    prepstudinsc: evangelical Protestant here.....a mixed blend of Baptist, Presbyterian and Pentecostal (Church of God), although a good number of my family is Catholic, too. Figure out how size ties in to that eclectic mix and you will be the LPSG'er of the month lol

    Solis24: I'd be curious to know how some of our members from some of the more conservative religions find their way here (; It appears we have a member who is mormon?

    Tender: ok well i chose protestant.
    i attend a nazarene church regularly.
    my father is a pastor, i was a PK starting in 8th grade or so.
    well i might get lengthy here cause this is an issue sweetboy and i have been dealing with recently.
    not here to put anyone down personally, i just want to give my view and ask q.
    so, checked out this site because prepky recommended it to another poster on webmed.
    my husband is having some issues with low T and stuff, and we have had some touble in our marriage. i ran accross wewbmd one day by accident sort of, and i was intrigued so i stayed and now im hooked LOL!
    i am a housewife btw and have 3 kids.
    that said i checked out this site mostly cause i thought hmm. sounds cool. lets see what it is...
    hmm. had no idea :eek: !!
    anyway, i plan to just lurk some and post on the threads i have some connection with. might ask some questions once in a while.
    to further expound on religion issue, SB and i do not approve of porn in any way shape or form.
    that said, i do have some concerns on using this site, because there are some pics i personally dont approve of as well as language i dont use lol! ;). that said, its a public site, anyone can use it and i suppose yall have the right to post anything you want to. so if i dont like it at any time, i may leave lol!
    in order to participate with the site i have to overlook the parts i that may be offensive to me.

    i suppose the q i am having personally is that recently my dh has been viewing some porn, and has told me about it, and doesnt want to keep doing it. so in that, i would have to ask if being at this site, would hurt his feelings or not? :-[ :'( :(as he may see this as not being different than the photos he views. ???
    well the difference to me is that i do not come here to be sexually arroused, im here because it intrigues me, and such. i think of course the only reason he views the porn is that it is sexually arrousing.
    so what do you all think of that?
    if i decide to continue lurking once in awhile, i plan for SB to know im here. hes free to dig around all he wants anytime he feels like it.
    so im open for any q about my thoughts. feel free...

    Tender

    prepstudinsc: There are a couple of conservative Christians on here and I'm one of them. Just because me religious views have a conservative bent, it doesn't mean that I'm closed minded or judgemental. The bottom line is that I'm a human, I have human issues, I have human desires. I'm not supposed to drink in my denomination, but I have. I'm also not supposed to have had sex, but I have. This is going to spawn another religion topic like the one in Etc., Etc., but because I'm human, there is no way I can keep all the laws of my faith, that's why as a Christian, I believe in grace. That is a whole other topic that I won't get started on. One can be conservative and be on here, however.

    Well, there are well-endowed members of many denominations, conservative or otherwise. They have size-related issues like the rest of us. Because of the relative anonymity available here, visiting a site like this is likely to be more comfortable for them than discussing their concerns with someone face to face, especially if that other person shares the same conservative background. So we're not doctors or professional counselors, but we offer our support where we can.

    Dantesco: Tender, I have no desire to criticize your views. You have every right to hold them. But please keep in mind that this is a site dedicated to the ins and outs (so to speak) of the realm of large penes. Photos of a frank and explicit nature and language of a frank and explicit nature are to be expected. Those on the EZboard version of LPSG will remember that EZboard began replacing "offensive" words with symbols. The word "cock" showed up as "@#%$", for example. I have no desire to return to such censorship. Though I respect your sense of propriety I think LPSG is fine the way it is, strong language and all. It tends to be more "honest" that way.

    Solis24: Well I didn't mean to be insulting of the more conservative here, not in anyway, it's just that where I come from, conservative means someone who, among other things, cannot even talk to himself about issues dealing with sex. This thought was prompted by seeing one person answering Mormon in this survey and, well, the 6 Mormon missionaries that I have met thus far were reluctant to discuss anything that has to do with sex, with the exception of abstinence and reserving sexual intercours for procreation. They couldn't even speak the proper words without turning red (; I'm glad to see not all conservative religious people are like that! Thank heavens, so to speak...

    A bit of advice: The term "shamanism"...generally offensive, as it connotes use of hallucinogens.

    Tender: ah.
    no i dont go for censorship either. :mad: and obviously this IS a penis site, so i got no problem. i like the honesty thats why im here... and the symbols would be annoying.
    so dont worry im not here to stir the pot. ;)
    i guess when i read the post, i sort of thought, well yeah, some may see that as double standard type thing to use this site and claim to be a conservative. so i tried to explain that according to me personally. maybe i misunderstood. ?
    and it depends on ones idea of conservative lol
    so i thought id just explain a little about my story and such, what i believe... everyone has their own boundaries and makes their own choices. and this site gives freedom to do that.
    as far as conservitive = blush at sex, well thats not me! ;)
    i like sex and i have no problem talking openly about it. i think God intended sex to be for enjoyment not only for procreation. some conservatives are the blush type, but oh well thats their loss...
    i really liked what DoubleMeatWhopper said there, fully agree.
    hope this clears up any confussion i may have caused.
    and please dont feel defensive, cause my earlier reply wasnt meant to be that way... :)
    Tender

    I beg to differ. Jewish mothers invented guilt; Catholic mothers and nuns perfected it!

    wvalady1968: Tender, you sound like a very caring wife and cool lady.

    I don't want to step on your toes re porn because I, too, believe in rights. I suppose my philosophy is summed up with what a friend said, "I don't care where my husband gets his appetite, as long as he eats at home."

    I hope you do stay and join in the discussions. You sound like a good person. :-*
