"Women, if you want to REALLY understand your man's needs and expectations, this book is for you. This well-written tome is intended for women, but as a man, let me tell you, Shiela understands the opposite sex! My wife and I read it together and learned a lot. Shiela ends each chapter with advice for men...I appreciate that.
Shiela's writing is crisp; her observations fascinating; her conclusions dead-on. She offers hope to women with imperfect bodies and unpredictable sex drives. The book is tastefully modest but is still direct and to-the-point.
I predict that this book will help thousands of couples experience all the joy God intended for them in the bedroom. I highly recommend this book!"

Awesome help for putting an end to those "headaches.", August 31, 2004
"Shelia Wray Gregoire has an incredible way of telling it like it is in this book. I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, as did my husband, and will recommend it to ALL of my married friends. She hit every single nail on the head with all of my issues concerning sex and intimacy in a Christian marriage, helping me to feel that I am not alone or abnormal. Sex for women is a head thing and Sheila teaches you how to retrain your thoughts and emotions to better allow you to not only enjoy that intimacy with your husband, but to also WANT it!!! (something I had just about given up on) Another thing that was great was the way she shows you the men's perspective on sex. It helps a lot just knowing where he is coming from. Plus she gives a special section at the end of each chapter just for the men to read that hits the main points of what you just read (in case he doesn't want to read the whole book). This is a book I don't recommend lending to friends, only because you will want to hold on to it forever and make notes in it and highlite areas and reread it many, many times! This is the first book of hers I have read, but I plan to find To Love, Honor, and Vacuum because of how much I enjoyed reading this one."

"Writing in a conversational, first person style,Gregoire offers understanding, sensitivity and practical insight into one of the most intimate parts of marriage...Whether engaged, newly married or married for many years, this book is a great tool, packed with useful suggestions."

Last Thursday I was in the public library with my daughter, just browsing, not knowing what book I would choose. I ran across your book and said I definitely need this one. I started reading your book and was like oh my gosh, I'm not the only one. How did this author describe my situation so accurately. While reading your book I began to pray, not my normal prayer but a very specific prayer. The reason why I had a hard time being intimate was because of resentment and unforgiveness in my heart. I began to pray to God to remove those things and restore in me a clean heart. I also prayed to God to help me to look to him for happiness. I also began to see how I honor God when I support my marrriage. Well today is Wednesday, almost a week later and God immediately fixed my heart. I've let go of hurt and pain and my husband and I were intimate and it felt really good. The first time feeling intimacy with my husband in 3yrs. Thank yo so much. I'm greatful to God for giving you this idea to write this book.
