Kirkus Reviews calls Erotic Integrity “A bold, refreshing call to discover and own one’s sexuality.”
Do you ever wonder:
- How to make your sex life better?
- If your sexuality is normal?
- If you can have what you want?
- How you can feel desirable again?
In Erotic Integrity, Dr. Claudia Six leads readers through ten sexual themes including garden-variety performance anxiety, sexual boredom, newly dating, coming out, and more and reveals three simple steps to a more rewarding sex life: knowing who you truly are as a sexual being, embracing that knowledge, and living it authentically. Frankly presented and illustrated with candid case studies, these steps can be applied by individuals and couples of all ages and sexual orientations, with or without children. Based on Dr. Six’s twenty-five years experience as a clinical sexologist, this straightforward guide skillfully challenges readers to self-examine, self-accept, and self-actualize for a more fulfilling sense of eroticism, to feel more confident in bed…and in life.

This book will calm the secret fears of even casual readers, as Six speaks with authority, compassion, and humor: “The term ‘sex addiction’ has been popularized, overused, and misapplied to anyone engaging in sexual behavior that someone else disapproves of.” She’s also critical of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders and clearly explains how and why she thinks it’s inaccurate in certain cases. Overall, she’s emphatic that no obstacle is insurmountable, that no honestly confessed desire is shameful, and that no one need follow anyone else’s choices. Sexuality, she emphasizes, takes place in the heart and in the head—as well as elsewhere. A bold, refreshing call to discover and own one’s sexuality.
What people are saying about Erotic Integrity
“I just finished your book, and had to tell you how much I loved it! Your voice and personality come through so clearly in your writing– and you did just the right amount of self-disclosure– it was like getting to know you better. Just the sort of easy, intimate tone that clients need for looking at their sexual stuff.
I really liked the structure, both of the book as a whole, with chapters for each issue so readers know right where to go, but also within each chapter. The erotic discovery, acceptance, integrity formulation felt very CBT to me (in a good way).
I know you wrote it for clients, but this is also an awesome book for therapists. Each chapter gives a useful formulation of the issue and a sort of treatment plan. I’m already using some of your lingo in session. Most important, though, is the hopeful, nonjudgmental tone which makes it perfect for clients.
It may take a while, but once word gets around, I think this will be a classic in the field. Telling all my CBT people!”
