Church asks for seven days of sex

(CNN) – Several years ago Texas preacher Ed Young called on married couples in his congregation to have sex everyday for a week. He documents this "sexperiment" in a new book he coauthored with his wife Lisa Young.

    I guess if I couldn't please my wife and was a pastor I too would say that it's all for God, that should get the legs spread.

    Those who have an active libido don't need someone to tell them

    Those who do not have an active libido don't need someone telling them.

    I have seen and liked Ed Youngs' approach to preaching. His storytelling ideas are designed to reach out to married couples today, like the baggage sermon – about bringing old baggage to the new relationship. What's wrong with telling couples to rejoice and enjoy all the pleasures of marriage, and reconnect in a very disconnected world that we live in. Sadly, many marriages and family were destroyed and or badly beaten during the last eight years of economic strife, and many families were suffered greatly just trying to manage the stress of everyday living. I am telling my husband, we need to do this too. We are starting tonight!

    You are missing the point. Did you read up onm why he was doing this? It actually makes sense and the goal is working together on your relationship with your wife or husband.

    They both look like winos.
    All of this is none of their business.
