Timing and Chastity (1 of 2)

Posted by on Jun 22, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 3 comments

Chastity is kind of a joke Chastity belts… Up-tight prudes… But chastity used to be a virtue. It used to have more to do with good timing than suppressing sexual pleasure. If we dig past the up-tight parts, maybe we can unearth the helpful wisdom the word once carried. This is part 1 of 2. Have a listen, Doug 1. Subscribe to the podcast:  click HERE 2.

Religion and Sex: We’re in a Pickle

Posted by on May 11, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 1 comment

Christian Sex: Doubling Down on a Bad Hand Back in the 1960s, the sexual revolution presented an opportunity to Christians. It invited us to rethink the “dirty sex” instincts we picked up back in the second century. But that’s not what happened. Instead, church folk doubled down on a bad hand. Now, fifty years later, we don’t have much moral authority to speak about the subject. If we’re going to get out this pickle, we’ll have to… 1. revisit where we went wrong, 2. recover our ancient wisdom, 3. make...

Christians and Dirty Sex: Subtle Like Cancer

Posted by on May 4, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 4 comments

. Saying sex is dirty, is pretty uncool these days. So Christian folk don’t say it out loud. We’re much more subtle now. However, instincts as ancient as our dirty-sex ones, don’t go away easily. In our case, they just went underground. Which makes them harder to deal with, because we don’t see them (or their toxic results). Have a listen, Doug 1. Subscribe to the podcast:  click HERE 2.

Christians and Sex: We Owe Folks an Apology

Posted by on Apr 27, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 5 comments

. We’re Sorry! Through the centuries, we Christian folk have gotten pretty twisted up about sex. Most don’t know how it happened, which makes it really hard to get untwisted when we try. But we’re trying. You’ve probably never heard of Clement of Alexandria. He died way back in the second century, but he really messed us up. He’s still messing with our heads (and our beds).

How Sex Got Dirty (Thanks a Lot, Plato!)

Posted by on Apr 20, 2017 in Podcast: Sex Education | 4 comments

Church folk have a reputation for being sexually repressed. Thank goodness it’s not always true! But unfortunately it’s true often enough. All that sexual repression came from somewhere — and Greek philosophy played a major role. If we religious folk are going to have a place at the table as our society rethinks sex education, we have to come to grips with the toxic parts of our heritage. Have a listen, Doug 1.
