Boehm's book The Wild Woman's Way was just recommended to us in last night's chat on pleasure and orgasm. From the book's website:
"Discover how to create and enjoy a pleasure-filled and meaningful life with this practical tantra handbook for the high-achieving modern woman... But what if there were a way to experience the simplest pleasures of our lives on a deeper level, freeing the body and psyche from these damaging patterns?"
Voices & Leaders
The book, the TedTalk, and the podcast from this award-winning author of New York Times bestseller Come as You Are: The Surprising New Science That Will Transform Your Sex Life.
“Emily Nagoski is worth her weight in TED Talks, and Come as You Are is a master-class in the science of sex.”
— Ian Kerner, sex therapist and bestselling author of She Comes First
“It’s the science of sex, decoded and demystified. Want to be educated on the latest findings about female genitalia? Of course you do. Empowering and sex-positive at best, this informative read makes for an enticing bedfellow.”
Her book Mating in Captivity is essential reading for anyone in a long-term relationship.
Her TedTalk on extramarital affairs is riveting, and her live therapy podcast is intimate and powerful.

Pleasure Activism: "How do we make social justice the most pleasurable human experience? How can we awaken within ourselves desires that make it impossible to settle for anything less than a fulfilling life?" Read her "mindset-altering essays, interwoven with conversations and insights from other feminist thinkers"
Listen to Kleinplatz on Emily and Amelia Nagoski's podcast (The Sex Episode), and read her book. A sex therapist's take, not on what's broken, but on Magnificant Sex: Lessons from Extraordinary Lovers? Dynamite!
Ecstasy is Necessary is an engaging intro to this sexual pioneer's work, and if you're curious about Tantra, her accessible book Urban Tantra is a great (and queer positive) place to start.
