I won't name names. I don't need to. We all know women and/or men like it.
Those who live by "look, but don't touch."
Lately, I've come into contact with women reading "50 Shades of Grey" and watching "Magic Mike" and I have done a poor job of explaining why I won't read or watch anything like it.
I've jokingly said, "I'm a married woman!" or something vague about how I would not like Steve looking at naked women or strippers and so I show the same courtesy by following that same request.
I've made it seem like it was some sort of mutual contract Steve and I made. He doesn't look, so I don't look. We look at each other.
I am not saying that this is false, or untrue.
But - it's not the whole story.
I didn't want to watch or read that stuff before I got married.
And I am embarrassed that I've created this cop-out excuse that I don't because I'm married.
Lord, forgive me.
The real reason is I am a God-fearing woman.
If, by chance, the idea of porn being bad offends you, just stop reading now.
The Bible is VERY clear about sexual sin and even lust:
THIS is the REAL reason I don't look.
I want to be closer to God. I want to follow Him, love Him with ALL MY HEART, SOUL, & MIND. And SERVE Him.
