Sex Interrupted is a scripture inspired guide to love, relationships and sex. It's for singles and youth and is born out of Sarah's passion to see young people enlightened on the truth about sex and to correct the misconceptions some already have on this most interesting subject.
Sarah was motivated to write Sex Interrupted because of her own and other young peoples’ struggles trying to live up to their moral ideals while living in the real world of temptation and pressure. With the rise in the spread of sexually transmitted diseases and teenage pregnancies being at an all time high, Sarah’s book aims to encourage chastity among youth and consequently bring down these saddening statistics.
Each chapter begins with a fictional story – some humorous, some romantic – with which Sarah hopes young people can identify, and then goes on to biblical principles from which young people can gain guidance. Topics touched on include dealing with guilt, coping with pressure, setting boundaries, and how to have healthy relationships.
“Lots of charities, churches, community organizations and even governmental organizations teach abstinence, but they don’t go far enough,” explained Sarah. “My book doesn’t just say, ‘young people: don’t have sex,’ it says if you find yourself emotionally attached to someone and you are committed to abstinence, there are ways to better manage those feelings so you can stick to your goal. Also, if you have made a mistake in relationships, my book gives useful tips on how to start afresh and do it right”.
Sex interrupted has been described is an insightful, humorous and refreshing read.
