Was sex more fun when you still believed in original sin?

To all former believers: was sex more fun when you still feared an all seeing, all knowing, wrathful God? For me, agnostic sex is still awesome, but without the fear of eternal damnation, it's not as risky or exciting. I also got a kinky thrill thinking the old guy in the sky was floating on a cloud, judging me. Thoughts?

Never once felt there was any sin involved. I quit the church before puberty set in so I did not hear the admonishments. No guilt, no kink either πŸ˜‰ um, wonder what that means. πŸ™‚

I never ever thought about sin or religion , as far as sex went. And I was still a believer back in those days , till I was mid 40s. I did, however, feel I needed to marry another Catholic..to make everything easier and make the parents happy. How'd that work out for me???? Divorced 20 years ago--lol. Damned religion.

It was fun...i never felt bad at all

I was a virgin until I lost my faith. Self-control in that area has never been a problem for me.

No

I got the reverse as a teenager. The JW's came knocking while my mum was out, had a conversation that seemed to make a lot of sense, and left me with a book. I was religious for 3 days after that, and given that meant God was watching me masturbate, gave that up, too. That was actually the deal breaker on day 3. I decided I'd rather have the release than the faith.

There's plenty of excitement still to be found in sex. Perhaps look at expanding your repertoire a little, if you have a suitably broadminded partner. There's plenty of stuff you can get off on the perceived wrongness and shock value of. I won't tell you mine, except that they're all perfectly legal and between consenting adults.

Playground of the mind and all, I don't have to believe in it to make use of it.

2

Not even a little. Much, MUCH better without the guilt.

And I’ve never been aroused by kink so... yeah.

Sex is probably more fun and certainly more abundant as an atheist. I would love to find someone suitable for a permanent relationship, but until that time I will just continue to enjoy life as I do now. If there was a god, and if I was damned for my proclivities it would be out of jealousy. Hahaha.

Ohhh brother, I gave up that thinkinking after Catholic school...lol.

2

I never believed in it. So, probably not.

That's the silliest question I have seen lately! I just never attached my sexuality to my religion. Although, it did appear it was supposed to be shunned as much as possible by the church teachings! But, then on the other hand, hardly anything out of my religion stuck to me! Maybe, it has always been true, what has been said about me...'I am hard headed, want everything my way, and I want behave nicely.' My sex life has never suffered, though! So I have no idea if I stuck to the question, but that is my story!

Thank you! I was going for silly.

You're right, but with this poster's question it's our leg he's pulling. πŸ™‚

@EricTrommater you will need to catch me off guard, β€˜for silly!’ I am deeply rooted in realism!’ Too much, maybe?

I was too young for sex then - so no comparison !

2

The thought never crossed my mind. Then again, I've been a non-believer most of my life.

Not at all..

Never gave to a thought, then or now.

Not sure I ever believed in original sin. That sure never bothered me. When young I worried about parents. I always avoided still married women. AND, Never, ever date a good friend's ex, even if he initiates the idea and presses you to do it.

I still waiting to find out.

It was the opposite for me.

Bummers! I've missed out.
