A groundbreaking guide to sexuality that dispels the stale cultural attitudes about sex that leave too many feeling inadequate, and offers an expansive, attachment-based framework to free us and develop bolder, more satisfying relationships with our sexual selves.

When it comes to sex, most people feel insecure. But it’s not because we’re deficient; it’s because we’ve been under-resourced and miseducated.      

Certified sex therapist Casey Tanner argues that our sex lives are a microcosm of every untruth we’ve internalized about gender, sex, relationships, our bodies, and ourselves. Most of us were taught that healthy sexuality is only for a certain kind of person, in a certain kind of relationship, with a certain kind of body. As a result, the way we’ve learned how to define “good sex” is reflective of how good, worthy, and loveable we see ourselves.

Feel It All is a comprehensive guide to help everyone uncover their personal misconceptions about sexuality and relationships. Tanner helps you recognize and assess your core beliefs surrounding relationships, sexuality, gender, and more; identify past trauma; find pathways to healing that work for you; and redefine sex based on knowledge and possibilities, rather than potential consequences.

Comprehensive yet accessible, informative, warm, and nonjudgmental, Feel It All provides a pathway for personal healing, creating stronger relationships, and achieving deeper intimacy.

Casey Tanner (she/they) is a Certified Sex Therapist living in Brooklyn, New York with her three cats. When Casey’s initial pursuit of a career in evangelical ministry was disrupted by a mental health crisis, she was forced to reckon with the harmful impact of purity culture on her sexuality. Casey has since made it her mission to disrupt barriers to authenticity by founding The Expansive Group, a sex therapy practice serving over 1,000 clients annually. Casey consults for businesses, healthcare agencies, and universities around the world, her expertise appearing in Oprah, Health, Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, and InStyle. Casey was awarded as the American Association of Sexuality, Counseling and Education’s “Rising Star” in 2023.
