Where did sex come from?
What does the fact that sex came from God tell us about sex?
Is sex just a physical act? What kind of spiritual/emotional component is present?
When we desire sex, what ware we actually desiring? Is there a way to get what we desire outside of physical sex?
Things to keep in mind as you talk with your child about this:
This conversation is just as, if not more, awkward for them as it is for you. With that said, it’s also one of the most important conversations you’ll have with your child. Remember that in this conversation, you’re not just trying to keep your child from the negatives of sex outside of marriage, you’re also trying to paint for them a biblical picture of the greatness of sex within the context of marriage.
