Free VIDEO Study for The Great Sex Rescue
Merchandise is Here!

Did you know that we have a FREE video study that goes along with The Great Sex Rescue?

Be prepared for the most fun book study you’ll ever do with your friends! Learn what teachings have hurt sex and marriage for women–and then purge them from your Christian theology! Instead, we help you reframe these beliefs and replace them with what is truly biblical:

Mutual — Intimate — Pleasurable Sex!

You’ll get 8 videos that are perfect for either an online study or an in-person group. Each video is about 12-15 minutes long, summarizing the chapters and filled with interesting stories and stats.

Then we’ve got discussion questions so that you can process the new way of thinking about sex, and talk about how to deprogram yourself from anything toxic you grew up hearing.

 

Did you read The Great Sex Rescue and love it?

Then share it with your friends–and help them find freedom!

It’s completely free, and all the videos and questions are right here.

We were originally hoping to film this in one of the lovely old churches in our hometown, but it was in the middle of the COVID lockdown, and for months nobody would let us in. But you know what? All the thoughts and points are still there! Even if we did get a little silly.

 

(Katie really wanted to make this blooper reel for us; I think it gave her something fun to do after all the editing!).

We’ve been hearing from so many people about how The Great Sex Rescue is changing marriages, and how pastors are using it in their churches.

Here’s one note that was shared on Instagram and Facebook:

I’m a pastor with executive responsibilities, serving at a non-denominational church in suburban Texas. Your book is sparking great conversation and revelation among the women and men of our congregation. I’m about to start a women’s group to go through it and one of our Elder couples used it as a pre-marital counseling tool for a young couple that just got married. It may indeed be grassroots before it catches fire, but let there be no doubt it is indeed fire!

When people read The Great Sex Rescue, the most common words we hear are “freeing” and “validating”.

And also “at last”! At last someone is acknowledging that much of what women are taught about sex is harmful–and not even true! At last we can get back to a healthy view of sex that sets people free.

The lessons are divided up like this:

  • Introduction (short; for the leader)
  • Week 1: What Is Sex?
  • Week 2: Sex as Intimacy.
  • Week 3: Sex Feels Good!
  • Week 4: Gate-keeping.
  • Week 5: Lust & Pornography
  • Week 6: Let’s Talk Libido!
  • Week 7: “Duty Sex” Isn’t Sexy.
  • Week 8: Unlocking Passion.

You don’t have to do anything. No sign-ups. No payments. It’s all just there for you to start whenever you want!

We just want to get the word out there, and with so many people asking how to share this with friends, we thought this was a no-brainer.

I hope you love the study and that it helps you introduce your friends to The Great Sex Rescue. And I’ll give the last word to a pastor who is using it with premarital counseling with couples. He wrote this on Instagram: 

The Great Sex Rescue by Sheila Wray Gregoire is important, essential reading and it’s about time someone wrote this book.

The Great Sex Rescue is based upon the results of a 20,000 woman research project that Gregoire and her team led. Those findings showed that many Christian women have been hurt and marriages destroyed by the harmful “‘sex advice’ offered in bestselling Christian sex and marriage books.” Gregoire then asks the question. “What if our evangelical ‘treatments’ for sex issues make things worse?”

What follows is an incredibly valuable unpacking of biblical truths that bring to light the lies and injustices often found in Christian marriages. Gregoire leaves no stone unturned while discussing porn, sexual dis-satisfaction, issues of consent within marriage, sexual pain and even erectile dysfunction. All the while quoting from actual Christian books that are saying the most horrific things. Throughout the book she has check-ins and Explore together sections that ask couples to discuss the findings in their own context.

I read this book together with Melissa and I’m so glad we did. Much of this is a reminder and yet Gregoire’s discoveries were also shocking, saddening and disappointing. We, in the church, have made a mess of marriages and it’s time we clean it up. Gregoire puts it like this, “The over arching principles in this book are nothing new. You likely learned them when you were four years old in Sunday school. Don’t do things that harm others. Do unto others as you would have them do you unto you. Care about people.”

Sheila Wray Gregoire and her band of researchers and truth tellers have written a ground breaking book that absolutely needs to be read. I highly recommend The Great Sex Rescue by Sheila Wray Gregoire to pastors, church leaders, marriage counsellors, youth pastors and anyone who works with couples. I will be giving a copy to every couple I marry from now on.

That’s awesome! And I hope many more find freedom, too.

Is Someone Stepping on Your Air Hose?

So many women--and many men as well--honestly feel like the church is hurting them. I do not believe that it is Jesus that is hurting them, but the things that the church teaches, especially around sex and marriage, do cause harm. Our surveys have shown that...

Can Sex Be Hot and Holy at the Same Time?

Can sex be hot and holy at the same time? One of my big picture passions that I want people to understand is that sex is more than just physical--it's supposed to be deeply intimate too. And maybe to understand that, we need to take a step back to see what God thinks...

    My husband and I recruited another couple we are friends with to do this study about a month ago. It really led to some interesting conversations and great reflection on our marriages. And I so, so appreciated the tips in the first lesson about how to discuss sex in a group without making it awkward! We are pretty comfortable with the friends we chose to do it with (hence choosing to go through it first with them!), but following those guidelines would make it so much easier to do this study with a wider group. Super helpful!

      I’m so glad, Kya! That’s great. We’re actually extremely pleasantly surprised at how many couples, and even men, want to do this study. We never really anticipated that, and it’s been a huge encouragement to us.

    It’s very inspiring to know that some churches are starting to read, use and discuss your book!

    Is this a study to do with a small group 5 couples? And then possibly the wives split off in the men’s split off and then you have homework with your husband to talk about individually?
