People in long standing relationships rarely talk about this subject.  The church hardly ever talks about this subject and I think it's time that this subject gets a voice.Even God told Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply.  How would they do this without having a satisfying sexual relationship?  I am not promoting promiscuity or irresponsibility with respects to sexual intercourse. We are not supposed to rut like animals.  I promote sex between two people who love one another and who desire to be in a long-term commitment; specifically married but  that me walking in my faith without judgment.  What I am saying is that women should boldly speak up and tell their mate what pleasures them, if they are not satisfied and to take the shame and stigma away from the mere conversation of sex.Sex is a beautiful thing that God created and I believe if there was less shame and stigma, especially for a woman, there would be less rape, abuse and degrading of women who truly enjoy intimacy with their mates.For more specifics, please email pen.the.praise@gmail.comor Zakiyyah King at znking06@gmail.com Performances:Saturday January 30 at 3pm and 7:30pmSunday January 31 at 3pm and 7:30pm Student tickets at the door: $15General admission tickets at the door: $20, though the first 25 people to arrive before 2:45pm pay a discounted price of $15. FOR MORE INFO, EMAIL PEN.THE.PRAISE@GMAIL.COM
