Description


Offering a new take on the psychology of human sexuality, Sexpositive integrates modern day themes such as technology and the use of social media with self-help. This is the book that millennial's will turn to in order to rewrite the story of their love lives.

THE DIGITAL AGE IS USHERING IN A SEX POSITIVE REVOLUTION

Millennial disrupter Dr Kelly Neff believes radical change is underway in our love and sex lives. Fuelled by developing technology and shifting cultural beliefs, the Sex Positive movement is a social, political and philosophical wave that promotes and embraces sexuality and sexual expression, with an emphasis on safety and consent.

In this ground-breaking study of modern sexuality, Dr Kelly Neff explores this new cultural movement and examines LGBTQI issues, #MeToo, female orgasm, the rise of non-monogamous relationships and robotic sex partners, among many other contentious topics emerging as part of the ongoing social and political shifts surrounding sex, love and identity.

"Redefining sex and love as a constructive, harmonizing experience comprises a crucial part of how we move forward as a human collective... It's not a movement solely for women, but one that can apply to all genders and lifestyles. Being sex positive is inherently inclusive, and this is the tone that I take in this book."
