BOOKS ARE SEXY: Author Jodi Ambrose

by Cyrus Webb

Are you ready to talk about sex and relationships? Well, Sex-pert and author Jodi Ambrose is just the person you want to have a conversation with!

Now before you turn the page of this magazine or click on another article in the issue, let me explain why this is a profile you will benefit from. Anyone who has been in a relationship knows how important it is to feel validated or understood. It was during a conversation with a friend on Facebook that Jodi Ambrose shared some tips with a male friend on how he could help improve his relationship with women. After trying some of the tips---and seeing the results---he encouraged her to write a book. Since then she has written two: SEX: How To Get More Of It (for men) and INTIMACY: How To Get More Of It (for women).

Jodi was gracious enough to be a guest of my on Conversations LIVE and shared where her desire to help others originated. "When I was growing up I tended to be friends with alot of guys," she told my listeners. This led her to listening and absorbing a great deal of what was being said. She now uses her tips to assist others in their relationships and provide a platform for growth and new beginnings among couples.

I was curious if she had any reservations about writing about sex. She told me the answer was Yes and No. There was a part of her that knew the information needed to get out there and she was the one to do it. Then there was the other part that thought about her family, co-workers and friends. At the end of the day, however, she made the decision that all individuals who embrace their inner greatness do: "Sometimes you have to step up and get out of your comfort zone and do what you know needs to be done," she said. Though she acknowledges that it's not always easy, she knows it is "worth the battle."

Don't let the titles of the books fool you. I realized pretty quickly that sex was only a part of what Jodi was conveying. The important element was really communication. "I want people to know that it's not only okay to talk about how you feel but that their feelings have validity." Jodi also says that the information in her books help to create a healthy, safe environment where both parties know that they matter." A great story that she shared on the air was about a friend who felt like their twenty-plus year marriage was over. Jodi gave her a book and the end result was the husband was able to acknowledge over time that he had forgotten about his wife. Needless to say, there was no divorce, and the two are experiencing a resurgence in their relationship.
