Sex for One
By Betty Dodson, Ph.D.
A book that touts the benefits of masturbation
Sex for One is one of the most comprehensive books on masturbation ever written. If you're learning to love your body and its response to pleasure, this book is an essential read.
Confronting one of our last and most deeply rooted taboos—masturbation—noted sex expert and pro-sex feminist Betty Dodson, Ph.D., takes the shame out of selflove by creating a straightforward and appealing guidebook that reveals masturbation as a satisfying, vital form of sexual expression.
Dr. Dodson demonstrates how anyone can learn to make love alone without feelings of guilt or loneliness, and explains why masturbation is sexually and spiritually fulfilling for both men and women. Not only is it the safest sex, but sharing masturbation can also be an erotic treat for couples who want to learn more about each other's sexual responses.
With warmth and intelligence, Sex for One demonstrates that selfloving is not just for times in-between lovers or for social misfits.
