I write this review as a conservative Christian. Over the past few years, I've been critical of the conservative Christian marriage literature. I'm past the anger, but I haven't changed my negative assessment of the literature's treatment of sex in marriage. Conservative Christian authors simply don't write about female sexuality with the same specificity with which they address male sexuality. It may not be the authors' intent, but what results is an imbalance in the authors' counsel. Although not targeted to my tribe, Laurie Watson's book provides what is missing in my corner of the world.
Yet, in saying that the author addresses female sexuality with specificity, I worry that I do the book a disservice. Husbands are not ignored. Far from it! Throughout, the book sounds a beautiful call to mutuality and eroticism. The preferences of each spouse are understood and balanced. In fact, in each of the vignettes, the ability of the author to advocate for both spouses is a hallmark of the book and a testimony to the depth of her understanding, maturity, and compassion.
To make her points, Laurie Watson draws on 20 years of experience as a sex therapist. The result is a book that is a superb example of narrative nonfiction writing.Read more ›
Laurie Watson is a master at capturing snapshots of relational dynamics, and using them to challenge and inspire little steps toward change ... and big ones too. It's not a "one size fits all" approach, but one that very much empowered me to better define and create the relationship I want to have. The hope she offers is not false. She presents a way of relating that will capitalize on the goodwill you have toward your partner (even if it's not much :-)) and authentically downsize the obstacles to intimacy (even if they seem quite large).
In the same way she captures the interplay of the various factors that shape our belief systems and behaviours. She does it in a way that invites being attentive to the influence of our family of origin, the feedback of our partner, and yet still true to our own heart's desires. This is a book for anyone who values significant insight and momentum toward lasting change.
Expect that both men and women will find this book appealing as it has a well balanced, respectful, and empathetic voice. Engaging just a few of its many thoughtful queries and creative ideas could be enough to keep most folk out of the counselor's office and at home enjoying intimacy.
My only criticism would be the title, as this is not just a book for those wanting to want sex again, but definitely for anyone interested in great sex period.
I found this book well written. It was insightful and had helpful tips. It was written in a way that the "regular" person could understand without feeling stupid trying to figure out the meanings. What I liked about this book as the examples or the couples featured in this book and the different situations were very relatable. At the end of the chapters is a "Help Yourself" section. It lists a few questions for discussion or just to thin about for yourself. Another thing nice about this book is that it is geared towards both men and women. It helps to give view points from both sides as we all know you can't know the true story unless you know both sides of it. Also, after reading this book you will realize that you are more normal then you thought. This book is worth the money. I would pick up a copy and keep it by your bedside. After reading this book, if it does not help you in the bedroom, then you might have other problems.
