is the best book I have ever read about sexual desire and why some couples just stop having sex, and what they can do about it. Come As You Are is an absolutely necessary guide for all couples who want to understand the ups and downs in their own sex life. It is a must read!' -John Gottman, PhD, author of The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work Praise for Come As You Are- 'Emily Nagoski has written one of the most important books about sex any woman (or anybody else) could ever pick up, full of insights that are both fascinating and deeply useful. Synthesising new research and theory about sexuality with old-school sex-positive information of the sort you didn't learn in sex ed (unless, perhaps, you are a Unitarian, or Scandinavian, or lucky enough to be in Dr. Nagoski's class), I guarantee Come As You Are will open minds and change lives.' -Carol Queen, PhD, Founding director, Center for Sex & Culture
