Cosmic sexuality

Today one of my sisters-in-law is expected to give birth to her first child. I'll write this post in honor of that momentous event. Yesterday I watched videos by Teal Swan on the psychological split within women and men. Her words seeded my mind, and this post is a birth of verbal expression. Sexuality isn't …

Other men’s wives

April 25, 2016 (Kampala): I'm reading a book about Christians' ambivalence toward their bodies and their embodied existence. One test-case for me is my high level of uncertainty about hugging other men's wives in greeting. Take Jessica and Cindy, for example. I find them both fun and attractive, physically and otherwise. I like to talk …

Temptation

July 16, 2011: After lunch I went to a cafe to do some planning for work. After a while, an attractive girl about my age came and sat close by. She had tight pants on and a low-cut blouse and she talked with a sexy European accent. Her presence really threw me into turmoil. I …

Little girls

On May 9, 2010, I wrote the following: Being here with the X's, their beautiful houses and beautiful daughters, has stirred up all kinds of emotions I can hardly identify much less understand. I know this: I love girls...I wonder how God can use these desires? The best I could guess would be that I …

Forbidden fruit

November 22, 2010: In the theater [in Kampala during one of our breaks] I was sitting next to several very beautiful Ugandan women and was reminded how quickly a man could be led astray. Occasionally the woman beside me would brush my arm or leg, and her touch was electrifying. The sweetness of forbidden fruit …
