Sex is something to be celebrated
I just wanted to share that Candace Cameron Bure, who made waves around the photo of her husband cupping her breast, is speaking out again.
“So sometimes there’s a skew about sex that — within the Christian community — that I get really sad about,” she said,… “Because if we are to promise ourselves for one another and preach saving yourself for marriage, then sex needs to be celebrated within marriage, and it’s not to be shameful.”
I think we should be glad that there’s a mainstream voice speaking our message. 🙂
I’m glad that she is being so candid with her speech. We need to combat the notion of “sex is best when you are single” or “marriage is the death of sex” or “Christians don’t do that” that we see so often. If the pose was reversed, and she had her hand on her husband’s chest there would be no out cry. But if her hand was in his crotch (or his in hers) there would be I would think. It is all context. All that being said, it his hand was a few inches higher or lower (say with his forearm in her cleavage rather than holding a breast) the same love could have been projected without the “offending” imagery.
Personally, I wouldn’t put my wife in that position in a public photo.
You beat me to it. Was going to post the story here myself.
Even though I wouldn’t have shared the picture she did I wholeheartedly agree with her stance here and am glad to see a prominent voice in the Christian community speak positively on married sex.
I read the article. Its sad that Christians are offended that she did what she did WITH HER HUSBAND!! As I’ve said time and time again on this board, married sex is the best sex and should be elevated, celebrated and encouraged everywhere. I pray her marriage remains strong and a beacon to all.
I’m not really sure what I think about this, to be honest. On the one hand, I agree with the sentiment in the article that sex is a good gift from God that we should enjoy within marriage, and Christian culture does sometimes get it wrong in its attitude towards sex. Having said that, some things should be kept private between a man and his wife and maybe it was unwise to post that particular photograph on the internet.
