Item Description...
If you've asked it-it's in here! "Why does the Catholic Church say that sex is good in marriage, but bad, bad, bad outside of marriage?" "How can I find the love of my life?" "Isn't annulment just Catholic divorce?" "Can one not be a virgin yet change and be whole again?" "Why can't gay people get married if they love each other?" "Is it normal to fantasize about having sex-I mean, all of the time?" "Exactly how far is too far?" "Can you give me something more neutral to say in the back seat besides 'excuse me, let's be chase'?" Mary Beth Bonacci speaks to nearly 100,000 people every year. She speaks to Catholics across the country and around the world-about friendship, about relationships, about marriage, about God's plan for sexuality, and about finding real, honest love. 'And people speak back to her. They ask her questions-about sex, about dating, about healing after a shattered relationship, about marriage, about their struggles to live love. Their questions are real, specific and often very poignant. Now, for the first time, Mary Beth has published those questions-and her answers-in a comprehensive, readable guide which addresses the details of the very real struggle that people face in trying to live real love in a world gone mad. Through these questions and her answers, Mary Beth offers a comprehensive catechesis of the Church's teaching in the areas of marriage and human sexuality. She tackles the toughest issues-premarital sex, contraception, divorce, homosexuality, pornography, and others. She gives practical advice on living the Church's teachings. She offers compassionate support for those who have stumbled. And throughout it all, she demonstrates that a living respect for God's gift of sexuality is the way-the only way-to find real, honest love.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Brilliant Satire  Feb 23, 2008
This book is an excellent modern satire. From the cover illustration onwards, it's laugh-a-minute.

And it's not all blunt jokes - the genius of Bonacci is in the little touches, such as referring to women who have had abortions as "aborted women".
Not just a must read, an important read  Mar 18, 2006
This book is for all, those who are strong in chastity, those who struggle, those who dont know if its what they want, and I can go on. It had questions I asked myself and had searched on various sites for the answers, and it answers so clearly there is no doubt as to the message and anyone from any background can relate and understand its meaning.

I commend the author on her research and wide range of questions, keep up the good work.
Best book on Sex, Love & Romance  Feb 17, 2006
This is one of the most awesome books I have ever read. I teach a Catholic Youth Group-high schoolers, and have been reading the book to them. I can't just tell them what it says because very word is so great. I think every single person in America should read this book. There is so much truth in it. Even though it was written 10 years ago, everything she says is still relevant today. Everyone deserves to know the TRUTH about sex and dating. She talks in a language that is so respectful and loving, never judging. I wish I could have had this information when I was in high school and dating. Even though I have been married over 25 years, it helps me to see what went on when I was dating. This is a book about REAL love, the love we all want and need in life.
Touches the heart  Apr 16, 2004
I owned this book for a couple of years before actually reading it. I didn't want to bother with the silly nonsense but after the ending of a unhealthy five year relationship I opened it up and read it. It touches the heart and helps to heal the pain and covers just about everything associated with sex and relationships, no matter the age. This book talks directly to you and is never condescending. At times it seemed as if it was written precisely for me. I am rereading it again for the second time...another relationship has ended and once again I have found reprieve within its pages. I recommend it to men and women of any age in a relationship or not.
Everyone should read this!  May 1, 2002
Whether you are a teen, adult, married or single, there is so much in this book for you.
Mary Beth Bonacci does a superb job answering questions regarding love, dating, flirting, living together, guilt, healing the hurt, forgiveness, sexual attractions, healthy relationships, holding out for the right person, knowing when you've met the right marriage partner, living the single life, fear of loving or being loved, staying married, and more. All topics are handeled in the context of authentic Catholic moral teaching.
Mary Beth explains the reason for her book by ending with Christ's words to his disciples, "You live in My love when you keep My Father's commandments and live in His love. I tell you this that My joy may be your joy, and that your joy may be complete" (Jn 15:9).
This book is so complete and valuable for anyone who wants to find true joy in their relationships and in life.
Get this one for friends, siblings, parents and yourself!
