Reviews
"This is not only an accessible, gentle-hearted guide to a still-taboo topic; it's a fascinating exploration of how our most intimate connections cannot just endure but thrive."--ELLE

"Every couple I see in therapy comes in with cultural myths and misperceptions about sex that get in the way of the connection they desire. Emily Nagoski gifts us with an illuminating, relatable, and often funny book that completely reframes how we think about sex in long-term relationships. Come Together is a game-changer and should be required reading for every couple who wants to reimagine what great sex can look like."--Lori Gottlieb, New York Times bestselling author of Maybe You Should Talk to Someone and co-host of the Dear Therapists podcast

"Come Together is a revelation! It gives us the permission to redefine intimacy on our terms through engaging storytelling and science. It's time we replace shame and obligation with exploration and pleasure. A must read!"--Eve Rodsky, New York Times bestselling author of Fair Play

"Come Together is wise and deeply comforting. Once again, Emily Nagoski is dismantling myths about sexuality and giving everyone permission to discover what is already true and love what they discover."--Angela Chen, author of Ace: What Asexuality Reveals About Desire, Society, and the Meaning of Sex

"The blend of science and storytelling that Nagoski's readers expect is on full display throughout this affirming, inclusive guide, which has the potential to transform readers' sex lives and their general well-being. . . . An essential purchase."--Library Journal (starred review)

"Empowering and pragmatic . . . Nagoski's prose is spry and inviting as she marshals research and anecdotes (many featuring nonbinary couples) to dispel notions of 'normal' sex, ban sexual expectations and judgments, and advocate 'liv[ing] with confidence and joy' in one's body. It's a valuable resource for anyone looking to spruce up a subpar sex life or make a good one better."--Publishers Weekly

"Come Together
is an inclu­sive, good-humored, and reassuring book that offers something for every couple in a long-term relationship."--BookPage
