Publisher's Summary

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 listeners 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 boundary-less 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.

Good info, but author is close minded

Ironically, the author presents a lot of absolutes with little regard or acceptance of other people's ideas and opinions. For example, calling ancient and/or religious ideas "lies", and I am not even religious. Also, I had to double check the book description in order to make sure that it was not geared towards gay folk. But there were some tidbits that a married, straight male could apply to ideas about sex.
