About the Blog

Good Girls Need Cold Showers Too is a collection of essays for girls who’ve been raised in conservative circles of any kind. It is for the girl who has chosen to save sex for marriage, but isn’t completely sure as to why. It is for the girl who has grown up relationally strained, physically discontent, and sexually stifled and feels strange for being so. It is for the girl who was taught men are visual, sexually-driven beings, while women are mere hopeless romantics with an easily-contained sexuality.

Growing up beyond the hype “pure culture”, when females are no longer getting married at 21, can cause one to face a surprising climate of confusion and distress for which you simply weren’t equipped. For some of us, being a “good girl” is expected of us. Maybe we’ve even taken a little pride in it. But the expectation causes us to face levels of frustration that seem to pool into every area of our life.

All of us are equipped with a desire to love on a physical, and emotional level. Fewer of us know just how to navigate it in modern life.
