I Love Sex, I Love Myself by Lavender Jones M.D.
Unmasking Sexual Depression, Healing and Winning the Battle Within. Free Yourself from Yourself, by Loving Yourself!
A personal message from the author:
The reason for me writing this book is because of sexual PTSD, Trauma, sexual abuse, or sexual assault. It's no fun being trapped within yourself due to the cause of someone else's doing. People today are looking for an outlet to fix themselves without being confronted with negative actions or remarks from others. I walked many paths over the years. From listening to others, groups, and family members I never really got advice, help that was clear and beneficial. I had to learn everything on my own due to insufficient teaching as a child. Over time I learned that a lot of my problems came from trusting myself or judgments against myself. I had to figure this out on my own cause it was truly hard to accept anyone in my life new or old. Today, I am in a better position with myself and my loved ones after being open and truthful with myself. So I wrote this book hoping to reach others in similar situations.
