Who says sex can’t be just sex? And who says casual sex has any impact on individuals or relationships?
Oh wait, I do! And so does biological anthropologist (and sex expert) Helen Fisher in the video below.
For years Project Six19 has spoken about how sex is never just sex. Now science has proven this in more ways than one. Specifically, science is showing there is no such thing as casual sex.
Sex stimulates areas of the human brain that are linked to love and attachment.
Dopamine, vasopressin, and oxytocin flood our largest sex organ during sex. And no, your largest sex organ is not your genitalia (sorry, Donald Trump). It’s your brain! These neurochemicals create feelings of trust, protection, and bonding.
This needs to be the conversation we are having about sex. In fact, it reinforces the very verse we find in Scripture: “The two will become one flesh.” Often we fail to remember that God was the sex-maker. He gave purpose and design to this wonderful gift. He gave us sexual desire and pleasure. But He also gave us a time and place to experience sex as a means of protection for our hearts and minds – marriage.
Casual sex doesn’t exist! Don’t believe me? Check out the video below:
