Sextrology

Sextrology

$22.99
More Info

Picking up where Linda Goodman's Love Signs never dared to go, here is an original, smart, and provocative approach to evaluating sexual identities that will once again have people asking, "What's your sign?"

In sophisticated, uninhibited language, Sextrology candidly explores each sign of the zodiac, male and female, through a unique, wholly original astro-sexual philosophy. In this highly entertaining and illuminating romp from inside the head to inside the jeans, the authors uncover the naked truth behind each of the 24 gender signs. With nary a trace of new age mumbo jumbo, they explore each sign's personal psychology, physical attributes, and sexual behavior in titillating detail--straight, gay, and beyond.

From fantasies to favorite positions, erogenous zones to emotional needs, Sextrology will help you better understand your and others' sexual character, improve your understanding of relationships, and find out what to expect from a new person in your life. No stone is left unturned in this intelligent and enlightening investigation of sex and the sexes.

Sexual Fluidity: Understanding Women's Love and Desire

Sexual Fluidity: Understanding Women's Love and Desire

$17.95
More Info
Is love "blind" when it comes to gender? For women, it just might be. This unsettling and original book offers a radical new understanding of the context-dependent nature of female sexuality. Lisa M. Diamond argues that for some women, love and desire are not rigidly heterosexual or homosexual but fluid, changing as women move through the stages of life, various social groups, and, most important, different love relationships. This perspective clashes with traditional views of sexual orientation as a stable and fixed trait. But that view is based on research conducted almost entirely on men. Diamond is the first to study a large group of women over time. She has tracked one hundred women for more than ten years as they have emerged from adolescence into adulthood. She summarizes their experiences and reviews research ranging from the psychology of love to the biology of sex differences. Sexual Fluidity offers moving first-person accounts of women falling in and out of love with men or women at different times in their lives. For some, gender becomes irrelevant: "I fall in love with the person, not the gender," say some respondents. Sexual Fluidity offers a new understanding of women's sexuality--and of the central importance of love.

    Should I Stay or Should I Go: Surviving a Relationship with a Narcissist

    Should I Stay or Should I Go: Surviving a Relationship with a Narcissist

    $16.00
    More Info
    How do you know if you are in a relationship with a narcissist--and what can you do about it?

    Narcissism is a modern epidemic--and it's spreading rapidly. Narcissists tend to be pretty on the outside, but empty on the inside. While they are often successful, they are also controlling, manipulative, entitled, vain, and they have no empathy. If your significant other can be charismatic and charming one moment and leave you feeling disappointed, unsettled, and doubting yourself the next, you may be involved with a narcissist. This dangerous relationship can slowly ruin your sense of well-being and ultimately your psychological health. Sometimes leaving is the healthiest option. But sometimes it doesn't feel like an option, and you may have powerful reasons for staying--for your children, financial security, religious beliefs, or simply because you are in love.

    In Should I Stay or Should I Go? Dr. Ramani Durvasula gives you the tools to help you stop making the same mistakes. It shows you what to watch for and provides guidance on managing difficult situations. This honest survival manual is based on the real terrain of pathological narcissism and it provides a realistic roadmap of how to navigate this landscape and reclaim your true self, find healing and live an authentic and empowered life. Whether you stay--or go.

    Sibling Effect

    Sibling Effect

    $26.95
    More Info
    A senior writer at "Time" magazine explores what scientists and researchers are discovering about sibling bonds, the longest- lasting relationships we have in our lives.

    Nobody affects us as deeply as our brothers and sisters-not parents, not children, not friends. From the time we-and they-are born, our siblings are our collaborators and co-conspirators, our role models and cautionary tales. They teach us how to resolve conflicts and how not to, how to conduct friendships and when to walk away. Our siblings are the only people we know who truly qualify as partners for life.

    In this groundbreaking book, renowned science writer Jeffrey Kluger explores the complex world of siblings in a way that is equal parts science, psychology, sociology, and memoir. Based heavily on new and emerging research, "The Sibling Effect" examines birth order, twin studies, genetic encoding of behavioral traits, emotional disorders and their effects on-and effects from-sibling relationships, and much more.

