Preparing for Sexual Wholeness in Marriage

Preparing for Sexual Wholeness in Marriage

Dr. Jason S. Carroll

The myths of pornography are most clear when they are contrasted with the true foundations of sexual wholeness and complete intimacy in marriage.This session will discuss what healthy sexuality is, how pornography undermines true intimacy, and how young adults can prepare for a healthy,loving sexual relationship in marriage. Specific attention will be given to how commitment and exclusivity create a unique form of sexuality that can integrate spiritual meaning, emotional attachment, and physical responsiveness.
