Cleis Press Start, 28. nóv. 2007 - 320 síđur
The first encouraging, sex-positive guide for all women survivors of sexual assault -- heterosexual, bisexual, lesbian, coupled, and single -- who want to reclaim their sex lives. While most books on the topic broach sexuality only to reassure women that it is all right to say "no" to unwanted sex, Healing Sex encourages women to learn how to say "yes" -- to their own desires and on their own terms.

Her techniques are ideal for anyone looking for a new way to heal from trauma, beyond traditional talk therapy.
