Marc Barnes, aka Bad Catholic, is working hard to bring sexy back:
Well, because we’re 21st century kids. And as such, we’ve had delivered to us a world with sky-high rates of divorce, abortion, and STDs; a world bored with sex and bored with romance; a world in which more and more people are turning to pornography to find sexual satisfaction; a world in which 1 in 5 women report being sexual assaulted, and the human body — the sexiest thing in the universe — is used to sell cars.
After extremely little consideration, we decided we don’t want that. We want awesome relationships and mind-blowing sex lives. We want women and men to be respected and loved for who they are, to the very depths of their being. We want sex free from fear, love free from use, and a world of people who love and respect their own bodies. In short, we want sexy back. In fact, we demand it.
1Flesh means just that. One flesh. Total union. No wrapping men in rubber or pumping women with artificial hormones. No interrupting the act of making love. Once the sex act became something in which women were “controlled” and men were “restrained” everything seemed to fall apart. Suddenly “objectification” wasn’t such a hard thing to do. Instead of repeating the mistakes of our parents, we’re trying to spread words of rebellion; that sex should be awesome, that pregnancy can be justly avoided withoutharmful chemicals, and that love is worth fighting for.
So I’m begging you, make this happen. If I’ve ever written a post that you haven’t wanted to kill me for, well now you can fist bump me through the Internet.
Share the website. Share it on Facebook, email it to your friends, post it on your blog — you know the drill. This isn’t a Catholic website, so don’t be scared to get it out of the Catholic world.
Help us out. Do you make sweet graphics? We need you. Can you make kinetic typography videos? We need you. Can you blog? We need you. Have a story about ditching artificial contraception? We need you. Email us and let us know.
Donate to us. This cost a crap-ton, and I have no more money. (No easy way to say that.) I truly believe that the actions of this website, with God’s grace and your help, will create a shift in popular opinion towards the issue of artificial contraception. I’d like to think we’re a worthy cause.
He's got more. Lots more.
And it's all about sex.
You know you want to go there.
