#025: When Your Faith And Sexuality Clash with Frenchie Davis
February 19, 2018
Did you grow up in a religious family? Every religion has developed rules to try and regulate its followers sexual practices. But what do you do when your faith and your sexuality don’t align?
In today’s episode we are talking to Frenchie Davis about sex, spiritually and religion. A few things we discuss: what people get wrong about the bible, why most religions take such a dim view on sex, and the consequences of sex-negativity in religion.
Plus we’ll be talking about some of the work Frenchie and the Incarnation Institute of Sex and Faith (IISF) are doing to change how religious organizations view sex.
