Christian author Don Miller, who so ungracefully told men and women what they should do if they ever wanted to find love (and then deleted the posts when even Christians pushed back against his advice), wants to know why women “hook up”:
… I am curious about why some girls give up sex easily and whether or not they view their sexuality as a commodity. In other words, do you use sex for some kind of social power or to make yourself feel good?
So, you meet a guy, you have sex after a couple interactions, and you walk away. What did you gain from the experience and what, if anything, did you you lose?
Did it make you feel powerful? Did it make you feel beautiful?
I’m guessing he’s going to get a lot of responses from Christian women, but if you’d like to tell him your reasons for hooking up (or not, if that’s the case), I’m sure some alternative perspectives would be appreciated. Especially if premarital sex didn’t “damage” you in some way.
(Actually, I think he might also be surprised to hear from women who aren’t religious but have personal reasons for not hooking up.)
In case anyone’s wondering why he’s not asking men the same question, Miller responds, “All questions can’t be asked at the same time to all groups of people.”
***Update***: Miller asks for the guys’ responses here.
