A Plea for Purity offers hope, healing, and a new beginning to those who have experienced discouragement or failure.

The best sex is not just physical, it is about the whole person and so much more intense.
Really hearing each other — especially when it’s about things that deeply matter — is a great way to set the stage for great sex.
