What happens when a generation of Christian youth pledge sexual abstinence until marriage? Since the 1990s, the Purity Movement has been at the center of the national sexual conversation extending past the pew and all the way into the Oval Office. Including some of the leading experts on Evangelicalism today, Give Me Sex Jesus invites you into the guilt, pleasure, shame, and humor of sorting out faith and sex in America.
"It’s an amazing documentary about how devout Christians rationalize their faith against their need to have happy sexy time."
-DANA GOULD, COMEDIAN
"[They] interview leaders in the [purity] movement, critics of it, academics, and—most effectively—normal people who were hurt by it."
"They’re not pushing an agenda that says Christians are right or wrong. They’re only interested in telling the stories of people who grew up with these rules around them and explaining where this sex-negativity (my term, not theirs) comes from."
-HEMANT MEHTA, FRIENDLY ATHEIST
