Sexual Anorexia is a first-time examination of the extreme fear of sexual intimacy and obsessive avoidance of sex, by the acknowledged leader in the treatment of compulsive sexual behavior and recovery. Author Dr. Patrick Carnes defines sexual anorexia, explores its origins in childhood abuse or sexual trauma, and examines the numerous dimensions of sexual health and which must be addressed and resolved for recovery to proceed. Utilizing extensive research and case studies, Carnes develops concrete tasks and plans for restoring sensuality, building fulfilling relationships, exploring intimacy, and creating healthy sexuality. Woven throughout the book are stories of recovery which illustrate sexual healing principles, model new behavior, and support motivation for change. Sexual Anorexia enables those suffering from this disorder to recognize that sex need not be a furtive enemy to be fought and defeated but, instead, a deeply sensual, passionate, fulfilling, and spiritual experience that all human beings are innately entitled to.
