Sex And Religion

Thu Aug 03, 2006 11:24 pm

I myself am not affiliated with any organized religion, but living in North America, the influence of certain religions is clear in every day life. I am not singling anyone out, but at issue are various forms of Christianity, because those are the ones influencing North American culture the most. Damn prudes.  Wink

Oh yeah, at times it may appear i'm talking about Catholics, well maybe I am, that particular church is in the spot light often and seem to have both influence, and common threads with other churches. I must note that I have nothing against individual members of any church, but rather the concept itself.

So let's say "God" (for the sake of argument) created people. Job well done I must say. As we all know, human procreation is quite unique in the animal world. We reproduce year round, yet we produce few offspring, pregnancy takes a long time, and human babies/children have a very long dependency period before they are ready to face the world on their own. Pretty sensitive and brittle process all in all.

So when God was designing all this, he clearly decided to make it foolproof, to ensure the survival of our species. Regular old animal sex wasn't going to cut it. So God did the following:

Clue #1. Give man and woman such wonderfully compatible sex organs.

Clue #2. Give man and woman urges to use their sex organs, in unison. Just in case they can't figure what a vagina and a penis are for.

Clue #3. Orgasms. God probably thought long and hard about this one. "Come on, surely the first 2 will get the message across - have sex, lots of it. Nah, can't leave anything to chance, I'm going to make this stuff airtight"

But then the church came along. They worship God, yet spit on his most obvious creation. God hard wired sex into each and every persons brain. Yet some dudes wrote some book and all of a sudden that takes precedence over God directly communicating with people. After seeing that, God no doubt is going to need an eternity of infinitely high priced counselling. "How do you fuck THAT up?!"

Way to go organized religion. How did they manage to make sex so taboo? And who the hell thought abstinence for clergy would be a good idea?!

Which brings me to homosexuality. I guess the church hates gays. Yet there's so many of them in the church, hmm I wonder why. Maybe it's because pretty much any animal that is denied contact with the opposite sex is going to move on to homosexuality. Non-Christian societies around the world have been practicing it for ages, not to mention many other species. And I'm pretty sure "monastery" means "Big gay orgy" in some ancient language.

Does one really need to wonder why there are so many weirdos and even complete nutjobs that affiliate themselves with different churches? Freud's theories about how energy is redirected from "inappropriate" impulses to other things applies fully, IMO. Why there's so much child abuse among clergy (and elsewhere too) is even more obvious.

The pathetic sex education that "religious" teens often receive is downright criminal too. Statistics show that teenage girls from a background such as that are the most likely to become pregnant and get STDs. Way to go organized religion.

In conclusion, can you imagine how much happier the world would be, if more people used common sense when it came to sex, instead of being guided by dumbfounding notions concocted by manipulative individuals ages ago?


One last disclaimer: this post is only semi-serious, but I think it IS something worth pondering. So take it easy... and have lots of great sex! Big grin

I have always been led to belive that this was due beacause in olden times the church wasnt rich enought to support Priests with wife and kids.. Which - if I were to give $$ to the church id like it to go to other causes rather than to my Priest son's Playstation. (See evangelical pastors on TV)

Quoting LY744 (Thread starter):

I dont think the official stance of any church is to "hate" anyone. However followers tend to feel morally superior to others and its their indiviual stance that gets more attention. But - as Mel Gibson - has recently showed us - the higher you place yourself morally over other the bigger the fall.

Because people enjoyed it, and it wasn't there for enjoyment it was there for making little people... no fun intended.

And there were probably "we can't do it so you're sure as hell not going to enjoy it" sentiments coming from the celibacy.

And it was the original sin, so it's wrong anyway.

I used to always think that the biggest enemy to common sense and plain old reason is religion. The human body was designed for sex, yet religion tends to look down on it. The Catholic church has a way of making sex seem like a "necessary chore to bear offspring" than one of the pleasures of life.

And it's not just the Catholic church and Christians.

