Atheists Have the Best Sex

praying_hands.jpg
Today in sex studies: You will have much better sex if you are not religious, if by religious you mean the type of person who is plagued with guilt both during and for weeks, maybe even years, after sex because SEX IS BAD. This is the lesson we may take from the Daily Mail's examination of a Sex and Secularism survey from Kansas University, which found that guilty religious types had practically zero fun at all, because even when they were doing something fun, they felt really bad about it. Presumably that ends when you finally get to heaven? Anyone know?

According to the study, both religious and nonreligious folks did about the same sex stuff -- watching porn, having oral sex, masturbating, and even having affairs -- with equal abandon. But the religious folks simply did not enjoy the experiences as much because of the feelings of "intense regret" they were left with. Which makes you wonder why they continued to do those things, but that's the kind of twisted lives some people lead.

Here's the breakdown on guilt levels from highest to lowest, of the religions listed:

• Mormon
• Jehovah's Witness
• Pentecostal
• Seventh Day Adventist
• Baptist
• Catholic
• Lutheran
• Agnostic
• Atheist

If you happen to fall in those top guilty religious brackets, take heart: People who had once been religious but became atheists "reported a significant improvement in sexual satisfaction."

Redemption?

somewhat related -- did you know that there are four types of orgasm:

there's the positive one -- "oh yes, oh yes"there's the negative one -- "oh no, oh no"there's the religious one -- "oh god, oh god"and there's the fake one -- "oh jen, oh jen"

(good afternoon, i'm here all this year... 'til the next apocalypse)

The only thing enjoyable about sex is the related guilt. otherwise we might as well call it drinking coffee.

As the principal researcher for this report, I can say that this does not come close to representing the report's findings.  Many of the concerns you express in the comments are addressed in the report including non-christian religions.  Read the entire report at ipcpress.com and view a video of my recent lecture on the report at Kansas University at this link:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v...

I was also sad to see that other Christian groups were ignored, such as evangelicals and more progressive groups such as the UCC. What of deists and pantheists? Interesting, but nowhere near as comprehensive as it could be.

The words "Christian" and "progressive" seem so strange together...
