Single Desire: How Can I Be Sexually Alive?
Roughly half of all women enter their marriage bed having given away the gift of their virginity. And at a growing rate, many of them have had multiple partners—sometimes as many as 12-24. As I explain in detail within the pages of What Are You Waiting For: The One Thing No One Ever Tells You About Sex, the deep limbic system of the brain can’t physiologically handle that without a woman feeling depression. (In her teens this results in non-virgins being 12x more likely to attempt suicide than their virgin peers.) This can show up as an inability to be close to a fiancé or husband, a sexual repression, a sexual addiction, or the never-ending-daily-obsession to ask one-more-time for God to forgive a sexual sin long ago past. (If you have to keep asking, you should know you’re forgiven but you’re not healed.) The good news is that God has not left us without hope for healing.

Urban dictionary dot com defines friends with benefits as “two friends who have a sexual relationship without being emotionally involved.” But…scientifically…that’s impossible. Let me introduce you to the deep limbic system. The deep limbic system of your brain is the emotional center of you being. It, not your heart, is where your emotion is stored. This part of the brain also stores sexual memory. It gets tuned in to a splash of cologne, a great love song, and the physical act of sex. One of the nuerochemicals released during sex is dopamine. Dopamine makes you feel good; it creates a simultaneous sense of peace and pleasure. Anytime your body experiences pleasure—whether good or bad—the limbic system gets wash with this chemical, which causes you to crave more of what you just had. In essence, it creates addiction. Dopamine attaches you emotionally to the source of pleasure. Even if it’s “just a friend.” And there's more.
