Girls and women are bombarded with messages that shape sexuality. What impedes and interferes with healthy sexuality? How does this affect the decisions women make about their lives and relationships? Does it contribute to discontent in marriage?

Today’s guest, Jeanice Barcelo says, “People in our pronographic culture are drawn to each other based on physical attraction. Women will try to look their "hottest" and lure men based through the charms of their bodies. However, if we use our bodies to attract a man, then what we get is a man who is interested in physical pleasure from us. This is not love. Yet, many people gravitate toward each other this way, they then have sex, think it is great - so it must be "love," and ultimately get married and have kids. But this is not a real union." Jeanice maintains that love has little to do with physical pleasure and, on the contrary, the focus on "good sex" is part of what is destroying families. Many couples do great in the bedroom (and call it "love"), but out of the bedroom they cannot get along,have very few goals in common and little to talk about. Jeanice believes that women don't like sex because they intuitively know that they are being used.
