Recommended Reading & Resources

To understand sex means to understand yourself; to understand yourself requires literacy. It’s not just that books provide information that teaches you who you are. It’s that experiencing books helps us establish inner reality at the same time. This is a partial reading list that will introduce you to some key ideas that help you both understand sexuality and help you establish interior space. Some are internet resources.
