ABOUT THE BOOK

Are you looking to find sexually or romantically compatible partners? Do you ever feel unsure about making a move or how to express new things you want to try? Do you wish you knew more ways to connect with yourself or your partner? Yael uses stories from her own life, as well as those from guest contributors, to illustrate methods and concepts for living a sex-positive, and sexually fulfilling, life.Part I of the intro-guide helps you develop self-awareness through an exploration of sexual identities and preferences. This awareness is good for personal development as well as to prepare you for finding compatible sexual and romantic matches while avoiding those that could lead to negative experiences. Part II concentrates on communication and consent: how to develop the tools necessary to voice your desires and boundaries while respecting those of others. Lastly, Part III provides a brief overview of ‘need to know’ material as well as recommendations for exploration and discovery.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Yael is a queer, poly, Nuyorican-Jewish sex educator who loves salsa dancing and horses. At 15 years old, she became a teen peer reproductive rights educator and never looked back. Her undergraduate thesis, "A Not so Silent Voice for Female Sexuality: Empowering Examples from Literature Cross-Culturally" and her Master's thesis, "Dismantling Rape Culture through an Exploration of Consent, Desire, and Pleasure," created space for her to explore sexuality, consent, and pleasure through different disciplines. She has since started her own company, Kaleidoscope Vibrations, LLC (KV) and is working on a collaborative body positive photo-interview series entitled Diverse Bodies Project for KV's next book.

REVIEWS

"This book is AMAZING! All of the information including terms & definitions were responsibly explained. I also felt empowered!! I loved the encouragement to explore your body and to take ownership of your sexuality. The book makes you feel safe and validated!" - Ayana

"A rare blend of vulnerable, personal truth-telling combined with real professionalism and expertise. Yael's commitment to exploring the intersection of identity, sexuality, and interpersonal relationships (her own, yours, everyone's!) makes you feel like you're talking with a friend - who just happens to also be an expert. The way Yael shares her story makes the text relatable; she then uses this comfort you've built to make you ask questions about your own assumptions and practices. This may be an Intro-Guide but many of us would do well to revisit it!" - Katherine Kolios
