In a culture that defines achievement in terms of the workplace and the family, and that judges women's worth by superficial standards of beauty, sexuality is often overlooked as an essential piece of women's power. Many women realize they want more sexually but don't know how to get it. Based on her sought-after workshops for women, Amy Jo Goddard lays out her holistic, inside-out approach to sexual empowerment--one that examines sexuality not only in terms of what happens in the bedroom but through a lens of personal power and the erotic energy that is at our core. In Woman on Fire, she reveals how to elevate our sexual intelligence by mastering the nine Elements of a Sexually Empowered Life. Including stories from the thousands of women she has worked with, Goddard shares how to get (back) in touch with desire, explore vulnerability, and push the boundaries of what we think is acceptable. We will have not just better sex, but also more pleasure throughout life, more power in our work, and more deeply connected relationships. And we will discover what Goddard always reminds the women she works with: The more whole we are as sexual beings, the more fulfilled we are as human beings.
Wonderful sex does more than melt both body and soul; it brings power, energy, and deep satisfaction to all aspects of our lives. In this unique book, women who consider themselves highly sexually responsive talk in intimate detail about what gives them the greatest pleasure. They redefine sex based on how women really experience sexual pleasure confirming what every woman knows instinctively, while creating a new language that every woman will understand.
A twenty-two-year-old perennial virgin, Englishman Grant Stoddard didn't know what to do with his life in America--until he won an X-rated online contest, the prize being intercourse with an infamous married sex columnist. He consequently wound up delivering mail at Nerve.com but accidentally found his calling as a gonzo sex reporter who would try any and every lurid activity his crafty coworkers devised--from offering himself up as man-bait at a hard-core gay bar to attending an elite orgy, to being a hapless participant in a sexual home invasion--all the while wishing he could be safely tucked in bed.
Working Stiff is the humble, hilarious, and delightfully salacious fish-into-water story of a young man who followed his heart--and other organs--into places where few would dare to venture.
"When bad sex happens to good people, there is no recourse like full disclosure," is the motto of Worst Laid Plans, a collection of forty probably-too-intimate, but shockingly funny, true-life tales of lust gone wrong. The stories are divided into themed sections including Foreign Affairs ("When bad sex goes abroad"), Self-Help ("Love thyself...but do it carefully"), On the Rebound ("The art of getting back in-and-out-there"), Mob Mentality (People will do things in groups they would never do alone"), and The End of Innocence ("A memorial to virginity") among others. The book evolved out of a storytelling event originally staged at Upright Citizen Brigade, the highly influential comedy organization co-founded by Amy Poehler, who along with Janeane Garofalo and SNL's Casey Wilson, performed at the show that continues today. Part Vagina Monologues, part car crash, and wholly hilarious, the volume features contributions from shameless actors, comedians, and writers who will shamelessly spread the word via blogs, on-line videos, tweets, on-going WLP performances, film/TV/media contacts, and further sexual conquests."
