Christian couple and influencers took social media as their platform to hold conversations that they see as essential for other Christians to learn about. They discuss topics like spiritual warfare, Christian dating, anger, and mental health issues. In one of their episodes, they talk about that one topic that most traditional churches shy away from – sex conversation.
And unlike the traditional churches, Preston and Jackie Hill Perry don’t hold back. They believe that Christians and the church should be the ones teaching people about sex.
“This sex conversation has to be more common,” Jackie said. “Because it’s a part of humanity, and I hate that the world is always the one leading the way in this conversation when they should not be. It should really be the church because we serve the God that created sex.”
God and Marriage
During their 30-minute podcast, they talked about the disappointments Christian couples face when they enter marriage. Jackie shared that most Christians only hear two sides about sex. One, sex should be avoided to be pure. And two, sex is awesome in marriage. But, unexpectedly, the latter does not always work that way.
Preston shared the side of men where he said that most men had ideals of what they wanted in their wives. And it includes not rejecting whenever they want to engage physically. But God has taught him what marriage really looks like.
“[God said,] ‘I’ve called you to enter into a marriage with a person for you to grow and learn how to satisfy this person. And it’s not just about what you want, what you need and desire.'”
Jackie supported the idea. Moreover, she confronted the idea of people “trying it out” before marriage. She said, “Marriage, again, is for us to learn one another. And so, like, even if you have experience with sex and sexuality outside of your spouse, that does not mean that that will actually please your spouse. Your spouse is their own person, so you have to learn this individual, and that takes humility, and it takes courage.”
Also, the mother of two clarified the purpose of sex in marriage in today’s society and culture. She said, “Growing up in this culture where pornography and pornographic images are so easily accessible, it makes sex and sexuality a matter of comfort and convenience. Rather than a thing that exists between two people in a covenant relationship so as to bring them closer together and intimate.”
