About the blog

I created this blog to have a space to put down my thoughts regarding "purity." As in the type of sexual purity taught primarily in modern American Evangelical Christian churches. Although I no longer consider myself a part of the movement, it played a part in my life and continues to be a subject I am fascinated by.

I want to examine the effects that teachings on sexual purity have on people, relationships, and religion through pondering, storytelling, and discussion. I share my personal experiences and I welcome others to share their own, whether in the comments or for me to post on the blog.

My hope is that this will be a place of good discussion, an outlet to vent, learning and healing.
