recommended resources sex drive books

This page has ALL of our carefully collected resources to read, watch or listen to about desire.

We believe Desired State is the only place you can find this much information on female sexual desire from such a wide range of sources. 

I *so* hope that they can mean as much to you as they do to us, as they all come highly recommended. Do pop us an email if you have any questions about any of them, or if there’s anything you found useful let us know in the comments as we’d love to add it to the list!

Websites

There is a whole host of experts to follow over on the Build Your Community page, however the following are relevant to desire only:

  • Debunking Desire– a site dedicated to sharing evidence-based information about low sexual desire in women to create dialogues with women, their partners, their healthcare providers and the media.
  • UnBlush– a site for women who have hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) to ask questions and get answers. 

Films

Sexology (2016)- film

This film (if you can get past the cheesiness of it and the two presenters) is a really insightful, tender exporation of female sexuality. It follows two american women and their search to reconnect with their sex drives. Its an hour and a half- watch it alone or with the girls, some popcorn, a pinch of salt, and enjoy. For those of you who are sneaky enough to want a pirate copy, maybe you could check this page out just incase you might find a copy hiding around in there. Not that I’m condoning video piracy  or anything…..
