Genital Shaming

    Hi Beloved,

    I have been thinking about this lately and I hope this thread will be an encouragement plus to edify.

    I realize that in our culture we have a lot of shame that comes with our genitals.  I say this because this is not only for one gender…this blanket both sexes.

    For example, how many times have Christians refused to call genitals what they are?  Instead of the penis, it’s called “That thing down there” or it won’t even be mentioned like it’s the villain from Harry Potter.

    For women, it’s even worse…”It’s dirty” or “Don’t touch that!”

    The media is even worse…Think about all the times you have watched a film and a guy gets hit in the testicles and this is considered humor.

    For us men, we are to be more preoccupied with our penis because it is external.

    With women, they are to ignore it because it’s internal.

    I wanted to encourage you to be thankful for how God created your genitals and be in awe of God’s handiwork.

    If you are feeling shame about them, ask God to heal your shame and find out the root of it.  Maybe this is programming growing up or culture as well.

    I encourage you to rejoice in how God made you because He is the great Creator.

    I will end with this video because women seem to struggle in this area the most:



    Two things;
    One, shaving those areas is preferense driven. Don’t let anyone shame you out of it.
    Two, many decades ago it took a very specific blade to trim stuff and it probably resulted in discomfort and blood. Today our technology produces great shaving products, creams, oils and sex toys that are safe. We also possess great baths, showers, pools, towels, soaps and many other great things to make sex a great clean experience in the marriage bed.
    Shaving is part of a modern society.
    Wives: never underestimate the power you have to turn on your husband by shaving.
    Men; shaving the boys is a delicate endeavor. Takes practice.
    To those who say it itches after i shave it….apply some lotion or light amount of oil. Shave it again on day 3. Keep it up. Go without underwear to bed. It will feel better. Or you can gradually shave it….

      Is it shame or are we forgetting the basic function of why we do things like shave, wear bras, cut our hair, brush our teeth?
