    Like bored 12-year-olds, we were googling "sex" when we came across Sex in Christ, a site which promotes sexuality in accordance with God's will. With headlines like "Anal Sex According to the Word of God" and "Threesomes Within a Christian Marriage," we're not sure if the site is a joke or a way for horny fundamentalists to justify getting kinky.

    Still, we were intrigued by their "Proposal for Christian Pornography." Sure, Christianity and pornography are two great tastes, but do they taste great together? Read the excerpt below and decide.

    It must portray sex within the context of a Christian marriage. It must be apparent through the actions, behaviors, and speech of the characters portrayed that they are Christian, lead a Christian lifestyle, and have a marriage in which their faith is central.

    It must be instructional. In their onscreen roles, the actors should model both correct sexual techniques and appropriate sexual attitudes, by being respectful and treating one another's bodies as the sacred gift from God that they are.

    No profanity. Although exclamations of pleasure are acceptable, as are the natural sounds and vocalizations of lovemaking, Christian porn should contain no profanity or swearing.

    No extramarital sex, unless it is to illustrate the downfalls of adultery. The spouses in a Christian porn production must never have adulterous relations, unless they (and their partner in extramarital crime) suffer and are punished fittingly for their sins.

    It must be uplifting and inspirational, focusing on strengthening Christian marriage and Christian faith. Christian porn must have an overall positive message.
    Of course, its primary message would be to demonstrate the sacred use of sexuality and sensuality to reinforce the bonds of Christian marriage. But in all other respects, it should affirm Christian values of community, family, faith, honesty, charity, and so forth.


    I like to consider myself a Christian, though admittedly not always a very good one; :redface: and I like porn. Yet somehow, I have never felt the need to mix the two, in order to justify one. Like many things associated with Christianity I think they have messed up the basic goodness of porn by adding too many darn rules.

    What's your take on Christian Porn LPSG?

    nice idea, like sugarless candy,

    and practical, I suppose- since human nature drives everyone towards sex (not just those who hold an agnostic or athiest view)...

    - but it seems kind of like a product that would be basically impossible to create, difficult to market, and one that will just help cultivate, in the mind of the viewers, an appetite for the regular stuff.

    I am I guess also a Christian. I also like porn. But as you said I don't think you can mix the two. If you think of it the bible teaches that every evil thought is sin. So if you and your "Christian" wife or husband are watching it and you think of having sex with that person on the DVD then it is sin. So I really can't see it working.

    IMHO

    Cheers

    This is a joke right?

    A Christian Threesome (Threesomes Within a Christian Marriage):

    (1) To avoid the impropriety of male homosexuality, a heterosexual couple should not under any circumstances form a threesome with another man.

    (2) Both women involved in the threesome must be willing to keep within traditional female roles (i.e., not taking on masculine appearance or behavior in or out of the bedroom) and recognize the male as the leader in the relationship.

    (3) If the wife’s lesbian sex partner is unmarried, it may be permissible for the husband to have relations with her only with his wife’s consent.

    (4) If the wife’s lesbian sex partner is unmarried, but the wife does not wish her to have relations with the other woman, the husband should respect this.

    (5) If the wife’s lesbian sex partner is married, her husband must not have objections to the relationship.

    (6) If the wife’s lesbian sex partner is married, the husband should refrain from having any sexual relations with her, and should make every effort to control his fantasies about her. He should concentrate his attention on his own wife.

    Catholic here. Masturbation is the big NO NO for us.....we cannot spill our seed. I think it is better for us to engage in adultery rather then masturbation. With adultery there is a chance of pregnancy, unless of course, partner is on birth control.

    That's one of the millions reasons of why I'm not Catholic since years ago . Adultery rather than masturbation ? That's really nonsense.

    let me start by saying that im not really religious and dont want to offend anyone.

    dickman, if u aren't allowed to masturbate then fair enough, but how exactly did u find out/ how were u told cos wouldnt it be a bit weird a priest telling kids that they shouldnt masturbate cos they will be spilling their seed.

