Give Me Sex Jesus is a new documentary that tells six personal stories of struggle from within the Evangelical community to remain sexually pure until marriage. This Friday September 25th on Sex Out Loud Radio, I discuss the film with the filmmakers Matt Barber and Brittany Machado and talk about the Purity movement, abstinence-only education, belief, faith and what happens when our bodies and desires do not behave. Watch the entire film for free on Vimeo here!
