Come To Think Of It

Carl Trueman considers current sexualized culture, a la Marquis DeSade

Yet if sex is evacuated of any intrinsic ethical significance, and the culture turns against celibacy and monogamy, the notion of consent itself may eventually become as morally meaningless as the orgasms it is supposed to legitimate.  Indeed, one could even see a case eventually being made in DeSade world for the withholding of sex being considered an act of oppression, like the withholding of a wedding cake or a photo-shoot.  It will never happen, you say.  Well, more than any other history, that of sexuality and the laws surrounding it indicates that one should never say never.

Here is Trueman’s article. Worth the read.
