The most devastating consequence of our new sexual morality is its impact on children. "Consenting adults" have unwanted children who are often abused, neglected or put into foster care. The murder of unwanted, but yet unborn, children is celebrated as an acceptable means of birth control. Welfare rolls increase.
What's the solution? We need to take a long, hard look at how we define sexual morality.
Sexual morality should also embrace the importance of long-term, loving relationships to our sexual health and well-being. We won't be perfect at it, but this should be the goal.
A couple, committed to each other, is less likely to sexually abuse each other, their (or other people's) children or view pornography.
A couple, committed to each other, is less likely to tolerate the immoral behavior of the famous and powerful.
But, you say, ‘That’s no fun! What a prude you are!"
"You might want to think so,” I reply. "But part of the lie that the "consent" folks have foisted on us is that sexual pleasure doesn't happen in long-term, committed relationships like marriage....but it can and it does."
