Sex In Church

Well, talking about it anyway . . .
Allegheny College's Ford Memorial Chapel, which conducts Catholic mass and non-denominational services every week, hosted a sex-positive class last Wednesday focusing on topics like the female orgasm, body image, and consent.

Of course, there's more.  What other reasons would there be for the anti-sex crowd to froth at the mouth about this?
[T]he sex educators had also told students masturbation is not a sin.
"Some people figure out masturbation and orgasm as teenagers, some people figure it out later than that," said Weinberg, describing her lifelong fascination with pleasuring herself. "And some people figure it out earlier than that. Like preschool age. I was part of that last category."
If that wasn't bad enough:
 "Sometimes it can be difficult finding your G spot by yourself, because it involves inserting a finger or fingers inside the vagina into the front wall of the body, and that kind of results in an awkward, kind of clawlike hand position," Weinberg said, demonstrating with a pawing motion as the audience giggled. "Obviously, there are better ways you can position your body. Or if you've got a partner, you can get your partner to insert their finger or fingers inside your vagina in the front wall of your body in a sort of a J curve."
The outrage!  A bunch of college students learning stuff!  About an important part of their lives!  In a positive, safe environment!  And some of them giggled!

Of course, pederast apologist Bill Donohue sent "a strongly worded letter" to the college President.  Apparently, spending much of your time defending boy-child rapists in the Catholic Church makes you forget there's another gender out there.

I have a rule.  In fact, on a ride to see our life insurance agent Friday afternoon, my wife and I were talking about this very rule.  There is no more safe place to talk about anything than church.  The fact that this is a non-denominational chapel on the campus of a private college unaffiliated with any religious denomination  doesn't make this any less holy ground.  While the college patiently explained to anyone interested that the space was used because it was the only one large enough to accommodate the expected audience, this doesn't lessen the reality that, far from being outraged that this particular topic used space also utilized for Christian worship, I'm glad.

Because, you know, God made sex.  It isn't like us talking about it is either going to offend or surprise God.  The only thing that might surprise God is that some folks are talking about it in healthy, positive ways.  Particularly for women.

Finally, I should probably add that folks who get upset over stuff like this really need more to do.
