This is a very short skit that works well as an introduction to a discussion about GodÕs vision/purpose for sex. The patient in the scene is a guy who clearly thinks about sex all the time. You might transition immediately into a group discussion by asking, ÒWhen does it seem like everyone is thinking about sex?Ó or ÒDo you agree or disagree with the statement: ÒAll guys think about sex all the time?Ó
- Chairs for two volunteers
- a desk for the doctor (or small table)
- notebook, paper, and pen
- pre-drawn pictures as listed below in the script (you may want to put the Doctor in a tie/coat or white DoctorÕs coat)
Psychologist and patient played by 2 adult leaders
- (A doctorÕs office with a desk for doctor and a chair for the patient. The Doctor sits behind his desk facing the patientÉ who sits in chair across from him.)
Doctor: I am going to show you some pictures. You tell me what comes to you mind when you see each picture. Ready? Here is the first picture.
(Doctor holds up a circle (drawn on paper) where everyone can see it.)
Doctor: What do you see?
(Next, the doctor holds up a triangle, and asks the patient what it reminds him of.)
Patient: (Goes wild and yells) Sex!
(The doctor then holds up a square and again in the patient goes wild.)
Doctor: I know what your problem is. YouÕve got a dirty mind.
Patient: Me? YouÕre the one with all the dirty pictures!
(Doctor exits stage and patient looks to audience and shrugs. Patient exits stage.)
