Dr. Wheat should stick to pap smears...
on September 4, 2011
This was so bad, i felt compelled to write my first review to encourage people to wave off from buying this book.
As a male that is very sexually experienced, but relatively new in my walk with Christ, I read this book at the request of my significant other. I admit that I found the first three chapters on the role of sex in a Christian marriage compelling. After that, the information quickly went into basic anatomy, and a few tired sex clichés a lot of pitches for companion books that he and his wife have penned on other relationship subjects, and soon after totally bottomed out. Once it hit bottom, Dr. Wheat starts to dig. I forced myself to speed read thru the remaining and finally had to put the book down in absolute disappointment when I came to the one brief entry on oral sex that basically boiled the act as a 'crutch' for men lacking the self-discipline to use intercourse to bring their mate to orgasm (chapter 15, pg 242). Or that a woman unhappy with the after sex mess 'use a tampon to control the issue' (chapter 15, pg 240).
The ONLY reason I gave this book two stars was for the first three chapters. Beyond that, this book has few redeeming qualities. Look at some of the other recommendations in this review thread for some better alternatives.
