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! 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 sexuality within Relationships. From science to tantra, from sex positive pleasure to ancient practices, monogamy to poly - there is something for everyone.

The 5 Love languages

Someone told me once, communication is only 7% verbal. Great sex is about Great communication, it is about giving and receiving, this constant flow of language that is not just verbal but fully sensate. If you do not know your love language, or your partners love language I suggest you find out pronto.

The Ethical Slut

One of the most valuable things I learned from exploring open sexual lifestyles is that our programming about love, intimacy, and sex can be rewritten. The Ethical Slut is a guide to all things poly and everything it encompasses: emotional honesty, mutually agreed upon boundaries, open communication, and more. Even if you don't want to open things up, the lessons of this book can be a good foundation for growth in your partnership.Buy here
