Secondly, I worry some of the content may be a bit intense for her. I would have to encourage her to focus with working on the deck, I think, and not attempt to navigate chapters about Sex Magick, etc.

Then again, nothing is probably more frustrating than the loss of the original creator's intent. This is a serious factor to consider, as I wasted over 5 years of my life with Arrien before buying the Book of Thoth.
DuQuette does a lot to dispel many of common misconceptions about Crowley and his deck, including all the Sex Magick stuff. If your friend comes from a Christian background it's best to get these out of the way first, before hearing second-hand rumours about how wicked Crowley was, how perverse, etc.
