Format: Paperback
"Incest and Sexuality" sympathetically and incisevely explores the effects of incest on survivors and offers both they and their intimate partners a great deal of information on ways to get past the abuse. The work deals with a wide range of incestuous circumstances, and either a survivor or one itimately involved with a survivor should find the book well worth the read.

The title is misleading, because this book offers far more comprehensive informations than just sexual issues survivors of incest may have. Easy reading, it gives the most info in less time about how survivors of incest think, and why we sometimes behave the way we do. I am a survivor who has read just about everything on incest, trauma and recovery, but this is the book I recommend most often to friends who say they really want to get it. Other books are more universally recognized as standards. When I've tossed out all my books on abuse, Incest and Sexuality will still be on my shelf.

I ordered this book to help understand the ordeal that someone close to me went through. The book mostly covers father/daughter incest, and explains the manipulations and coercions placed on the victims, as well as the many, many lasting consequences that the survivors of this horrific betrayal have to live with. It provides clear insight into the coping mechanisms that survivors use, as well as the suffering they endure daily once they have been victimized.

However, I have to rate it at only four stars, as the book only mainly discusses father/daughter incest, and doesn't really give time to discussing the various other forms of incest and predation that exist. Male victims, or female victims who were manipulated not by their father but by an older sibling, may need additional resources. A brief discussion on same-sex abuse is covered, but not really in depth, so survivors of those types of encounters may also need additional resources.

All in all, a good resource to being to understand and start the healing process, but the book itself advices, and I must add, counseling is crucial.

A great book that is VERY well written. It details the secrets of incest that no one wants to talk about. Especially, the perpetrators and those that allowed the abuse to occur. I recommend this book for survivors as well as those that want to begin to understand the pain and wounds that incest leaves behind.
