Let’s face it.  We are all visual creatures, and nudity draws us in like flies to a bright light.  This really isn’t a bad thing.  In fact, God made human beings this way on purpose.  He made us sexual so that we can experience intimate pleasure with our spouse and possibly have children one day.  We are supposed to appreciate the naked body.  We are wired to desire sex.  It isn’t gross; it’s beautiful.  Unfortunately our culture often represents it as everything but the amazing gift that it is.

I recently watched part of an episode of a reality show that follows the glamorous lives of several famous married women.  You might know what show I’m referring to, and it can be addicting to watch.  During this particular show, one housewife was discussing what she described as the secret to her seventeen-year marriage.  She said that they both “worked at it” and did things to “spice things up” including watching porn together on a regular basis.  She then commented that most of her friends didn’t watch porn with their spouses, and she thinks that everyone would have better marriages if they watched it together.  I honestly couldn’t believe how comfortable she was in admitting that this was a regular practice in her marriage.  Even if it were true, most people wouldn’t admit it on national television.  She was not only admitting it; she was celebrating it and even advising it.  I couldn’t help but ask myself, “Is porn really becoming this socially acceptable?”
