Sheila Gregoire talks about sex and it’s earned her some exclusion in the Christian world, but for all the wrong reasons. She’s been writing and speaking on sex within Christian marriage for years, but her latest book, “The Great Sex Rescue” taps new ground — and it’s fascinating.
She’s done intensive, comprehensive surveys of men and women — and her discoveries fuel what she covers in this book. Namely, Christians (and culture generally) have often put women in the terrible position of “obligation sex” or doing things they aren’t comfortable with because they think they “owe” it to their husbands. That’s just one of the things we cover, but an important one. That is NOT a healthy view of sex and no woman should feel this way.
Sheila is bold and unafraid to tackle popular Christian marriage books and authors. In fact, she often excerpts some of the worst lines and exposes just how toxic, abusive and insane some of them are. She’s authentic, fun and standing up for healthy relationships in a way that’s refreshing and essential
If you can’t tell, I absolutely loved speaking with her and highly recommend her work!
If you are struggling with sex in your marriage, I also want to mention the work of Janna Denton-Howes, a woman I have worked with and found to be an incredible, empowering resource.
