Here’s the punchline:
“Something that’s not possible in classic swingers’ meetings and clubs, which might even lean towards openness and promotion is this lifestyle. Visit our club and discover other Christian couples with the same interests and desires who find you hot – Christian Swingers website will make your life easier and give you more access to potential dating partners!”
And to further add to the hilarity, this was posted in a Texas newspaper.

I have to admit that this is pretty funny. What next, a site for gay Hispanic conservative Christians? Not that there would be anything wrong with that.

Texas. As my mentor Lewis Black said, “Fuck Texas”. I have so many opportunities to repost this, it’s getting redundantly boring. I think I’ve made my point.
But sharing is caring darutann!

My wife and I went to NYC this summer for a vacation. We had an absolute blast. The people, the food, the history, it was the best vacation we have ever had. And this is coming from someone that never wanted to go there three years ago. Not only would I love to return, I would love to live there for a year.

Well my friend Casper, I am from Binghamton NY. I spent the first 25 yrs of my life there and as a New Youker (misspelling intentional) I will tell you that NY State as a whole is far different than the gargantuan shadow that NYC casts upon the state. And the world for that matter.
Most of the state is rural. The Adirondacks are the largest unexplored region in the good ole’ US of A. Except by the Adirondack Indians several centuries ago.
Binghamton is the home of IBM, Rod Serling (we went to the same High School as did my father with him) the home of Edwin Link of Link Aviation Trainers and if you like to cook, Speidies!
Which I can claim a direct family connection to.
It is also the home of Eureka Tent and Awing which Sir Edumud Hillary used to house himself and crew when climbing Everest 60 yrs ago. Or so. Whatever.
The point of this post is Dominionist wife swapping which I find hysterical.

This blog wouldn’t be the same without you. This is flipping hilarious. I love the part where it said you can avoid the scorn of other “PTA” members!! I am guessing that the couples depart from the ole missionary style as well. Oh the horrors!

In the old Dudley Moore movie Lovesick, where Dudley plays a psychiatrist in love with a young female patient (in this day I have to clarify) there is a scene wherein an elderly male patient Dudley has been seeing for yrs and never speaks all of a sudden says something while Dudley is on the phone to this girl. There are 3 comedic elements to this: one, the guy decides to speak at the most inopportune moment, two, Dudley tells him to hush up and three, what he says.
“I had a dream! I was having sex with my mother and my father was taking photographs! Then I sprouted wings and flew around the room like a bat!”
Missionaries. A case can be made that repression causes deviancy and dysfunction. IMO, it’s far healthier to explore ones sexuality before making a marital commitment to another person, not after. And certainly not with others who are also sexual infants. This behavior is the result of the very Calvinistic idea that sex is somehow sinful. It’s called The Missionary Position for a reason.
I remember my son’s talking to me during their Freshman yr at college about kids they called Dam Bursts. Kids who grew up with no freedom and overly controlling strict parents who essentially went nuts once they were no longer at home. They were the kids who drank to much, partied to much and got in trouble because in spite of all the actions their parents took to ensure that this behavior wouldn’t happen, they were really setting the stage for it. The kids had no self control because they had never experienced being allowed to do things. The pressure builds up and the dam bursts.
And produces swingers. Their motto should be “We’re fuckin for Jesus”.

