Lady Gaga promotes celibacy

with one comment

Surprising coming from a mainstream artist these days, but here are her words:

“I can’t believe I’m saying this — don’t have sex. I’m single right now and I’ve chosen to be single because I don’t have the time to get to know anybody… So it’s OK not to have sex, it’s OK to get to know people. I’m celibate, celibacy’s fine.”

“It’s OK to be whomever it is that you want to be… You don’t have to have sex to feel good about yourself, and if you’re not ready, don’t do it. And if you are ready, there are free condoms given away at my concerts when you’re leaving! … I remember the cool girls when I was growing up. Everyone started to have sex. But it’s not really cool anymore to have sex all the time. It’s cooler to be strong and independent.”

The Divinity of Sex

leave a comment »

An interesting quote by Rich Heffern, posted by Andrew Sullivan on sex, on how Heffern believes both the liberal and fundamental approach to the topic is poor:

To say that sexuality is just an animal instinct, an obstacle to holiness, is to say that sexuality has nothing to do with our humanity. But in fact our sexuality is an integral part of our personal and interpersonal identities. From childhood it looms large in our lives, and we must deal with it one way or the other. Thomas Moore, in his best-selling book The Soul of Sex, writes:

“We have a habit of talking about sexuality as merely physical, yet nothing has more soul. Sex takes us into the world of intense passions, sensual touch, exciting fantasies, many levels of meaning and subtle emotions. It makes the imagination come alive with fantasy, reverie and memory. Even if the sex is loveless, empty or manipulative, still it has strong repercussions in the soul, and even bad sexual experiences leave lasting, haunting impressions.”

There is an ancient wisdom, even within the Judeo-Christian tradition, that maintains that sexuality is primarily spiritual, possibly the single greatest source of spiritual vitality in the human psyche. Sexuality is a mode of interaction with divinity. The Old Testament’s Song of Songs describes the relationship between Yahweh and humans in the most gloriously sensual and erotic images and poetry. Catholic mystic St. John of the Cross used sexual intimacy as the effective analogy for understanding intimacy with God. St. Augustine referred to the cross of Christ as a marriage bed, intimating that our sexuality has infinite redemptive dimensions.

3 Church Lies About Sex

leave a comment »

I don’t think I’ve ever been told any of these things by the church, but have encountered people who have thought some or all of these facts about sex due to their Christian communities.

They’re almost laughable when you think about it, but knowing that some churches actually preach this to their confused pubescent youth actually worries me.

New lipstick changes color when woman wants to have sex

leave a comment »

A new lipstick has been released that claims to changes from clear to red when a woman’s desire to have sex increases. Supposedly it works with the body’s chemistry, but if this really works, I see a lot of sexual harassment suits turning getting out oh hand.

“But your honor, her lips were RED!!”

yup, goes on the impractical things to buy list.
