What a great book! In our early years of marriage, we read a lot about the differences between men and women. We felt like we had very open communication about sex. But after 12 years of marriage and 3 kids later, it's easy to fall into a rut. This book has reminded us of the importance of sexual intimacy and has us talking about it again. It's relevant and has been a great discussion starter. We love the summaries and pillow talk questions at the end of each chapter. Thank you Ted C. & Dr. Smalley for sharing your stories and for making what can be an uncomfortable topic, easy to discuss.

The Language of Sex--A FirstLook Feature
From: [...]

Is sex keeping your relationship alive? Or better yet, is your relationship keeping your sex life alive?

Dr. Gary Smalley and Pastor Ted Cunningham have just published The Language of Sex: Experiencing the Beauty of Sexual Intimacy. Written from a Christian perspective, this is Dr. Smalley's first book on the topic of sex. Long held as a taboo topic within the church, today's Christians are beginning to open up about their sex lives, its problems, and solutions. Dr. Smalley believes that sex is largely undiscussed because it is a private often uncomfortable subject, similar to talking about one's own funeral. However, to properly honor and protect the sexual relationship, he states that it must be discussed. The Bible, he writes "provides more instruction and guidance for how to make a baby than for how to take care of one! God has given us sex as a gift and it's one to be thoroughly treasured, celebrated and enjoyed."1070759-1506393-thumbnail.jpg

After being in relationship ministry for 45 years, Dr. Smalley has traced most sexual issues in marriage back to relationship problems. Each marriage has a formula for great sex, beginning with honor, developing into security, leading to intimacy, and finalizing with sex. "The best sex of your life starts in your heart, not in your head or between your legs." Sex is the result of building upon a secure loving relationship. "Sexual problems are indicative of greater issues."

Think about your relationship with your spouse. Do you:

Consider your husband/wife to be extremely important?

Value your spouse's thoughts?

Have you kept your commitment to the relationship since your marriage? Sexually? Emotionally?

I enjoyed reading the language of sex. Much of it was new information that helped me express my needs. Plus understand male needs and drives. Did you know that too many quickies can burn out a woman's sex drive!!! We are not wired like men we need the time and attention. Good to know!

Technique is good, many books are written on the art of sex, but this one gets to the heart of why God created sex and how God designed it be such where the man and woman are one. I give this book to my young adult children so as they are preparing themselves for marriage, they will go into marriage with the correct mind set or the purpose of making love, then just the act itself..beyond the hormones and the feeling of it. This teaches them how to have a deeper and more fulfilling relationship then most people really have in this world. Christian or Non Christian
