fusillade762: The finding that believers and regular churchgoers are positive about their love lives is in line with previous studies that associate religious involvement with better mental health and greater satisfaction with life and sexual relationships in general.OK, I'm calling shenanigans.
gravethoughts: I don't know how you arrived at that conclusion from my comment. If the two people who are farking each other are husband and wife, significant others, or any manner of consenting adults, and they are getting on a regular basis, I'm sure they are quite happy with their love life.
sendtodave: I was agreeing with you, while pre-mocking anyone that might want to complain about their sex life decreasing after they get married.
mark12A: Doesn't matter if Sky Wizard doesn't exist. IF you're willing to suspend disbelief, religion is very comforting to believers. Imagine how awesome it feels to believe, actually BELIEVE there's a wonderful afterlife waiting for you, and that some awesome power cares about you. Powerful stuff.IF you're in a non-exploitative religion (not attacking others, not depriving yourself and others of significant opportunities/stuff, etc.), it really is a win/no lose proposition. You win with a happier, longer life, and you can't lose because at no point are you disappointed to be found wrong, because you die, cease to exist, without ever finding out you're wrong.Must be nice. I'll never know. Unless I get desperate. Then it will be just sad.

Smeggy Smurf: Think about it, Jesus bummed around with fishermen. Notorious liars and drunks. He was shacked up with a whore. He kicked the shiat out of bankers in a government building. He threw a party so epic that 2000 years later we're still talking about it. And then the best they could do was convict him for disturbing the peace.You can't go wrong following a man like that.

Heraclitus: meh... marry a virgin.tell her 4 inches is all the cock in the world.
senoy: Makes sense. The life satisfaction studies have been essentially given knowledge for decades. When you feel that your life is embued with divine purpose and your particular circumstances are of importance to a transcendent being, you tend to feel happier about yourself. I assume that the sex study is similar. If you feel that the bond you share with your spouse has been ordained since the beginning of time by God and is part of a divine plan and not simply hormonal rutting, you're bound to feel more satisfied with it.
