A nice discussion over at Alte on married sex: http://traditionalcatholicism.wordpress.com/2011/03/03/the-relief-of-penance/. It is nice to know that married Catholic and Christian couples can have good, exciting and very erotic sex lives. For someone like me, who often struggles with this area of my faith, this is good to hear. I have come to realize that there are many problems with the internet these days, which I will write about at a later time, but the honesty it allows for some of these discussions can be a good thing, within reason. Often we think Christians have boring or dull sex lives, or are afraid to be sexual; this is not the case at all. Within the context of marriage we see the best sex. Studies even prove this. As exciting and enticing as it may seem at the time, I know from my own experienced the fleeting meaningless of casual sex.
So here is to eroticism within marriage. As I mentioned in my last post, I have come to realize that the best form of eroticism is married erotic love. So thanks Alte, and to all the others, for sharing with the rest of us some of these intimacies that we normally do not hear about. It helps people like me strengthen our faith and understand better sexuality within a Catholic and Christian context.
