A website with a name like Puresextucson.com is advertising classes about sex, but in a 'Godly way'.
Created by a Tucson Baptist pastor, the site claims "God wants you to have great sex."
Pastor Jeremiah McDuffie of The Element Community Church said the Web site is tied in to a series of sermons he plans to deliver on consecutive Sundays starting Sept. 7 on the issue of sex.
Ultimately, he hopes to open up dialogue on a subject he says is too often regarded as taboo in houses of worship. Yet it's also at the root of so many issues he hears about from worshippers and others who seek him out for pastoral counselling, he said.
"Sex wasn't invented in a dark alley behind a porn shop. It's part of God's design," The Daily Telegraph quoted McDuffie's website, as stating.
McDuffie admitted that mailers sent to 35,000 Tucson homes to promote the sermons have generated some complaints.
"The negative calls we've had were basically from people saying this was a subject we shouldn't be dealing with in church, that it's inappropriate,'' said McDuffie, who confesses he was once a porn addict.
McDuffie said that he hopes the sermons will help open an honest dialogue on a subject that is often considered taboo in houses of worship.
