Book recommendations are one of the most common questions I get asked when it comes to exploring sexuality. When you don’t know where to start, the choices out there are overwhelming and if you are anything like me you don’t want to waste time (or money) reading a shite book…right! ha! For a book about sex to be worth the read, it has to be 1) from someone you trust andddd 2) not too…dry. Well, lucky for you I am an absolute book junkie so I done the hard work of reading the shite books for you! Below are a list of some of my favourite books to inspire you to discover and explore female sexuality. From science to tantra, from sex positive pleasure to ancient practices - there is something for everyone.

The Wild Woman’s Way
Author | Michaela Boehm
For my yoga friends, “The Wild Woman’s Way” offers a spiritual approach for women to connecting or reconnecting with yourself. Michaela Boehm, has a background in Tantra and focuses on regaining connection through the "Wild Woman'' archetype whose story of "body Intelligence" has been passed down for thousands of years. I have always found Michaela’s teaching to be a gentle, pragmatic and beautiful invitation to re-wild yourself, stripping away all that is not your true nature and leaving you inspired and curious to discover the wild woman within.Buy here

The whole lesbian sex book
Author | Felice Newman
My experiences with women have been some of the more revealing, pleasurable and beautiful explorations within my sexual discovery. Whether you desire to engage with women or not, read this excerpt by Felice Newman and tell me you don’t want to read more…
"What makes me a lesbian sex expert is that I have devoted myself to erotic exploration. I treat my sex life as an adventure story that builds heat with each episode. I'm curious. I seek abundance. Ample pleasure. Innumerable orgasms. Voluptuous moments bursting with erotic energy. I believe we all deserve as much erotic pleasure as life can offer — which is more pleasure really than you or I can conceive of."
