Exposing the Deeper Meaning Behind Sexual Thoughts
Fifty Shades of Grey is a publishing and cultural phenomenon – the series hit the $20 million sales mark in the United States this summer, surpassing records set by both The Da Vinci Code and Harry Potter. Though these healthy book sales have spiked the online sale of whips, chains, and other BDSM-related paraphernalia, some dare to question how healthy a super dose of sexual fantasy is for readers. When does sexual fantasy cross the line from healthy to harmful?
Best-selling author, speaker and counselor Shannon Ethridge, has penned a book to answer this and other questions about sexual fantasy in The Fantasy Fallacy: Exposing the Deeper Meaning Behind Sexual Thoughts (Thomas Nelson Publishers, October 2012).
Ethridge explains how some sexual fantasies can become harmful, particularly when acted upon with others. “Fantasies which push the envelope beyond what is socially or spiritually acceptable are most often rooted in childhood trauma or unresolved pain. The goal of this book isn’t to judge whether fantasies are ‘right or wrong,’ but to help people examine sexual fantasies closely enough to recognize their roots and help them heal their pain.”
The Fantasy Fallacy invites readers on a journey into the deeper meaning of sexual fantasy. Ethridge suggests that sexual fantasies reveal one’s interior motivations, fears and desires. Exposing the memories and meanings behind sexual thoughts, she explains, can remove the impulse to act on every imagination. The result of this insightful examination is the road to relational peace, emotional rest, and sexual fulfillment men and women really desire.
