I'm preparing for a message in our Proverbs series which I'm entitling "Wise Sex." I am obviously going to espouse the biblical perspective, but I will be speaking to them as a married, male husband. We have a growing number of singles in our congregation, and I can speak from experience as a single guy, but obviously quite unprepared in one sense since I've never been a single woman.
Enter Dawn Eden. Dawn was a hipster New Yorker in the music journalism scene, living the Sex and the City lifestyle. Until Christ got a hold of her. Her book is a sassy and delightful call to chastity, in the vein of Lauren Winner's Real Sex Her video below gives the sassy and pointed message that a casual hook-up will have you feeling more lonely and dirty. There is a loneliness to chastity that becomes a godly waiting for God's provision of a mate, that is both harder and easier than settling for just anyone to share your bed on a Friday night.
