The Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex by Shelia Wray Gregoire - REVEIWED

About the Book: (from Zondervan)
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, this unabridged audio download of The Good Girls’ Guide to Great Sex will give the newly engaged and new brides—and some veteran wives—a Christian place to turn 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!

My Thoughts:
" Part of seeing sex in its proper light and getting rid of any shame we may feel about it is inviting God in." (Gregoire)

Every single couple considering marriage should read this book. Every marriage that is struggling with a differnce in the level of libido should read this book. This is the most insightful, carefully researched, tenderly written book about sex I have ever read. Gregoire doesn't shy away from subjects as complex as porn addiction and abuse, or subjects as common as who should initiate sex and what appeals to men and women in the bedroom.

This is a seriously needed book for today's Christian couples. This subject is skipped over, skirted and brushed under the rug far too often. Marriages will be challenged and transformed by the wisdom in this book. I am happy to recommend this to everyone considering marriage or who is married and needs an avenue to discuss what is often a tender subject.
