The Sexualization of America: Gouge Your Eyes Out

When talking with teens about sex and purity today in America, a youth pastor made a comment that might be interesting to parents: “Gouge your eyes out with a spoon.”

Interesting what it takes today to stay away from sexual enticement, from pornography, from erotic stimulus–gouge your eyes out.

Think what our teens face daily–hits from the movies, the internet, their phones, TV, advertisements…all selling or pushing sex.

As parents, what can you do to help your teens?  Check out your own viewing habits. Are they giving license to your teen to do whatever you’re doing? Restraint can start with you.
