Who says books are boring? Sexual exploration in paperback

Who says books are boring? Sexual exploration in paperback

When you picture a book lover, you naturally envision a stereotypical bookworm sitting in settings of solitude, don’t you? But even for quiet bookworms, joy is amplified by sharing, relating and connection. 

But who said - Books are boring? If it's going to be about sexual exploration? Sexual wellbeing? 

Then you will also say like: 

Can’t get out of bed.

Send help…

Or books!

Yeah, just send BOOKS!

Sexuality is one of the ways that we become enlightened, actually, because it leads us to self-knowledge.   

If sexuality means saying yes to life, then you should be able to remain sexual until the day you die.   

From putting a condom on a banana in sex education class to having the talk about the birds and the bees with your parents when you’re growing up, learning about sex and sexuality can be seriously cringe. 

No one should have to settle for a subpar sex education and having ownership over your body is so important. Just because you’ve left the classroom doesn't mean it’s too late to learn something new about sexual health.

Whether it's being able to correctly name parts of your body to busting the myths of what happens when you go through the menopause, books can be a great way to clear things up in your head if you don’t have an expert on hand to ask. 

Spice up your fantasy life without having to interact with another person with these stories of sex and exploration! 

Sex books look to answer many questions. Why do we have sex? Why do we cheat?

Open-hearted sex makes us vulnerable.

Often, that’s why sex is such a big issue for unhappy couples. 

We expose our darkest desires. We struggle to perform in the bedroom. Lovemaking requires personal mastery.

But sex is more than removing the cultural shame ingrained in our brain.

Even masturbation is a touchy area for some people. It’s more than feeling comfortable about deeply connecting with the person we are making love with. 

We'd all love to be our best, most confident selves — in bed and out. But the truth is that everyone has their baggage and hangups. Some of us are insecure because of prior scenarios in relationships, or simply due to being in untried waters.

Great Experience. Great Value.

Enjoy a great reading experience when you can, whenever it's available.

Margot and Jishofen just couldn't get enough of the new book they just started reading that they bought online, meeting each day, venturing on new terms and way to release their sexual tension, yet questioning their sexual ability together. The two best friends were proud to find an unique time pass. 

Margot - Hey Jishofen, which page are you on? 

Jishofen - I am on chapter- 6. It's about how fantasies, day dreaming are super fun ways to know what you are interested in more? How fantasies speak a volume about your personality and perspectives.

Margot - That sounds amazing, I am looking forward to that chapter definitely. But you know what I am reading? I found this line in chapter 4; which says size of breast of a woman are unequal and there's nothing to worry about it because.... 

Jishofen - There are a number of reasons why a woman's breasts can change in size or volume, including trauma, puberty, and hormonal changes.

Margot - WOW! You remember it by heart? 

Jishofen - Who won't remember these facts, this book not only spice up your sex life but also gives you general knowledge! 

Margot - One little ice cube! Hahahaha (Laughing) 

Turn the Lights Low–or Use Candles. If you're nervous about him watching you, or about what you look like, then turn the lights low and use that ice cube on stomach. All these tricks sound funky and will give relief surely! 

What we take down from this conversation is;

If you think reading is boring, you're reading it wrong. Not all books are as boring as their readers are. Definitely books on sexual exploration, the journey to know more and more is thrilling. Only if you have tried it? 

Such books with colorful pages will fuel up your imagination. If you lack it, go read one. Exploring is better than regret! 

Get to know, not just about your sexual desires but let's find out something new about yourself too!
