Product Description

Review

“This is the best book I have ever read about sexual desire and why some couples just stop having sex, and what they can do about it. Come As You Are is an absolutely necessary guide for all couples who want to understand the ups and downs in their own sex life. It is a must read!”
—John Gottman, Ph.D., author of The Seven Principles for Making Marriage Work

“Emily Nagoski has written one of the most important books about sex any woman (or anybody else) could ever pick up, full of insights that are both fascinating and deeply useful. Synthesizing new research and theory about sexuality with old-school sex-positive information of the sort you didn’t learn in sex ed (unless, perhaps, you are a Unitarian, or Scandinavian, or lucky enough to be in Dr. Nagoski’s class), I guarantee Come As You Are will open minds and change lives.”
— Carol Queen, Ph.D., Founding director, Center for Sex & Culture

“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.”
—Refinery29

“Lots of books — and articles and experts — claim to have the keys to transform your sex life. This one actually has it. It isn’t as fast as taking a pill, but it will last a whole lot longer. You will find no hot new bedroom moves — it’s that deeper-level soul stuff. You know, the stuff that actually works.”
—Salon.com

“Wonderful new language to help us articulate to women (and their lovers) what is going on.”
Huffington Post

“Like a punch to the gut. When I read the passage that made me realize—after all these years—that I was not actually broken, I began to cry. . . . I wished [Nagoski] was someone who was actively in my life, someone I could reach out to for grounding every time I momentarily forgot the lessons in her book.”
—Book Riot

“Nagoski’s book deserves plaudits for the rare achievement of merging pop science and the sexual self-help genre in prose that’s not insufferably twee. . . . [Come As You Are] offers up hard facts on the science of arousal and desire in a friendly and accessible way.”
The Guardian (UK)

Format: Kindle Edition
There is probably not much more that needs to be said about this book. The number of pre-publication reviews and 5-star readers’ reviews posted here would seem to say it all. As a researcher into motivation and sexual desire myself, I would just like to add that the science that Emily cites is of a cutting-edge nature. Valuable as they are, often such findings are simply deposited in learned and largely-inaccessible journals, thereby having little or no relevance to anyone not in the particular scientific area. Emily makes the latest discoveries and most recent theories accessible to all in an easy-to-read style and with humour, relevance to real issues in the sex lives of millions, and with the help of personal anecdotes from her own life. Although targeted primarily to women, it could be read with equal benefit by men. Emily suggests:
“Do I think that living with confidence and joy and respecting everyone’s sexual autonomy could play a role in preventing cancer, solving the climate crisis, or building world peace? Yes, actually”.
I agree.
Frederick Toates, author of ‘How Sexual Desire Works: The Enigmatic Urge’

This book was very heplful to help me take a good look at my own private life. Sometimes the authors gets a bit too "new age" for my taste, like when she goes on and on about those garden metaphors, but overall that is not a big problem. I really appreciated the scientific approach to improving women's sexuality and will try to apply it in my own life.

A book EVERY woman, girl, grandma should read and pass on or spread the word. It is written in laymans terms which is absolutely wonderful. It is very, very refreshing. If my daughter was fifteen I would especially give it to her. Children, teens and especially girls can be cruel and this book gets to the nitty gritty of everything that is going on is NORMAL. Yes, you might be different looking - but you're normal. For the woman who has inhibitions about herself - this book will help to break them down. We should always wanting to learn more and have better experiences and this book can help tremendously. Luv it, luv it, luv it. I will definitely be looking for other works by this author.
