Sexually Shy: The Inhibited Woman's Guide To Good Sex
We all know the saying, "better than sex." Some people say that chocolate is better than sex. Others say that bungee jumping is better than sex. Still others claim that drugs are better than sex. Supposedly, there are a lot of things out there that are better than sex. However, I never use this phrase because, to me, there is nothing better than good sex. And in my opinion, people who use this phrase probably have never had good sex and most of the time it probably isn't even their fault. It's because they're sexually shy. Due to their upbringing or other factors in their lives, they become overly inhibited. This is what is keeping them from having the good sex that they deserve. That's what this book is about. It's about the stuff you need to know that no one bothered to tell you. It's about getting over your sexual shyness and freeing yourself to get to that better sex. Exploring subjects such as exhibitionism, repression, and oral sex, Sexually Shy: The Inhibited Woman's Guide To Good Sex is a must-read for anyone seeking a more fulfilling, less inhibited sex life.
This book really helped me.

I really benefited from this book. The author takes a very readable and relateable approach to a subject that so many women deal with - being overly inhibited. So many books out there assume that a woman has either been completely sheltered or is a oversexed wild uninhibited freak. This book meets the reader in the middle where most of us (I think) are. It is not overly clinical and does not attempt to psychoanalyze or berate the reader, but rahter gives tips and advice for overcoming inhibition in a very open and commonsense way.
I think that many parents, with all good intentions teach their daughters to be cautious and chaste (at least I would hope so!), but never really teach them when it's okay to let go. It's an uncomfortable subject, sure, but still it's an element that many of us lack. We never really learn when to take off the reins and enjoy ourselves sexually. This book can really hope overcome this. It uses real language and i think a very realistic approach to... read more
thinking of things in a new way...

This book is a basic guide to help someone who needs to overcome feeling of shyness and intimadation in regards to common sex topics and how to approach their partner. It explains how it's OK to want and ask for sex and that not all sexual activities are bad or immoral despite a strong religous upbringing or other influences. This book is broken down into chapters that help readers cope with feelings and information about emotional baggage, repression, forgiveness, looks, orgasms, masturbation, porn, foreplay, and talking to your partner. It also explores options and alternatives to the traditional missionary position. There is nothing extreme, just helpful information to help the reader become more comfortable with their sexuality.
This book is not for someone who already has a lot of experience in a variety of sex situations but just doesn't know how to ask for it. If you are just looking for a better way to communicate with your partner, then I would suggest "Getting the... read more
Help for the inhibited.
By Hayden Kirkland - June 10, 2009
This book has been extraordinarily helpful to me. Having grown up in a very religious and strict home, it's hard to be very inhibited and have a lot of guilt regarding sex. However, after having read the author's viewpoint on the subject, I think that I'm finally overcoming it. It was so refreshing to read that someone else has had this problem and what they did to get past it. It's also good to have specific problems addressed without the author getting too clinical or dry. I recommend it strongly.
