A groundbreaking look at improving desire, arousal, and sexual satisfaction through mindfulness.

Studies show that approximately half of all women experience some kind of sexual difficulty at one point in their lives, with lack of interest in sex being by far the most common—and the most distressing. And when sex suffers, so do all other areas of life, including mood, self-confidence, satisfaction with one’s relationship, and general well-being.

But it doesn’t have to be that way. In Better Sex Through Mindfulness, acclaimed psychologist and sex researcher Dr. Lori Brotto offers a groundbreaking approach to improving desire, arousal, and satisfaction inside—and outside—of the bedroom. A pioneer in the use of mindfulness for treating sexual difficulties, Brotto has helped hundreds of women cultivate more exciting, fulfilling sexual experiences. In this accessible, relatable book, she takes her work out of the clinic and onto the page to provide simple, effective exercises that readers can do on their own to cultivate desire and increase sexual enjoyment. She also explores the various reasons for sexual problems, such as stress and our incessant multitasking, and tells the stories of many of the women she has treated over the years. With an eye to the latest research, she explains how mindfulness can help women feel more in tune with themselves and their partner, sense feelings in a more intense way, and experience greater sexual pleasure.

Brotto believes that satisfying sex is simply not possible without mindfulness. As she says, “Mindfulness is transformational.” This book will help you achieve your goal, whether you want to overcome a sexual difficulty or simply give your love life an extra boost.
