|The look of Love in his eyes.......|
I've been thinking a lot about sex lately.....insert funny, middle aged single girl joke here. Laugh it off...now....focus......alright; now that we have that out of our system.........
It started a week or so ago, when the Valentine's Day Movie on tv was "Pretty Woman". At first, I was a bit startled.....then it got under my skin. Pretty Woman? Really?
Do you think that prostitution is every girl's dream job? Do you think that girls out there currently selling themselves for money or out of fear or coercion, have true job satisfaction?
Do we wonder why 20 million people world wide are victims of Human Trafficking? Do we wonder why 68% of young men and 18% of young women look at porn weekly?
If you are continuing to wonder....let me tell you.....WE ROMANTICIZE PROSTITUTION. WE ROMANTICIZE SEXUAL AGGRESSION.
88% of scenes in porn films include sexually aggression. Is this the sex ed we want for our kids? (http://www.covenanteyes.com/2013/02/19/pornography-statistics)
I went to a movie with a friend on Monday.....How to be Single....and it was funny, for the most part, I enjoyed it. But I also have the ability to look at the bigger picture of it all, and understand that these standards of casual sex, and drinking so much so we don't know who we are sleeping with, are unhealthy, and unrealistic....when trying to care for, and protect your heart....your soul.
We live in a society that believes that "50 Shades of Grey" is romance. Shortly after the book came out, I read a review on it, written by a social worker. The SW concluded, that if this had been written in someone's case file, it could in some instances be considered abuse.
Playboy did an interview with John Mayer...here is a piece of it:
