In his new book, “A Woman’s Pleasure,” counseling psychologist Dr. Warren Shepell uses enlightened erotica to illustrate how men can derive more pleasure from sexual relationships by ensuring their partner has the best possible experience.
“You might call my book the anti-‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ because it’s about understanding your partner’s emotional needs as well as his or her physical needs,” says Shepell, whose enlightened erotica novel is written under the pen name J.F. Kelly.
“Pornography has become an unfortunate educational tool for men, because it’s typically geared toward quickly satisfying men and the things they do to, and not exactly with, women – things women generally don’t like,” he says.
“Women enjoy sex and have as many sexual fantasies as men, and we should encourage them to drive sexual encounters and choose sexual positions as much as men do.”
The enlightened erotica adventures of “A Woman’s Pleasure” will carry readers to a new, heightened state of sexual awareness. Each of the many sexual experiences is surrounded by an aura of romance, respect and mutuality, where both women and men experience total pleasure and complete satisfaction. The real-life sensual, sexual, and lovemaking interactions in these stories will empower women to seek sexual fulfillment and show men how to make love so that women will achieve sexual satisfaction.
“Somewhere between the romance novel and the self‐help book for relationships comes J. F. Kelly’s uniquely erotic ‘A Woman’s Pleasure,’ ” writes Clarion reviewer Paige Van De Winkle. “The volume is perfect for individuals and couples wanting a fun, sexy read that also emphasizes the values underlying a fulfilling, exciting, and pleasurable sex life … In the wake of erotic novels like ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ that, according to some, depict unconventional sex as exploitative—with one partner dominating over the other without a discussion of limits, respect, or safe words—‘A Woman’s Pleasure’ refreshingly focuses on the aspects of ... sex that books like ‘Fifty Shades’ ignore.”
