Christians: Does the belief that you’re being watched limit your sexual activity?

metal_bucket asks:

Billions of dead people are watching you when you engage in carnal gratification of someone else (or indeed, yourself).

God is watching, Jesus and his apostles and all your dead relatives and friends. Any elderly pre-school teachers who have moved on since you went to college and that nice lady who worked in the public library who passed away last year and the smelly old homeless guy who used to sit on the public bench drooling and arguing with himself (but who had a good heart), he’s having a peek and shouting crazy stuff at you before (and after) you’ve finished and even Ronald Reagan, Roscoe “Fatty” Arbuckle, Mother Theresa and Estelle Getty from the Golden Girls to name but four people whose presence would kill an erection (for me, insert your own ones here), they are watching you get it on. They might even be discussing your “form”, comparing it to the last time, or saying stuff like “that’s the forth time today!” (I wish).

Doesn’t this hamper you? Do you try and forget this during the act?

Do you think some of them are cheering you on? Do the nice old ladies turn their heads and maybe tut and sigh or even cry a little? Does the smelly old guy shut up for a bit and stare psychotically at you like that guy in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest?

Don’t get me wrong, Estelle Getty was a lovely lady, but would you honestly want her watching you take a poo?

No, the sex I engage in is not sinful and it glorifies God.

  1. No. Because:
    A. You assume that the souls of dead people are conscious (not all christians believe this – it’s probably only catholics who believe this)

    B. I’m an exhibitionist.

    HA! Take that to the bank.

  2. I can’t speak for all Christians regarding this topic, but I think God meant for us to have sex…and a lot of it. Why give us the hormones if he didn’t? Women have a monthly period for a reason. He could have made us like dogs that only go into heat twice a year.

    When I was a brainwashed teenager I felt incredible amounts of guilt and internal turmoil when I had sex with my long-time, totally-in-love-with boyfriend…and then I got over all that guilt as I reached adulthood. It is man that has created the rules regarding female virginity…screw ’em. Those same men who made rules regarding female “purity” were also the ones with multiple wives and concubines.

    I think sex is supposed to feel great and be very enjoyable. And I’ll just pretend to be like those little kids that think something is no longer there just because they can’t see it anymore. If my husband wants to get it on, I’ll go right on ahead with it…and those heavenly bodies can enjoy the show.

  3. There is no biblical support for the idea that the apostles, or dead relatives or friends, are watching or having any type of contact/communication with living people.

    God or angels watching? No, that is not limiting sexual activities with my wife.

  4. Where do you get the idea that everyone who ever died is watching?

    I don’t get that at all. Never read any scriptute that says that everyone watches you all the time.

    If we say for a moment that heaven exists and that people in it can see earth, why would any of them want to look at people having sex? If the idea is that souls in heaven are pure, they would a) respect my privacy, and b)not want to perve on me.

    Then again, maybe Ingrid Bergman wants to see what riches she could have had if she was born in a different era 😛

    I wouldnt mind that God could see if he wanted.

  5. no, because i believe that dead people are way past that stage of immaturity

    besides, if you were dead would you watch your daughter having sex with her boyfriend, or going to the bathroom? perve….

  6. The dead are conscious of nothing awaiting a resurrection. My dead friends are not looking at me. lol

    As far as your main question… lol
    I have been married for 17 years and have 3 boy… 😉

  7. I don’t do anything illegal. However, it bothers me that I can’t do anything without feeling watched, because it only causes stress in my life, but in the end, I know I’m not doing anything wrong.

    There is nothing you can to keep someone in another world from watching you because you can’t even see them anyway. You can’t stop pooping because someone is watching, can you?

    What bothers me most is that if we are really being watched, why are there still bad people getting away with things while good people are being “checked” every day? That’s not right. I’d love to see a ghost get cops to the right people every time. Now, that is true cooperation!

  8. Sexual activity between married people is what is supposed to happen! It is a beautiful thing! God made it! I think God approves of sex between married people! Those in heaven are not concerned with our bodily functions. They have better things to do! Peace!

  9. I’m pretty sure they don’t care enough to watch. They probably have better things to be doing.

    I can’t help but think that they would at least respect us enough to give us some privacy.
