Publisher's Summary

Candid and contemporary, this audiobook gives you a Christian place to turn for answers to your most intimate - and embarrassing - questions.

Billions of people have had sex. Far fewer have made love. In The Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex, author Sheila Wray Gregoire helps women see how sexual intimacy was designed to be physically stupendous but also incredibly intimate.

Whether you're about to walk down the aisle, newly married, or you've been married for decades, The Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex will lead you on a wonderful journey of discovery toward the amazing sex life God designed you for.

With humor, research, and lots of anecdotes, author Sheila Wray Gregoire helps women see how our culture's version of sex, which concentrates on the physical above all else, makes sex shallow. God, on the other hand, intended sex to unite us physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Gregoire walks through these three aspects of sex, showing how to make each amazing, and how to overcome the roadblocks in each area we often encounter.

Drawing on survey results from over 2,000 people, she also includes lots of voices from other Good Girls, giving insight into how other women have learned to truly enjoy sex in marriage.

Even the "perfect couple" needs to read this.


For your sake, your husband's sake and your marriage's sake, read this!
Since we weren't having any big problems, I didn't think I'd get anything out of this book. But oh boy,was I wrong! I LOVED this book and immediately saw it affect our relationship for the better. Everyone needs to read this, whether you've been married a day, 30 years.

So there's nothing wrong with me!

I've always thought that I wasn't the type of woman that was very interested in sex at all. My husband however have been constantly complaining that we never have sex and why that is. I always felt that there was something wrong with me and I could understand why. My husband got more and more frustrated and I buried my head in the sand and hoped that the problem would go away. It didn't.

I came over this book and it has helped me to understand myself more and also why my husband wants to have sex often. Nothing is wrong with me and I'm not alone! Must read for all newly weds!

Good but...

She spent a substantial amount of time addressing topics relevant to virgins, which is great for them, but I struggled to stay focused during those passages because I've been married nearly a decade.

Fantastic!

I wasn't sure going into this book what to expect. Just a few minutes into it, I realized it was nothing like I was expecting. A very good read. Tasteful and well done. If you are unsure about the whole "sex thing", this book is definitely the way to go. I was sad when it ended. Fantastic!

Life changing

This book is absolutely amazing I'm so glad I bought it. I listened to it in two days and I'm gonna listen to it again and again! I can't tell you how much I needed this biblical view of sex and marriage. Thank you sooo much for writing this book.

This Book is Very Helpful

What made the experience of listening to The Good Girl's Guide to Great Sex (and You Thought Bad Girls Have All the Fun) the most enjoyable?

Even though I am male, I found the ideas in this book very helpful.

What did you like best about this story?

It is not really a story, but the best things about this book is if you want to be in God's will about your sexual life and have GREAT sex this is a very helpful book.

Which scene was your favorite?

The advise that Shelia gives, that my wife does, that is very helpful to me but HARD, is that she tell the ladies not to have sex with their husband every time they want it. All the others books on sex that I have read does not give this advise and are written by males. Ladies please be strong and loving when you do this.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This book did not make me laugh or cry, but I found it very helpful.

Very helpful. It blessed me

I would suggest this book for all those who have not has sex before and for those who have. But I will probably be using this book to help teach my children about love and sex when that time comes. Good listen.

Very Helpful for Making Decisions

Helpful when trying to decide what should and shouldn't be done in bed. Although, the author does not give a definitive answer on what's "right" or "wrong" for most topics, she lets the reader decide. author appears to switch back and forth from a "women's rights" motive to "serving your husband" motive, which can be confusing. The full saving gospel could have been presented better (or at all). Then again, I suppose that's not intention of the book. As a whole, very worthwhile book for those with doubts or questions about the subject.
