Sexual worries fuel multi-billion dollar industries dedicated to making us look a certain way (cosmetics, fitness, hygiene and clothing) and live up to an almost unattainable standard (performance-enhancing drugs, herbs, and stimulants). When we fail to reach these goals, we turn to counseling, sex therapy, psychoanalysis - and self-help books. Doctor Rich Blonna says, "Average, healthy men and women don't need to spend money on sexual products or the industries that spawn them. Everything they need to enjoy sex and have a satisfying and stimulating sexual life exists within them. They only need to learn how to unleash the power of their sexual minds." Acceptance Commitment Therapy - a values-based form of therapy - can do just that. ACT is designed to help people examine their thoughts, emotions, personal scripts and mental images to see if these concepts are helpful or unhelpful in living the sexual life they desire, based on their values and goals. Although developed as a form of psychotherapy, ACT principles and practices are now used for many issues ranging from stress to eating disorders - and they're a perfect fit for sexual concerns. For people who already have satisfying and meaningful sex lives, ACT can help fine-tune their sexual thinking and increase satisfaction to even higher levels.Along with having fun, Sex ACT involves introspection, learning new information and skills, having faith, coexisting with troubling sexual thoughts and emotions, and making a commitment to live a values-based sexual life. The quest outlined within the pages of Sex ACT becomes a spiritual journey, going beyond the self to help readers connect with their partners in a deeper, more honest, and intimate way.
