The Joy of Comfortable Sex   ~   Click Here to Purchase

This is a book that I recommend to anyone who has chronic pain, back injuries, arthritis, obesity, or other conditions that decrease mobility and flexibility. The Joy of Comfortable Sex was written by an Osteopathic Physician who has for 25 years treated people with medications, physical therapy and manipulation for chronic neck and back pain among other disabilities.

Dr. Angier covers lots of great ideas for treating pain, handling dryness, being mindful, playing games, having fun, enjoying erotica, using toys, and having “outercourse” instead of having penetration. He also illustrates specific positions such as spooning, Image removed by sender.cowgirl, leapfrog, scissor legs and others that require less mobility and allow for greater comfort and more pleasure. Even if you don’t suffer from arthritis or disc disease, this book has lots of awesome ideas to put some spice and fun into your sex life. Happy reading!

Thanks to my friend Julie for introducing me to this book.
