Next to personal finances, sex is one of the most dreaded conversation topics for many couples. It’s personal, which makes it feel intrusive and possibly embarrassing, but good sex evolves from the ability to communicate each partner’s wants and needs. While there is no book that can magically make a non-communicative couple begin to open up, the books below are at least good places to start for anyone looking to improve their sex life. Plus, whether you have a partner or not, these books can help you start the journey of being more open to talking about sex.

 

1. Great in Bed by Debby Herbenick and Grant Stoddard

Two well-known and esteemed sex experts have collaborated to create this book that will inspire not only open communication, but passionate conversation that expresses desire in order to “Thrill the body [and] blow the mind.” There may not be any earth-shattering sexual epiphanies, but the book’s simplicity makes it a great choice if you’re just starting to delve into the world of open sexual communication.

4. The Book of Questions: Love and Sex by Gregory Stock

While this book was first printed in 1989, it still holds relevancy today with diverse questions you can ask your lover to reach a new level of intimacy. You’ll need to be prepared, though, to confront tough questions like, “If you could spend one night with anyone in the world you desired, but only by getting permission from your partner, would you ask for it?” Be warned, this is definitely a book to work through after you’ve covered more basic communication.
