Not entirely sure what I expected - this was a free download for my Kindle, by an author whom I knew of due to his books on parenting. I don't agree with all his parenting techniques, but always liked ... Read full review

A must read for Christian couples. This opens the conversation about sexuality and intimacy; definitely follow the recommendations and stick to specific chapters in the premarital stage (to begin to have those conversations) and save the other chapters for after marriage. Read full review

Excellent Resource

This book is an excellent resource for anyone wanting to know more about the marriage bed. Dr. Leman is very honest and doesn't beat around the bush. Read full review

Use this with couples when doing marriage prep. Useful with Christian couples as it explains basics and helps them answer questions and reassure them that’s God got it all in hand

This book was ridiculous. I picked it up a few months before my wedding and it made me so angry that I actually reached the point of tears. It's focused on stereotypical gender roles (man gives love to get sex, woman gives sex to get love) that are not a cure-all for every relationship. They're so generalized that they fail to address the uniqueness of every relationship. Sometimes women want sex, too. And when they don't, they don't need to drop their pants any time their husband wants to have sex. Also, I have a hard time taking advice from someone who has substituted the anatomically correct term penis for the term "Mr. Happy". Leman begins the book establishing that he will be frank, but the last time I checked, grown ups are capable of using grown up words. If you have to refer to it as "Mr. Happy" maybe you shouldn't be having sex, much less advising anyone on the subject. I won't even start on how he addresses people who have been previously abused. Disgusting and absurd.

As the author of The Birth Order Book, and What Your Childhood Memories Say about You, among other books, and as an occasional guest on popular TV and radio shows, Dr. Kevin Leman is a well-known name to some, especially in Christian circles. Dr. Leman makes it apparent in the first chapter that he is writing specifically for those with Christian values (for example, Leman repeatedly cautions against sex before marriage and describes sex as designed by God for marriage) but that is not to say that others with similar value systems may not also find the book useful.
The easy-to-read, conversational writing style paired with the straightforward and—some might say—feisty tone made the book a quick read. Dr. Leman uses appropriate terms for genitals and does not avoid using words such as orgasm or ejaculation when writing practically about these subjects but uses a number of euphemisms when writing more light-heartedly about ideas to set the mood, for example. In many cases his use of language is appropriate for the tone of the section, but I found his repeated reference to the penis as “Mr. Happy” overused.
