I’m an aro-ace therapist who’s been reading a lot of sex therapy books for my work. These books play a big role in the treatment ace and aro people get from our therapists. But if you’re ace or aro, are they inclusive of people like you? And if you’re a therapist, how do you know which books will help you work with ace or aro clients–and which ones perpetuate harmful myths?
To save you time, and hopefully make it easier to identify books that are useful or useless to you, I’ll be posting in-depth reviews of each sex therapy book I read, with both their positives and negatives, and how supportive they are for aro and/or ace folks. This post will be updated below the cut as I read more books and write reviews for them.
