This book, Pulling Back the Shades, is a book that the authors wrote to counter 50 shades but also to educate Christian women on sexuality God's way. Education is needed on what God says in His word about sex. The church needs to talk about this especially in light of what our current world is offering in the form of entertainment.
Pulling Back the Shades explores reasons why women turn to erotica and how to help with this. There are stories of women who have suffered at the hands of the sin of this stuff and are suffering grave consequences from it. The good news is that any woman can be free from it if she chooses too. The truth is that only intimacy can fill a woman's heart and like porn this false intimacy that is accomplished through books and movies like 50 shades destroys true intimacy. Great and amazing sex that lasts can only be experienced in a pure marriage bed between two biblically married intimate partners. Intimacy is much more than bodies banging together which may be thrilling for a moment but rocking intimacy that lasts and is extraordinary can only be experienced the way the Bible requires otherwise you are robbing your self of God's best for you.
There are great dangers that occur in your mind, heart, body and soul that do occur when you expose yourself to this. It is hard work to get them out of your mind so you can truly give yourself fully to the one you are married to or will be married to. Trust God's best and stay away from this stuff!
