I could be wrong.
But a “positive-sex” ethic that is reduced to arousal, attraction, and consent cannot stand on its own.
Maturity-wise, its like giving the keys of a car to a 10 year old to drive the car out in the city streets for pleasure and adventure. For those who support such immature acts and get hit by the kid, they're like, “What's the big deal about that? Love-pleasure hurts. We got to get a tougher skin.” This kind of approach will keep therapists and sex-therapists in business forever.
Relational-wise, its like putting Anthony Weiner in charge of teaching sex education classes for newlyweds. Pathology-wise, it's like employing Bill Cosby as a coach of the Olympic women's gymnastics team. Or, it's like Tinder anointing a compulsive white male sexualizer as a dispenser of wisdom for online dating advice.
In my first post, I briefly looked at Susannah Cornwall's appeal to integrate theology and sexuality with a term she created, “sexchatology.” She suggests that we need to see that our sexualities are not going to be eradicated in the new creation. Her appeal to wisdom urges us to take a “long view” toward our sexual choices and sexual relationships.