That was hilarious and creepy all at the same time. A truly modern invention. Here we have the rugged American individualism that so many lament as belonging to bygone eras. And Americans of all political stripes can be creepy and inventive. Alfred Kinsey is the king of creepy inventiveness.
“It’s called The Missionary Position for a reason.” – Mitchie
But you’d be surprised about the real reason. The real reason is to provide a bunch of degenerates like Kinsey with a lie to limit Christianity from having an influence in a sphere of human relations.
***The first use appears to be from Alfred Kinsey’s Sexual Behavior in the Human Male (1948): “It will be recalled that [anthropologist Bronislaw] Malinowski ([The Sexual Life of Savages in North-Western Melanesia,] 1929) records the nearly universal use of a totally different [sexual] position among the Trobrianders in the Southwestern Pacific; and that he notes that caricatures of the English-American position are performed around the communal campfires, to the great amusement of the natives who refer to the position as the ‘missionary position.'”
However, Malinowski’s book says nothing about the missionary position as we now understand the term. What it does say at widely separated points is that (a) Trobrianders play ribald games at gatherings during the full moon; (b) islanders who work for whites sometimes mimic the inept (in their estimation) copulatory flailings of their employers; and (c) some Trobrianders object to public displays of affection between lovers, which they term misinari si bubunela, “missionary fashion,” viewing such things as an immoral Christian import. Furthermore, Kinsey in his book claims that the Christian church once considered non-MP sex sinful. Priest conjectures that Kinsey conflated these disparate elements to come up with the missionary position tale, apparently never bothering to compare his faulty recollection against Malinowski’s words.
Priest believes that from there missionary position gradually took hold as a way of marginalizing the Christian take on things, but he suggests that Kinsey, whatever his motives, made an honest mistake. Others take a less charitable view of the sex-research pioneer’s approach to the facts. E. Michael Jones’s Degenerate Moderns: Modernity as Rationalized Sexual Misbehavior (1993), which Priest cites in passing, blames Kinsey for the discredited (by me among others) legend that the Vatican has the world’s largest pornography collection. Evidently having called some of the same people I did, Jones records the usual denials that the Vatican has a pornography collection, and traces belief to the contrary to Kinsey, who used to get laughs in lectures by claiming that the trove of smut he’d amassed for his research was second only to, or in fact larger than, the pile of porn possessed by the Holy See. Kinsey’s basis for such statements: A casual remark by a visitor who’d been to Rome and on seeing Kinsey’s collection commented (I presume in jest) that it was almost as large as the Vatican’s.

Although I am familiar with Malinowski, I didn’t know that. Thanks for clarifying. I didn’t even think about the elements of your last paragraph in regards to repression and porn (I mean really sick porn, not Playboy hetero) and the pedophile problem in the Catholic Church. The discipline required for both abstinence and celibacy is just to much for the physiology of our bodies. That’s why when normal expression is stifled, it leaks out (no pun intended) in some pretty awful ways.

I did find it interesting that the Trobrianders didn’t like the public display of affection that the missionaries seemed to show.
There seems to be a need in the West to show that native people are less ‘repressed’ sexually but in most ‘primitive’ cultures sex is relegated to the private sphere where it is the narrow slice of life that it naturally entails. Important, but the reality is that 15-30 minutes of passion will pale in comparison to the 15-30 years of childrearing.
“The Fateful Hoaxing Of Margaret Mead: A Historical Analysis Of Her Samoan Research Paperback” by Derek Freeman is an interesting read to show how much the whole Western World in the 1920’s and since has wanted to pretend that sex is not a narrow in life. The Christian swingers are just 85 years late to the party.

I haven’t thought about MM in years. I am unfamiliar with the book you referenced so I am wondering is it claiming that her observations were phony or that she was being maligned?
I have a collection of Harper’s magazine from the mid ’70’s and I know they wrote extensively about her. I referenced them but all I could find of any interest was an article by Arthur Miller about Richard Nixon, another exposing Carlos Castaneda as a fake and some ads where you could buy a Porsche 911 for $4700.00.
Oh, and an ad for how rotary phones were the cutting edge of technology.

Actually this was one of the big dustups in all anthropology. What happens in science is a science usually starts out as a better way of doing horoscopes and then at some point someone says why aren’t we doing science instead of horoscopes. That happened in astronomy, chemistry, biology … Psychology is still all about horoscopes since to as a real science it can only make bland uber conservative conditional statements essentially about the only group of people ever studied, undergraduate students as guinea pigs for psychology experiments.
Well, MM went off to Samoa and never bothered to learn the language. She did very little field work and mostly confined herself to living away from the Samoans. As the money for her field work neared its end she did some interviewing with Samoan women, asking them intimate questions. The girls thought she wanted to hear ribald tales of free love and so they provided the. MM wrote this up and a book Coming of Age in Samoa which was a hit in the 20’s and showed how ‘Puritanical” the USA was. College students loved it and decided the really natural way to life was to get drunk and have enjoy free love. The book was a bestseller and made a boring area like anthropology a hit on the college campuses.
Many years later a New Zealand anthropologist decided to revisit the subject, but with a more rigorously scientific point of view. He found that most of MM was a hoax, that she discovered what she wanted to discover. As the NYT put it
**”His challenge was initially greeted with disbelief or anger, but gradually won wide — although not complete — acceptance,” but further said that “many anthropologists have agreed to disagree over the findings of one of the science’s founding mothers, acknowledging both Mead’s pioneering research and the fact that she may have been mistaken on details.**
The problem here is that science is all about the details and the defense of the hoaxing of MM calls into question anthropology in general.

That was interesting indeed. It’s hard to not apply modern notions to history.
