LDS Gals learning to embrace sexuality

God created our bodies to enjoy sex – what's not to enjoy?

Nice to see young people speaking up!

A friend shared this link on Facebook, “Abstinence is unrealistic and old-fashioned”.  It was nice to see young people speaking up for what they believe, even when it flies against the perceived “norm”.  I was bothered by the comments attributed to the health teacher and loved some of the sarcastic remarks from Matt concerning her views – like this one “So, Mrs. Health Teacher has singlehandedly declared sexual morality dead, has she? With one scoff and wave of her wand she’s buried thousands of years of insight into the topic? Anyone who advocates such things must be “old” and “out dated”?

And then Matt goes on to say  “God forgive me, I’m not old-fashioned at all. I don’t think you are, either. Truth only seems old-fashioned nowadays because we’ve grown so accustomed to deceit and manipulation. But Truth is eternal, so it can never be old or new. It never ‘was’ or ‘will be.’ It just ‘is.’ It always ‘is.’ Truth never grows old, and if you believe in it and try to live by it, you will always be, in some ways — the only ways that matter — the youngest, freshest, most energetic rebel on the block.

So here’s the point, Jeremy:

Our culture tells a lot of lies about sex. Your teacher is one of the liars.”

What are your thoughts on this post?  Did you like Matt’s response to Jeremy?  Do you agree with Matt? Is it weird for young people to want to wait until marriage before they have sex?  Is it unrealistic and old-fashioned to think sex belongs in marriage and should not be a “casual” activity?  Is this health teacher’s lessons on sex an example of what is being taught to our youth these days?  How can we counter these kinds of messages and teachings, yet at the same time teach our youth a positive perspective about sex within the proper bounds of marriage?
