The Sexorcist: Do religious families breed sexual dysfunction?

Dear Sexorcist,

I feel compelled to express my disappointment in your answer to the Madonna/Whore Complex column. I generally enjoy your articles and find your answers both funny and informative. However, your comment, “This brand of insanity is caused by growing up in a religious, conservative culture that sees sex as dirty, wrong or something to be ashamed of,” was a cheap shot that I find to be patently untrue.

I consider myself religious and conservative. I grew up in that culture and have raised my children in that culture. I do not find sex to be dirty, wrong or something to be ashamed of, was not brought up that way by my parents and don’t teach that message to my children. I was raised in the Baptist church, attended Catholic Church with my first husband and as an adult have found my “home” in the Methodist church. It’s been my experience at all three institutions that sex is considered to be natural, wonderful and very enjoyable.

While the implicit platform of your articles would suggest that you have an open mind, this comment suggests otherwise and may dissuade more readers than you think.
