Porn: The Worst Way to Learn About Sex
Last edited 5th May 2015

Depending on the household you grew up in, sex may or may not have been talked about a lot. For some, it’s commonplace. It might come up at the dinner table, your uncle who hits the eggnog pretty hard at the family Christmas parties might make jokes about it, or you might have grown up seeing sexually suggestive scenes on popular shows on the television in the living room.

What's Thrilling About Chastity?
Last edited 31st March 2015

Dawn Eden writes about chastity as someone who’s struggled to achieve it. Her struggles were rooted in more than just original sin; she was sexually abused as a child, suffered from her parents’ divorce, and in her loneliness, found herself lapping up the nonsense preached by today’s sex-crazed and confused culture.

Our Emotions, Our Bodies, Ourselves
Last edited 10th March 2015

“Women’s fertility is a sign of health, not of disease; a source of power. But they are under constant pressure to restrain it, to apologise for getting pregnant, and to suppress their anger and fear at being cheated (as increasingly they are) of its natural flowering.”

Should I tell my Girlfriend About my Addiction to Pornography? I’m Afraid She’ll Leave Me.
Last edited 5th March 2015

Should tell your girlfriend about your porn problem, or should you continue to conceal it? I say neither. Instead of telling your girlfriend that you are hooked on porn and risk losing her, get rid of the porn, and tell her what you’ve done for love of her. If you truly love her, then you know that love is capable of very heroic acts. As I once read, a knight cannot be brave unless he has love. His love gives him his courage.

Chesterton. He was an incurable romantic, and spent years of his life wooing his wife, Frances - long after he was married to her, in fact.

Courting vs. Dating | What's the Difference?
Last edited 9th February 2015

There are lively debates around courting vs dating. The concept of courting may sound outdated to some in our modern world. When hearing the term, many have images of their grandparents being chaperoned by their parents with their special someone. In those days, courting was about getting to know your potential partner as much as possible in a safe, pure environment. Often, these courtships led to successful marriages that lasted lifelong.
