The Sex Toys Ministry

Recommended Posts

I found this yesterday and it's buried in another thread, but it is still leaving me dumfounded. My pet peeve is when fundies call everything a ministry. But this one. There are no words. http://mybelovedsgarden.net/Home-Parties.html "and we will put you on a list to be the first people to be able to start you own unique ministry, business. people at the top of the list will be the first to be contacted with the details to get involved with My Beloved's Garden in this wonderful and unique ministry business." And why are all those women on the floor in a circle? Erotic fellowshipping?

TheologyGeek- the picture is creepy. But, did you notice how nice their racks were? I'm pretty sure I just got defrauded.

My favorite fundie blogger posted on Christian sex toys yesterday. Every time her blog shows up on my feed reader I do a little happy dance, I think she would probably be the funnest Fundie EVER to hang out with (not being sarcastic at all, I really enjoy her blog and she tells it like it is)

http://hotholyhumorousDOTblogspot.com/2 ... -toys.html

Her list of links included Covenant Spice, which by the name alone I had to click on. Hello! Dildo on the welcome page! I have to wonder how these websites can say:

Welcome to Covenant Spice! We are a Christian sex toy shop and romance site for married couples, offering high quality, feature-packed products that enhance lovemaking — at unbelievably low prices. Our goal from our inception has been to offer Christian sexual aids that help foster intimacy and strengthen relationships within the bonds of a healthy marriage.

What makes it a CHRISTIAN sexual aid? But I guess if they carry a manufacturer with a name like "Booty Parlor", and it's a Christian Sexual Aid, it's OK right? Or, if my god-fearing husband decides to order the Super Head Honcho Pleasure Sleeve or Climax Gems Hand Job Stroker, it's cool because we prayed about it. My favorite thing about this retailer though has to be that they carry the I Rub My Duckie vibrator, which just seems like a really, REALLY bad idea in a quiverfull household.

I find this all hilarious. My mother-in-law owns an adult store and the comments she gets from people are basically that she is disgusting, evil, a whore, whatever. I wonder if she slapped a jesus fish on a dildo if it'd be a different story. I'm curious as to how two different stores can carry the same products, but one claims to be Christian and it's a different story.

One big difference may be porn, if she sells it.

And also not specifying her sales to married couples.

There is a mode of thought within Christianity that *anything* goes "in the marriage bed", so long as it actually within marriage, and doesn't involve other people, either real or virtual. I'm not sure this site is necessarily fundie in the way the Duggars are, nor necessarily Quiverful either. Plenty of mainstream fundamentalists/evangelicals love their birth control.

I wonder if some fundies would consider the use of, ahem, insertable toys (especially the realistic ones) adultery? Can you Imagine if one day Smuggar found a vibrator tucked away in Anna's underwear drawer? He'd probably be devastated.

In my "branch" of former fundieism, this would have been perfectly acceptable. There is a huge emphasis to have a good sex life in evangelical Christianity, because it's thought of as a way to stop yourself from committing adultery or divorcing. I knew people who had sex every single day. My experience in evangelical Christianity (before my cultish experience) was that whatever is okay with each partner is okay, barring the "back door" )and even then, some is okay, just not all the way, and porn.

I'm late to the party, but did anyone check out the FAQ section on My Beloveds Garden?

According to them God clearly has a huge problem with any homosexual action, including anal sex.

This, however, does NOT mean that God has a problem with anal activity in itself. Not only is God perfectly fine with a woman receiving anal sex, judging from their products, there is also no problem with men inserting toys into their ass.

Isn't it great how God added all these hidden exceptions like "Sodomy is a sin... unless you have a maiden massage your scrotum at the same time" in the Bible that only the Supar Specul True Christians can decipher?

And how convenient that those exceptions all happen to line up with these peoples sexual preferences!

This must be proof that God loves them more than anyone else!

You know, though, I think that those kind of shops do serve a need. For example, I don't like the p0rn, so I'm happy that there are places on the web were I can get advice/ideas without having to see (perfect) naked people. The naked people thing is not about my husband--I just don't like seeing the perfect airbrushed women because it makes me feel bad about myself.

And, I think it's good that those kinds of toys and stuff exist, and that they are distributed/known about in fundie circles. I mean, if you have to have endless children, you should also be able to have orgasms, you know? And if you have to go into a secular "sex shop" to get toys, many people wouldn't go.

Although I do think that a list of do and don't for married sex on a sex toy website is hilarious.

I must confess that my eyes zoomed right in on the breasts, and I'm a straight woman. LOL

ok god is into anal stimulation. I may become Christian if they get to sue these toys and still go to heaven.

I told my husband about this 'ministry' and your comment and he's like "Bible verses on dildos? 'I'm gonna shove Scripture up your ass!!'"

Glad God approves of anal stimulation. :lol:

      My niece is going to be a seat filler at this year's Academy Awards.  Seat fillers are asked to wear tuxedos regardless of sex/gender.  If you see a pretty young woman with very curly hair, it could be my niece.

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!
