Who's Been Sleeping in Your Head: The Secret World of Sexual Fantasies

Brett Kahr


Based at the largest-ever survey of sexual fantasies, and drawing at the author’s twenty-five years of medical perform, this “anatomy of mystery hope” does for sexual myth what Kinsey did for sexual habit. although, not like Kinsey’s books, that have been nearly unreadably dense and data-driven, Who’s Been dozing on your Head? positive aspects narrative money owed of sexual fantasies and the author’s personal insightful interpretations of the way these fantasies impact our lives. Kahr finds the marvelous fact at the back of secrecy, disgrace and taboo, and demonstrates how intercourse fantasies exert a extra strong impression on our feelings, habit, and relationships than we ever imagined. Kahr’s insights are freeing. He tells us the tale of Margaret, who, in mining early sexual abuse for arousing and enjoyable sexual fantasies: “succeeded brilliantly in turning a early life trauma into an grownup triumph.” He explains how he helped a tender guy who couldn’t get grew to become on via his attractive female friend yet in basic terms by way of dominatrix-themed porn, and the way quite a few women and men used myth to turn into extra intimate with their partners-or to be untrue or perhaps merciless to them as an alternative. finally, through unmasking the myths and destroying the guilt and lack of knowledge surrounding sexual delusion, Kahr bargains readers an opportunity to steer richer and no more conflicted lives.
