Sexual counseling is not a task that pastors and general Christian counselors usually consider theirs. If one is to venture into the field, he or she must have a solid foundation of reliable information - both physiological and psychological - and confidence that caring intervention will make a difference. This book has been written to provide reliable information and also building a basis of confidence for Christian counselors. 'A Christian Guide to Sexual Counseling' offers counselors procedures for helping couples with sexual problems by first exploring the ambivalent messages that church and culture have conveyed about sexuality. Because the primary sex organ of both the male and the female is the mind, attitudes and concepts must be scrutinized, weighed, and approved or disapproved. As the author so forcefully maintains, sexual counseling will always be trying to repair distortions if sound sex education does not become a priority for the church. Many contemporary Christians are wary of sex therapy because of the notoriety of charlatans and pop sex psychologists. But faddish theories do not comprise the basis for the mainstream of sex therapy. There are sound biological and psychological bases for sexual counseling. And Christian spirituality is not - or should not be - disjoined from treatment of sexual problems. So Mayo brings body, mind, and spirit together in her assessment of the common problems and the appropriate treatments. The book includes discussions of the following areas: -- attitudes of the church toward sexuality -- the responsibility of Christian leaders to offer positive teaching -- normal sexual functioning -- common sexual problems in a marriage -- the role and possible outcomes of sexual counseling -- female problems -- male problems -- special concerns for singles -- premarital education

"Teaching Moral Sex is the first comprehensive study to focus on the role of religion in the history of public sex education in the United States. It examines religious contributions to national sex education organizations from the late nineteenth century to the early twenty-first century, highlighting issues of public health, public education, family, and the role of the state. It details how public sex education was created through the collaboration of religious sex educators-primarily liberal Protestants, along with some Catholics and Reform Jews-with "men of science," namely physicians, biology professors, and social scientists. Slominski argues that the work of early religious sex educators laid foundations for both sides of contemporary controversies regarding comprehensive sexuality education and abstinence-only education. In other words, instead of casting religion as merely an opponent of sex education, this research shows how deeply embedded religion has been in sex education history and how this legacy has shaped terms of current debates. By focusing on religion, this book introduces a new cast of characters into sex education history, including Quaker and Unitarian social purity reformers, the Young Men's Christian Association, military chaplains, the Federal Council of Churches, and the National Council of Churches. These religious sex educators made sex education more acceptable to the public and created the groundwork for recent debates through their strategic combination of progressive and restrictive approaches to sexuality. Their contributions helped to spread sex education and influenced major shifts within the movement, including the mid-century embrace of family life education"--
