A candid discussion with sex and marriage therapists Natasha Helfer-Parker and Julie de Azevedo-Hanks about Wendy Watson Nelson’s speech at the January 2017 Worldwide Devotional for Young Adults. Host is Gina Colvin and this is a co-production with A Thoughtful Faith.

Nelson’s address garnered some criticism for the unhealthy, purity-centred and confusing expectations that she constructed around sex.  She argued that Four Truths (below) should govern and inform marital sex. Helfer-Parker and de Azevedo-Hanks provide a frank critique of this advice.

WARNING:  There is explicit content and language in this episode.
