I’m not the first to observe that American evangelicals have been taking over the sex agenda. But you have to take your hat off to (Ir)Reverend Ed Young, who challenged his congregation to keep it up for a week. You have to take something off, at any rate. Perhaps the cap on the Viagra bottle?
“I’m going to challenge you to have sex with your spouse for seven straight days,” says Irrev. Ed. Seven straight days of sex with your spouse. It’s not seven days of straight sex with your spouse, so we’re allowed to go beyond vanilla, which is always nice. Nor is it sex for seven days with your straight spouse, so I’m guessing same-sex marrieds are allowed to take the challenge. But it does appear to be seven days without a break. I’m all for lots of sex, but seven straight days? What about those essential post-orgasmic pee breaks? What about a slap-up breakfast or an inter-course glass of wine? I think I’d need both by halfway through day 2.
Maybe the good pastor meant seven days in a row. In the same way that the abstinence fundamentalists probably meant to recommend 101 Fun Things to do INSTEAD of having sex, rather than BESIDES having sex. Or maybe evangelicals really are more adventurous that I thought.

If you want to help them raise money to keep producing their fabulous sex videos and are still looking for last-minute christmas presents, the humping bull T-shirt comes in various shapes and sizes. Enough to wear a different one seven days in a row…
