Something to think about My blog yesterday earned a heartbreaking response from a man who identified himself as “Just Another Sad Husband.” I think our exchange is a reasonably good read. Since I started writing about sex here and there in my blog, I’ve had people confess similar sorts of problems, and even a few..
“..come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control…” I’m blessed not only with a good wife, who has abiding contempt for feminism, but lots of female friends who hold toxic man-hatred in contempt as well. This is more or less a planned reality on my part, because..
Are we even allowed to love plant managers? I’ve written about this before, but during a conversation the other day about the role of sex in redemptive films, I thought of another way of illustrating it. Picture a father and his adult son pondering a serving of Atlantic lobster in a fine restaurant: Son: Drawn..
So there’s a film that can’t be finished, right now at least, because the director is alleged to be some sort of sexual predator and all the attention and speculation is giving the predator “health issues.” The details of this particular story, for the sake of my inquiry, don’t matter. This is just one of..
The Age of the Image Anyone else think it strange, or at least inadequately considered, that Hugh Hefner should receive a loving pop-culture send-off upon his death, just about a week before the news cycle was flooded with Harvey Weinstein’s tale of epic sexual harassment? On the one hand, we were invited to ponder Hefner’s..
More on Hefner & Church Chest Pounding There have been a few reactions, and some big-ministry commentary I found interesting in the wake of Hugh Hefner’s death, so for those of you who have sex all figured out, this might be self-evident, but I’m guessing that Margaret Meade neurosis-free sexuality is just as much in..
Disclaimer/Warning: I write about sex because I’ve found very few people write or talk about it with much honesty. If the topic makes you uncomfortable, go somewhere else. This won’t be titillating, but I try to make it honest. Consider the terms: “angelic temptress,” “holy playmate,” “virtuous sex kitten.” Can there be such a thing?..
I will avoid the temptation to render a judgment about films and books I haven’t examined and limit myself to this observation about the “50 Shades of Gray” phenomenon: the longing for sexual fulfillment, in this world, certainly does take many bizarre forms. Can we all agree on at least that much? As I write..
Two sweethearts find themselves in the middle of an awful argument. They are on the verge of breaking up. They really begin letting the insults fly. Finally the woman screams: “All you care about is my loving personality!” No? Doesn’t sound insulting? Well, maybe she yells: “You were just using me to hear..
The sunset fell across the courtyard at King’s Fish House last night in a way that glittered through a bottle of Chardonnay and made a big ruby jewel out of Mary’s wine glass. My granddaughter, Willy, one hand palm-flat to her cartoon canvas and the other holding a trident bundle of crayons, appeared to ponder..
