sexual intelligence2. “Sexual Intelligence” by Marty Klein, PhD

If you’re looking for a funny, no-nonsense guide to great sex, look no further. Dr. Klein is a couples’ therapist with several decades of experience and a great sense of humor. In this classic book, he lays out the theory of sexual intelligence and teaches couples how to “create the sex that can’t fail.”

beyond satisfied3. “Beyond Satisfied” by Kenneth Play

He calls himself a sex hacker, and rightfully so. Kenneth doesn’t have a degree in sex therapy, but he knows how to please a woman. What started out as a quest to overcome sexual insecurities turned into a journey of exploration that led him to become a leading sexpert.

mating in captivity5. “Mating in Captivity” by Esther Perel

When romantic dates are replaced with the monotony of life or the demands of parenting, desire fades. Couples’ therapist Esther Perel examines why we lose libido in long-term relationships and offers inspiration on how to get the spark back.

Why We Love It

Perel has a way with words that makes her books a pleasure to read. Her language is sophisticated and vivid yet easy to follow. She’s a keen observer of American culture and points out how some of its most-valued ideals can be damaging to our sexuality.

urban tantra6. “Urban Tantra” by Barbara Carrellas

This is a guidebook written for the often-skeptical people of the West looking to deepen intimacy through the Eastern philosophy of tantra. There’s a great section on sensual massage that can help your lover experience next-level orgasms. You’ll find instructions for vulva and penis owners, so everyone will find something of interest.

Why We Love It

What do you do when your partner suggests they want a spiritual connection in the bedroom? Before you panic and start imagining yourself dancing around in hippie clothes, burning incense, and chanting “ohm,” read this book. It gives you concrete exercises to try in the bedroom plus an introduction to tantra that isn’t too esoteric.

naked at our age7. “Naked at Our Age: Talking Out Loud About Senior Sex” by Joan Price

If you’re nearing (or past) retirement age, you may feel like there’s nothing out there about great sex later in life. We rarely see mature bodies and sensuality in romantic films or magazines. This book breaks the taboo of senior sexuality and gives you concrete tips on how to have a fantastic time in bed at any age.

Why We Love It

The author devotes two chapters to erectile dysfunction, including one from a woman’s perspective. Reading this will give you hope that you can have pleasure (and satisfy your partner) even when your erections are not as reliable as before. There are true stories of men who use Viagra to prove that ED treatments are not as scary as you might think.

different loving8. “Different Loving: The World of Sexual Dominance and Submission” by William Brame, Gloria Brame, and Jon Jacobs

Tired of missionary-style sex every Saturday night? This book will inspire you to explore intimacy beyond the norm. You’ll learn about fetishes and BDSM practices. A word of warning: Some descriptions may be surprising, even shocking to some. Try to keep an open mind and remember that those who enjoy these practices are all consenting adults.

Why We Love It

This book is not afraid to discuss sexual taboos, and it does so in a warm, human tone. Its strength lies in the stories of real people. If your partner has an unusual sexual preference, reading these accounts may give you a better understanding and prompt productive (and even sexy!) discussion.
