Virgins for life?
Tired of movies that are all about people having sex? Well “Virgins for Life” is about teens who have decided to wait until marriage to have sex. This is an “ironic sex comedy” that is seeking to bring the redeemed view of sexuality to film and media that this world desperately needs. Please support the cause so that this movie can be made to inspire and encourage people who are waiting for the...

jedbrewer: Anonymous asked: I know that I’m not supposed to have sex before marraige, but I’m not sure I really understand why. The boy I’m with is christian too, and we try and follow the bible in other ways but with sex- I’m the only one to question it and often say no. His argument is always ‘we’re…
How many movies are out there about a guy in high school who is desperate to lose his virginity before he graduates? A lot, right? And how many movies are there about high schoolers who don’t want to lose their virginities? None. And the movies that do feature characters like this make them out to be socially-awkward, condemning freaks. It seems like any character who wants to wait...
An Exploration of Sex as God Intended It
Sex is the physical manifestation of the marriage covenant. We pledge in marriage to give our lives to just one person, so in turn they are the one person we give our bodies to in the most intimate way. Just as in marriage, we promise to become with a person, never to separate from them, sex truly molds us into that one being. To have sex outside of marriage is to bring two into one flesh...

leeyounger: Anonymous asked: I have friends who are engaged and already having sex. They are Christians, and they say there’s no verse in the Bible that says pre-marital sex is wrong, and it’s okay because they’re getting married anyway. Is that true? Does the Bible talk about it specifically? ..

Some of my friends were making fun of me that I don’t do that and I didn’t have a good enough answer of why I don’t. To me, that kind of “dancing” is disrespectful, but I was wondering…

“So for this post I’ve decided to discuss something a lot of my friends who don’t wait and I disagree on. For a lot of them sex before marriage is okay, as long as you aren’t sleeping with every person they meet, where as I think that having sex with anyone except your spouse is not okay…”

An Open Letter to Entertainers
Dear Entertainer, Now I understand that you got it. Oooh, you got it, alright. So naturally, you want to flaunt it. Why cage up your natural, God-given voluptuousness when the whole world can see, and hey, maybe you can boost album sales while you’re at it. But entertainer - you’re better than that. Actually, no, you’re more than that. You’re more than your six pack...
One of the members of the Redeeming Sexuality team - Keri - is starting out a segment on our Blogger, all about the perspective of practicing abstinence from someone who is now married and waited until she was married to have sex. She’ll be taking questions and such, but her first post is her background story. You can check it out here - http://redeemsexuality.blogspot.com/ , and I hope...

dazzledbycarrie asked: I'm loving this blog. I was wondering if you had anymore Christian themed blogs to recomend?
consummation (n.) - the point at which something is complete or finalized. Such a powerful definition. Such a beautiful definition, too. When thinking of that in regards to sex - doesn’t it make sense that consummation would take place once a couple has been married? To “consummate” the relationship at any other time just doesn’t make sense, if we’re going by that definition. And if you...
I Corinthians 6:12-20
I Corinthians 6:12-20 A wealth of sexual knowledge in these several verses, let me tell ya. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord. Because our bodies are members of Christ. For we were bought with a price. Pretty much, we owe it to God to keep ourselves pure. Think of it as paying the dues for this new, cleansed body that God has leased out to us - the body that is His,...
Why is Chastity Important? →
It is not a repressed repetition of “no” but a continual “yes” to Jesus. Mary offers the perfect example of love and obedience by saying “Let it be done to me according to thy word.” (Luke 1:38). The more we imitate her “yes,” the more joy and peace we will let into our lives. If we are unable to say “no” to sex, what is our “yes” really worth?

thoughts on sexualizing 17 year olds
I was flipping through a magazine waiting for Chanelle’s tires to be changed when I came upon this Marc Jacobs’ Lola perfume ad. I immediately recoiled, wondering if I my repulsed feelings were justified or was it just me overreacting? Okay, I don’t care how old you are but I seriously think sticking a giant perfume bottle in your vagina area is just like, not okay. But...

Virgin fo' Life
Most people who are waiting until marriage to have sex have gotten that infamous question: “Well what if you never get married? Will you just not ever have sex?” Even better is a variation of this question that my cousin asked me, “What if you don’t get married until you’re 50? Will you not have kids until you’re 50?” To which I mentally responded,...
Okay, so you’re waiting until marriage to have sex. You’re cool with it. Your parents are cool with it. Your best friend’s cool with it. God’s definitely cool with it. But everyone else - not so cool with it. And it’s not just that they don’t understand you’re decision, which is one thing, but they’re lampooning you for it. Arguing you down...

kosmicwheel asked: The gynecologist isn't just for sex related issues. Cancer checks, smear tests, infections ... all of these things need to be regularly checked. Sure not having sex decreases your risk of infections, but cancer is really common in young people regardless. Regular check ups are not "awkward" especially for people who are comfortable with their body. I'm fine with peoples life...

Anonymous asked: basically youre saying why you dont like having sex is because you dont want a kid. errr use condoms and bc. DUH sex is a great work out and fun. try it out before you preach about why you shouldnt have it.
That’s the theory I have right now. I mean, I haven’t taken a math class in almost five years, but I’m pretty sure I’m onto something with this equation. And I don’t care if sexualizing isn’t a word according to my spell check, because it needs to be. Because let me tell you what happens to me when I see an attractive boy without his shirt on. First off,...
“All things are lawful for me, but not all things are helpful. All things are lawful for me, but I will not be enslaved by anything. Food is meant for the stomach and the stomach for food - and God will destroy both one and the other. The body is not meant for sexual immorality, but for the Lord, and the Lord for the body. And God raised the Lord and will also raise us up by His power. ...

“Flee fornication.” I Corinthians 6:18 Dictionary.com defines fornication as follows: “Voluntary sexual intercourse between two unmarried persons or two persons not married to each other.” So you were saying? Oh, wait, wait, wait! Your translation says “flee sexual immorality.” And apparently “sexual immorality” is vague and can mean anything. ...
"Redeeming Sexuality" is all inclusive!
I just wanted to address and reiterate that this movement is for everyone. Maybe you’re a single, young virgin, like myself, who made the decision to practice abstinence back when you barely even knew what sex was and is continuing to stick with it. Or maybe you’re a single, young virgin who did make that decision, but now you’re having second thoughts as to whether or not you...

You gotta know why you’re doing it. When it becomes just another rule you feel like you have to follow because that’s what everybody’s been telling you - well, then, that can be easily uprooted. But when you understand everything about that choice. Why God calls us to it and why it’s important to you and what reasons you want to wait beyond just “that’s what...

The correlation between modesty and sexuality
Does anybody else remember when Britney Spears first hit the scene, back around 1998/1999? I was in 4th grade, attending Christian school, and everybody was freakin’ out about her outfits…because they bared her middrift. Maybe it was growing up around that conservative Christian community, but no, there has been a definite decline in modest dress over the past decade. Well, if you...
