Getting It: A Guide to Hot, Healthy Hookups and Shame-Free Sex

We rated this book:


Most of us have been taught for our whole lives some degree of shame regarding sexual pleasure. Whether it was the extreme of abstinence-only sex ed, the idea that sex should only happen in committed relationships, or even that some sex is okay but being a slut is bad, we’ve all got our hang-ups. But should we?

Author and sex educator Allison Moon wants everyone to know that sex is a physical need like any other, and for those who want to, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with seeking it casually. Getting It: A Guide to Hot, Healthy Hookups and Shame-Free Sex is her adult sex-ed guide to all things casual sex. The book covers all the things about casual relationships and hooking up that you may have never known how to ask about, such as flirting, consent, safety, gender identity, and post-sex communication.

Readers will also be inspired to think about themselves and what they are truly hoping to get out of such connections, and the book features many thoughts and questions on how to both find and give true physical pleasure. It’s time to move past backwards ideas of what sex should be and instead think of what you want sex to be for you.
