It is nice to see a Christian minister with a sex positive attitude for a change. Of course if you are single, it’s more like, 30 days to contemplate sex. CNN and AP report:

YBOR CITY, Florida (AP) — A southwest Florida church issued a challenge for its married members: Hanky panky every day.

Relevant Church head pastor Paul Wirth issued the 30-day sex challenge to take on high divorce rates.

“And that’s no different for people who attend church,” Wirth said Sunday. “Sometimes life gets in the way. Our jobs get in the way.”

The challenge doesn’t extend to unwed congregants, however.

The poor pastor’s servers got overloaded and you can’t access his site to find out more details. And I thought this was a nice way to dovetail the previous post which hit upon the intersection of Limmud, Sexperts, and Hungarian Sexual morals of the 19th century. Suffice to say, it was an exciting talk.

Regarding the pastor and his challenge—you’ll have to have a chuppah for all that …..hanky panky.

  • Rabbi,
    I don’t understand if you are trying to be funny, critical, sarcastic, cynical, or approving with this post. Is this just the pot calling the kettle black? What are trying to say? That sex sells so the server is overloaded…we know that. That many right wing religions don’t approve of premarital sex….what’s news about that? That right wing Christianity and Jewish Orthodoxy are on the same page when it comes to many issues? Yeah, so.

    Rabbi…what’s your point here?

    If you want to say something profound about sex ,Judaism & billboards say something like “after a women gives birth she can not directly pass the infant to her husband because she is a niddah. She must put the baby down on or pass it to someone else, less she cause her husband to have impure thoughts. Ditto for the salt saker. As for the husband’s impure thoughts…who knows what they may be after seeing a billboard like this.”

  • This 30-day goal seems achievable…. The married folks don’t have to have sex with each other, though, right?

  • There are no morays in Hungary, sexual or otherwise. According to wikipedia, they mostly hang out in tropical and subtropical coral reefs.

    Don’t you all get this hidden message? This is actually for the Jews–because duh, you read it from right to left. See, at first the couple is indifferent, turned away, indicative of a frosty marital bed. Then after the “30 days” you can see she is humping her hubby’s leg, or doing the tango–whatever. Point is, they are In thirty days, apparently, even might think that she damn, they are!

    And that’s the only way to read it, because left to right–they tried it, and it was a failure.


  • Sexual intercourse among married partners – all month long – is generally encouraged in most Christian denominations. No big deal.

  • 30 days? I can barely get through 4. Who knows what I’ll turn into tomorrow. A drained remnant of myself.

    Hungarian baths are notorious for sexual promiscuity.

    How else do you think I was conceived?
