I was really worried about my two boys entering the world of sexual availability. It seems that today free sex is everywhere and that does not feel good at all. I saw this book and thought I would give it a go. I am so glad that I did. Written in an easy format that is difficult to put down once started. I could not believe how direct, appropriate and honest this book is. It gets to the bones of what is causing us problems in today's society. One of the best purchases I have done and feel that a lot of pressure and worry and been eliminated from me. I can now help the boys to be, and maintain being, authentic.
I am a mom of 3 boys and 1 girl. My son tried porn as a freshman in high school (now getting married), then found out my husband was watching as well. I was sexually abused as a child and felt great betrail when this came crashing into my life. My second son has also been into porn on the enternet, introduced to it in the locker rooms at school. My youngest boy a 7th grader has already had friends show him nude photos on their phones. My husband has given his life to Christ and has done an about face away from this temptation. We have started reading this book together as a family and I am amazed at it's reality. I pray that God will guide our study every night, and He has. The conversation and words no longer seem filthy, but we are able to talk about it openly. I feel God's hands in it all and I am very blessed to have this available to help our family. I recommend it to ALL! There is not a soul on this earth that shouldn't read this book. We are going to read "Every Young Girls battle" after this one.
I didn't do enough research on the book and gave it to my son who is 13. BIG, BIG mistake. He was not ready and due to the graphic nature of the book, actually learned how to masturbate because of the book. Completely worked against what I was trying to prepare him for, being sexually pure. I got rid of the book, its not in my home anymore. For someone older I think it would be fine. Wish I had read through it more before handing it over, huge mistake on my part. Now i get to deal with the consequences. I honestly don't understand the point of being so graphic with the stories. The same point can be made leaving that out. Very disappointed by that content in the book.
