Summary

Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing is a groundbreaking resource that explores the "why" behind self-destructive sexual choices. The audiobook is based on research from more than 3,800 men and women seeking freedom from unwanted sexual behavior, be that the use of pornography, an affair, or buying sex.  

Jay Stringer's original research found that unwanted sexual behavior can be both shaped by and predicted based on the parts of our story - past and present - that remain unaddressed. When we pay attention to our unwanted sexual desires and identify the unique reasons that trigger them, the path of healing is revealed.  

Although many of us feel ashamed and unwanted after years of sexual brokenness, the audiobook invites the listener to see that behavior as the very location God can most powerfully work in their lives. Counselors, pastors, and accountability partners of those who experience sexual shame will also find in this audiobook the deep spiritual and psychological guidance they need to effectively minister to the sexually broken around them.  

Contains mature themes.

Best book on sexually compulsive behavior!

Especially for a counselor, coach, group leader or therapist this is the best material for helping folks who struggle that I’ve ever encountered . And I’ve and I’ve encountered a lot podcasting on the topic of sexual addiction a.k.a. sexually compulsive behavior via my podcast Attitudes of sexual integrity since 2005. Because I’ve been doing it so long and have had so many guests It usually ranks in the top five under keyword “sex addiction” on iTunes.
I say that to make you aware of the fact that I consume more of this material then the average person. I’ve read a lot and listened to a lot of material on this topic over the years. As the show grew in popularity I’ve had authors send me books and publicists Suggest many books and guests over the years. Jay’s Unwanted includes stories and is both clinical and inspirational. As a podcaster approaching this from a Christian perspective I can honestly say this is the best book on the topic so far. I’ve interviewed Jay on two occasions once before writing the book and once after. Met him through my friend and friend of Jay’s here in the Seattle area Seth Taylor who wrote Feels Like Redemption, Another great book on the topic. Jay Stringer is full of knowledge, compassion and expertise a must for those who struggle and/or help people who do. Five Stars!

Groundbreaking, Revolutionary

This book takes on a very difficult topic in our society: sexual brokenness and unwanted sexual behavior. The author uses a very different approach than most books on this topic and allows the reader to see these topics and struggles in a whole new light. I definitely recommend reading this book, especially if you struggle with unwanted sexual behavior and/or experienced any type of sexual abuse or parental neglect.

Good start but the author doesn't understand...

I had hope for this book and think the author may have a valid point but I'm having trouble finishing the book because the author is showing he doesn't understand female sexuality.

For example, he cites male anger and desire for power over women as the root cause of porn, then he goes on to say that women are the ones watching the most violent and submissive porn... which he then admits he doesn't understand why!

If he'd just spend time observing which men women actually are attracted to he'd find that they are the leaders. They are the assertive men. This passive male role is one reason why women are asking "where are all the good men?"

I'm not sure it's worth the time to bother finishing a book by what I'm suspecting is a cultural and feminism influenced instead of Biblically influenced author (e.g. David Pawson or Dr. Miles Munroe). If I finish the book and find different I'll update my review.
