SL09263 The “LDS” Purity Myth [Partial]

The LDS Church has long advocated virginity and sexual abstinence until marriage. Has virginity become a type of cult? This paper will also explore the connection between chastity and pornography for both men and women. What happens when a woman’s primary value is sexual, through motherhood, wifedom, and chastity? Is there a way to defend your sexuality, take control of it, without breaking the commandments set forth? How should young women be taught about sex? What should they be taught about their bodies? How should single women live their lives without being nuns and burying sexual desires?
