A Practical Guide to Sex: Finally, Helpful Sex Advice! (Practical Guide Series) Kindle Edition
Plenty of books on sex suggest that it has to be done in a certain way, or in a certain kind of relationship, or with certain people. This isn’t that kind of book.
Enjoy Sex is a truly practical, friendly guide through the confusing, and sometimes alarming, world of sex and sexuality. Its radical approach puts your experience at the heart of the book, and invites you to explore what might be enjoyable to you.
With the authors’ engaging and thoughtful style, the book challenges the messages we receive about ‘normal’ sex, looks at how to understand and care for yourself, delves into ideas of pleasure for different bodies, ages and tastes, explores relationships, and tackles the tricky topics of communication and consent.
So, throw out the rule book and learn to listen to your own desires. This may just be the most helpful book about sex ever.

This is a book that places self-understanding and consent at its centre. In order to access the type of intimacy that we may or may not want with others, we must first reconnect to our own bodies and the stories that our culture and experience have passed to us. In order to act compassionately and consensually towards others we must first exercise proper self-care in understanding what we value for our selves in this present moment. This is a book that seeks to move mindfulness from the meditation cushion and into the realm of our whole lives. In contrast to so much touted as “spiritual” sex, the erotic realities of solo sex, porn and consensual non-monogamies are explored as possible means for more fully “knowing thyself”.
In a world where the tyranny of performance and perfection threaten to disconnect ourselves from truly engaging with deep sensuality, Justin and Meg-John have provided us with an accessible tool-kit for tuning in to our own unique version of the erotic. A truly liberating work!
Don't look for this book to teach you any technics, but instead to change the way you think about sex.
That said, people mostly read sex 'manuals' hoping to learn how to have better sex, and this book can potentially help you do that on much deeper and more meaningful level.
The book is well written and engaging. I loved it.
As a sex therapist, this book is a useful tome to aid my clients in our Psychosexual therapy sessions. It is not a book for processing deeper emotional disturbances like sexual trauma and shame. Nonetheless, it is a useful compendium to keep by the bedside, the kitchen table or the stairway ;-)
