Jordan Davis replied to Mike Hostetler's discussion A New Way To Think About Sex in the group Christian Men
"I'd recommend listening to some Matt Chandler sermons for some great exposition on the topic. There is a series about masculinity that defines it specifically in Biblical terms rather than by secular minds (as in the case of this website). I…"

A New Way To Think About Sex

This article on my denomination's community site is extremely well-thought out and reasoned. Essentially, just saying that sex should wait until marriage is not enough -- healthy sexuality should be taught before and during married life.Here is a better quote:What we communicate by simply saying “wait to marriage” for sexual…See More

A man and his delusions

Posted on September 18, 2009 at 3:24pm 0 Comments

I just wanted to post this link -- a true story from Harper's in 1954 about a physicist who thinks he's a ruler of an Intergalactic Empire and his therapist. Their is a twist at the end and even I didn't see it coming.

Mike, your last name is very unique. My ex-nephew was Eric Hostetler. He was in the Air Force and married my niece in San Angelo, TX. I wonder if we are related. His next post was in Hawaii. My niece never gave him a change. Fine gentleman, but he was too involved with his intendo when they went to Hawaii and didn't spend time with her.

Zan Perron - Ars Amorata philosophy

This group looks like it's more or less dead but I might as well post this here. I'd recommend checking out Zan Perron and his books as an alternative to the run-of-the mill "pickup advice", a lot of which is cheesy and counter-productive and more about creating a "macho parody" than the actual art and philosophy of seduction.(I definitely think a lack of understanding of the psychology and art of attraction and sex appeal is a thing that causes a lot of failure in dating and relationships;…See More
