Summary
"Christians under Covers shifts how scholars and popular media talk about religious conservatives and sex. In an ethnography drawn from Christian sexuality websites, Kelsy Burke examines how some evangelical Christians use digital media to promote the idea that God wants married, heterosexual couples to have satisfying sex lives. These evangelicals maintain their religious beliefs while incorporating feminist and queer language into their talk of sexuality--encouraging sexual knowledge, emphasizing women's pleasure, and justifying marginal sexual practices within Christian marriages. This book complicates boundaries between normal and subversive, empowered and oppressed, and sacred and profane"--Provided by publisher
