Talking Tuesday

Tuesday, March 11th, 2014

TalkingTuesdayShare your thoughts, feelings, and stories as well as respond to others regarding these questions:

Do you find it difficult or uncomfortable to discuss sex … as a married person, a young adult curious about sex, a parent trying to approach the topic with your child, etc.? Why or why not?

I’ll get us started …

Recently this topic has been coming up a lot in my conversations. Mostly the discussion has been around the ability to discuss or find resources related to marital sex from a Christian perspective whether it be to try and improve a struggling sex life, learn the basics of fulfilling sex, or learning healthy ways to spice things up. The word sex in the Christian community seems to make people either squirm or run for the hills. This seems so backwards to me because God is the Creator of sex, not just for procreation but for pleasure, so why are we the ones ashamed to talk about it? This is something I want to dive deeper into via a series of articles on Foundation Restoration, but I am really curious to hear from you all what your experience has been with the topic. Do you feel you have someone or somewhere to discuss sex within a biblical context and without shame or guilt?

Okay, it’s your turn!
