Book Description

Grandma’s Sex Handbook is comprehensive, explicit sexual advice from a Christian perspective for women who are married or are about to be. It’s based on guidance that’s been passed down from grandmother to granddaughter (and granddaughter-in-law) for at least 8 generations, usually 2 weeks before marriage.

The essence of Grandma’s sex advice is built around 2 principles: It’s okay for a wife to enjoy sex, and a wife should keep her husband satisfied sexually. Are you surprised that many Christian women have trouble enjoying sex due to doubts about what’s okay in bed and what’s not? Most wives want to satisfy their husbands, but you can’t do your best at that if you don’t enjoy sex. Why? It’s the difference between willing and wanting.

You may be willing to have sex any time your husband asks for it, but that alone puts too much pressure on him – if he always has to initiate sex, it can lead him to feel like he’s imposing, which in turn, leads him to be reluctant to ask. Always or usually getting sex when he asks for it may relieve his physical hunger, but having a wife who wants to have sex with him will satisfy your husband’s emotional needs like nothing else can. You need to enjoy sex, for your husband’s sake as well as your own!

So most of Grandma’s sex advice is focused on why and how to be a vixen in the bedroom and help married couples enjoy sex as God intended. It includes a glossary and index, and personal stories enhance many of the topics, with explanations including:

* What God thinks about sex
* Masturbation
* Why seeking orgasms is okay
* Why oral sex is okay
* What your clitoris is for
* Why sexual assertiveness is okay
* Men and porn
* Why sexy language is okay (in the bedroom)
* Why sex fantasies are okay (it’s not the same as lust!)

Once you understand the difference between sexual fantasy and lust, you’ll also be able to enjoy the last chapter, Grandma’s Sex Fantasy Cookbook, which is a collection of hundreds of Grandma’s favorite sex fantasy recipes.

ForeWord Clarion Review, by Jeannine Chartier Hanscom:

Grandma’s Sex Handbook encourages women to accept and embrace their sexuality as God’s natural design. As Wright puts it, “There is a sinful nature that Godly people should resist, but a normal sex drive is not part of a sinful nature, it is part of God’s design…God gave us sex, and he gave us libidos that periodically demand sexual satisfaction.”

This book is well organized and extremely thorough, written in a conversational tone that puts readers at ease. While recognizing that not every reader will feel immediately comfortable with the subject matter, as “It’s common knowledge: most Christians struggle with sex,” Wright nevertheless forges ahead with a forthright and honest exploration of nearly every aspect of sexuality between couples. She includes several personal stories, Bible references with subsequent exposition to support conclusions, and advice for couples with physical limitations due to partial paralysis or health concerns. However, the author does not shy away from candid discussion of pregnancy, STDs, the acceptability of sex toys and fantasy within a marriage, and more unusual sexual practices.

Wright’s statement in the foreword that the book is of an “explicit nature” is not an overstatement. Readers should be aware that in addition to the frank language, the book includes several graphic photos and very detailed drawings as well as sections that deal with what the author terms “Wild Sex,” all of which more conservative readers may find distasteful.

Grandma’s Sex Handbook is written with a simplicity that illuminates rather than condescends. For those readers who remain undaunted by the very direct, “anything goes” approach to discussing sexuality, the book could prove helpful and enlightening.

3.0 out of 5 stars Grandma's Sex Handbook September 8, 2011
Format:Paperback
I must admit, a book with this title never would have been on the top of my "to-read" list, but I am glad I took the time to read it. There was definitely quite a bit of useful information included and I gained some knowledge from reading it. I really loved the parts that talked about abortion and how the child is not a part of the mother because it has it's own DNA and is in fact, it's own person. I could definitely see myself using that argument in debates about abortion now. There were parts that I didn't agree with as well. I consider myself a Christian but some of the information/advice/ideas seemed really outdated for today's women. I'm not saying that it's wrong or bad advice, but I don't see it being followed by many women in today's day and age. I was also really put off by the book saying that single women should give their babies up for adoption with the only exception being if they are independently wealthy. There are plenty of single women who have and raise babies on their own and do a better job than some married couples. All in all, I found the majority of the advice and ideas to be helpful and informative and I enjoyed reading the book. I'm not sure I would recommend the book to anyone who isn't a Christian but it has been a good guide and I hope to use some of the information one day when I have children and grandchildren.

