25 Questions You’re Afraid to Ask About Love, Sex and Intimacy is about, well, 25 questions. It is written to be read either straight through and reading all the questions or so that you can just skip around to the questions you actually have. It is written towards women but the questions are not segregated by if you are single or married. The author of the book is often refered to as the “Christian Dr Ruth” and while she may not like that nickname – keep that in mind when you are reading if you are not Christian as the advice given may not be exactly what you are looking for.
The author does talk a bit about how talking about cohabitation, erotica, masturbation and homosexuality may ruffle some feathers. The author takes a moral stand within the perspectives offered because she believes God designed sexuality and He knows a lot more about it than anyone else.
Each of the 25 questions is a chapter in this book, and it clocks in at just over 200 pages. Read it the whole way through or just pick and choose what topics you are interested in, I think you’ll learn something or at least gain a new perspective.
I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review, I was not otherwise compensated.
About this Book
Whether you are married or single, having great sex or no sex, your sexuality is inseparable from your spirituality.
Many Christian women are confused and even devastated by the area of sexuality. In the silence of the church, they are left to sort through harrowing experiences like sexual abuse, exposure to porn, raging temptation, homosexual thoughts, and betrayal in marriage-all on their own.
Having nowhere to go to ask the hard questions about sexuality can be spiritually dangerous. Women need the truth.
In 25 Questions You’re Afraid to Ask About Love, Sex, and Intimacy, Dr. Juli Slattery addresses some of the most common questions women have on sexuality from a biblical perspective, such as:
What if I don’t like sex?If I’m single, how far is too far?Is ______ok in the bedroom? How do I get past my shame?What if I want sex more than my husband does?
These are the type of questions that thousands of women have been asking Dr. Slattery. She answers them with rare candor, grace, and wisdom.
We desperately need God’s perspective on sexuality. And fortunately, the Bible has a lot to say on the topic. Some of it might surprise you.
