Good Day, father! :) Thanks for opening up your askbox. My question is this: For Catholics who want to live the faith fully, is it a sin to watch "sensitive" scenes in movies? (I don't know what to call it!) For example, passionate kissing scenes and the like? Similarly, is it a sin to read about them and listen to songs with bad lyrics? (For example, common lyrics of hiphop songs have references to sex, etc.) Is there an objective answer to this or does it differ based on self knowledge? - Anonymous

Here’s a great answer on that point from a priest friend of mine: part 1, part 2, and part 3. Does that help?

God bless you!

I've decided to wait until marriage to have sex but I recently got a boyfriend. He respects my choice but I just wanted to ask, how far is too far? I really don't want to mess up. Thank you. - Anonymous

Father, I've asked several Catholics this question, and I've had very different answers, so by now I really don't know what to think... Is kissing sin? More specifically, French kissing? If yes, is it a venial or a mortal sin? - Anonymous