    I am actually intrigued here. I wanna see some Christian Porn. Not really because I think it would be any good, I just want to see if someone can actually pull it off and follow all those guidelines. That would have be good for a few laughs right? Besides, there isn't anything in those rules that says they can't cast the husband as one of our own types, a meat swinging dude. Ok, gauntlet thrown, someone make one!

    I don't think that the site is a hoax. Though the first report of it made me laugh, it is really not surprising, on reflection, that there should be such a thing. People come up with all sorts of versions of Christianity, and it was predictable that someone would come up with a version that says that it's okay to watch pornography under certain conditions.

    But the idea of Christian pornography does seem to me oxymoronic. "Pornography" is from a Greek word that literally means "whore writing": by nature, it does not respect the bounds of marriage. A depiction of sex acts that respects the "framework" proposed on this site — in particular, the requirement that it be "instructional" — would not, it seems to me, be pornography. Pornography, as I understand it, is a picture or story or performance made for the purpose of generating sexual excitement in the spectator. If you depict sexual matters for the purpose of "[educating] married believers in how to achieve more sexual pleasure, intimacy, and closeness in their relationships" (as it says on the site), then you are not making pornography but something else — "Christian erotica" is probably what it should be called. Or maybe just "Sex-ed tapes for Christians."

    Actually, come to think of it, what is silly about the requirement of a Christian educational purpose is that any such purpose is purely in the minds of the makers of the material. One can imagine a Christian branch of the porno industry in which professedly Christian performers copulate on screen with their spouses, following story lines about marital love, and the product is packaged and marketed under the guise of celebrating marital love and all that stuff — but what difference is any of that going to make to the viewer? The viewer might buy into all this Christian stuff or he might be just watching it to jack off, as anyone would watch plain old porn.

    Well, it's not my religion, so it's not my problem.

    We were told in religious ed classes, taught by laymen when we were in high shool, masturbation a big no no.

    I was extrapolating masturbation worse then adultery.

    This is something some of my Catholic friends and I have joked about.....and really do wonder about the theological underpinnings as to which is worse.

    Both are, in the eyes of God, sins. Catholics delineate between venial and mortal sin.....the difference being severity of the sin. Some sin is inherently worse then other....it is a matter of degree, if that makes any sense. Some religions do not see the difference between venial and mortal sin.

    I do not want to get into some religious/theological discussion as this is not the forum for this type of discussion.

    Oh yes it is an open forum for this discussion. You've been a member long enough to have seen the theological discussions here dm. Masturbation isn't prohibited by the Torah. Can you indicate where it is supposedly prohibited in the Bible?:rolleyes:

    What is the Jewish view on masturbation?


    by Rabbi Mendy Hecht

    [​IMG] CRAIG: Is masturbation a sin?Rabbi: Masturbation is forbidden according to Jewish law1
    CRAIG: Why?
    Rabbi: Kabbalah is very explicit about the negative spiritual side-effects of masturbation. The idea is as follows: Your seed is the material by which you procreate; it is the genetic material within you that allows you the opportunity to partner with G-d.
    When we let human seed go to waste, we squander G-d’s sacred and divine potential​
    CRAIG: How’s that? Rabbi: When we use it constructively, we channel the Divine sparks and energy within it correctly, and it comes to good use within the world via children who in turn will produce more children, in this way continuing the path of humanity. When we let it go to waste, however, we squander G-d’s sacred and divine potential. (This allows for what Kabbalah calls “Chitzonim,” negative forces loosely translated as “outsiders,” to snatch the energy and convert it for negative purposes.)

    Now, my personal view....

    Masturbation...no big thing and it is an individual thing.

    Did I do it has a kid in parochial school....heck yes, as did my buddies.

    Do I do it now....yes.

    Do I do it has frequently as I did when I was a kid....no.

    BTW, I am married and bet most of you married guys masturbate too.

    Why I masturbate is my personal decision, as it is everyone's personal decision.

    Can you indicate where it is supposedly prohibited in the Bible?

    If you google "masturbation and the Bible" you will come up with, literally, 100's of citations.
