Providing Accurate Information and Sexual Education for Mormons and their Families
42: Celestial or Worldly Sex? Part 1
Gina Colvin of A Thoughtful Faith, interviews sex and marriage therapists Natasha Helfer-Parker and Julie de Azevedo-Hanks about Wendy Watson Nelson’s speech at the January 2017 Worldwide Devotional for Young Adults. Nelson’s address garnered some criticism for the unhealthy, purity-centered and confusing expectations that she constructed around sex. She argued that "Four Truths" should govern and inform marital sex. Helfer-Parker and de Azevedo-Hanks provide a frank critique of this advice. This is a co-production with Mormon Mental Health and Mormon Sex Info.
