What Is Wrong with Mixed Swimming?

by Jimmy Allen
"What Is Hell Like and Other Sermons"

I can’t speak for the ladies, but I can speak for the men. There’s not an ordinary man who can look at a woman clad in nothing but a bathing suit for any period of time without entertaining evil thoughts. "But," some will say, "it does not bother me." One who says that may be so young that his passions have not arisen, or he may be so old they have subsided, or he may be so ignorant he doesn’t know what is going on, or he may not be normal, or he may be lying. He fits into one of these five categories, or he may be a spiritual giant; but spiritual giants don’t spend time at mixed swimming parties.
