Saving Sex for Marriage in a “50 Shades of Grey” World

Beth Steury

It’s tough to maintain sexual purity in our sex-crazed culture. And just when traditional values could really use a shot in the arm, what do we get instead? A massive assault on society’s morals.

The premiere of the movie “50 Shades of Grey” is garnering a ghastly amount of attention this Valentine’s Day weekend. Variety reports—

“The film, which began rolling out internationally on Wednesday, opened No. 1 in 56 of its 57 territories, including the U.K., France, Germany and Russia. It grossed $38 million on Friday for an early total of $66 million.”

heartsNever mind, apparently, that Valentine’s is supposed to celebrate  the love and romance in relationships, not the dominant, manipulative, and yes, even painful sexual experiences of characters who, of course, are not married. Be assured, theirs is not a story of genuine, authentic romance despite it being linked with the love/romance, hearts/candy holiday.

It’s bad enough…

There was one so endearing
Whose presence was so interesting
And whose demeanour was compelling
With consistent expression that was exciting.
There was. There was!

Now in one place together,
but yet they are so far away.
They wanted to be friends forever,
Alas! It was a dream set ablaze.

Drifting apart day by day,
They thought all was well and good.
Oblivious to this reality,
That their fusion was transforming inadvertently,
Turning into a mirage; an illusion.

They both remember that night,
of teary-eyedness and of running nose,
The day it was to end.
Cries had no meaning.
Silence was unending.
They waved goodbye without looking.
Never to be together.
To live alone forever.

PS: I wish they come back together. My friends.



Sky so blue
Like waters of the deep
Flowing without end.

Sky so blue
Like the ink of a pen
Transforming thoughts into reality.

Sky so blue
Like the shadows of Phantasms
Engulfed in unholy intents
and bursting into blinding whiteness.
