Healing Sex is the encouraging, sex-positive guide for all women survivors of sexual assault - heterosexual, bisexual, lesbian, coupled, and single - who want to delight in their own sexuality. While most books on the topic broach sexuality to reassure women that it's all right to say "no" to unwanted sex, Healing Sex encourages women to learn how to say "yes" to their own desires and on their own terms: This recently updated edition addresses for the first time the field of Somatics, a new development in the field of trauma about the role of the body as an essential place of change, learning, and transformation. There is also an updated bibliography and resource section, and chapters dealing with the following areas:

*Pleasure and Desire -Discover and fully own your desires on your own terms. Nonjudgmental support for all sexual styles and interests.

*Dissociation -Discover how you "checked out" to survive and how you can "check in" now for healing and your own sexual expression.

*Embodied Sex -Learn how to be in your body during sex.

*Consent and Boundaries -The "yes", "no", and "maybe" of sex. How to say "yes" to your desires and develop boundaries to take care of yourself.

*Triggers -Practical tools for healing through triggers while enjoying all the delights and complexities of a fully-embodied sex life.

*Sex Information -Chock full of sex-positive information on all aspects of sexual response, masturbation, and partnered sex, tailored to the needs of survivors.

*Emotional Healing and Intimacy -Don't settle for less than you want! Grant yourself permission to cultivate pleasure, sexual delight, and love.
