Married Practicing Catholics Feel Most Loved in Sex, Study Finds

Catholic WeddingU.S. News & World Report has an article up featuring the findings of a survey reporting that "Devout, married Catholics have the best sex of any demographic group." 

The data was presented in a talk given by Dr. Patrick Fagan at the Family Research Council on July 17.  Dr. Fagan's talk,  "Porn in the Dorm: The Impact of Pornography on College Campus Life" was co-sponsored by The Cardinal Newman Society's Center for the Advancement of Catholic Higher Education.

Here's more from the report:

[Family Research Council] relied heavily on statistics from the University of Chicago's last National Health and Social Life Survey, conducted in 1992, which found the most enjoyable and most frequent sex occurring among married people, those who attended church weekly – any church, whether Catholic or not – and people who had the least sexual partners.

"Those who worship God weekly have the best sex," said Patrick Fagan, a senior fellow at the Family Research Council and a former George H.W. Bush official, in a talk hosted with the Center for the Advancement of Catholic Higher Education Wednesday. ...

Fagan said the group was working on gathering more recent data on sexual enjoyment, but that the existing statistics spoke for themselves, and specifically as they relate to Catholics. ...

But the Family Research Council, which promotes traditional family values, also cautioned Wednesday of the possible negative effects of enjoying sex outside of marriage, or of watching porn. Among the effects: poverty, domestic abuse, crime, drug addiction and loss of a job, according to the group. ...

"What we have here is a pagan sexuality," he said, decrying the growing presence of pornography in dorms and among married couples. "Homosexuality, infidelity, euthanasia, infanticide – these were all common sexual practices of pagan Rome. Christians were for being very different, for being monogamous, faithful." 

Much of Dr. Fagan's presentation is published on the Center for the Advancement of Catholic Higher Education website in a study titled "The Effects of Pornography on Individuals, Marriage, Family and Community."
