By Dr. Juli Slattery / Tyndale House
Are you sometimes afflicted by bouts of “I’m not in the mood”? Here’s a prescription that will restore your marital intimacy to joyful health! With the warmth and understanding of a close friend, Dr. Juli Slattery honestly addresses men’s and women’s different needs to help you and your husband enjoy the satisfying sex life God intends. 208 pages, softcover from Tyndale.
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!
