Human Sexuality

TOB2There is a lot written on the gift of human sexuality today, some things really helpful and some not so much. The following  links are meant as a kind of reference guide to the best literature on the theology of the body, natural family planning, and sexual identity. In this last set of links, our concern is not only for the defense of marriage and promotion of chastity, but also for understanding masculinity and femininity as geniuses to embrace in their own right.
