Tips on love sex and dating
This past Sunday I gave a lecture on sex, dating and relationships at the Newman Center at the University of Iowa.As a professor here, I teach classes on the American family and introductory sociology courses, so I’ve heard a lot about the undergraduate hook-up culture.
The basic ingredients for a good sexual relationship are mutual love, respect and a real sense of caring about the other person’s feelings.
To prepare for the talk, I attended at Thursday 10 p.m.
Mass where about 75 committed Catholic undergrads served as a focus group: After I explained why I thought it was important for issues of sex and dating to be address within the Church, I asked students to put their anonymous questions on index cards.
As my husband frequently reminds me, it’s not that you marriage.
It’s a commitment you make every day and sex is one way in which you recommit yourself to your spouse.
