If we are being honest there are a whole host of questions that women have in regards to love, sex and intimacy. That goes for single women or married woman, younger ladies or older. We live in a society were some things on the topic that need to be discussed are over looked and avoided like the plague where other areas are publicized and create false ideas of reality. That’s why I was quite curious about the book Dr. Juli Slattery wrote, “25 Questions You’re Afraid To Ask About Love, Sex and Intimacy”.
Some of the questions that stuck out to me when looking at the table of contents were:
- Can I be single and sexual?
- And I waited for this?
- What if I want sex more than my husband does?
- Is ___ okay in the bedroom?
- How can I compete with porn?
- What if I don’t like sex?
- How do I make time to make love?
These questions, plus additional ones, are things I have often wondered or have seen other women seeking the answers to. I appreciated how Dr. Slattery address women as a whole instead of single or married. She stresses what we are already told in the Bible and backs it up with scripture.
The book is designed where you can skip around and read the chapter in whatever order you prefer. As I read the chapters I felt like her words were those of a favorite aunt or mentor who you can be completely open and honest with and who will tell you the truth even if it hurts a little.
My favorite quote from the book about marriage is this:
Expect marriage to be a tremendous gift, but one that will require work and commitment. Expect that no matter who you marry, your concept of love will be redefined. Expect that by leaning on the Lord, you will have everything you need to be a great wife. -pg 106
If you are honest with yourself, do you wonder about some of those questions above? Or other things in regards to love, sex and intimacy? If so you will for sure want to read “25 Questions You’re Afraid To Ask About Love, Sex and Intimacy”!
