Christian Sex-Ed LP's

"The Christian Sex Instruction Album is a rare and antiquated subgenre. An exhaustive search turned up only three records (well, two and a half really), the most recent of which was released in 1971. Lately Christians have opted for the "less is more" strategy of sex education. That is simply telling their youth that abstinence before marriage is the way to go and don't bother us with details. The umbrella title for this philosophy is called "True Love Waits." The "movement" consists of a pop tune ("True Love Waits") extolling the virtues of self-denial, a wallet-sized pledge card (lamination recommended) and a sports hero celebrity spokesman (The Dallas Mavericks' A.C. Green). Abstinence is good. What's to argue? Having listened to the following albums in one sitting, this shift in policy is quite understandable and perhaps even laudable."
Read more about this exciting artform in this article in Adult Christianity. And listen to the three songs over in the bottom of this post (after UPDATE)!!! (via Boing Boing)
