Did you know that graham crackers and corn flakes were developed as a cure for sexual behavior?? I didn’t either until I read The Truth about Sex,
a book written by Gloria G. Brame Ph.D. This book is the first in a planned three volume set that will give adults the basic tools to have a happy and fulfilling sex life. Brame makes the point in the book saying that the choices that people make are sometime lousy and that can affect how they not only feel about themselves or about their relationships. Brame goes on to say in her book that there is no perfect ideal for a person’s sex life. As long as it does not interfere or disrupt their interaction with others or makes withdraw from society, it is okay. Basically what she is saying is that what one person may like another may be offended by. She is saying that variety is normal and natural. There is no set formula for the perfect relationship.
This book is broken up into two sections. The first section deals with arousal. This is where I found that gem about the graham crackers and corn flakes. The second section deals with how we think about sex. Basically in this section she addresses how talking about sex is taboo and that until we can openly talk about sex in our society that the emotional well being of a person can not be fully attained.
This book was very refreshing to read. I have to admit I was scared at first to read it. When I first got it, I thought what I have gotten myself into. But I am glad to say I was pleasantly surprised by how refreshing and new outlook Brame gives to the subject.
I like how she said that what may work for one person may not work for another. There is no right or wrong way to have a perfect relationship; it depends on the people in that relationship. She also mentions in her book that far too many times that people are afraid to talk to their partners about what they want and need. I can so see that one. All in all I was greatly surprised by this groundbreaking book. I am looking forward to reading the next two volumes.
I received this book free from the publisher through a marketing company. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