For me religion was a way for older generations and all our ancestors to put some control on people living in societies when law and education were not there.

That's why nowdays you have a large number of teen pregnancies and STDs. That's why Christianity always pushed for monogamy and abstinence. People have started disregarding religion without taking better care of themselves and being responsible without having someone enforcing it.

By the way, I am not religious at all but I think that the strictness of religion was making up for the stupidity and carelessness of people.

Most of this comes from people like you who push teenage girls to having sex if they "really care" for you. "it is showing true love". Load of crap. True love is being able to wait for the person you spend your life with. I know that when I get married its gona be a great gift that I give my wife that she will be my first and my last. Yes I am a proud virgin. The best gift I can give. My wife will not being getting left overs.

Good for you and your wife to be. If that is what you choose and what she chooses - then by all means go ahead and enjoy it!

However, if you look down on people who do not make the same choices you have.. what is that called?

I kid, I kid. But seriously, you don't know me. As a matter of fact, I happen to think that a lot of teenagers are having sex before they should, and I've never pressured a girl to have sex.

Maybe. If that's what you want who am I to say otherwise. But the key there is "you want". It shouldn't be some pastor, or your family making your decisions for you.

Of course there's another question: how do you know this person is "the one"?

...and: what if the love of your life is not a virgin by the time you meet?

I've been joking for years that I was going to start my own church with new rules. I actually got the name of the church from a dear old friend 25 years ago. Seems that when he drank he became rather religious and stuff. So we called it "The Church of Jesus Christ of Unorganized Late Afternoon Drunken Saints". In my church sex is cool for those that chose that and we will do a single shot of Jack Daniels just after the pray service. So in this case sex and religion can be cool. Please pass the JD.

What's the rule again? 1 preacher and 3 followers officially makes you a religion? Just a couple more and you've got yourself a bonefide church. Think of all the tax savings!  Silly

If you throw in a mandatory 4 day weekend every week, and ammend the JD rule to read "any beverage that has an alcohol content that's obscenly high" (can't stand the taste of straight whiskey), then you may have yourself a follower!  Wink

Yeah, religion's views on sex are pretty much warped... Abstinence is not an answer, because no matter what, people are gonna try stuff, and if they haven't been educated sexually, they're less likely to use protection and more likely to contract STDs- AS THE STATISTICS SHOW!!!!

After 25 years in the works we still have yet to iron out the rules. I'm thinking to be a church we need to figure out how to make this a business. So the first thing is getting mail order stuff out there and a web site. We could always a be division of GodCo.com (another one of my older companies). I'm not sure that I want to be a Reverend, rather call me the "Grand Pooba". I'm all for the 4 day work week and any alcohol is perfectly fine, heck we might have draft beer available before the service. Now as far as sex goes, we need to be cool in Church and keep that a personal matter. I don't want someone messing up the seats. I had a thought for church building we could get us a old 747-200 and use that for our services. We also take credit cards. All I need is some nut from Hollywood to follow my cause and I'm in business.

I wonder, I keep hearing about these 'prude' Americans but have yet to encounter one. In high school and adulthood, I liked 'prude' girls because they always seemed to be much wilder than the wild girls themselves, if only in private.

As to the entire sex scene, w/o religion added on, IMHO, most people dont know how to enjoy it well. There is really very few tricks for this.

1) relax
2) concern yourself with pleasuring your partner (and viceversa)
3) EXPERIMENT!!!  biggrin  (Did a little experiment last night, the results were fantastic, and nothing kinky)

It is no small accident that the hierarchies of Judaism, Christianity and Islam are all entirely patriarchical. Men use myth and superstition to control women's ability to have sex and reproduce. Think about it.

Ahh the age old dilema. Then again it is not really a dilema. God made man, God made women and he made sex. God told man and women WHEN it was appropriate to have sex and when it was NOT appropriate to have sex. It is really that simple. In God's eye's, sex outside of marriage is a no-go. Does that mean your going to hell? No, it doesn't mean you are going to hell but it does mean that you open yourself up to feelings, thoughts, and pains that God tried to protect you from.

