I think this comment is very telling:


For women, however, spirituality was the strongest predictor for the number of sexual partners, the frequency of sex, and the tendency to have sex without a condom.


I think the researcher's view of spirituality and my own are very different.
kind regards

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Yeah, but if you want to make some time, it seems that the church might just be the place to hang out.

You might be right...
But at the moment I can't think of anything more dukkha-inducing!
I think I'll stick to maintaining sila, and developing samadhi and panna by sitting cross-legged in small dark room observing anicca.
Cheers

Geez, I am just trying for a little jocularity here.

Well I was always suspicious of all that "interbeing" stuff..sex maniacs the lot of 'em. One minute they are in the Meditation Hall, the next minute they are rushing out brandishing The Kama Sutra.

Sorry mate - I was after an argument. I just needed some self-induced brain damage to cut through (momentarily) my craving for cranky argumentation. Now that I'm ready for jocularity, you've probably gone off to bed!
Oh well...

“I think people have been well aware of the role that religious and spiritual matters play in everyday life for a very long time,” said Jessica Burris, one of the study’s researchers at the University of Kentucky. “But in the research literature, the unique qualities of spirituality — apart from religiousness — are not usually considered.”

According to a research measure known as the Spiritual Transcendence Scale, those qualities are connectedness, universality, and prayer fulfillment. But the data found that of the three, connectedness plays the largest role in spiritual sexuality and leads to more sex with more partners, often without the use of condoms.

“Believing one is intimately tied to other human beings and that interconnectedness and harmony are indispensible may lead one to believe sexual intimacy possesses a divine or transcendent quality in itself,” Burris writes. “In fact, ascribing sacred qualities to sex has been positively associated with positive affective reactions to sex, frequency of sex, and number of sexual partners among university students.”


Very interesting. Is this why Tibetan Buddhism and kundalini yoga are frequently more popular on college campuses then the Dhamma of Theravada?

Tantric image, View with Care

In all seriousness, probably helps to explain (in part) the countless sex scandals in "spiritual" circles, down thru the ages...

:thinking:
"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."

One thing is clear - I am hanging out in the wrong religion (and the wrong school of the wrong religion).

Story of my life... got into maths 'cause I thought that's where all the hot chicks must be... :rolleye: they did talk of strange attractors, group actions and Mobius strips, well I am still waiting to see any action... :cry: )

All the action you'll ever need is right there in your mind.

Indeed. If I suddenly drop off the face of the planet, it's because I've started my own sex cult. Or gravity stopped working. But probably the sex thing.
