1) Come as You Are by Emily Nagoski, Ph.D. (In-store only)


Imagine discovering a magical lamp in the desert. You rub it, and a genie emerges, offering you a choice: You can have infinite money, but your sex life would never improve beyond where it is. Would you take the genie up on his offer? If not, why? Is your sex life not perfect?


Well, you're not alone. But no need to despair! Your sex life might not be the best, but you can get there. You can discover how to give and receive immense pleasure between the sheets. All it takes is understanding sexuality and the myths that make your sex life more difficult.



Who would we recommend this book to?


The 22-year-old newly married man that wants to know how to satisfy his wife, the 37-year-old mother who thinks that her sex life is hopeless because she has kids and anyone that wants to understand the science of sexuality so they can have more frequent and better sex.




2) She Comes First by Dr. Ian Kerner


Do you remember your sex ed class? How inadequate, awful, and awkward was it? Most of us don't learn a thing in these classes. Whatever we figure out about our body and how it connects with another, we'll have to know in private and the hard way. As a result, many of us suffer from a less-than-great sex life.


Since school leaves us wanting, we fall for myths about great sex. For example, you don't have to have sex every time you and your partner are in bed. Foregoing sex sometimes is a key to higher pleasure when you do make love.


We can improve our bedroom skills and significantly boost our love life. It begins with learning about female sexual anatomy and how to use that knowledge. You'll discover this in Dr. Ian Kerner's bestselling book She Comes First: The Thinking Man's Guide to Pleasuring a Woman

3) Fuck Like a Goddess by Alexandra Roxo (In-store only)


What if your deepest fears and wounds were the KEY to living a turned-on and passionate life, sharing your gifts with the world, and having mind-blowing orgasms along the way? And what if you could embrace all of you―your messy, wild, raw, sensual self―exactly as you are right now AND still feel good?


"We need an uprising of bold, wild women who have reclaimed their bodies and stand in their sacred sexuality for them," Alexandra Roxo writes. "As women, we need to liberate our voices, step into total security within ourselves, and fully own our raw, sensual power, finally letting go of the shame, guilt, denial, and repression put upon us."


The methods in this book will inspire you, challenge you, bring up your resistance, and unleash your gifts. It won't always be easy, but if you do the work, you'll discover what it feels like to fuck like a goddess.

Readers learn the secret ingredient every woman is missing; how to crack the confidence code; why sex appeal is an inside job; what's ahead on the next frontier of feminism—and how they can help make it happen; and much more.


By turns earthy and erudite, passionately argued and laugh-out-loud funny, Pussy delivers the tools and practices a woman requires to do and be whatever she wants in this life. It's a call for her to tune in, turn on, and not drop out—but live more richly, thoroughly, and lusciously than she ever thought she could.
