Ecstasy is Necessary: A Practical Guide
In her new book, "Ecstasy is Necessary", Barbara Carrellas presents the ways in which we can experience our 'authentic sexual selves' and feelings of ecstasy as part of our day-to-day lives. She discusses the ways in which people experience ecstasy, mainly through sexual experiences, but also includes information on cultivating ecstatic non-sexual experiences. Carrellas believes that experiencing ecstasy can help us to get in touch with ourselves on a deeper level, as well as foster greater self-confidence and intimacy in our relationships with other people. Topics include: boundaries, safer sex, erotic risk-taking, and how to connect with your 'authentic sexual self'.
"Barbara Carrellas is a true visionary. This book will give you the tools to create a bolder, more authentic, and satisfying sex life, but it goes much deeper: it's a road map for living a fuller, more conscious, and joyful life."
- Tristan Taormino, author of Opening Up: A Guide to Creating and Sustaining Open Relationships
"This book is essential reading for anybody trying to attain new levels of intimacy and intensity, not only in their sex lives but in their lives as a whole."
- Janet W. Hardy, co-author of Radical Ecstasy and The Ethical Slut
