SEX TALK: Uncensored Exercises for Exploring What Really Turns You On

Sex Talk: Uncensored Exercises for Exploring What Really Turns You On (New Harbinger, October, 2002) is a collaboration between Dr. Aline Zoldbrod and Lauren Dockett, an author who focuses on women, sexuality, politics and the arts and a talented writer of erotica.

While Dr. Zoldbrod provided the ideas for the exercises, Ms. Dockett penned the spicy examples. Docket’s erotica and relationship stories have been anthologized in the collections Uniform Sex and The Moment of Truth.

How would you feel if every unhealthy sexual inhibition you have suddenly disappeared? How about if a partner you’d thought had lost all desire for you unexpectedly turned to you, after a surprising and steamy session of lovemaking and said, “Baby, that is the best time I have ever had.”

Sound far fetched? You’d think. But what if it’s not? We all have the potential to be sexually free, to satisfy ourselves and our partners, and to reach pinnacles of sexual joy. Each of us has that potential, whatever our age or the status of our relationship. And the secret to realizing it is something we do every day of our lives. The secret is talk.

We’re not just referring to dirty talk. Although we will, and it’ll be fun. What we mean is no-holds-barred honest talk. Telling each other the truth in a heartfelt way about what it really takes for each of us to turn on is the ticket to a happy, healthy sex life.

Praise for Sex Talk:

“There’s a great little book that I’ve recommended before but that may have been written with you in mind. It’s called Sex Talk: Uncensored Exercises for Exploring What Really Turns You On, by Zoldbrod and Docket. It gives lots and lots of good ideas and scenarios about how to talk to your lover about sex in a way that opens and furthers the conversations, rather than shutting it down.” -Sex Talk reviewed on
