Purity Culture and Sexual Band-Aids (BDSM, Rape Fantasy, etc)

Purity Culture and Sexual Band-Aids (BDSM, Rape Fantasy, etc)

Purity Culture and Sexual Band-Aids (BDSM, Rape Fantasy, etc)

I talked about this a little in my book which is linked below, but I have observed a significant amount of people impacted by purity culture being drawn towards BDSM, Rape Fantasy, and other things that I would classify as sexual band-aids given the circumstances.

An Atheist and A Christian Coming Together: Episode 1

My friend Raymond and I have started a new podcast. It is also up on iTunes and Stitcher! I got a bit uppity on this one so there is a language warning. Here is the synopsis:

“An Atheist and a Christian come together to discuss social issues in the world. We want to show everyone that a solitary belief does not make a person and that we are more alike than we think. No-holds barred, we talk about EVERYTHING, and we discuss topics from our entirely different backgrounds.”

Here is the episode synopsis:

“Today on our very first episode, Rebecca and I talk about the good that men do, silly things that we see on social media, gun culture and lots more. Come on in and have a listen. Rebecca and I plan to run this every week, airing on a Sunday night. We plan to show others that two people of different walks of life can have more in common than we are different. Tune in, judge for yourself.”

Book Store Placement, Upcoming Podcast, and a Guest Post!

Hi folks!

So some weeks ago I had a few of my wonderful readers ask me to respond to a Washington Post piece called, “I’m a 32-year-old virgin, and I’m living the feminist dream.”

It took me some time but I finally got all my thoughts typed up and you can find them here over at Iron Ladies: Chastity for Feminism’s Sake?

I also wanted to let you all know I am recording a podcast episode with Deeper Waters on Saturday but you can see some of the details of that here before it happens: Deeper Waters.

As for my own podcast, my husband is working in his spare time to edit new episodes for The Scarlet Virgins Podcast. If you like my book or haven’t read it yet, you can go check the podcast out and see what I’m all about. I also did some updating to this website so that you can see all of my books in one place and see any upcoming projects on the book tab once we have an estimated release date.

We had a huge breakthrough with The Scarlet Virgins this week as I checked one of my major goals off the list: placing it in a physical book store. If you would like to support me by purchasing it from that store, it is Full Circle Bookstore in Oklahoma City.

While I was signing the copies over (with shaking hands), I realized they had a local musician playing. It was so good that I genuinely thought it was a CD playing, but it was actually live music. He was playing my favorite song and combined with the swirling emotions from handing over the books, I nearly cried. I wanted to give this guy a shout-out because his music is amazing! You can go to his website here, Youtube, Instagram, and Twitter.

Here is one of his videos:

That’s all the updates I have for you now, but I’ll have a few more in the coming weeks!

The Legalistic Purity Culture and Abuse

Today I am over at Godwatch Live today talking about Christian purity culture, abuse, and shame.

“Is Christian purity culture robbing people of intimacy through shame? Rebecca refuses to sit back while people suffer.”

What About Masturbation?

The Scarlet VirginsMasturbation is a taboo subject, sometimes even in secular culture. But if we never talk about it, we inadvertently add unnecessary shame to the topic. Most of us have learned that the Bible says it is wrong, but what does the Bible actually say about it?  In this episode, Rebecca talks about relevant Scripture on the topic, practical things to consider, and he own thoughts on the matter.
