"Roman Catholic couples are being encouraged to pray together before they have sex.
A book published by a prominent Church group invites those setting out on married life to recite the speciallycomposed Prayer Before Making Love.
It is aimed at `purifying their intentions` so that the act is not about selfishness or hedonism." Read more:
Reciting a prayer before engaging in sex makes about as much sense as saying a prayer before blowing away Bambi to Kingdom Come:
"Oh Precious God, make my aim true and spare this poor deer from feeling any pain." Give me a freakin` break!
It`s during sex and not before that folks feel compelled to cry out "Jesus" or "Oh, God."
A little pillow talk is conducive to good lovemaking, but if you are going to recite a prayer before sex, you might as well take saltpeter.
Sex act not about hedonism (pleasure)? What kind of insanity is that? Sex is all about having a good time, and what the hell is wrong with that?
This is the kind of idiotic and demonic advice that you get from celibate priests who don`t know jack about good sex!
