Brentwood - Sunday, February 16th at 3:00 pm - Dr. Alexandra Solomon in conversation with August McLaughlin signs and discusses "Taking Sexy Back" and Girl Boner Podcast live recording


Join us on Sunday, February 16th at 3:00 pm as we welcome Dr. Alexandra Solomon to the store to discuss and sign Taking Sexy Back: How to Own Your Sexuality and Create the Relationships You Want! Joining her in conversation will be fellow author August McLaughlin.

This event will also be a live recording of an episode of the Girl Boner Radio podcast.

Taking Sexy Back acknowledges that the very notion of sexual pleasure has long been hijacked from women. Today’s sexual climate leaves little to no space for honoring the complexities of sex -- sex as pleasure, sex as connection, sex as creative expression, sex as communication, and sex as healing. This is particularly true for young women navigating today’s dating world, who need to be able to identify which sexual choices feel authentic, pleasurable, and joyful, and which ones leave them feeling “less-than.”

In Taking Sexy Back, relationship expert Alexandra Solomon -- author of Loving Bravely -- offers a powerful and holistic approach to help reclaim readers' sexuality, communicate their desires, draw boundaries, be safe, and build the satisfying relationships they truly want. Regardless of their current relationship status, they’ll learn to cultivate their own sexual self-awareness and use that awareness to create sexual experiences that elevate, connect, expand, and heal them.


Girl Boner Radio is a spicy blend of personal stories, in-depth reporting and inspiration, Girl Boner is where good girls go for sexual empowerment. Health and sexuality writer August McLaughlin explores female sexual pleasure like no one else. She’s the fearless sister/girlfriend you’ve always wanted -- and she loves to talk sex! Girl Boner Radio is LGBTQIA-friendly and all genders are welcome.


Dr. Alexandra H. Solomon is a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Psychology at Northwestern University and a licensed clinical psychologist at The Family Institute at Northwestern University. She maintains a psychotherapy practice for individual adults and couples, teaches and trains marriage and family therapy graduate students, and teaches the internationally renowned undergraduate course, “Building Loving and Lasting Relationships: Marriage 101.” In addition to writing articles and chapters for leading academic journals and books in the field of marriage and family, she is the author of the book Loving Bravely: Twenty Lessons of Self-Discovery to Help You Get the Love You Want
