    Story
    (37)

    Why are all the major religions consumed with sex? What makes sex so important, whether Buddhism or Islam, Christianity or Mormonism? What is the impact of religion on human sexuality? This book explores this and more. It ventures into territory that has never been examined. You will be surprised at how much religion has influenced your sexuality, who you marry, the pleasure you get or don't get from sex, and what you can do about it.

    Anthony says: "Dr. Darrel Ray's Masterpiece."

    Story
    If you could sum up Sex & God: How Religion Distorts Sexuality in three words, what would they be?

    Courageous, intelligent, and poignant.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Even though there's no real "characters" as this is an expose, all of the patients Darrel draws off are all poignant, moving and equally worthy of attention.


    What about Darrel Ray’s performance did you like?

    His relaxed and calm readings and clear and lucid explanation of terms and concepts. He's extremely friendly and warm and sounds like the most fun professor to sit with.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Dr. Darrel Ray's examination of patriarchal psychology in Chapter 16 and 17. His examination of how guilt plays directly into the minds and boys and girls at a young age and his clear breakdown of the sexual shame and indoctrination pounded into children was shocking and powerful, especially since as a former Pentecostal Christian-turned-atheist myself, made me tear up because it immediately made me recall how my sexual thought and urges were made to be shamed constantly. His examination of the role slavery and brutality played into shaming black slaves into Christianity was also deeply moving.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is truly a must-have. Believers and nonbelievers alike will learn things they'd never though were possible. We truly have no idea just how deep down the rabbit hole awful religious programming has dragged us into. Darrel Ray's research is incomparable and truly enlightening. You will never again think the same way about your body, your biology, your society, and religion after reading and listening to this book from beginning to end. I'm determined to share this with everyone I know.
