or something?

or did i completely pull that out of my ass?
That sounds about right although I'm not an expert on Prince. I don't follow any kind of sex-leads-to-God path but I do think that the orgasm is a divine expression of itself on the physical plane but so are many other things--they just don't result in that kind of indescribable ecstasy.

Damn straight...or queer, in some folks' case...

Anyone else reminded of Monty Python's Meaning of Life here?

DAD: We've got too many kids, so I'm selling you all for scientific experiments.
SON:Can't you get your balls cut off?
DAD:God would know!
SON: Why can't you make it look like an accident?!


[...followed by the venerable classic Every Sperm is Sacred... ]

I'm also reminded here of an old Jewish saying that God created people because God loves a good story...

Anyhow, I'd venture to guess that not too many of us who do believe in God, conceive of God as some remote creature stuck out there somewhere, gazing voyeuristically in and keeping score..."Godliness" (or whatever term you prefer) is more about loving and honoring God by loving and honoring God's creation, as best as we know how based on revelation, tradition and prayer.

But I'll make sure to check under my nightstand, behind my bed and inside my closet before turning in/on tonight, just in case.

great saying.

sometimes, i really wish i were Jewish.

though being a Catholic and having a mother from Brooklyn, i feel pretty close.

really? and i thought God sat there taking notes and composing a "Naughty/Nice" list like Santa Claus.

i mean, if it scares little Christian kids into being good for a few weeks in December, it stands to reason that this would be a great thing to tell your peasants so they won't complaing about how you're tithing them to death and they're starving.

This is something I really struggle. I tend to think sex is gross and dirty, yet the Bible is all for it and that means God is too. I try not to think about God watching me when having sex with my husband. It's uncomfortable enough as it is. I'm weird.

Sex aside, the idea that God "watches" down on us is not entirely theologically correct. To say God is always watching us attributes something human (watching, seeing, etc) to something divine. As always, humans don't have the ability to entirely understand God and all the characteristics of God, so we use analogies that bring God down to our level in order to try to understand.

So no, it doesn't creep me out that God might be "watching" me do anything
