Enjoy a thrilling friendship and sexual relationship. This Bible-based book on sex, romance, and sexuality shows married Christian couples how to join together, body and soul, in the sweet and thrilling sexual intimacy God intends for them. Its practical advice will help you experience new depths in your friendship and sexual intimacy.
It is great for couples who have a wonderful sex life and friendship but desire even greater intimacy.
And it is super-helpful for couples trying to overcome misinformation or bad past sexual experiences. It is indispensable for people who say things such as:
"The only time he talks is when he wants sex."
"She pushes me away when I get romantic."
"I feel like screaming when he touches me."
"The Bible says it’s her duty to have sex with me."
"You want me to do what?!"
The Bible offers pure and exhilarating sexuality. Fanning the Flames of Romance shows couples timeless truths that help them escape the world’s corrupting influences and enjoy a delightful sexual relationship.
You can look forward to making love with love, playfulness and tenderness, just like Solomon and his beloved in the Song of Solomon (also known as the Song of Songs).
