October 15, 2013 ( – I am compelled to write this article, “Real Women Don’t Like Lust”, in response to the various media (movies, magazines, music, television and print) continually promoting and falsely characterizing women as sex objects and as insatiable wild lusty types while in reality all the emphasis on ‘sex’ and ‘sexy’ and ‘sex lives’ separated from real meaning and purpose is having the exact opposite effect- driving couples further apart and in the long run making women feel kind of pukey about it all.

which includes the physical renewal of the wedding vows.
