Publisher Description

We all carry sexual shame. Whether we grew up in the repressive purity culture of American Evangelical Christianity or not, we've all been taught in subtle and not-so-subtle ways that sex (outside of very specific contexts) is immoral and taboo. Psychotherapist Matthias Roberts helps readers overcome their shame around sex by overcoming three unhealthy coping mechanisms we use to manage that shame.

Beyond Shame encourages each of us to determine our own definition of healthy sex, while avoiding the ditches of boundaryless sex positivity on the one hand and strict moralistic boundaries on the other. Define your sexual values on your own terms, overcome your shame, and start having great, healthy sex.

LS😬 ,

Decent, just wish I hadn’t spent as much...

I came across this after seeing another GR member’s TBR list and it sparked my interest. Initially I was a little put off on the frequent Bible references. Mostly because I have my own views regarding this matter. However, it was interesting and the author made some great points.

I wished he would’ve spent more time on “embracing shame”, especially since the entire book is about moving beyond shame. I understand his perspective on not wanting to provide concrete suggestions- as sex and sexuality is not a “one size fits all.”

Either way I’m happy I read it. More than likely I would recommend to clients specifically those impacted by the purity culture.
