You want to get into these filthy habits.
According to a new study published in the journal of Applied Research of Quality of Life, people who attend church more frequently were more sexually satisfied than their secular counterparts. And this isn't the first study to claim that there is a magical "oh God" to "oh god" ratio. In 1992, social scientists at the University of Chicago found that women who were religiously inclined were the ones most likely to have consistent orgasms with their partners, particularly Protestants and Catholics. While this might offset some of our more traditional notions of sex-for-procreation, preserving the seed, and contact between a hole in a sheet, a wide variety of religious couples find their spirituality keeps them more in touch with their intimacy, according to Vocativ.
A search for these pious but never prudish couples drove us to a curious corner of the internet: the Christian sex blogs. Blogs like Monagabliss, Christian Nymphos, and CWives offer some surprisingly down-to-earth, practical, and real sexy sex tips.
1. How to Give a Sensual Massage
"Have your dear husband strip naked and lie face down first. You can use the bath towel to drape over his rear to start out with. This isn’t supposed to be overtly sexual, just sensual, and you don’t want to distract yourself too early! Drizzle some oil on his shoulders & neck. Start massaging at his neck and move outward to his shoulder and all the way down his arm into his hand and each individual finger. Don’t rush. Take your time and really apply enough pressure to work his muscles over… If you want to ‘accidentally-on-purpose’ allow your hand to graze by his penis that’s up to you, but try to work on finishing the massage before delving fully into sexual acts!" — Christian Nympho
2. How to Eat for a Better Sex Life
"Did you know that certain foods can help get your blood moving as well? Not supposed aphrodisiacs, such as ginseng or rhino horn, but real foods that help your nervous system function better and improve blood circulation. Better blood circulation = greater erectile response. Men aren’t the only ones who need an erectile response: sexually aroused women have erections too, in their clitoris and the tissue surrounding their vulva." — CWives
3. How to Initiate Sex When You're Not Having Enough
"Basically, initiate more, initiate fearlessly, and be content regardless of the outcome. This is incredibly hard to do, especially when you aren’t having much sex, or when you are getting rejected left and right, because it requires switching your mindset instantaneously depending on the response. It requires that you initiate with full confidence, fully expecting sex to occur, and then, if it doesn’t, to immediately change to be content with the fact that it didn’t, but if it does, you need to be fully engaged as if you always expected it to happen." — Sex Within Marriage
4. How to Have Multiple Orgasms
"Having multiple orgasms is a learned response. If you are going to teach yourself first, a bullet or vibe may work better then your fingers. Get nice and comfortable. Think of how you can bring yourself to orgasm without over stimulating your clitoris. In the past an ultra sensitive clitoris has been what has held me back from going for more but with time and retraining of my brain I have learned to get past it. If your husband is a willing participant then having him performing oral or using a toy on you first would be ideal." — Monogabliss
5. How to Safely Get Into BDSM
"If you are playing role-playing games, or playing with make believe non-consent, or she likes to play “I don’t want it, but I do,” you need to be 100% clear ahead of time that No doesn’t mean No and Stop doesn’t mean Stop, and you need to pick a safe word that means stop! Something simple, like red or banana. You decide, but decide on something. If she says “red“, then you immediately stop what you’re doing and get her out of the restraints as fast as you can, something is wrong, assess the situation, and if there is no emergency (if there is, get to a hospital), discuss what happened." — Sex Within Marriage
6. How to Go Down on a Woman
"When you are devoting your mouth and tongue to her clitoris, you can also incorporate your fingers during this time by fingering her vagina. You can use one or two fingers, lightly thrusting. You will help to stimulate the g-spot if you bend your fingers gently into a “come here” motion while inside her. You can also use the “corkscrew” method, by crossing your index and middle finger and inserting them that way.
You can easily add rimming or anal attentions to oral sex if you two are into that sort of thing. Finger cots and lube make it easy to graze or rub lightly over the anus while your tongue is busy up top. There are many nerve endings at the entrance to the anus and many women are surprised to find out how stimulating that area can be." — Christian Nympho
7. How to Think About Foreplay
"Don’t rush yourself through the process. If you start thinking, “My husband is probably getting tired of stimulating me. We should just forget about my orgasm and move on to intercourse so he can finish up,” change your thoughts to something like “My husband loves to bring me pleasure. I’m going to relax, lose track of time, and let my body feel.” You may need 15 to 45 minutes of foreplay to achieve an orgasm. Now, 45 minutes of uninterrupted clitoral stimulation would likely be painful after a while, so be sure to mix up the foreplay with whole body pleasuring, kissing, etc." — CWives
8. How to Get Your Partner Naked
"Tell her what seeing her naked body does to you. And no, I’m not talking about the erection, men. You don’t have to say that. We see it. Express the arousal, emotion, and satisfaction you experience when you get to see and touch the one woman in the world you’re allowed to, and deeply want to, see and touch. Tell her why it means so much to share your body with her and have her share her body with you. Say why you love having that view, that access, that just-you-and-me feeling. I don’t need to give you the words. You men express yourselves pretty well when you need to. Just make it a priority." — Hot, Holy, and Humorous
9. How To Do It in the Bath
"You start off by having the husband and wife both enter the tub. The husband sits down first, legs outstretched. The wife straddles him and is able to insert his penis. At this point both spouses raise their knees up so that their feet are flat on the bottom of the tub. You are now ready to make love in the tub. For a little something different, try having you both lock arms with each other under both of your knees!" — Monagabliss
10. How to Have Simultaneous Orgasms
"Slow down the 'sex-me-up.' You know what rocks? Slow sex. (Okay, fine, I like fast sex too, but still.) The point is that a husband can draw out his wife’s pleasure by thrusting into his wife at increasing speed . . . and then slowing down for a while. Plus, slowing down intercourse helps the husband to hold off on his climax for a while in hopes that his wife can get there too. If you’re interested in trying to reach simultaneous orgasm, slowing down may be needed to coordinate that timing. Also, if you finish first, you don’t have to stop! Keep the sexual encounter going until your wife is satisfied with her experience." — Hot, Holy, and Humorous
