“Siegel has distilled his success with such patients into a notion of “restorative sex”—the strategy of seeking a partner or partners whose complementary needs, fantasies, traumas, and expectations provide a sense of freedom to experiment. That state of attunement, he argues, “creates the awareness” necessary to move on.”The New Yorker
“Fantasy’s role in our sexuality cannot be underestimated, but in order to truly appreciate our diverse erotic reveries, we have to get rid of the judgments attached to them.Our fantasies aren’t always literal, but they are a vital and vibrant aspect of one’s sexuality. As Your Brain on Sex author Stanley Siegel writes.” The Guardian

“After speaking with Stanley and studying his book about how our subconscious tries to heal our troubled past, I felt like my whole life came into focus. The understanding has again transformed both my sexual response, but also I now have the language to express it. Truly, our sexuality is a locked box that holds the keys to our deepest healing. The keys are living in you as your sexual fantasies, just turn them on and see for yourself. “ Hitched Magazine
