Sex in Recovery

A Meeting Between the Covers  

Jennifer Matesa (author)

ISBN: 9781616496616

Publication Date: Sep 2016

Format: Paperback

Healthy sexuality within the context of recovery is rarely talked about openly, in part because the larger culture restricts the space required to name our experiences in open, honest ways. Matesa gives us that space by bringing the language of recovery to this more hidden part of our healing, allowing us to truly “practice these principles in all our affairs”.

Healthy sexuality within the context of recovery is rarely talked about openly, in part because the larger culture restricts the space required to name our experiences in open, honest ways. Matesa gives us that space by bringing the language of recovery to this more hidden part of our healing, allowing us to truly "practice these principles in all our affairs."

An important part of the recovery journey is exploring what it means to have an intimate relationship in sobriety. Many of us have never experienced sex in a healthy relationship without being numbed out with drugs and alcohol. The concept of sober sex may seem like uncharted waters and leave you feeling like you don’t know how to swim.

In this ground-breaking book, Jennifer Matesa explores how you, as a person in recovery, can reclaim your “God-given sex powers” and experience the honest physical pleasure that fulfils your need for healthy connection and intimacy.

Through a combination of candid, affirming testimonies from people from across a wide spectrum of genders and sexual orientations, advice from professionals, and Matesa’s own insights, you will come to understand how sexual energy can be a healthy life-force that heals and provides motivation for engagement in other productive areas of life: work, family, and community.
