Additions, corrections to Greg Popcak’s book Holy Sex?

holy sex cover

Gregory Popcak and I were chatting the other day. He's thinking of writing a second, revised edition to his book Holy Sex!: A Catholic Guide to Toe-Curling, Mind-Blowing, Infallible Loving.   If you have read it, are there things you would like to see included in any future editions (certain problems addressed, topics discussed, sections refined)? Even if you haven't read it, are there things you would like to see addressed in a book that's intended to help people live the Catholic vis … [Read more...]

Is it easier for rich people to have big families?

Heart of money

David Mills is doing a little self-examination at Aleteia with A Marxist Lesson for Breeding Catholics: What is romance to the comfortable can be a burden to the poor and sick. Mills is a good and honest man, and has a knack for prodding our weak spots without excusing himself. I think he's only half right in this essay, though.His main thesis: Most of the Catholics writing about Catholic sexuality are resting comfortably in a place of privilege -- and they should knock it off. For a … [Read more...]

Ding ding! Your wife is ready. Sex Ed at the Fishers, part II

monitors

I've recently started using Marquette, and haven't yet formed the habit of putting the monitor away in the morning. (I haven't yet formed the habit of putting anything away, to be honest, but that's a separate problem.) This means that the kids keep finding it and going, "oooOOOOOoooo, what's THIS?" Because yeah, the new style monitor kinda looks familiar:  It's confusing, Bill. We're all confused.Nevertheless, as parents, we believe in Always Answering Questions, … [Read more...]

O mother, what is it to be a man? Sex ed at the Fishers

On the way home from a Scooby Doo birthday party, my punky little daughter suddenly says, "Mama, how do wimmin get preg-a-nent?"She is kid #7, and I honestly can't remember how much she already knows, so I start vague: "Oh, well, when a man and a woman love each other very much [shut up, that's a fine way to start this conversation!], one way they show each other that they love each other is they can put their bodies together in a very special way, and if the timing is just right, then the … [Read more...]

At Synod, Sex-Obsessed Catholic Church Finally Talks About Sex, Finally

o hai

It is stunning that the Bishops are talking about sex! As long as you are the kind of person who wakes up stunned to see the sun rise, stunned to find that you have feet at the end of your legs, stunned to discover that the floor under those feet is still made out of wood, just like it has been for decades and decades. Read the rest at the Register. PIC John Paul II waving … [Read more...]

Don’t be a sex sponge.

Most women bloggers have a loyal reader and commenter who can be described as "Issues Guy."  Like a dog has fleas, he's got issues with women -- and man, do they bite.My Issues Guy put himself right in the middle of this post on idolatry, in a tangential combox conversation which turned out to be far more interesting than the post itself  (even though the post itself had "foreskin" in the title!). Issues Guy described his perfect potential wife and marriage thus: The Plan Find a woman w … [Read more...]

Life is too short for bad sex with a good husband.

This is the greatest letter I’ve gotten in a million years. It’s from MightyMighty at Letters To Us. I’ve bolded the best lines. She mentions Greg Popcak’s excellent book Holy Sex, which I’ve been meaning to review for a long time; and also references the Real Catholic Love and Sex blog, which is full of good and honest discussions. Here’s the letter:I don't want to be a freaky fan girl, but would like to take a sec to tell you how awesome your book is. I read it during a loooooong period o … [Read more...]