    With his signature insight and humor, Kluger takes big ideas about siblings and turns them into smart, accessible writing that will help anyone understand the importance of siblings in our lives.

    Packed with research, insights, and illuminating (and often funny) examples from Paris's own divorce experience, this book is a "practical and reassuring guide to parting well." --Gretchen Rubin, author of The Happiness Project

    Engaging and revolutionary, filled with wit, searing honesty, and intimate interviews, Splitopia is a call for a saner, more civil kind of divorce. As Paris reveals, divorce has improved dramatically in recent decades due to changes in laws and family structures, advances in psychology and child development, and a new understanding of the importance of the father. Positive psychology expert and author of Happier, Tal Ben-Shahar, writes that Paris's "personal insights, stories, and research" create "a smart and interesting guide that can be extremely helpful for those going through divorce."

    Reading this book can be the difference between an expensive, ugly battle and a decent divorce, between children sucked under by conflict or happy, healthy kids. This is "a compelling case that it's high time for a new definition of Happily Ever After--for everyone" (Brigid Schulte, author of Overwhelmed: Work, Love, and Play When No One Has the Time).

    Steven Petrow's Complete Gay and Lesbian Manners: The Definitive Guide to LGBT Life

    $17.95
    More Info
    A big book of manners for the more than 15 million lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the United States and Canada and the people who love them, work with them, and live with them. Written by Steven Petrow, the go-to authority on the subject--he's the same-sex wedding expert at The New York Times and a columnist for The Huffington Post, Yahoo's Shine, GayWeddings.com, and the "Q" Syndicate (with distribution to more than 100 LGBT newspapers and websites)--this is the definitive book of LGBT etiquette.

    Encyclopedic in its approach, filled with practical wisdom, lively wit, and much insight, Steven Petrow's Complete Gay & Lesbian Manners covers everything: from coming out to being out in the workplace; from dealing with the joy and complexity of same-sex weddings and commitment ceremonies (including how to propose and write meaningful vows) to handling the legal paperwork every couple needs. There's a chapter on sex etiquette, and another on the challenges and opportunities of raising a family, plus sections on travel, bullying, entertaining, meeting new friends, introducing your partner to your family, a primer on gay pride, and so much more.

    Throughout there are hundreds of questions--some posed by LGBT folk, and others by straight people: What do the mothers of two brides wear to a lesbian wedding? What do you say to an anti-gay joke? How do you answer "Who's the father?" when there are two mothers?

    Manners, yes, but with a twist.

    Story of Sex

    Story of Sex

    The first graphic history of sex chronicles sexuality and human intimacy through the ages, from our primate pasts to our robotic futures.

    Humans have had sex on the brain since pre-civilization either for pleasure, power, revenge, a desire for children, or simply because it isn't allowed. Today, sex is all around us but it's rarely explained and almost never taught. In The Story of Sex, sexologist Phillipe Brenot combines anthropology, sociology, psychology and history with witty comics by Latetita Coryn for an in-depth explanation of this essential aspect of humanity.

    Organized chronologically into sections like Babylon: Free Love, The Middle Ages: Heaven and Hell, and The 20th Century: Sexual Liberation, Brenot explores what eroticism really is, how our ancestors behaved sexually, when the first couple was established, how superstition and morality laws shaped sexuality, the use of pornography in the digital age, and how some ancient civilizations were far ahead of their time when it came to gender equality.

    Full of fascinating details like Cleopatra's invention of the vibrator and a Dutch shopkeeper's accidental discovery of the existence of sperm--all accompanied by hilarious comics and dialogue -- The Story of Sex is informative, unique, and entertaining book.

    Swoon

    Swoon

    $15.95
    More Info
    Contrary to popular myth and dogma, the men who consistently beguile women belie the familiar stereotypes: satanic rake, alpha stud, slick player, Mr. Nice, or big-money mogul. As Betsy Prioleau, author of Seductress, points out in this surprising, insightful study, legendary ladies' men are a different, complex species altogether, often without looks or money. They fit no known template and possess a cache of powerful erotic secrets.

