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..

If you are under 18 years old, get your parents’ permission to read this. It’s not explicit, but I do give advice, and that’s your parents’ job… Just to be clear, I want to make sure you all know what this is not — an ode to Hugh Hefner. Matt Walsh, Ben Shapiro, and others..
Hugh Hefner died this week. It’s not fake news. Three different women in my life blurted out the same words, almost immediately upon hearing it: “good riddance!” Another female friend of mine on Facebook had a different reaction. She loved Playboy magazine, the interviews, the advertising, the cartoons, the Vargas girls and the photographs of..
I’m finally getting around to reading Puritans at Play by Bruce C. Daniels. It’s been in my library for a decade or more, and right from the start it speaks to a concept I’ve struggled with, in one way or another, my entire life. The New England Reverend Benjamin Colman called it “Sober Mirth” —..
..with free advice to women on the subject of being irresistible At age 56, having raised six kids, having been married happily to the same woman for 28 years, having endured the 1980s dating scene, (and even a toxic gauntlet of man-killing feminist Stanford coeds), having come back to Christ, having studied God’s word, I’ve..

This will keep church ladies of both genders from exploding. On second thought, better not..
Words You Might Not Hear in Church A few ways to make peace in the pitched battle between the sexes.. A girl I dated in high school pointed out a guy across the room at a party one night and she said: “he’s prowling. He’s on the hunt. You can just tell. It’s gross.” I..
Can we really build the Kingdom of Heaven with men so bloodless they have never desired a woman? If denying ourselves for Christ were as simple as embarking on a starvation diet, the Kingdom would be built by a legion of ecstatic virgins, stammering repentance as their flesh failed them. Sleepless, sexless, bloodless, without limbs..
I’m fairly certain that when women consider male sexuality, there’s a very thick layer of pure disgust baked into the cake. A friend of mine told me his wife caught their son looking at pornography and her reaction was a mixture of outrage and loathing. She was disgusted with both him and the images. I’m..
A Collective Repentance In “The Reader” (2008) Kate Winslet plays a German woman facing trial for her small part in the Nazi extermination regime, but for the first 30 minutes of the story you would be tempted to conclude it was all bound to be a story about an older woman sexually initiating a younger..
