The Thank God For Sex Project is a COMMUNITY BUILT website filled with videos and written stories of individuals who’ve experienced religious sexual shame and who later learned that God never intended for them to feel that way. In their own words they tell stories of how, over time, they discovered a new way to relate to their bodies, sexuality and God.
These stories shed light on an array of circumstances; hurtful messages from society, pain from purity-movement churches, shame about bodies, fears of intimacy, abuse, confusion, etc. Most importantly, they show how people figured out a more affirming story about sex and what that story or new belief system is or is becoming.
