Wow. Just wow. This book lays it out... pretty much explains why you have the intimacy issues you have, and gives you solid resources and tools to have the kind of adult relationship you truly want. If all of my clients read and applied these concepts, I'd be out of a job.
One of the best things I've read on trust... David Richo is a therapist with a Buddhist background and his work is completely excellent. Click on the book image for more info or to purchase.
Women's Anatomy of Arousal offers solid information about female pleasure, in-depth learning on the erectile tissue network, and many exercises to access embodied sexuality. I love the content of this book. That said, be warned that it's heteronormative and gender-binary, which is sad. Click on the picture of the book to read more or purchase.
I recommend this book and the one below, to those who are working on reclaiming sexuality after sexual abuse. It's really the best somatic technology I've come across in regards to learning the body erotic, releasing trauma, and allowing pleasure. Click on any of the book pictures to read more or purchase.
