Where did you first learn about sex? Dr. Juli Slattery, a clinical psychologist and co-founder of Authentic Intimacy, states that many Christians don't have the big picture of God's perspective on sexual intimacy. Slattery encourages parents to talk to their children about God's plan for sexuality, so they won't be frustrated, as she was in her early years of marriage.

Some things, like intimacy, are hard to discuss. Clinical psychologist Dr. Juli Slattery answers the question she's asked most frequently: "What does God approve of?" Slattery says it can now be assumed that the average couple is dealing with porn, and many men and women are affected by sexual trauma, shame, and guilt, which are pervasive in a sexually permissive culture.
