For over a century, Christians treated marital sex as something shameful. Women, in particular, were not supposed to enjoy it. Now, Christians are beginning to appreciate God’s plan. This is currently a hot topic and is being covered by ABC News and Time Magazine., among other news sources...
When we needed this information, there was nothing on the market like our book (there still is not another). Christian oriented books are too spiritual to discuss techniques; books that discuss techniques are usually distinctly non-Christian and often promote dangerous practices. Our goal is to glorify God and give practical guidance.
My wife, Anita, and I have written a Guide to Sex for Christian Couples. The target audience is married Christian couples.
The chapters are: God Created Sex, Sex is Good for You, Talk to Each Other, Male Sexual Anatomy, Female Sexual Anatomy (because most women have never really looked and both sexes fail to understand the beauty of God's design), Hormones (including the amazing love hormone), Masturbation, Foreplay, Oral Sex, Intercourse, Problems (psychological and disease), Toys, Birth Control, Pregnancy, Infidelity, and (my favorite) Bad Ideas.
I am a recent graduate of Liberty University, earning the MA in Human Relations. Prior to that, I was a paramedic for 21 years. My wife, Anita, was a Psychiatric Registered Nurse for 20 years.
I have had articles published in The Fireside Shopper and Fun Things to do in the Mountains.

After looking for 2 weeks for the right book for me and my wife I read the first 40 pages of this book and found that it was just what we were looking for. We already had a wonderful marriage and a satisfying sex life, but we wanted to find a way to improve on what was already good.
Most books out there seemed more about what the other person can do for "me", and were often more about lust than love. This book does an amazing job pointing out that true love making is about LOVE and that great sex is a perfectly normal part of a great relationship. (Beyond the sex, I'm already a better husband because of this book.)
As for the content itself... We both learned SO much about our own bodies and each other's bodies that we never knew. Just knowing "how" things work has completely re-vamped our sex life. Adding the "technical facts" (as I call them) to the techniques and intimacy tips... well, let's just say that the first night after reading the book my wife literally cried (in a good way) at how amazing it was. Thanks to this book we have a new definition of "normal" sex, and our love is deeper than ever.
