Christians have been known to point to secular research and claim they are having better sex than the rest of society. But is it true? What are believers getting right, and where do they need to be rescued?
In this episode, the WADR team talk about how to have better sex. No, this is not Megan and Michael’s opportunity to present the evangelical version of the karma sutra. Rather, they want to talk about the ways Christianity has got sex right – or a lot of the time wrong – and what can be done better for everyone’s sake.
First up, Megan and Michael invite on to the show the co-author of the influential Christian book The Great Sex Rescue, Sheila Wray Gregoire. Sheila shares what she and her co-authors discovered when they talked to 22,000 Christian women.
Then the WADR duo talk about the Australian #metoo moment and what they think about consent education.
Finally, we finish the show with the film Give Me Sex Jesus, a title that sells itself. And consider this your warning. This episode is talking about sex, so it is definitely for mature audiences.
Follow this link to check out Sheila’s book, The Great Sex Rescue: The Lies You’ve Been Taught and How to Recover What God Intended, by Sheila Wray Gregoire, psychology graduate Rebecca Gregoire Lindenbach and epidemiologist and statistician Joanna Sawatsky.

Less aggro, more conversation.
Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.
There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.
