In the pursuit of sexual ‘freedom’ today, so many people end up finding themselves enslaved.

Entrepreneur and Playboy magazine founder Hugh Hefner is the latest celebrity to weigh in on the same-sex marriage debate. In a recent article in Playboy, the magazine publisher suggested “…those opposed to same-sex marriage likely want to strip away all of America’s sexual freedoms.”

But Pastor Ed Young of Fellowship Church in Grapevine Texas thinks exactly the opposite when it comes to the acceptance that traditional beliefs have become antiquated; that marriage was created to be a union between one man and one woman. According to Ed Young, this belief system will actually increase sexual freedom through a marriage done God’s way.

Young says, “In the pursuit of sexual ‘freedom’ today, so many people end up finding themselves enslaved. What they think is a way to experience freedom and expression away from God’s plan for our lives is really a pathway that only leads to destruction. God’s plan, though, for sex inside the context of marriage between a man and a woman is the only way we will ultimately experience the most out of this amazing gift called sex.”

Ed Young, like Hefner, is no stranger to being in the spotlight over the topic of sex. He and wife Lisa Young recently co-authored a New York Times best-selling book “Sexperiment: 7 Days to Lasting Intimacy with Your Spouse.” The book challenges married couples to have sex with the spouses for seven days in a row, thus strengthening their marriage- inside and outside of the marital bed.

”When we take sex out of God’s context of marriage, we use a God-given gift in a God-forbidden way,” Pastor Young explains. “Our latest book, Sexperiment, is all about getting back to God’s definition of what sex is, what it can do, and the power and purpose it can provide married couples. Our God created sex; it’s time our world gets back to understanding His plan for it.”

The Sexperiment: 7 Days to Lasting Intimacy with Your Spouse (FaithWords-Hachette) is available now on and Barnes and Noble bookstores. All proceeds from “Sexperiment” will go to Fellowship Church and their impact around the world.


Ed Young is the founding pastor of Fellowship Church, one of the most attended churches in North America. He is an author and speaker noted for communicating biblical truth in creative and memorable ways. He has a passion for making the complex, simple as he speaks truth to people in ways they can understand and apply to their everyday lives. He has written 14 other books, including The New York Times best-seller Sexperiment.
