So, you got a postcard and you’re not sure what to do with it. You’re not sure if you should be upset OR intrigued?
Or, your neighbor got a postcard and you don’t know if you should talk to them about it OR never make eye contact again.
When it comes to talking about sex, I know two things for sure – it’s everywhere, and we’re confused.
- It’s everywhere. I just read that 70% of all TV shows now contain some sexual content. (Not to mention that advertisers have learned a long time ago that “sex sells”.) Try listening to the radio for more than 10 minutes and I’d be surprised you didn’t hear the subject come up more than once. Hey, I can’t use the public restroom without learning something on the stall door OR even check out at the grocery store without a half dozen magazines trying to capture my attention with outlandish headlines OR made over photos.
We have to come to terms with the fact that “sex” is everywhere. (And, if you’re not paying attention to it – well, your kids are.)
Because it’s everywhere, there’s alot of different ideas about it too.
-We’re confused. Because we’ve never stopped to ask bigger questions about sex, we tend to go with what seems right. But when there’s confusion, it only leads to more and more deviations from the original design. Just this morning I heard that there are 116,000 internet searches for “child pornography” – every day! And the largest group of internet porn users – 12-17 year old boys. It’s more than this too – it’s the stuff we consider “normal” sexual behavior that we’re so confused by what is really happening between two people. (We’re WAY MORE than just mammals.)
I believe that God created us and he created sexuality. And, if he designed it all, then he had a purpose and he better understands than anyone else how it should best be enjoyed. ‘
This is why we’re talking about it.
This is why we took the risk on a postcard.
This has the potential to completely change everything
