From the Inside Flap
A classic for thirty years, Intended for Pleasure is an easy-to-read reference book that combines biblical teaching on love and marriage with the latest medical information on sex and sexuality. This popular resource gently encourages married couples to make their sexual relationship the fulfilling experience it was meant to be. This is a complete sex manual with basic facts, illustrations, and frank discussion of all facets of human sexuality. A perfect gift for newlyweds and a sourcebook for pastors and marriage counselors, this book has helped more than a million people understand and enjoy the gift God intended for pleasure.
In this fourth edition you will enjoy a new foreword by Dennis Rainey, as well as updated medical information and resources.|"The most medically accurate description of sexual function in the male and female available today. This material is presented in wholesome terms that would be of help to any married or soon-to-be married couple."--Tim LaHaye
"Dr. Wheat identifies the sexual problems we've been hesitant to reveal and offers solutions. It is a most helpful balance of the scriptural and the sensual--the technique and the practical. I warmly recommend it."--J. Allam Petersen, Director of Family Concern
Ed Wheat, MD (1926-2001), was a family physician for decades and an authority on premarital and marital counseling. His wife, Gaye Wheat, has presented Christian Home seminars with her husband.
From the Back Cover
God gave humankind the gift of sex. But many couples don't experience the kind of joy and fulfillment God intended. If you've ever been frustrated with a lack of intimacy in your marriage, or if you just want to know more about how you can get the most out of your relationship, Intended for Pleasure is for you.
This honest and frank resource will answer your questions about sex and sexuality, improving sexual response, sex techniques for pregnancy, birth control, sex at any age, solutions for sexual problems, and much more. All of the questions you've been afraid to ask (or didn't even know to ask!) are answered right here.

Note: The book appears to be directed largely at husbands and soon-to-be husbands and instructs soon-to-be husbands to read the first 100 pages of the book in the last few weeks before the wedding (to prepare for the wedding night) and to save the rest of the book for after the wedding day. I encourage readers to follow this instruction.
Caution at every turn.
Top international reviews
It is frank, open and honest without ever being tawdry or inappropriate. It is also very helpfully and sensitively written from a Christian perspective, and really fills a gap in the market.
