Product Description

In Real Sex: The Naked Truth about Chastity, Lauren Winner speaks candidly to single Christians about the difficulty and the importance of sexual chastity. With nuance and wit, she talks about her own sexual journey. Never dodging tough terms like "confession" and "sin," she grounds her discussion of chastity first and foremost in Scripture. She confronts cultural lies about sex and challenges how we talk about sex in church (newsflash: however wrong it is, premarital sex can feel liberating and enjoyable!). She argues that sex is communal rather than private, personal rather than public. Includes discussion questions.

Publisher's Description

SEX. Splashed across magazine covers, billboards, and computer screens--sex is casual, aggressive, and absolutely everywhere. And everybody's doing it, right?

In Real Sex, heralded young author Lauren F. Winner speaks candidly to Christians about the difficulty--and the importance--of sexual chastity. With honesty and wit, she talks about her struggle to live a celibate life. Never dodging tough terms like "confession" and "sin," Winner grounds her discussion of chastity first and foremost in Scripture. She confronts cultural lies about sex and challenges how we talk about sex in church. Her biblically grounded observations and suggestions will be especially valuable to unmarried Christians struggling with the sexual mania of today's culture.

Real Sex is essential reading for Christians grappling with chastity and a valuable tool for pastors.

    This review was written for Real Sex: The Naked Truth about Chastity.
    Hands down the best book on what sex is and isn't based on the bible. Very down to earth and clearly puts many of the old mindsets in the trash. This book is not just for singles. I have been married for almost 16yrs and after I read it I felt like it is one of the best books I have ever read. Excellent for everyone and deals with a most important issue!

    This review was written for Real Sex: The Naked Truth about Chastity.
    Winner's approach to chastity is honest and hard-hitting. She places sex in its biblical context and explains the importance of keeping it there while also debunking myths of the culture and the church. As a teenager who was frustrated by the seemingly unrealistic expectations of many Christian dating books, I found Real Sex to be a wonderful breath of fresh air.

    A great book if you want to know the author's view, but not so great if you want to know what the Bible says.
