    OMG, this caused me to continuously snort coffee the whole time I was reading it.

    That's funny!

    However, I wonder if it's really true.  My great-grandmother (without being too specific, thankfully) told me she and her husband, uh, enjoyed each other very much and very often, and she didn't make any mention of it being against the times.  She was born in 1898 so it would have been in the early 1900s that she was talking about...  Maybe she was ahead of her time. :)

    I agree with that-guy.  (Did I just say that?)

    It's OK.  Under the laws of probability, it was bound to happen at some point.

    It reminds me of all the romance novels set in old England where the brides are so terrified and are relieved to discover that sex isn't anything like what their mothers told them.

    Yes, I read garbage.  My brain gets tired of thinking all the time.  Don't judge me.

    You're right - it was bound to happen (and has happened before, but don't tell).

    Distractions are a fun and nesssary part of life (but hopefully not during the joy of sex!). :)

    I can honestly say I've never read during sex.  I can't say I haven't balanced my checkbook, but there was no "joy" involved.


    ....That's actually not true.  I do enjoy balancing my checkbook.  Embarassed

    I think the post Lucy linked was a parody and not actually from 18-whatever... that was my impression, anyway.

    For the writer, it probably was true. Take it with a grain of salt, she was the wife of a reverand, probably some extremeist sect. There are some extremeist sect women today who believe the very same thing- like the ones who say you can't divorce your husband even if he hits you because God won't approve.
    I think I can safely say this sort of mentality was the exception, not the rule.

    And women wonder why their husbands wind up nailing their secretary, or the girl at the bar, when they've cut it off almost completely by their 10 year anniversary.
    Posted by some-guy


    if they've cut it off, he won't be nailing anyone.

    seriously, this was written in 1894- allegedly- by some batty old religious cult lady. very few women actually believe or practice this.

    Thank goodness this was posted by you Lucy.  When I saw the title, I thought it was going to be some really condescending post.  Unfortunately, I am too tired to read that whole article!

    I could be really condescending, if I must, but I probably wouldn't really mean any of it.  :)

    I don't really think the writer was from that time period... I think it's a woman like us, who decided for amusement to write this piece based on generalities of "back then".  There's just way too much of the word "sex" in there for me to think it was really written by a Reverend's wife in 1894 and published by a "spiritual" publisher... but if I'm wrong, I think this woman had an incredible sense of humor because it's definitely written tongue-in-cheek.

    This was great, I'm making DH read it! 

    Gary Coleman and his 22-year-old (or around there) wife supposedly had a sexless marriage, didn't they? Perplexing.

    WPP!  I was just thinking of you last night.  I was trying to recall who got married in VT.  That was you, right?  Then that made me think I hadn't seen your name in a while.

    Hey fram! I got married in NH at Promises to Keep, but it is north of here. Laughing You're right, though, I haven't commented in a while. My pup chewed my laptop cord (my fault for leaving it where he could get it) so I have to steal DH's.

    Did you strangle him with it?  Surprised

    When the Oxygen Pirate's cat ate my cord, I actually managed to duct tape it back together so it works.  So, you could try that, but I don't know how bad it is.
