Do you want a stronger, more exciting sex life with your husband? As a married woman, you have the power to increase sexual fulfillment for you and your husband–if you aren’t stymied by false assumptions about a wife’s role in sex.
In Enjoy: The Gift of Sexual Pleasure for Women, Dr. Clifford and Joyce Penner dispel assumptions that can keep women from accepting and expressing their God-given sexuality in marriage. After more than forty years as sex therapists and educators, the Penners have learned what helps couples build lasting, mutually enjoyable sex in marriage. Their knowledge is culled from the stories of thousands of individuals and couples who sought help with frustrations and have found relief and mutual fulfillment.
In this book they share step-by-step, practical ways for wives to move from duty and disappointment to pleasure and fulfillment. Learn how the woman’s biblical role for sex in marriage is to pursue all of who she is sexually and share her sexuality with her husband, which will, in turn, increase his satisfaction.
Be empowered as a woman to embrace your sexuality and find deeper enjoyment with your husband. This title is a companion to The Married Guy’s Guide to Great Sex, also by the Penners.

This was a very sensitively written and easy to understand book. Written by a married couple who are sex therapists and educators, Joyce and Clifford Penner’s premise is that women can enjoy sex within a marriage relationship and indeed have a right to enjoy it as well. It contains exercises throughout which are designed to help build a woman’s confidence in expressing what works and doesn’t work for her with her husband.
What is most impressive about this book is that when the doctors were giving guidance to help women in discovering their sexuality it was always within the marriage context. They took much of their understanding from what scripture says about how husbands and wives should behave toward each other, and that includes women being empowered to speak to their husbands about the most intimate aspect of their marriage – sex.
This book is written primarily for those women who find themselves having problems, but women who have been married for many years may find its contents very beneficial for their own intimacy. When a couple have been married for a long time it is quite easy to fall into a slump, so it’s reassuring to read a book like Enjoy: The Gift of Sexual Pleasure for Women which says that it’s not only OK to enjoy this part of your marriage but that it is essential for the woman to feel truly at one with her husband.
