Publisher's Summary

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.

Chasity for Single Christians who aren't virgins

I enjoyed listening to this and found the subject matter useful for thinking about sex while trying to live the straight and narrow Christian life as a single woman. The author uses her experience as an adult convert and an adviser on a secular university campus to talk about sex and chasity in the modern world for the modern Christian who may no longer be a virgin but would rather 'go and sin no more.'
