Sheila Wray Gregoire has written a book that is sure to bless women from all walks of life! Candidly written, full of humour, and thoroughly practical, "The Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex" is a welcome addition to the world of literature dealing with sex, love, and marriage. There are many things to appreciate about this book, from the Biblical basis that the advice and guidance is given from, to the statistics that have been woven into the pages. An especially neat addition to the book is the numerous places in the book where there are inserts entitled "A Good Girl Speaks", where regular women share their own experiences or challenges or successes. Women are likely to especially relate to what they have to say, and their voices have been seamlessly woven into the sections of the book. Gregoire offers a tremendous amount of truth in the pages of this guide, debunking many myths, and helping women come to understand how God has created their man to be a sexual being. My wife appreciated that Gregoire openly deals with many challenges woman can have in their sexual relationships, while encouraging them to view sex as a gift and to experience freedom in that relationship.
If you are seeking to have a God-honouring sex life within your marriage, then definitely plan on picking up a copy of this book! And while you're add it, get a couple for your friends as well. They will no doubt thank you. I strongly recommend this book for married women or those preparing for marriage. 4 out of 5 stars.
A review copy was received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. I was in no way compensated for this review.
I read this book before I got married. I was so impressed with it that I immediately ordered a copy for my Best Friend who is soon to be married. It answers all the pre-sex questions that I was afraid to ask (I was a virgin before I got married) without making it scary or gross.
The media, from movies to magazines, would have us believe that bad girls have all of the fun, but surveys say that the women who are most likely to enjoy sex are married and religious. In "The Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex", Sheila Wray Gregoire answers the most intimate and embarrassing questions.
Whether you are newly engaged, a newlywed or have been married for a while, you need to read this book. Chances are there is something you're mother was too embarrassed to tell you about sex. No matter how long you've been married, I'd just about guarantee Gregoire will tell you something you didn't know.
I appreciate Gregoire's bravery and boldness in talking about a subject that is avoided in Christian circles. Her book is a much needed resource for brides-to-be and a great bridal shower gift. If you are looking for something that will help your marriage and your sex life, invest in "The Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex". Your husband will be glad you did.
