Several years ago, Redbook magazine did a computer survey on sexual attitudes and practices (not surprising). What was surprising in the survey was they sprinkled questions about religion in with the study. The survey of about 19,000 women showed that "strongly religious" women reported more sexual satisfaction than with "fairly religious women." At the bottom of the satisfaction scale were non religious women; they are the least satisfied. Redbook editors admit to being "astounded" by this correlation. The editors' could hardly offer an explanation.

The "teaching" that physical pleasure is a necessary element in a good marriage is not the discovery of modern times, nor of psychology. This teaching is embedded in the Bible (notably in The Song of Songs) and has been appreciated and acted upon by people of faith for millennia.
