Seven Days of Sex

In Grapevine, Texas, the sermon from evangelical Fellowship Church was far from ordinary. Rev. Ed Young called upon his congregation to have sex, and lots of it.

Young, a television host and pastor of the church told his members that the married couples were to conduct a “sexperiment? for seven days.

He said the experiment will bring about a happiness and content-ness among couples and bring them closer to each other and God.

Rev. Young quoted the Song of Solomon and Genesis as a way of justifying his experiment. “Two shall become one flesh,? or “do not deprive each other of sexual relations,? from Corinthians were a few mentioned, reported the New York Times.

The sermon was met with mixed reviews, but Young said he noticed members smiling and holding hands a lot more the next week.
