Did you read that post title? Yes, it says what you think it says. Are you blushing yet? I was just a tiny bit when my 16-year-old daughter was reading my Kindle book list over my shoulder and saw the title.
Her: Um, is that what that’s about?
Me: Um, yes.
Her: Okay, then. I’m going downstairs. I don’t need to know about your personal business.
I was caught off-guard, so it wasn’t until later that I thought to explain to her that this wasn’t just some random book about…you know…that, but that it’s a book about intimacy in marriage by a Christian author.
You see, the world has taken something that God created to be a beautiful source of physical, emotional, and spiritual intimacy between a married man and woman and has twisted it into something cheap and often considered “dirty” or “ugly.” Author Sheila Gregoire wants to help us take it back.
If you’ve read Sheila’s blog, To Love, Honor and Vacuum, you know that she regularly speaks very openly about marital intimacy from a Biblical standpoint.
The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex isn’t for the faint of heart. Sheila very candidly tackles a subject that is so often tip-toed around and answers questions that would make your pastor blush. However, it’s all done from the absolutely correct point-of-view that sex is something God created for husbands and wives to enjoy together.
“Do bad girls really have more fun? Surveys say no. The women who are most likely to enjoy sex are married and religious. In other words, they’re Good Girls!
But good girls know that making sex great isn’t about acting trashy. It’s about recognizing what God really designed sex for, and then learning how to reap all these benefits and joyfully enjoy your husband.
Frank and contemporary, The Good Girls’ Guide to Great Sex will give the newly engaged and new brides—and some veteran wives—a Christian resource to answer their most intimate, and embarrassing, questions.
In a conversational style, with lots of humorous anecdotes, the book will show that sex isn’t just physical: it’s also an emotional and spiritual experience. And we’ll learn why commitment in a Christian marriage is the perfect recipe for a sex life which is out of this world!”
There is a section just for those women just entering marriage relationship, straightforwardly answering questions that many women would be embarrassed to ask their mothers.
Sheila also tackles common problems – those of both men and women – that affect a couple’s physical relationship and offers insight on how to overcome them. She sheds light on the question of what is acceptable in the Christian marriage bed, while cautioning against allowing the world’s clouded view of sex to overshadow the physical, emotional, and spiritual intimacy it was intended to bring to your marriage.
I really appreciated the valuable insight offered in Sheila’s book. Even after 20 years of marriage, I learned some things about myself that surprised me. No, I’m not going to tell you what they were, but I feel like this book has opened my eyes to some areas where I had unknowingly built some walls between my husband and myself.
So, whether you’ve been married a few weeks or a few decades, I think you’ll find something in The Good Girl’s Guide to Great Sex that will improve the intimacy in your marriage relationship.
