Doing This ONE Thing Will Change Your Life Forever! by Jacqui Olliver
This product was recommended by Jacqui Olliver from End the Problem
Her father’s suicide seemed to be a morbid ending to Jacqui Olliver’s teenage years of isolation, loneliness and not feeling wanted. Like many other experts, her life started out as a troubled teenager, working through the mental contamination associated with sexual abuse, low self-esteem, social anxiety, and depression. Emotional and intimacy issues which contaminate relationships are solved in this book along with a proven strategy for enhancing all aspects of personal connection. These insightful answers can transform an adult or teen from feeling frustrated, insecure and isolated into a happy, radiant and confident person.
Curvy Girl Sex by Elle Chase
This product was recommended by Jodie Milton from Practical Intimacy
How we feel about our bodies sexually deeply impacts how we feel about our bodies generally. This book cuts right to some of our deepest insecurities about our bodies, and empowers women of all shapes, sizes and flexibility to create a sex life that’s fun, pleasurable, sensual, creative and deeply satisfying. It makes sex inclusive for all women (and gender fluid people too) and breaks through so many of the taboos that our culture has around sex. It’s super practical too, and is packed full of tried and tested methods, positions, and sex hacks for plus-size lovers of all types, including mindsets, toys and other need-to-knows. It’s next level body-positivity, and sex positivity at its best.
Look at Me by Jennifer Egan
This product was recommended by Jack Bailey from Inwara
The thrilling story of a girl who was a model but after a tragic car accident lost all her so-called beauty, this book is a must read if you want to stand against all the beauty standards. It was one of the best reads for me by far in my life as it touches the chords of your heart you didn’t know existed and introduces you to a whole new world of self-love.
Beautiful You by Rosie Molinary
This product was recommended by Brack Nelson from Incrementors
The book is about encouraging women, whatever their size, shape, and colour, to work toward feeling wonderful about themselves despite today’s media-saturated culture through a 365-day action plan. When I read, I’ve stuck with the book so far, and I’m committed enough to finish out the year. The message of Beautiful You is extremely important for women. The authors remind us we don’t need to buy into all that negative garbage to feel good about ourselves. This book will help you build your worth. I recommend everyone to read it, regardless of gender identity.
