As a sexologist, I have a bookcase full of sex-related books that I regularly re-read for inspiration and education. Reading is a fantastic way to self-educate, which is essential if you want a plentiful and pleasurable sex life. If you’re in a relationship, reading about sex can open up a healthy discussion about sex with your partner, and is a sure fire way to spice up your sex life. If you’re single, there is no better time than now to begin empowering yourself as a sexual being. Reading about sex is bound to attract amazing sexual experiences into your life, and there’s nothing better than a well educated and confident lover!
The following is a list of 4 books that have something for everyone. I can almost guarantee that if you read them you will learn something new and feel inspired to live a life full of amazing and plentiful sex.
#1 Women On Top - Nancy Friday
This ground-breaking bestseller changed my life as a young woman. Women On Top is about the erotic imaginations of women from all over the world. The concept of women as well-behaved ‘nice girls’ is challenged and the book instead reveals a myriad of sexual fantasies, written by real life women. I guarantee this book will deliver some wonderful new ideas and is very inclusive of the LGBT community.
#2 Wild Nights - David Deida
Wild Nights is the tale of a spiritual man, Mykonos, who reveals his erotic path to the divine. This book was a life-changer for me as it opened my mind to the possibility of sex being the path to ecstasy. Deida very eloquently writes about hard-core sex and spirituality as one, he even turns the concept of group sex into a spiritual practice!

Confronting the taboo topic of masturbation, sex expert Betty Dodson take the shame out of self-love by demonstrating how any women can learn to self pleasure without shame and guilt. This is a must-read for any woman who wants to learn more about how to increase their capacity for self-pleasure and orgasm.
