In Real Sex: The Naked Truth about Chastity, Lauren Winner speaks candidly to single Christians about the difficulty - and the importance - of sexual chastity. With nuance and wit, she talks about her own sexual journey. Never dodging tough terms like confession and sin, she grounds her discussion of chastity first and foremost in scripture.

She confronts cultural lies about sex and challenges how we talk about sex in church (newsflash: however wrong it is, premarital sex can feel liberating and enjoyable!). Building on the thought of Wendell Berry, she argues that sex is communal rather than private, personal rather than public.

Real Sex will be an essential read for single Christians grappling with chastity, for married Christians committed to monogamy, and for those who counsel them. Download and start listening now!

    " not as sexy as i thought it would be...seriously, though, good subject matter but dry. i prefer passion and purity by e. elliot. "

    " I just reread this almost five years after my first time through. Winner's prose weaves thorough scriptural and cultural research with her honest personal perspective for a very real (title was right on!) approach to sex (a contrast to so many "true love waits" ideas published in Christianese). Winner also talks about the three-letter word in the context of community and spiritual discipline in ways that were convicting in other arenas of life as well. "

    " I appreciated this frank and truth-based discussion of sex within the context of church and, more importantly, community, and found Lauren Winner's criticisms of both popular culture and popular Christian culture to be extremely thought-provoking. I wish she had taken some of her points a bit further - for example, she talks about sex and marriage being things which instruct the entire community, which is essentially linked together as family, rather than individual couples completely separate from everyone else. I wish she had discussed this more in terms of what it would actually look like. "
