Sexuality is a very private and personal part of our lives but lack of self-esteem and a poor body image can still affect our sexual experience. Many women find themselves subject to contradictory demands and expectations, unable to say ‘no’ clearly or inhibited from being more fully self-expressive. Equality in sexual relationships is often constrained by our dependence on the other person’s approval.
The Mirror Within is not a sex manual: the emphasis is on information and exploration and above all, it helps the reader to become more self-confident in her own sexual being. It challenges many myths and assumptions about male and female sexuality and replaces them with clear and practical information as well as offering clear guidelines for effective communication with sexual partners.
