Some Christian guys (the Harris brothers) created a website and group designed to lead people to Christ and to correct some wrongs in society. On their website at they have done one of the greatest polls ever done on the issue of clothes and modesty. They asked 100s of questions to thousands of men, and got what the American male sees as modest and immodest. Would you like the results?

*We have to realize that this information may have an impact on how some girls feel (technically that is good). But it does pinpoint sin to one gender. Just mention that if we were doing a lesson on touch or choice words or other stuff that is more geared towards males, the opposite affect would take place.

**Also, just because a majority of men think something is immodest, it does not necessarily mean that. Of course the opposite is also true, just because few men think something is immodest, doesn’t make it so.

This is going to be given to you ladies so you can have some understanding as to what men think, cool?
