Atheists Have More Fun in Bed Than Mormons, But L.A.'s Porn Industry Teaches Their Kids About the Birds And The Bees
Sinners enjoy themselves more when they sin, apparently. While it might seem self-evident that the religious don't enjoy breaking the rules, a pair of University of Kansas researchers got to the bottom of this situation recently.
Here's the deal: Not all sex is sin. But how many of us are having it with married partners in order to procreate? Okay then. Atheists do it better. Or at least they enjoy it more, according to Darrel Ray and Amanda Brown's "Sex and Secularism" survey.
Why? You can blame ...
... religious guilt among church/temple/mosque-goers and lack thereof for many of the rest.
Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, Pentecostals, Seventh Day Adventists, and Baptists had the highest amount of guilt, according to the survey of 14,500 people.
Low-guilt fornicators included Catholics and Lutherans, but atheists and agnostics were the most likely not to have hangups about getting down.
Eighty percent of the religious felt guilty about specific positions and acts.
Almost one out of four people who said they were raised in strict, religious families reported feeling guilty for masturbating.
The downside to being a fancy free atheist? Kids raised in nonreligious homes were more likely to learn about how it all works through ... porn.
Glad L.A.'s other film industry could contribute the education of American children.
