The Best Sex Books

Sexuality is a natural part of being human, but it’s often kept secret and surrounded by taboos. Surprisingly, many women feel unsatisfied in bed, despite some men claiming to be skilled lovers. It’s time to face the truth and explore the amazing resources available to us. In this article, we delve into the world of sexual exploration and show you how reading sex-positive books can transform your intimate experiences.

Let’s talk about sex.

Our parents and elders were not always aware of when we started having sex. For various reasons, we did not tell them or discuss our sexual desires with them. Therefore, many of us had to figure it out on our own. Some people read sex books, watched pornographic content, or received tips from friends who had already had sex numerous times.

If you’re looking for ways to give or receive maximum sexual pleasure, consider reading books about sex. In this article, we will share some sex-positive books that can help you spice up your sex life.

Why You Should Read Books About Sex

Apart from spicing up intercourse with your partner, there are many other reasons why you should read sex books. They include:

  1. Sex books provide a safe and private environment to learn about intercourse and how to practice it healthily.
  2. They demystify sexual myths and confusions. They also give you the confidence to explore your sexuality and communicate your desires to your partner.
  3. These books teach you new techniques you can explore with your partner or alone.
  4. Reading them with your partner might increase intimacy and curiosity. This results in an increased desire to explore each other’s bodies.
  5. These books empower you to own your sexuality without shame.
  6. You will gain insight that’d help you achieve a healthy sex life.

Dear men, get in here! Even if you don’t read any other sex book on this list, you have to read this one. She Comes First teaches you how to pleasure a woman until she climaxes before you start seeking your own pleasure.

Drawing from his several years of experience as a sex therapist, Dr. Ian Kerner uses this book to teach men the ABC of giving women the right stimulation that results in toe-curling orgasms.

In this book, Diana Richardson takes you on a journey to unlearn the hard, fast orgasm-driven sprint and learn how to practice a slow, passionate, sustainable, and pleasurable intimacy.

The Science of Kissing by Sheril Kirshenbaum

Some people say that kissing is more intimate than having actual sex. While you may want to argue this, you can’t wave off the fact that a passionate kiss is the starting point of intense lovemaking.

Pleasure Activism by Adrienne Maree Brown
