About the Book

This book is about the erotic power of the breast to improve our sex lives and enhance our health. Breast sex is unique to humans. It is not practiced by other species, and because of its uniqueness, it deserves special consideration. The breast has been, from the beginning of human culture, important to our sexuality, enabling deep intimacy. With breast sex, woman began to extend to her mate the same love that she extends to her child, and mates began to live together, bringing about the human family. Not only sex but health is also improved with breast functionality. Dr. Timothy G. C. Murrell, a family medicine physician from Australia, investigated how using the breast sexually might result in expelling carcinogens from the body. Related to this, studies have shown that breastfeeding reduces the risk of breast cancer. Alice Rossi, PhD, discusses the relationship between sexuality and maternity and how oxytocin, known as the love hormone or the bonding hormone, arises in the body with both breast sex and breastfeeding and contributes to our pleasure and our health. Breast sexuality is common to everyday life in many different cultures of the world, and a myriad of related practices are recounted here from Africa, Asia, Europe, Australia, and North and South America. Breast sex is popular around the globe because it enables ease of sexual satisfaction for women, overcoming a problem that many women acknowledge. This book tells the story!
