Editorial Reviews

Review

"Slattery takes a comprehensive approach to reigniting sexuality, discussing gender differences, body image, and the exhaustion of having young children. Her light doses of humor and honesty pull the reader along." --Library Journal, July 2009

Review

Dr. Juli Slattery’s advice for wives is practical, helpful, and biblically sound. Wives who read this book will be blessed by its wisdom, and husbands whose wives read this book will be blessed by its application. (Gary Thomas, author of Sacred Marriage and Sacred Influence)

I read No More Headaches: Enjoying Sex and Intimacy in Marriage in a about a week, which for me as rather quickly. I found myself captured by the realness of this book and couldn't find it in myself to put it down. I think it goes to show how much women really need a book like this in dealing with the know hows of understanding sex in a God centered marriage relationship.

Author Juli Slattery has done a great job discussing the sensitive subject of sex by communicating a little more than her own hurts and frustrations. Sex is not the easiest subject to understand and talk with each other about, but in this book ways are suggested to approach it cautiously.

Through scripture and real life stories the reader is shown several different approaches in their own behavior to help heal & mend their own personal sexual relationship. You'll find issues dealing with pornography, a man's sex drive, fatigue, children, boredom, past sexual issues, your body, and more.

Sorry guys, this book is written for women, though I am sure a man could definitely learn a thing or two. Ladies, if your spouse is interested, you could go through the chapters together and talk about the various information found throughout this book. I think it's good for not only women to understand the differences of man but also for men to understand the differences of woman when it comes to sex.

I would recommend this book to married and engaged women of all ages, as I know we all could use it in handling the good, bad, and ugly relational issues that come with marriage. 5 stars!

No More Headaches: Enjoying Sex & Intimacy in Marriage (Tyndale/Focus On The Family) would make a helpful read for a monogamous wife and mother of a couple of young kids who has been married for about 10 years. Dr. Juli Slattery tackles differences between men and women in this overview of married sexuality, coaching her readers toward a greater commitment to their mates, themselves and God.

She's frank without being salcious, and discusses desire, physiology, our past baggage, life in our hyper-sexualized society, and the effects of parenthood on intimacy in far more detail than you'd hear at church, but less detail (thank you) than you'd hear on Oprah. Slattery would affirm my own (thank you) response - she observes that younger and older women tend to have different comfort levels with discussions about sex. Younger women who have been brought up in our sex-saturated culture keep far more on the table when discussing their sex lives with their friends than we boomer women do. My own experience working with college women has confirmed this.

She does a good job connecting the physical to the emotional and spiritual, while avoiding specific prescriptions (how adventurous should a couple get?) in favor of general principles. Slattery's friendly writer's voice and lots of anecdotes from her own counseling practice make the book like a heart-to-heart conversation with a smart, wise Christian girlfriend - and a useful overview/gentle course correction for some church-going women.

My husband heard Juli Slattery on a radio program and suggested I get the book. I figured something which would take away all my headaches would be GREAT!!
As I looked closer I realized the book was encouraging Christian wives to claim and enjoy the intimacy which marriage only provides without guilt or embarassment.
My husband was even willing to sit with me and take turns reading this book with me. Generally it is written to women, but I felt that it helped my husband understand better how women experience sexual intimacy.
It has been educational and freeing even for us who have been married 36 years.
If you want more intimacy in your marriages women, READ THIS BOOK!!!
I'm glad we did.

Format: Paperback
*You Got Me What? *My Bedroom Ceiling Hasn't Changed in the Past Five Years *Is It Good to Be a Bad Girl? *Is "Sexy Mom" an Oxymoron? *A Different Kind of Headache *What Is This Creature Called "Man"? *"Try the Oysters, Dear" *I Can't Compete with That *Check Your Baggage at the Gate *Reclaiming Our Secret Garden *How's Your Love Life?

After struggling with intimacy in marriage, Juli Slattery's No More Headaches brought the reality of my circumstances full circle. God's mercy and grace brought my husband and I through some very difficult and real sexuality issues. This book, in combination with personal relationship with Christ and counseling, greatly strengthened our marriage. I laughed myself to tears as I read because much healing had already taken place for me. If I hadn't been as far along in healing as I was, I would have cried in relief that I was not alone and/or crazy! I read many excerpts aloud to my husband. We found healing through your boldness and frankness. Glory to God!

Thank You, Juli. I have four extra copies to use as resource to those I now encourage through counseling.

The author is first a psychologist. I'm suspicious of psychology. Because of this, she sees more 'grey' issues than I believe appropriate and she makes more recommendations to see a counselor than I believe is necessary.

I have no doubt that she is also a Christian, but the book seems to heavily rely upon psychology and references to 'experts'. Scripture seems secondary. Further, the author's application of Scripture is, at times, questionable and usually shallow. Her understanding of God's purposes for Sex is incomplete. I recommend What Is the Meaning of Sex? for a better treatment of the theology of sex.

Scripture is more of an add on than a basis for the author's counsel. She never mentions some very significant Scriptural passages like; Genesis 1:28, Proverbs 5, and specifics from Song of Solomon.

Many of the ideas presented are good. And she brings up many good points. But she also fails to provide sufficient depth of coverage of many subjects. For example, in dealing with body image she brings up dress, but only in passing. She brings up a husband's opinion, but without discussing it's importance. Some major issues, like Birth Control or the influence of feminism, are never addressed.

Even though your marriage may not struggle with pornography, I do recommend reading chapter 10. The ideas applied to dealing with pornography are very applicable to other issues that may need to be addressed.

The book has a number of good insights, but is severely incomplete.

The physical quality of the book is exceptionally poor. The paper in my newspaper is better quality. The publisher should be ashamed of their product.
