Come as You Are

Come as You Are

by Emily Nagoski


The sad truth, for the majority of us, is that our experience in the bedroom could be much better. But we get so awkward trying to talk to people about it that we end up just settling with the way things are.

There's no need to despair. Just because your sex life might not be at its best yet, you can still get there. You can discover just what it takes to give and receive immense pleasure between the sheets.

Emily Nagoski is a sex educator, researcher, and writer, and in her book Come as You Are: The Surprising New Science that Will Transform Your Sex Life, she debunks the myths that make your sex life more difficult, and gives you a new understanding to make it better.

Favorite quote

We know by now that there's no such thing as normal — or rather, that we're all normal. We're all made of the same parts as everyone else, organized in a unique way. No two alike.
