Intended for Pleasure is an easy-to-ready reference book that has helped hundreds of thousands of Christian couples gain the most out of their sexual relationship. The Wheats, along with their medical associate Dow Pursley, combine biblical teaching on love and marriage with the latest medical information on sex and sexuality. Drawing on years of experience in counseling couples, the authors have updated each chapter, adding information on contraceptives and a new chapter on sexually transmitted diseases, clarifying information on AIDS, herpes, HPV infection, and gonorrhea. Intended for Pleasure gently encourages the married couple to make their sexual relationship the fulfilling experience it was meant to be. This is a complete sex manual, with basic facts, illustrations, and frank discussion of all facets of human sexuality. A perfect gift for newlyweds and a source book for pastors and marriage counselors, this book will help all couples understand and enjoy the gift God intended for pleasure. Dr. Ed Wheat, a family physician for decades, is an authority on premarital and marital counseling. His wife, Gaye Wheat, has presented Christian Home seminars with her husband. Their associate, Dow Pursley, M.D., carries on the practice of Dr. Wheat, who is now retired.
