Boy meets girl. Boy and girl find each other attractive and want to know each other better, so they set aside an evening. Do they talk and discuss? No. They spend ten dollars to sit side by side in a movie theater and stare at the screen.On the screen: Boy meets girl. Boy and girl find each other attractive and want to know each other better, so they set aside an evening. Do they talk and discuss? No. They remove their clothes and have sex to the sound of violins. The movie has a happy ending.
After the movie, real-life boy and girl still want to get to know each other. On top of that, their hormones are roaring. They have been surrounded by a movie that said, “Sex is a great way to get to know someone.” Their minds reel with flashes of skin, beautiful music and happy endings. They look deeply into each other’s eyes and have sex in the car.
Boy thinks girl is easy. Boy dumps girl. Girl wonders what went wrong. (contributed by Josh McDowell)
Hollywood has glorified sex, and the depiction of sex Hollywood is giving is not accurate. It’s not the reality. You probably won’t see the phone call, weeks later, that says, “Yes, I’m pregnant.” “Yes, I have a sexually transmitted disease.”
