Book Description

June 20, 2013 1771430761 978-1771430760 2

Readers say Dr. Gloria Brame has changed their lives. Find out why in SEX FOR GROWN-UPS. The ultimate sex-positive adult primer, SEX FOR GROWN-UPS, takes a delightfully original and upbeat approach to sex based on three simple rules--that human sexual behavior is complicated, that sex and gender diversity are normal, and that all adults can have pleasurable sex. In a radical departure from institutionalized theories about what sex should be, Brame explains the facts about what sex actually is, and shows you how to use this information to improve your sex life and relationships. Drawing on sex history, scientific data, sex studies, medical studies, and stories from her private practice, SEX FOR GROWN-UPS gives you sex education you never knew you needed and will always be grateful you received.

The Truth About Sex, A Sex Primer for the 21st Century
Volume 2: Sex for Grown-Ups by
 Dr. Gloria G. Brame

Review by Robert Rubel, Ph.D. (Dr. Bob)

As the author of: [...], I can tell you with certainty, Dr. Brame has done it again and written another book filled with great, concise summaries/conclusions about what sex is and is not for "Grown-Ups". Her book is a must-read for those of us who intellectualize sex - her phrase. I recognize how vital it is to have a clear understanding of your partners (or partners) sexual needs and how important it is to have a healthy, diverse, and fulfilling sex life: a healthy sex life fosters relationship stability and improves your personal wellbeing.

Dr. Brame's book explains that sex is experiential, not intellectual, and that you should be seeking a relationship that affirms all partners' needs. She describes how your sex life should include enough variety to keep both partners excited - and then provides some ideas about what "variety" might look like for you. She also cautions that you and your partner should maintain a shared or compatible sexual self-identity that includes compatible sexual personalities. In the end, for a healthy, sexually compatible relationship, Dr. Brame notes that all sexually-involved parties should be satisfied with whatever sexual path you take.

Here are some highlights concerning sexual stability in a relationship, taken from The Truth About Sex, A Sex Primer for the 21st Century Volume 2: Sex for Grown-Ups by
 Dr. Gloria G. Brame stresses these points:

* If you can't be emotionally naked, if you can't tell your sex partner your secrets, if you're too angry to tolerate each other, the chances of a fulfilling sex life are virtually nil.

5.0 out of 5 stars The new book!! July 5, 2013
By Jambi
Format:Paperback
Gloria Brame's latest book, "The Truth About Sex, A Sex Primer For The 21st
Century Volume II: Sex For Grown-Ups," is yet another stunning victory, both
for Dr. Brame, and for anyone who reads it. One of her many strengths is
that as a therapist, she writes for everyone: the seasoned kink scene
player, the "vanilla" sexual person just curious about variations in sex and
techniques, or anyone in between. In her books, there is no "too-cool"
person, waiting at the door to show you out---only a warm, intelligent and
knowledgeable person to welcome you in: Dr. Brame. Her major point in this
particular book is this: deviation from "the norm" is the new normal. Our
sexual definitions heretofore were decided wrongly from the Victorian age
and repeated and preached badly for years, until now. She strives to make
knowledge-seeking people aware of this, to cut down the barriers to free and
healthy thinking about all things sexual, and to make people aware of the
real health benefits of good sex and masturbation. This is a page-turner!
There are dungeons and drag queens here, sure, but there is much more. Treat
yourself to Gloria's Mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars You Totally Need A Sex Make-Over! July 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I was luckily provided with an author's copy of this book to review. Now, thank your sex life that I was there to help.

My deflowering sucked. I mean, I wish I could give you some magical, romantic tale about it. But, it was an eye-opening experience that really made me question the whole idea of having sexual intercourse. It wasn't until my mid-20's, following the birth of my child, that I really felt sexually liberated. Imagine a bunch of strangers staring at your naughty bits, seeing you secrete bodily fluids that only ooze out in your bathroom. After that, I thought there was nothing to be ashamed of. Childbirth definitely gave me a freedom that counteracted the cultural and religious ideologies I'd been taught growing up in the South. And, I felt confident that at some point I'd meet someone who shared the same values. Then, the 30's happened.

I began to think I was some freak of nature who was cursed in the intimacy department. But this book, this wonderful manual of all things sex-amazing, changed this. I won't go into my kinks, whether I like spankings, or my preferred gender of love. But, I will tell you that this book made me feel good. How often do you read something that makes you feel good about sexual choices you've made past, present, and future? Me? Not often. Hey, born-again Christian here. I was taught there was happiness--Sodom and Gomorrah happiness. And then there's Hell--where all the harlots and Jezebels who want non-traditional sex that doesn't lead to procreation go to burn. Jezebel Hell. I'm practical enough to know that I'm going to no such place. But if I did, I am now comforted that I wouldn't be alone. Ha ha ha! I'm just kidding.

Dr. Brame is so freaking awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Should be required reading ! August 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I’ve been a fan of Dr. Brame since her first book, Different Loving. What I love about her writing is that she has an unusual ability to take difficult and embarrassing subjects and put them in terms that help me to understand them better and see why and how other people feel the way they do about sex. In her newest book, she tackles subjects I’ve never even heard anyone talking about, and always wondered about, like why some couples seem to be so sexually compatible and why other people seem to spend their whole lives looking for happiness they never find. Her sections on BDSM were really enlightening to me and I found myself saying “that explains it!” again and again. The book made me think about sex in so many new ways that I know it’s a book I’ll read again and again, getting something new from it every time. Her seven stages of kink development was amazing. I hope she sells a lot of copies of this book! I think it’ll change the life of everyone who reads it. I feel like it already changed mine.
