I also appreciated the entire chapter devoted to creating an open mind and accepting your sexuality completely. I was tempted to skip it but it ended up really changing how I thought about sex. It banished a lot of my guilt and helped me feel freer. Siegel knows what he's talking about so I trusted his judgement.
I did have some issues with his primary case study he references: he writes of an attractive young woman, who is attracted sexually to men that are free spirited and frequently irresponsible who mimic her father. Anyway she keeps having the same problems over and over again in relationships, and Siegel perscribes that she date people more like the opposite parent: dependable and predicable. So she dates men that are stable and responsible, but that she is not ultimately that attracted to...and in the end Siegel asks her how it's going and she says "Let's put it this way: I never bore them."
Sad trombone. That doesn't sound like she was particularly fulfilled. So I was pretty skeptical of that. But the other insights I gained were invaluable. Thank you Stanley!
I LOVED this book. I felt understood by this book, I felt a path of healing from this book. I am grateful for this book.
Read this book for yourself and then your partner and your life.
If you are at a place in your life that you are able to safely handle what may awaken from your memories with this therapeutic process, then I highly recommend it.
Contrary to mainstream train of thought, sexual fantasies are a mental healing process created to balance out and or heal your mind, your spirit, and your soul. It does not matter if you are male, female, heterosexual, bisexual, gay or lesbian, the book covers them all.
This book is an easy, fun, interesting and simple easy read that will take you through the labyrinths of your mind and help you untangle past traumas, including childhood.
Enjoy it and forget about your taboo!
