Sexual Taboos In Christian and Conservative Relationships

Melissa Jones #ccontaboo CatalystCon West - September 28, 2013


  1. Because I am an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, I am sought out by conservative couples and individuals who want a sexuality educator that understands the guilt and frustration they bring into their sexual relationships. They are often times just needing permission to try something more than the missionary position in the dark once a month for procreation. This workshop will explore the origins of religious sexual guilt; discuss the idea that sex is a gift; and how we can help stop the cycle of shaming and guilt in the next generation. We will also discuss “forbidden fruits”: the prevalence and justification of Christians secretly engaging in taboos such as swinging and kink.
