The Good Girls Guide to Great Sex
why yes, you did read that right. i am reviewing a sex book this week. don't worry, it's not scandalous. it's a Christian book written by a Christian writer, blogger and speaker, Sheila Gregoire. her blog (to love, honor and vacuum) is one of my favs.
often times when we are growing up (at least when i was) sex wasn't discussed further than "don't do it until you're married". which really leaves quite a few questions unanswered. this book will answer every. single. one. of those questions and more.
sheila herself said..."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 to joyfully enjoy your husband."
if you are preparing for marriage, virgin or non-virgin, this book is for you. if you are a newlywed wife, this book is for you. and if you've been married for a little bit or a long bit, this book is for you. if your sex life seems ho hum and needs some spicing up, this book is also for you.
i understand that we live in an over-sexualized society and that basically everywhere we look it's in our face. and i understand the need for discreetness, but at some point direct honesty is needed and helpful. this book is super straight forward. so if you're looking for something that isn't direct and beats around the bush, this book isn't for you. she starts is out with how you think about, view and understand sex. after that she gets right to the nuts and bolts of it. i'm fairly sure this book would answer every single question a girl would have before she gets married. actually i'm positive it would answer every question. every single one.
this book has a super biblical approach and i love that about it. she doesn't just say "don't do it" or "this is okay to do", she gives you reasoning and logic behind it. she tells you why the particular act is or is not acceptable in God's eyes and then lets you make your own decision.
have you ever wondered what God's view on certain things were, but had no idea who to ask without sounding like a freak? surely i'm not the only one. well, sheila answered them all in this book. lingerie? libido? role-playing? all of those, and much more, are answered in this book.
this is a great book that i would deffo recommend. it's a fun, informative and easy read.
out for now
