Need to go to confession or not?


Ok so is reading something or watching something that mentions sex bad? For example, I watched Liberal Arts and there is a scene where nothing happens but sex is mentioned. Where is the line between mortal sin and not mortal sin when it comes to this? :confused:
Thanks ;)!


Perhaps I’m misunderstanding something, but: Is it a sin for me to have read your post?

Sex is a natural part of the human condition, and simply reading/watching something that mentions sex is not a sin. It becomes a sin if you are reading/watching in a lustful way (did you purposely watch that scene with the intention of becoming aroused?).


i didn’t. point taken :). Thanks!
