Atheists have better sex lives

Apparently Atheists have 'better sex lives than followers of religion who are plagued with guilt'

It must be true it was in the Daily Mangle;

The article concludes;
"'Our data shows that people feel very guilty about their sexual behaviour when they are religious, but that does not stop them: it just makes them feel bad.

'Of course, they have to return to their religion to get forgiveness. It's like the church gives you the disease, then offers you a fake cure.'"

Another report on this research can be found here.

The research appears to have been done exclusively in the US, and I assume that it concentrated more on the monotheistic religious types - remember the Kamasutra? 

Americans do seem to have way more hangups about sex, probably because the religious in the US are generally more fundamental, however so do 'good' Catholics in my experience and I suspect that it has a lot to do with their strong stance against contraception. Though it is also my experience, I'm proud to say, that they are much more likely to invoke God's name during intercourse.

    Sure atheists have better sex lives is the only reason they claim atheisthoodism to begin that they can flaunt as all the rest do,they get to pervert themselves in animalistic sex and pretend God does not see or knows and choose living in the momentary fleeting flash of empty filthy (i guess that is supposed to be pleasure).?with conscience as sure as Dr. Smith's robot in "lost in space" yelled warning, warning-danger ahead. So God",they pretend to erase His Judgement that hang over them with the real sad part being to offend The Eternal God Of Glory Forever as though He doe's not care when He cares like no one can ever will. But as the rest of the world "I Will" as lucifer do as I will and long as I will God away "poof" No standing before The Throne Of God to take responsibility for ANYTHING I ever done...when you never had to begin with....JESUS DID IT FOR US FORGAVE US OF OUR DEPRAVED HUMAN NATURE..all we need to do is accept..and yes I feel very guilty having sex as a chaste woman not married when I understand not to do it, realising my body is a Temple that belong to God and for the record i rather find a trillion even a zillion to give away then it. Where is the fun in the un-nobility of NO VIRTUE...oh how ignorant to forget all the fun I'm missing in all the diseased, illicit sex. Have the world as I'll have true life!

    1. Well somehow I have missed out on your 'animalistic sex'. Have you got any phone numbers I can try?