I've had sex and I'm not married. I'm not going to stand here though and try to argue that what I did was right or should be right in God's eyes.

I think the #1 issue with Sex is God! If you believe in God then don't try to bend the rules or make excuses. If you don't believe in God then don't worry about!

 checkmark 

We have to either follow all the rules or don't follow any, it is upto us.

eg. use of condoms is not allowed in Catholics. Some claims, it causes AIDS and other STD. But if you and your partner follow all the rules ie, no sex before/outside marriage and don't use condoms, no chance of getting STD.

But if you want to have sex outside of marriage you already are breaking a rule, after that there is no point in saying that you cannot use condoms because you are Catholic.
Once you break one rule, you cannot follow another rule and put the balme on that rule. If want to follow, follow the rules wholly and not in bits and pieces.

She was a very moral person as well knowing what she did was a mistake giving away something so precious. So in short, if shes not a virgin, who cares. I am still giving her something. Off the record: If shes not a virgin, I guess that means she will make me a pro at sex a lot faster right?  Wink haha

Three kids are having a discussing about what part of you goes to heaven first.

First kid says its the brain, since all your memories reside there.

Second kid claims its your heart, for all the love that is there.

Third kids insists its the feet.

The other two are astounded and ask why?

Here's a question- why does sex magically become OK once you are married? Of course you can get an STD if you have sex while married without protection. You're just less likely to spread it to someone else if you are married. That concept of marital sex becoming magically the opposite (risk-wise) of pre-marital sex has always seemed really bizarre to me.

As Matt Barry (whoever he is) once said- "It isn't premarital sex if you have no intention of getting married."

It becomes ok only if both have followed the rules, no sex before marriage. In that case chances of STD are minimal or zero. Theoretically you could argue against this, but not statistically.

There is this thing called "fidelity" that a few people still have. You can have your views. Whatever. I could not sleep well at night though. There are some of us who are guided by something more than an orgasm. However, from most of the comments, I can see it's not a notion that can be transfered, so it's not worth discussing.

I dont care what you and your church think gods stance is, you are welcome to have any view you like, BUT I object very strongly when you/they push those views in a political arena, such as sex education in public schools, contraception, age of consent, marriage laws, etc.

Don't believe in any religion. Live your life to the fullest, and don't follow some weird rules that were invented 2000 years ago.

I'm a Christian and chose not to have sex before I got married and I got married last year at the age of 34. I agree it is a personal belief thing and I chose to believe what I think the Bible says about sex outside of marriage. I agree too that my beliefs shouldn't be pushed on someone who has different values than mine but I do expect that abstinence should be taught along side safe sex messages as an alternative in the sex debate and then individuals left to make a decision.

Well, it's very easy and much nicer for me to do so going by those weird rules. Shame what a loss it is for the women though, terrible shame.  Big grin

Funny cuz you actually HAVE TO follow some of those very rules. It is in the constotution now  Wink plus it is considerd against morals to not do so other wise. Do you murder? If you do then you go to prison for a long time. "Thou shalt not commit murder" is that familiar? Do you steal? If you do you get charges pressed against you and possibly a day in jail. "Thou shalt not steal" familiar? Do you cheat on your wife and sleep with another woman? If you do it is considerd immoral. It could actually cost you a bundle. "Thou shalt not commit adultry". Are you getting the drift? What you think is hogwash is actually what morals and laws are actually built around.  Wink

Just thought id say that

Who said that I think those rules are weird?

Does the constitution say that you can't have sex before marriage?

Quoting QXatFAT (Reply 42):
Do you murder?

I've unfortunately once murdered a bird as I hit it with my car, and I've murdered dozens of insects.

Seriously: Of course a few of the rules are good, just not all of them.

I don't think that many people need these as rules as most people think that way anyway. And for the psychos that are left, well that is what modern laws, a justice system and the police are here for.
