Survey says Catholics have the best sex
The Family Research Council points to studies that show churchgoing, monogamous adults have the best sex lives.
This might not be the best reason to become religious, but apparently, churchgoing adults have better sex than the rest of us.

At an event on Wednesday, a representative from the Family Research Council declared “those who worship God weekly have the best sex.” Senior fellow Patrick Fagan added:
“I want to see this on the cover of Playboy sometime.”
Fagan pointed to a variety of data, including the University of Chicago’s National Health and Social Life Survey. In that study, researchers asked married couples about the quality and satisfaction of their sex lives. They found that couples who attend church weekly have the most enjoyable and frequent sex.

Another study, titled “Sex: The Catholic Experience,” found that 68 percent of Catholics have sex at least once a week, compared with 56 percent of non-Catholics. That study also found that 30 percent of Catholic women have bought erotic underwear, compared with 20 percent of non-Catholics.
Seem silly? Someone in the audience thought so, too, and asked Fagan about the danger of promoting Catholicism using this “best sex” angle. His response was that “those who are monogamous have the best sex they ever could — because it’s the only sex they'll ever know."
More from The Heart Beat:
Well when you can be a sexually repressed, depraved pervert in bed and feel as if afterwards all you have to do is ask for forgiveness so that all your debauchery is magically erased... You don't have to live with the guilt of that self image...
Next morning prayer: "Oh lord forgive me for role playing priest with my wife or gf... Phew... I feel so much better now... Here honey some more cream for the rug burn and sorry I made you bark last night while I was using the lord's name in vain..."
Now that I am an atheist, I do better anyway, since I don't believe my wife is subservient to me.
And much more when the only punishment if caught is to pray more. No legal consequences.
Aq-Man, thank you for sticking up for me. The last time I had that happen was after I got fired for saying the name of Jesus to a fellow employee (I thought it was about time since I had worked with him 9 years). Later a guy friend went with me to retrieve my office chair; and the boss who fired me was acting friendly as if nothing happened when my friend said within his hearing distance, "Why is he pretending to be your friend after firing you?" He was able to see the situation as it really was and speak up. That's a good friend. It warmed my heart. And to tell you the truth, only my brothers have done that before, many years ago. Thanks again. We do have freedom of speech on the job and all other places. I just chose not to pursue it. It was a small business.
I read it. Did you read that my reference to infrequent sex was directed at Catholics whe practice rhe rhythm method.
