Taking the Squeamishness out of Sex
We're super excited to finally have our first SEXtraordinaryMarriages billboard go live Monday, July 30th!! With your help this is hopefully just the first of many billboards to restore some light and positive affirmation to healthy marital sexuality--the way God designed it. We want to "change the air" regarding marital sexuality and take some of the squeamishness out of sex. Ultimately, we hope to help create many "sextraordinary marriages!" :) 

Our end goal is for individuals, couples, families and organizations to: 1) more openly, comfortably and confidently talk about and affirm marital sexuality, and 2) to help people have a more positive association with sexuality.  But we need your help! Click here to donate to our GoFundMe campaign and share it with your friends who might also help us "change the air" regarding healthy marital sexuality! ;)

"It took decades for society to believe  the science that proved smoking cigarettes was harmful, and we are learning a similar lesson with porn in our world today... 

With all this new information gathered from research and scientific studies, it is time for society to take a critical look at what's been perpetually marketed as a relationship enhancer, harmless personal entertainment, and solid sexual education source. As convenient as it would be to believe those claims, science and research are showing us how porn harms the brain, damages relationships, and negatively affects society as a whole...
  1. Porn can change and rewire a consumer's brain. 
  2. A porn habit can dramatically escalate into unexpected territory.
  3. Porn can become an obsessive compulsion, or even an addiction.
  4. Porn can really alter a consumer's sexual tastes..."