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything you ever wanted to know about sex February 10, 2010
Format:Paperback
Whoa! I chose this book thinking it would give me a few tips. It gave me that and SO much more. This book is aimed for a young woman that is about to be married but you can get a lot of useful information at any age with this book. It is very explicit, but if you want an honest approach to sex, it has to be. I love how the author covered not only sex, but preparation for marriage as well as reminding you how important to keep the spark and communication open throughout the years. I also like how she explains that you should not feel ashamed of your body or pleasing your husband or even yourself for that matter. This is a book that I think every woman should own and read. Excellent read!

5.0 out of 5 stars The book your mother should have told you about. June 17, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
This book, though explicit in nature never crosses the boundaries into the scandalous. The book is told from the Christian perspective and addresses the deep seated feelings that sex is a dirty secret that must be kept behind closed doors.

This book is a great read for any woman. It explores concerns of all women from the perspective bride with little experience, to the happily married woman looking to enhance her intimate relationship. The book explains how women can explore their own feelings and discuss their intimate feelings and desires with their partner.

I would recommend this book to every woman!

5.0 out of 5 stars I never got this talk!! June 16, 2009
Format:Kindle Edition
Wow!! I never got this talk, and I totally feel cheated! This book is an awesome book, and would make a great gift for the soon to be bride. I think maybe a month out from the wedding would be good, to give her time to absorb all the information, and man, there is alot of information! Everything from best positions, to emotional well being. This book is very explicit, yet, not "dirty" at all. My favorite part was all of the "sexy math". :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Book for Couples December 31, 2009
By Mick
Format:Paperback
I think it is excellent how the author makes the person reading this book question themselves while subtly giving fantastic advice/information before a couple is thinking of getting married. From politics, religion, your partner's looks, if one of you has a sexually transmitted disease--it is more than likely if you get married the spouse will get it, too, and contraception views. This portion of the book should be read and discussed by all couples before they make the commitment to get married.

Even if the two of you do not have any problems, the author suggests you get counseling before getting married. The counselor will come up with many questions for the two of you to ponder before getting married. For example, an important question is a financial one; one of the reasons many couples end up in divorce.

Grandma's Sex Handbook gives excellent advice on planning your wedding. She tells you not to focus on the actual wedding but what the wedding signifies--the life the two of you will share creating memories.

The book goes over the female productive system and the male productive system in great detail to help you better understand each other. Photos are included to help you understand. It is very educational and like no other book I have read before with regards to this.

There is so much to this book that I give it five out of five stars. It is helpful to couples with regards to before marriage, after marriage, different contraception's available, getting to know each other's body parts, getting pregnant and so much more. I highly recommend this book to those 18 years old or older.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great book about Sex July 28, 2009
Format:Paperback
Grandma and sex aren't two words you often see or use in the same sentence, so this book caught my attention. It was an informative read. The story is based on a family tradition that has been a part of the author's history for generations. The grandmother passes on advice about sex to the granddaughter or granddaughter in law. This book is the advice the author has for her future granddaughters. This book is open and honest. It goes into detail about sex without being "dirty" It dispels myths and gives the soon to be bride a lot of information. As a married woman, I even learned a few things. I think this would be a great gift for a soon to be or a young bride as the author intended or anyone interested in learning more about sex.

The book doesn't only address sex. It also talks about contraception, masturbation, pregnancy, and other related topics. It has diagrams to show sexual positions. It has bible verses to back up some of her claims. I had no idea oral sex was in the bible until I read this book. You will surprised and interested to read all the chapters of this book.

More About the Author

Hello, Ladies (and men!),

My pen name is Anne Wright, and when I started to write a sex advice book, I had no idea what I was getting into. Due to my poor health, my book became an extended-family project, and it turned into far more than I could have accomplished on my own. It covers more topics than I could have imagined, and overall, it's way more explicit than I'm comfortable with, yet each page seems appropriate somehow. If I had known at the beginning what it would be like at the end, there's no way I would have had the courage to start it, but perhaps that was one way God worked in bringing this book into being. At least, my family and I think so.

May God bless you as you read Grandma's Sex Handbook, and may he use it to help you become comfortable with sex, and enjoy this wondrous adventure of physically sharing bodies and imaginations with your loving spouse.

--Anne
