Wilkes-Barre, Luzerne County- ''I Heart Sex'' was finally displayed on a large billboard on Wilkes-Barre Township Blvd. in Luzerne County.

The slogan ''I Heart Sex'' was created by Restored Church of Wilkes-Barre, who is hoping this message will get  more people into their pews.

 "Sex is a great thing, God designed it. And he is all about it, but sometimes the church is so afraid of it that the church might have a view of it that would say that its dirty or gross and we shouldn't talk about it, but if god designed it then we should take about it and its a great thing, " said Pastor Dan Nicholas.

The Evangelical Church wants to spread the message that god is the author of sex, and God created it for a specific purpose and design.

"A man and a woman marriage we think sex inside a marriage is awesome and wonderful  and we really want to promote healthy marriages," added Pastor Dan.

But some teens say the sign is too vague and worried it will promote the wrong message.

But Pastor Dan says, "You cant put a whole paragraph on a billboard you cant put a whole sermon on a billboard  so the reason we put that us there is  to draw interest."
