Sex Miseducation – Marriage, Oppression and Sexual Rights

This is the 5th post in a 5 part series on sex mis-education Doesn’t Sex Only in Marriage Oppress Women? Some claim that purity and fidelity are based solely on protecting men’s property rights over their women.

Debunking Alfred Kinsey – Sex Miseducation

Part 2 of a 5 part series on sex miseducation The belief in sex as a need  is a dogmatic notion arising from the discredited claims of Alfred Kinsey. If sex is a need, such as food and water, we feel it’s an absolute necessity. This viewpoint creates a feeling of entitlement which blurs the relationship between sex and love. Research in the United States, for example, shows 3 percent have remained celibate throughout their lives. This represents hundreds of thousands of people. Millions worldwide have waited to begin sexual involvement until age thirty and beyond, with no proven ill effects….
