  • Ok, I actually read the article now. Honestly, eilizabiza, I don't see how the article or anyone else can tie the ways that "Sex is Damaged" to Christians. I was raised in a Christian household, I am still a Christian person, However I was also raised to believe that sex without love was not the way to go, but sex with someone you loved was amazing! And, I do talk with friends and family about sex (and yeah, most of them are Christian too), do I go into graphic details about me and my DH, no, but that has to do with respecting our privacy, lol. And, I would say the 10 books about lust versus one about sex is the publication industry paired with author's fault. And, as for the crayon box being small, I guess that box is defined by the individual! Because, I am and always have been a Christian, and I was born and raised to believe that Sex was a part of life, an awesome part when you were with the right person!

  • I thought this was a section for questions. Huh, guess I was wrong, because I do not see a question here.
    Oh, and by the way, Christians just like anyone else, can have amazing sex lives.
    If you are having problems in that area, I would say it is more likely the judgemental attitude you display here so nicely than it is a Christian damaging your sex life, lol.

  • I do not let my religion dictate my sex life, including BC. I am still in shock people actually will not use BC b/c their church is against, thinks it is a sin,etc. I would never in a million years want my pastor to discuss BC with me!lol

  • hmm...must be an old Christian problem. i dont know any young Christians that have damaged sex lives. or that have any problems that were listed in the article.

    and just a FYI, next time throw in a "what do you think about this?" so you will be asking a question...technically haha

  • Interesting. I encountered a lot of those things as a Christian - guilt, guilt and more guilt because that was the only context that sex was ever discussed in, to in force abstinence - it really is sad.
