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.--ForeWord Clarion Review, by Jeannine Chartier Hanscom
