The Sexperiment Book Review

I finished this book in two days.  Yep, it was that good. I’ve challenged my hubby to read it now too.  Here’s my review of the book

The Sexperiment is written by Ed and Lisa Young.  Ed is a Pastor in the Dallas, Tx area.  The book is NOT a sex manual and it is written primarily for people who are already married.  I say primarily because there are sections at the end of each chapter for both singles and the engaged.

The big premise of the book that gets the most attention is the challenge to have sex with your spouse for seven straight days in a row.  Some of you may think..”Yeah?  What’s the big deal about that?”  While others of you might be thinking “Are you kidding me?”  This book deals with both attitudes.

The real premise of the book is building intimacy in a marriage.  Physical, emotional and spiritual intimacy.  These things can get lost by the wayside in  even the best marriages.  God created sex and called it good.  He wants your married sex life to be a good thing, but so many things can get in the way of this.  The book talks about being intentional in the things we do for our marriage both in and out of the bedroom. Each chapter addresses a different issue that can get in the way of God’s best for you in the bedroom and the livingroom as well.  Things like excuses and lust and selfishness.  Each chapter also has Action Steps to be done.  I have to admit, some of the action steps may get hard or even painful depending on where you are in your marriage.  However, I think they are all good things to do.

Overall, I think the book is excellent.  It addresses a need that all marriages have….how to build and keep the intimacy and closeness that we had at first.

If you’re married, I’d recommend this book to you.  When you’re done reading it and working throught it, then take the sexperiment yourself and see if you don’t end up with a better, more fulfilling marriage.
