Closed Legs Do Get Fed: Navigating Celibacy in Today's World
Sex is the one thing we can't escape dealing with in our daily lives. It is literally everywhere from our billboards, to our social networks, and even within the hallowed walls of our churches. Even with its dominating presence, it seems talking openly and honestly about sex is the last thing many people want to do. When you're a Christian, how do you unite the feelings your sexual nature brings with the condemning sermons that tell you to deny yourself 'just because God said so'? Closed Legs Do Get Fed: Navigating Celibacy in Today's World breaks through the silence of our churches and sheds light on why we're called to celibacy by discussing the emotional and spiritual components of sexual intimacy. Author D. Danyelle goes a step further and explains how sexual celibacy is not only possible but relevant to our modern lives. While the rewards of celibacy are often touted and celebrated, Closed Legs Do Get Fed is forward about the challenges and obstacles that keep many from choosing this life. This book isn't for perfect people or even to convince you to begin a celibate life but; if you've ever had more questions about celibacy, sex, and faith than you've had answers, Closed Legs Do Get Fed is here to be your guide. This book's open dialogue invites the reader to examine the fullness of romantic intimacy beyond sex while demystifying sexuality as a Christian. Told candidly through the lived experiences of the author and others, Closed Legs Do Get Fed invites you to join the journey of celibacy from the idea of commitment to the practice of celibacy from singlehood through engagement and everything in-between.
