It isn’t easy being a guy today. Maybe it never has been easy, but today the
challenges to guys who want to be holy, who want to honor God with their
minds and bodies, seem tougher than ever. You live at a time and in a culture
that seems given over to sex. It is all around you and you can hardly avoid its
Everywhere you go today you are faced with temptations and, if you are like
most young men, have begun to give in to them. Perhaps you have only just begun
looking at pornography or perhaps you’ve been doing so for many years.
Perhaps you are struggling with masturbation, not really wanting to indulge
yourself but finding that it’s a whole lot tougher to quit than you would have
thought. Perhaps you are finding that, more than ever, sex is filling your mind
and impacting your heart.
This booklet is intended specifically for young men—those who are not yet
married but who hope to be married in the future. Maybe you are still single
or maybe you have found the woman of your dreams and are close to settling
down and building a life with her. Maybe she still seems a long way off. No
matter your situation, I want to use this short guide to help you discover God’s
plan for sex and sexuality. I want to help you track down the lies you have
believed about sex and I want to help you replace them with truth that comes
straight from God, the one who created sex for us.
