Sex Positivity Starts With These 5 Breakthrough Feminist Sexuality Books

Sex doesn’t have to be complicated when it’s viewed as a natural and healthy part of society.

Whether we like it or not, sex is still a taboo subject. It’s true we don’t see clear stigma like we used to. But it’s likely that those feelings of disrespect lie deep within society’s subconscious.

The sex-positive movement aims to change the deeply ingrained historical hangover from the past. These books break down the unhealthy traditions that are still haunting us and are a key to becoming sex-positive. These authors are just fab!

#1 Living an Orgasmic Life by Xanet Pailet

I grew up with sex being a shameful topic. I then swung the other way in college and treated sex cheaply and numbly. This book made me, for the first time, appreciate what I contributed to sex, what sex (and a true orgasm) could be, and that both were something to DELIGHT in.

#5 Doing It by Hannah Witton

I love this book because it breaks down so many barriers around sexuality. It empowers women to embrace their sexuality and not to be ashamed of it. Hannah doesn’t hold back and goes into many personal stories which are extremely relatable which completely shifted my perspective around slut-shaming and the dangers which go along with it. Even as a registered sex therapist, I learned several life lessons from this book. The most valuable of which was to conduct all relationships on MY terms, without fear of judgment from others.
