    Comments about Babeland Healing Sex:

    This is a great book for anyone who has experienced sexual trauma or wants to support someone who has been through it. This book specifically addresses victims of childhood sexual abuse, but a lot of this information could still help someone who has had sexual trauma in their adult life, too. This book explores the physical manifestations of trauma, and the importance of somatic experiencing to regain comfort and agency in your body. It might be a bit basic for those well-educated on trauma, but it can still offer a lot of support. If you need help getting back in touch with your body after an assault, Healing Sex offers lots of thought-provoking ideas and personal anecdotes from other survivors to guide you.

        I found this book useful & interesting as a survivor of sexual trauma. I learned a lot about what triggers are, how they work, and how you can respond to them in ways that are healing rather than re-traumatizing or immobilizing. Be gentle with yourself when reading this book, as it does go into pretty detailed discussions of sexual abuse & assault. Definitely an intense read, but opened my eyes to some of my emotional patterns in productive ways.

          Comments about Babeland Healing Sex:

          I think this is a fantastic book. Very supportive language and has lots of anecdotes from survivors throughout the book. I like that the writer really puts the focus on empowering you to make the decision that feels right for you, right now; it's made clear that if you want to make different decisions for yourself down the line, the door is open. Also, there's a chapter on BDSM, which I find particularly fabulous; it's often a tricky topic for survivors, and I thought it was handled very well. I bought this for a friend too, and we both found it helpful.

          Changed my life

          By cyclesperfecta

          from USA

          Comments about Babeland Healing Sex:

          I cannot recommend this book enough. I found it honest, articulate, comforting and profoundly insightful. It named so many of the things I experience that I didn't understand and was scared by, and in addition to that, it helped me feel compassion for these parts of myself. Basically this book resulted in a profound self awakening. I found it not just incredibly useful in understanding my sexuality but also (and so importantly!) it encourages you to seek out positive sexual experiences and discover (or rediscover) your own needs and desires - which is why I'm on babeland looking at vibrators right now. :) Even though I read it several years ago I keep my copy handy and refer back to it when I'm finding it hard to maintain boundaries or am feeling triggered by something. Sex is still complicated, but with this book I feel like my sexuality is mine to explore, appreciate and delight in. As a side note if you are just starting to work through your trauma I would recommend pacing yourself and reading it slowly. I spent two months just processing the feelings I had from the first chapter. Also, there is an awesome chapter for partners of survivors to read, my boyfriend found it really useful, and it helped him understand what I was going through.

          Portable Support Group

          By Kynky Kytty

          from Canada

          Comments about Babeland Healing Sex:

          The goal of healing sex is to find means to help sexually traumatized women become sexually empowered. Written by a lecturer, reading the book feels like being in a support group, which may be good for someone who starts the healing process from scratch. But it may not be appreciated by someone who has been through most of the healing already and wants to simply feel better about the past or come to terms with a sexual assault (like me). The content is very good, sexually informative, helpful and covers a lot of topics, but it should have been edited more to fix idea organization and remove some repetitions, whether lexical or in terms of content across chapters.
