A few weeks ago I saw a few videos on planned parenthood. Essentially the videos I saw were trying to promote a documentary on exposing planned parenthood. To be honest, the videos did a good job with their goal.
Granted, the videos were most likely so heavily edited that it could promote some falsehood in the videos. I do understand the power behind video editing.
However, one video I saw was about Planned Parenthood explaining, promoting, encouraging “Torture Sex.” I do not want to get into Torture Sex with too much detail here. Just to clarify briefly what Torture Sex is, torture sex usually includes some kind of pain, not not limited to simply pain. A common acronym is BDSM which includes bondage, discipline, domination, submission, and those who enjoy giving pain, and those who enjoy receiving pain.
Why do I tell you all this?
In our sex saturated culture, this should not come as a surprise. Our culture’s idol is sex. Or to say it another way, the way we express our idolatry is through sex.
I have no doubt that I will be raising children in a sex saturated world. I have no reason to doubt that it will be worse than the world I live in–probably a lot worse. So, how do I respond?
Parents Know the Bible
Of course, you need to know what the Bible says. Your kids/teens will have questions. When the time comes for me to have the bird and the bees talk, I need to show them the goodness of sex in the Bible. When follow up questions occur, I need to point them to the Bible. When the time comes for me to explain different kinds of sexual desires, toys, etc, what does the Bible say?
I wish our culture was not so focused on sex. I wish I could change that. Sadly, our culture is not just sex saturated, but it is the abuse of sex.
