Dr. Tina's book! Written for anyone affected by sexual shame, as well as for clinicians who treat people who have been impacted. We know from research that sexual shame has a profound impact on our ability to give and receive love. It causes people to feel disgust toward their bodies and sexual identity, doubting their worth. It impacts communication, trust, emotional and physical intimacy. America was situated inside a conservative religious history, which denied comprehensive sex education to its public due to the belief that sexuality is dirty. This book tells the story of that history, the positive sexual story we were meant to know, shares a model for how to heal sexual shame, and provides touch and non-touch exercises to try.
