Male Strength Has Purpose and Should Not Be Suppressed

On his radio talk show Metaxas Talk, the evangelical Christian, author and public intellectual Eric Metaxas has made the case that feminism arose from a genuine problem on the part of men, namely the misuse of their male strength.  Himself a critic of feminism, however, Metaxas maintains that while the feminist’s diagnosis of the problem was cor...

Sexual Intensity Does Not Fix Intimacy Problems

When Lou was confronted about his use of Internet pornography, his excuse was that he was tired of the “vanilla” sex he was having with his wife, Roberta.  He claimed he needed more excitement in the bedroom.  This left Roberta feeling both angry and sad.  She felt as if Lou was blaming her for his pornography use.  She also felt inadequate...

Views on Healthy Sexuality: The World vs. The Church

It’s no secret that our secular society has become hostile towards religious views and beliefs.  People who follow most organized religions are viewed as ignorant and unenlightened.  This is especially true for Catholics.  Many believe the Catholic teachings on sexual morality are antiquated and places too much of a burden on people today....

Media Consumption Affects Your Sexual Arousal, for Better or Worse

The media we consume does have an impact on us.  Advertisers influence us every day.  They determine what we wear, eat, drive, and even smell like.  Just look at the polyester leisure suits men wore in the 1970s (or take my word for it, they were bad) and you will see how strongly we can be influenced by advertisements and fashions.

The Sexual Utilitarian Philosophy Your Kids Learn

For many teenagers, pornography is their primary source of sex education.  This is because the sex education they are getting at home and/or in school is inadequate.  They may learn about puberty, conception and birth, contraception and sexually transmitted diseases, but they learn nothing about God’s plan for sexuality and healthy relationship...

Healthy Sexuality for Couples Facing Sexual Addiction

When I work with couples facing sexual addiction, they often question how they should address being sexual in their marriage.  Some spouses may want to maintain their marital sex life and others may want to avoid it altogether.  While a healthy sex life is important for any marriage, when recovering from sexual addiction there is much healing nee...

Dear Father, Your Children Need the Truth about Sex

When I decided to become a Catholic I nervously approached a priest as he was coming out of the parish office.  I didn’t know any Catholics, but wanting in I thought I’d go to the father of the house.  He told me that since Vatican II it was not necessary for me to convert.  I didn’t know what Vatican II was, but when I went and read the d...

Sex Makes Men Sad

The late Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen begins his book Three to Get Married by drawing a distinction early on between sex and love.  He says the following: “[S]ex seeks the part; love the totality.  Sex is biological and physiological and has its definite zones of satisfaction.  Love, on the contrary, includes all of these but is directed to t...
