This bit of fear mongering over no sex before marriage turned up on the Ladies Against Feminism website. It’s from a blog titled Loving Life at Home and is written by Jennifer Flanders. Jennifer goes on to take the term used to represent female enpowerment by the Spice Girls to push the Quiverfull ideas of no sex. She titled these scare tactics “Don’t Waste Your Girl Power” Somehow I don’t think the Spice Girls would approve of claiming that sex before marriage is playing Russian roulette in any part of ‘Girl Power’
This idea that is preached, that you are to be as sexless as a plastic molded Barbie doll right up until the moment someone slips a wedding ring on your finger. Then you are supposed to summon up the sexual talent to leap into bed to embrace a full physical intimacy. It’s a silly idea. Unrealistic since people cannot switch their sexualities on and off like lamps. Take the young inexperienced sheltered girls of Quiverfull and it adds another layer of impossible.
Sexuality does not act like dynamite or playing games with guns. Expressing your sexual self isn’t going to ruin your life or set you up to have a life of ill health or a horrible marriage. You cannot save up your, how did she put it? Vivacious energy? Nothing will be missing later if you express your own sexual needs.
Remember this, near everything taught about sex in Quiverfull is about as far from established truth, scientific, or psychological. This is pure poison.
