Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on the author's extensive training and experience in working with abuse survivors, The Survivor's Guide to Sex offers an affirming, sex-positive approach to recovery from incest and rape. While most books on the topic broach sexuality only to reassure women that it is alright to say "no" to unwanted sex, this one encourages women to learn how to say "yes" to their own desires and on their own terms.

Points of discussion include problems common to women survivors. Haines teaches survivors to embrace their own sexual choices and preferences, learn about their own sexual response cycles, and heal through masturbation, sexual fantasy, and play. The Survivor's Guide to Sex includes resources, bibliography, and an index.

Synopsis:

An encouraging, sex-positive guide for women who have survived sexual assault. Bibliography & index. Illustrations.

The Survivor's Guide to Sex is one of the best and most honest resources for survivors ready to delve into their sexualities. It is very open to all types of preferences and sexual play without being overbearing or intrusive, important for survivors who may feel threatened by sex. An excellent point Staci Haines makes is that you do not need a partner to heal sexually. Again, sexual healing takes time, but this is a very helpful tool. It has stayed at my bedside since I purchased it. A word of warning for those who are just starting their journey of healing: if you find ths book too intense for now, try reading the Courage to Heal by Ellen Bass and Laura Davis.
