Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A first-time examination of sexual anorexia, an extreme fear of sexual intimacy and obsessive avoidance of sex, by the acknowledged leader in the treatment of compulsive sexual behavior and recovery.

Author Dr. Patrick Carnes begins by defining sexual anorexia and demonstrating how it and its parallel disorder, sexual addiction and compulsivity, often arise from a background of childhood sexual trauma, neglect, and other forms of abuse, Carnes explores the numerous dimensions of sexual health, examining key issues which must be addressed and resolved for recovery to proceed. Utilizing extensive research and elucidating case studies, Carnes develops concrete tasks and plans for restoring nurturing and sensuality, building fulfilling relationships, exploring intimacy, and creating healthy sexuality. Woven throughout the book are stories of recovery which illustrate sexual healing principles, model new behavior, and support motivation for change.Sexual Anorexia enables those suffering from this disorder to recognize that sex need not be a furtive enemy to be fought and defeated but, instead, a deeply sensual, passionate, fulfilling, and spiritual experience that all human beings are innately entitled to.

Patrick Carnes, Ph.D., the best-selling author of Out of the Shadows and Contrary to Love, is an internationally known speaker and writer on sexual dysfunction and recovery. He is currently Clinical Director of Sexual Disorders at The Meadows, a treatment facility that works with clients who deal with a wide range of behavior disorders, addiction, and psychological conditions.

Synopsis:

Sexual anorexia is a fear of sexual intimacy and an obsessive avoidance of sex. The author explores how sexual anorexia and sexual addiction are different sides of the same coin, often arising from childhood trauma and other forms of abuse and neglect.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 387-389) and index.

The title hits the spot exactly for both sexual issues and debt issues (when the word sex is substituted with the word money or career.) Great title!
