    I hope I'm correct in saying that we never feel so good as during/after sex.
    For want of a better description I'll say it's "spiritual".

    How does your religion (or lack of) impact on your sex-life?

    What do the major religions have to say about sex?

    I don't like the word 'spiritual' in this case.

    'Spiritual' seems to me a feeling of harmony with some kind of higher order: the Tao, nature, a god, a community, etc.

    Whereas ideally (at least to me) a sexual experience makes me forget a larger world even exists. 😛

    i think a lack of religion removes guilt (some) from sex. despite my non spirituality im actually divided on feelings towards sexual liberation. part of me agrees with the idea that eventually sex should become a non taboo thing with all stigma being removed and people being set free to do as they wish without judgement. i like the idea that talking about it becomes the norm, with nobody getting uncomfortable.

    on the other hand i like the idea of sex being reserved a kinda secret between two people, a private sharing of something intimate. without forming a bond first a singular night of passion sometimes feels like it detracts from when it is more meaningful and should possibly be discouraged (if think, maybe??)

    there is probably a happy medium somewhere in between.

    Ah ha ha, I am a Catholic and I can tell you that as far as I am concerned,
    spirituality has nothing to do with sex. The only reason you feel good
    is because you have completely given in to all of your basic natural
    animal instincts and you act accordingly.

    The rest of the time you are not being true to yourself.
    Outside of sex and violence the face we show the world is false.

    It is only during sex or violence that you truly show your true self.

    That's why sex sells. Advertisers have used pretty models to sell
    products for decades.

    Sex sells because it is successful and reveals the true nature of humanity.

    Violence shows your true nature as well.

    That's why the most successful Movies and TV show always include
    sex and violence.

    Look at the latest batch of award winning TV shows,
    among the top are Spartacus and Game of Thrones.

    2 shows that feature a hell of a lot of sex and violence.

    It always amazes me to see the use of language, and the reaction to language, religious people use when comes it to matters of the flesh. Clean, unclean, unhygienic and rutting dogs are a few that spring to mind.

    It's my belief that everyone wears a mask of convenience.
    you could know someone for 50 years and they could still
    surprise you.

    Very few people open up to reveal their true nature.
    They are too afraid to do so because of many reasons.
    Fear of rejection, lack of confidence, afraid to show any
    sign of vulnerability, all sorts of reasons.

    I don't wear any mask. I am who I am. If you don't like me then fine.

    i get what you are saying, but i see it slightly different. i dont see the different masks as lies or not the 'real' us. i think they are all us, we act different in different situations.

    the 'true' you that you mention, i think is just another one of those 'masks'.

    we are social creatures and subconsciously tweaking who we are and how we act is all part of survival by trying to fit into a group or role.

    i think some people sometimes consciously live a lie, put on an act and know they are. these people i think can usually be easily spotted. our subconscious can usually read the subtle body langue give away's that somebody is a fake.