    With wit and erudition, Prioleau cuts through the cultural lore and reveals who these master lovers really are and the arts they practice to enswoon women. What she discovers is revolutionary. Using evidence from science, popular culture, fiction, anthropology, and history, and from interviews with colorful real-world ladykillers, Prioleau finds that great seducers share a constellation of unusual traits.

    While these men run the gamut, they radiate joie de vivre, intensity, and sex appeal; above all, they adore women. They listen, praise, amuse, and delight, and they know their way around the bedroom. And they've finessed the hardest part: locking in and revving desire. Women never tire of these fascinators and often, like Casanova's conquests, remain besotted for life.

    Finally, Prioleau takes stock of the contemporary culture and asks: where are the Casanovas of today? After a critique of the twenty-first-century sexual malaise--the gulf between the sexes and women's record discontent--she compellingly argues that society needs ladies' men more than ever. Groundbreaking and provocative, Swoon is underpinned with sharp analysis, brilliant research, and served up with seductive verve.

    Have you been traumatized by infidelity?

    The phrase broken heart belies the real trauma behind the all-too-common occurrence of infidelity.

    Anna David's True Tales of Lust and Love began as a one-time-only reading and storytelling show in January of 2012, a venue for writers and comedians to share and laugh at their dating disaster stories. But after selling out the venue and attracting immediate press and buzz--with articles in The LA Weekly, LA Times, Time Out, Flavorpill, and LAist, among others--David agreed to produce the show every month. It has continued not only to sell out but also to attract a growing list of authors, comedians, and Hollywood writers. As Time Out declared, "This is the place to go to see strong female performers."

    With the show now booked indefinitely, and with audio recordings of each performance available on iTunes, Anna has collected the most popular and entertaining pieces into the first ever True Tales of Lust and Love anthology. The book includes essays organized into three sections--Casual Sex, Dating, and Out of the Ordinary--which collectively offer up funny, raucous, insightful, and surprisingly touching confessions about the quest for lust and love. Everyone has dating disaster stories, everyone needs to share and laugh at them, and this anthology will give readers the opportunity to do just that, with contributions from the funniest writers and comedians around, pulled from the world of books, TV, and film. True Tales of Lust and Love is the perfect complement for a funny or cynical Valentine's Day--and beyond.

    While sex is a natural and innate part of being human, few of us were raised with the freedom to express this important and natural part of ourselves. Deep down many of us experience a vast discrepancy between what we're taught we should feel about sex and how we actually feel. Despite an intense sexual imagery reflected in our media and entertainment, mixed societal messages have created a divergence from our sexual nature and our freedom to express it. Human beings are born ripe for pleasure.

    The body is a vehicle through which one can experience ecstatic states far greater than many may know or imagine. Tapping into this inherent part of ourselves has many benefits. By embracing your own potent sexual energy, you will not only experience sexual satisfaction, but other amazing benefits. Your creative juices will flow, and you'll feel like a more vibrant version of yourself. It will radiate outward into all areas of your life because sexual energy is creative, joyful, and fulfilling. Embracing your innate sexual energy is an important component of living your highest life potential.

    Many of the practices outlined in the book are thousands of years old--tried and true methods experienced by many people over centuries, including teachings from the Tantric texts. The wisdom contained by these incredible texts offer ways of looking at and approaching our world to lead the most fulfilling and abundant lifestyle imaginable.

    US, a collection of fascinating love stories from across America, as told to the oral historian John Bowe

    From the wards of New Orleans to the cornfields of Iowa to the slopes of Colorado, from the raves of Los Angeles to the hollows of Appalachia and the canyons of Wall Street, Americans talk about love. Tortured teenagers, free-spirited octogenarians, anxious Navy wives, blue-blooded bohemians, horny-but-chaste pastors, and multiply-partnered cosmopolitans tell extraordinary tales of broken hearts; sexual infidelities; improbable reconciliations; hidden, forbidden, preposterous love; and endurance against all odds.

    These are America's real love stories--wise and foolish, comic and tragic, full of surprises and straight from the heart.
