I’m very grateful today that I don’t have to pay Shifty Shades of Nay any mind. Perverted sexuality doesn’t impress me. Anyone can plagiarize and twist someone else’s creation. Anyone can create a cheap spin-off and mass produce it for filthy profit. Anyone can attach like a parasite to something living and suck a little blood. This is all perverted sexuality is; a decrepit shadow of the original masterpiece.
God’s creativity takes my breath away. Sex as God intended pulsates with genius. Did you know that while penises differ in size, the erect penis has little size variation, thus making it unnecessary to ensure the parts will “fit” before the sacred commitment of marriage?
Sorry if you’re blushing, I just had to share that.
Did you know that the intense pleasure of sex can cause a “dopamine hangover” with attendant boredom and irritability, but that the oxytocin produced in close emotional bonding, such as found in a committed, monogamous relationship, helps ride out the ebb and flow of dopamine?
Did you know that the behaviors of pair bonding typically found in marriage—skin to skin contact, eye contact, kissing and cuddling—neurochemically protect against infidelity? That prolactin, the “monogamy hormone” increases in men with pregnant wives and subdues the effect of testosterone, the “prowling hormone”?
Did you know that science proves that when couples keep sex sacred, they tend to have happier lives, less mental illness, more vigorous physical health, more stable finances, and better sex?
In creating human sexuality God gave us a stunning metaphor of Christ’s love for the church. Like a tender plant it should be cherished and guarded from thoughtless, crushing boots. Like a great masterpiece it should be cordoned off from thieves. Like a kidnapped child it should be wrenched from the hands of greed and placed back in the loving care of the One who sacrificed to give it life.
