People who leave religion to seem to be the ones who tried hardest and who have invested those most time into soul-searching.

There are themes of intense searching, bible reading, efforts to conform and find the promises of their religion, only to fail time and again. Ironically, the intense searching, bible reading and attempts to understand led many to recognize there were many things they were not being told and much was hidden or poorly explained.

  • The more sexually restrictive a religion is the more it uses guilt.

  • Conservative religions teach guilt and proscribe many behaviors such as sex before marriage, masturbation, oral sex and sex outside of marriage, and use religious based approaches to sex education with emphasis on abstinence only, failing to teach about birth control, condom use and abortion.

  • Biology seems to trump religion despite the millions of dollars and hours devoted to teaching religious children how to behave within their

    religious restrictions. Other general studies of sexuality show that 95% all adults have had premarital sex by the time they marry including, we believe, most ministers who tout abstinence only.

  • The religious kids were learning from sexual experience more than the less religious!

  • Most religions preach incessantly against pornography, yet it is the religious

    children in this sample that used it more.

.

  • It appears that the things religions preach against most – sexual experimentation, pornography and the Internet – are what religious kids may use the most, while failing to talk to their parents.

  • Non-religious kids seem to be following the religious proscriptions better than the religious ones.

  • For the most religious, getting religion out of their lives seemed to make a huge difference in their sex life.

  • Those from the most guilt based religions would show the greatest drop in guilt and biggest increase in sexual satisfaction.

  • If porn is as bad as religions say it is, they aren’t doing a very good job of keeping it out of the hands of children and adolescents, 20% or more of both groups said they were using porn by 12 years old. For all the billboards and sermons against porn, there seems to be little return on the investment.

  • We were most interested in religion’s effect on porn use. If religion’s proscriptions are effective, we should see a clear difference between those who are most and least religious in the teen years when they are getting strong messages from their religion about sex. Looking only at men, we can see that there is very little difference between the groups. This suggests that the effect of religion is negligible for men.

Looking only at men, we can see that there is very little difference between the groups. This suggests that the effect of religion is negligible for men.

 

  •  The moral of this story, if you want a good sex life, don’t get  involved with a highlyreligious person. Many in our sample seem to have taken that path. Of those that do have highly religious spouses, the majority have sexual problems in the relationship. 

  • The main benefit that people  express is the ability to just enjoy sex without guilt.

    Over and over people said, they are much happier and fulfilled not only in their sex life,but in the rest of their life as well since leaving religion.

  •  Guilt messages have remarkably little measurable effect on actual behavior. As in other surveys, our results show that religion has a slight effect in delaying the onset of sexual activity.

  • Religious parents are perceived to be poorer at sex education compared to less religious parents, though neither are particularly good at it.

  • Religion simply ignores biology and creates psychological states that interfere

    with appropriate sexual expression and development. Teaching guilt and shame around things that are perfectly natural. Religion impacts how people see their bodies and express their sexuality whether gay, lesbian or straight. Religions have nothing to say about our biology. They are in large measure clueless about hormones, braindevelopment, attraction factors, body image formation and many other things.

  • If parents and schools spent as much time teaching kids about safe and enjoyable sex as they do teaching about safe driving, there would be fewer

    unwanted pregnancies, less disease, fewer abortions and far less guilt and shame that lead people to make poor decisions about partners and behavior.

  • Eliminate guilt and shame around sex, and religions have very little to work with.

  • Religions cannot claim that their ideas and principles actually impact

    behavior or make people happier.

  • We can also see that religion creates guilt and shame around the most basic sexualact, masturbation, but has no effect on its practice. 

  • Condemning children for masturbating, telling them they will go to hell or suffer in thislife for doing it, is child abuse pure and simple.

  • Religion uses sex for purposes of propagation not the happiness of its adherents.

  • There is ample evidence in this survey, that one of the best things one can do to

    improve your sex life is leave religion, especially if you were in a conservative religion.

  • We have seen that stigmas, shame and guilt do not work in preventing or stopping behavior, but they do make people feel sexually miserable.

  • 95% of Americans have sex before marriage. Your minister probably had sex beforemarriage but he tells you not to. Protect yourself, use a condom.

  • Adolescents and young adults are in a critical time trying to

    establish their sexual identity. Religion intentionally plays upon the doubts and fears of youth to infect them with medieval ideas of sexuality.

Society, the church, your parents and an endless number of other programmers dictated which paths are acceptable. You were trained like a dog to experience guilt and fear of loss when you made perceived mistakes according to the dogma of that specific group or person.

IMPORTANT NOTE!

Please note that I post a wide range of subject matter on this blog. You might enjoy most, but also find stuff that you find offensive and unacceptable. I suggest that you simply skip the stuff that you don’t like and look at the massive volume of other material I address in most posts. Please also don’t JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS and think that I support the point of view of the material posted. I believe that we must be bold and look at everything if we are real students and want to grow and mature. It is always a good idea to suspend your judgement when you read something and avoid simply filtering out stuff that do not match your current point of view. No growth is possible if you are not brave or bold enough to look at subject matter from perspective that is outside your current belief system. It is silly to conclude that stuff that oppose your current point of view is wrong or defective. Remember that everything that you currently hold onto in your filter system is nothing more than perceptions you formed since early childhood.

  • There is ample evidence in this survey, that one of the best things one can do to

    improve your sex life is leave religion, especially if you were in a conservative religion.

  • We have seen that stigmas, shame and guilt do not work in preventing or stopping behavior, but they do make people feel sexually miserable.

  • 95% of Americans have sex before marriage. Your minister probably had sex beforemarriage but he tells you not to. Protect yourself, use a condom.

  • Adolescents and young adults are in a critical time trying to

    establish their sexual identity. Religion intentionally plays upon the doubts and fears of youth to infect them with medieval ideas of sexuality.
