Do down-to-earth, no-nonsense and accessible-to-the-everyman books/resources on sex and spirituality exist?

I'm currently doing a course on female sexuality and have come up hard against a wall of resistance that I know is due to being raised in a hardcore fundamentalist religion that was big on making you feel bad about all things sex (and which I only left about 5 years ago).
I have been advised to help myself get over all that negative programming by reading about sex and spirituality, how many cultures, and religions even, believe that sex is very spiritual and part of getting close to god/divine.
Problem is, all the stuff I've read about this is really New Age-y and really doesn't speak to me. The course I'm doing is run by someone very down-to-earth, no-nonsense and accessible, and it's books/websites on sex and spirituality in the same style that I feel I'd benefit from reading most.
*I've asked the teacher for recommendations and waiting to hear back from her (it's an online course)
Do books/resources like this exist?
