Sex Night

I'm helping to run a sex night at youth group this week. Needless to say, its not an actual night of sex, as the name may suggest, but instead is aimed at getting young people thinking about smart sexual decision making, and how being a follower of Jesus might affect that.

So I thought I'd chuck it open to see if anybody has any ideas or knows of some good resources around to create some healthy dialogue around this topic. Its something I cover a lot with kids at school too, so all ideas are welcome. When have you seen these kind of nights done well, when have you seen them done badly.

No double entrendes intended in this post, so please don't take anything as such!

so YOU're helping do it...i was wondering who was.
i liked the panel thing we had when cindy (i think) ran it at youth group a few years ago, that was really awesome. Ya remember? on the panel were ppl like umm, MaryAnn and LUcas, i think (and others). and they just shared stuff about their decisions/feelings/what they've learnt over time. that was cool. if ya wanna do that, or if ya need to chuck round ideas, you know how to find me! :P

Yes, panels are usually a good idea. The thing is, you can almost run the night entirely on discussing the kids' own questions. I'm sure they'll have heaps.

You also might want to introduce them to the Song of Solomon.

And yes, if one is looking for double entendres, they're quite easy to find...

Yeah nice, thanks for that. I'll definitely give it a look. A mate has an equally disturbing set of tapes he found at Bible college-no wonder we're growing up in an age thats misinformed about sex-very funny stuff!

I think Darren from livingroom.org.au might have some good ideas on this, i remember reading a post on his blog not too long ago about something he did on on the topic of sex at church. You should email him or something

Digger said...

Yeah nice, thanks for the heads up on that one John.

There is a published study for youth done from the Song of Solomon, on purity, why waiting, rewards of waiting, honesty and risks of not waiting & promescuity.

I wish I could tell you the name of it. It has both a junior high and a high school level, and my son went through it when he was in 6th grade with his junior high and he's now a freshman in high school. He was furious that I made him go through it when 'I could care less about girls!'

I told him that that would LITERALLY change over night and I wanted him to go through it before he saw the girls, not after.

About 9 months later, I over heard him ask his dad "Do you have any idea how georgeous girls are?!"

Anyway, not sure where you'd find it, I know our church got it from the local christian book store and it's for youth group situations and based on Song of Solomon ...

starting point?
