Publisher's Description

A study on sex that goes beyond "just don't do it."

Sexuality is a hot topic these days, and opinions are all over the place. A resource offering simple "do’s and don’ts" won’t cut it. Sex and the Single Girl fills the gap by providing a broader, more comprehensive understanding of what it means to honor God with our sexuality. This resource will equip single women to understand their sexuality, trust the Lord for redemption and healing, and stand against the cultural trends that marginalize and compromise God’s design for sex.

Juli Slattery is a clinical psychologist, cofounder of Authentic Intimacy, and author of several popular books, including 25 Questions You’re Afraid to Ask About Love, Sex, and Intimacy. She has devoted the last five years to equipping women with God’s truth about sexuality, and here she drives home the truth that every sexual choice is also a spiritual choice.

The six-week study is broken down into five days for each week, covering:

  • Why Sexuality Matters: The connection between spirituality and sexuality
  • Embracing a Grand Design: God’s design and the beauty of living according to His wisdom.
  • Sexuality and Your Character: How sexuality is part of worship and Christian identity.
  • Sexual Boundaries: A very practical chapter providing a biblical grid for matters like masturbation, oral sex, and how far is too far to go in a dating relationship.
  • Battling Temptation: A peak at "the enemy’s playbook," helping women anticipate, prepare for, and stand against sexual temptation.
  • Restoring Intimacy with God: How God can tear down the wall of sexual sin, shame, and confusion through forgiveness and redemption.

This study has been tested through pilot groups with college women and other 20somethings. Revised according to their feedback, it is primed and ready to help any single woman think biblically about sexuality, live accordingly, and experience the joy and freedom of doing so.

Sex and the Single Girl is especially relevant today. One of the greatest threats to the modern church and emerging adults is the distortion of sexual design. Study after study has documented the proliferation of porn use (among both men and women), sexual exploitation on college campuses, experimentation with homosexuality and bi-sexuality, and the acceptability of multiple sexual partners. The average single Christian has received very little teaching on the purpose of sexuality, and a simple "just wait until you’re married" approach won’t cut it. Christian singles need to be equipped with a biblical worldview of sexuality and practical tools for talking it out.

This study, which Slattery created with two women familiar with curriculum development, is ideal for college campuses and small groups. It will prompt discussions on practical topics like sexual temptation, sexual conduct, and responding to cultural thinking on gender issues and sexual autonomy. It is designed to challenge women to examine the assumptions underlying their sexual behaviors and beliefs. The ultimate goal of this resource is to introduce women to an intimate relationship with God who cares about every aspect of her life.

    This review was written for Sex and the Single Girl.
    Filled with Biblical wisdom, this book is packed with lots of good information. Dr. Juli Slattery gets right to the heart of the issue: is Jesus Lord of your life-including your love life? Is His love enough for you? Sex and the Single Girl is from a trustworthy source that help get women to discuss and work through issues involving sexuality and spirituality. An amazing bible study that doesn't shy away from issues single women in our culture face today.

    Sex and the Single Girl is a 6-week study with 5 days of reading that include quizzes and journaling exercises that are biblically grounded. Going through this book has really helped me realize that you're never alone in your personal struggles, and that sex isn't taboo. I love the quote, "Marriage and sexuality were always intended to teach us about intimacy wtih God."-Dr. Juli Slattery.

    Though this book is written for a young single women, I don't think that age really matter. I personally feel that any single women can benifit from the book, regardless of their background.

    I recieved this book from the publisher is exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.

    This review was written for Sex and the Single Girl.
    I'm so glad I chose this workbook for review! This a 6-week study on a topic Christians tend to shy away from but is in dire need of being addressed. This book was exclusively written for the single girl. Dr. Slattery touches on very important topics about sex that many young girls struggle with: premarital sex, masturbation, pornography, sexual fantasies among others. With much love and patience, Dr. Slattery gently guides the student through misconceptions many girls have about sex.

    Each week consists of 5 days of material. Every week is based on a topic and every day has a short reading portion with some real short stories from other young women, and then some questions for self -reflection and meditation. The topics covered are: Why Sexuality Matters, Embracing a Grand Design, Sexuality and Your Character, Sexual Boundaries, Battling Temptation, Restoring Intimacy with God. This workbook can either be done alone or in a group.

    Going through this book has made me realize that you're never alone in your personal struggles. Sex doesn't have to be taboo nor shameful to talk about. In Sex and the Single Girl, you will find yourself discovering lies you believed all your life and how to handle pain, confusion, or anger brought from experiences. Dr. Slattery has done an amazing job of lending Scriptural advice with love and grace, never condemnation. I recommend this study to ALL single girls, whether you struggle with lust, masturbation, pornography, premarital sex, or none at all. This study is for you.

    I received a copy of this book from Moody Publishers in exchange for an honest review. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own.
