Great Sexpectations: Change Your Perspective and Have the Sex You Really Want

Front Cover
TRIGGER Press, Jul 2, 2020 - Family & Relationships - 200 pages

We live in a hyper sexualised society. Porn, nudes, dates and hook-ups are easy to come by for anyone with an internet connection. Just like fast food, sex has become quick and convenient to obtain, perfect looking, but void of any true nourishment. Is it any wonder we are having sex and intimacy problems?

With biased and unrealistic portrayals of sex everywhere we turn, it is hard to form healthy expectations of sex. And when, inevitably, our 'sexpectations' are not met, our mental health, sexual wellbeing, self-esteem and relationships suffer.

Clinical psychologist and sex therapist, Gemma Cribb and award-winning sex journalist, James Findlay will help you explore your own 'Great Sexpectations' and guide you through simple exercises to help you correct unhelpful beliefs and discover your authentic sexual self so that you can enjoy truly fulfilling relationship and sexual experiences.

Great Sexpectations is for every gender, every sexual orientation and every type of sexual relationship. It is for people with sexual functioning difficulties, libido problems, sex addiction, gender or sexual confusion, intimacy problems, dating dramas, body image insecurity, or sexual relationship problems. It is for everyone who thinks life is too short for bad sex.
