Apparently, Women Love It When You Begin a Date by Saying a Prayer

Guys, want some advice?

Begin each of your dates with a prayer. It’ll make the ladies swoon.

At least that’s what I took away from this clip from an old teen dating forum featuring Christian apologist Josh McDowell.

Campaigner Against Fifty Shades Movie Claims That S&M Games Are “Brutality” — “No Woman Wants That”

It always amazes me that busybodies like Ohio activist Lynn Stevens don’t simply say “Thanks, that’s not for me.” Instead, their goody-goody view seems to be, “I don’t like it, and other people shouldn’t either.”

Lynn Stevens has been watching in horror as her friends make plans to see Fifty Shades of Grey, a film that tells the story of a recent college graduate involved with a man who introduces her to sadomasochism. “My stance is empowering women, not overpowering women,” said Stevens, who directs We Are Cherished Ohio, a group that takes the Christian message to women who work in the sex industry.

The film… “glamorizes and glorifies domestic violence” and creates a romantic image of a man who abuses and manipulates women, she said. “And that’s not a love story in any sense of the word.”

It certainly can be to people of either gender who safely and consensually engage in dominance and submission.

By the way, have you ever heard of BDSM aficionados visiting churches or prayer groups, trying to convert people away from plain-vanilla sex? Me neither. Why does this type of meddling only work one way? Why is it OK for Stevens and her posse to do what they would find offensive if it were done to them?

Check Out This Trailer for a Fascinating Documentary About How Evangelical Christians Deal with Sex

If I asked you to describe evangelical Christianity, “sex-negative” would undoubtedly be near the top of the list. The culture that embraces purity rings, and abstinence-only sex education, and compares women who have fooled around to a glass of spit-up food that no one would want to drink has warped a lot of people’s minds about what constitutes healthy, safe sex.

A few years ago, I posted about a Kickstarter campaign for a movie all about the relationship between Christianity and sex.

That movie — Give Me Sex Jesus — is finally premiering later this month (at least a version of the final film, anyway) and will hopefully be available to view online soon.

Check out this trailer:

Can You Guess In Which States Fifty Shades of Grey Is Already a Box Office Success?

From Time, proof that smut and Christian fundamentalism get along just fine:

Excitement over the highly-anticipated film Fifty Shades of Grey is heating up in places few could have guessed. According to online box office Fandango, ticket pre-sales in Mississippi, where until recently it was actually illegal to sell sex toys, are four-times higher than the site expected.

And the Magnolia State isn’t the only Southern locale where pre-sale tickets are selling rapidly. In Arkansas, West Virginia, Kentucky, Louisiana, and Alabama — where the sale of sex toys is still banned – pre-sales are double what sellers expected.
