    I'm watching the movie "Lords of War" while working on my desk and sometimes glancing at the forums here (everyone needs a break ;) ).

    So Nicolas Cage "Yuri" is having sex with someone ... and she keeps saying over and over ... "Oh God...Oh God".

    Never one to mix the Lord with sex I'm not sure I understand this ... perhaps Freud or one of his buddies understood it ... but I don't.

    Now...I'm not complaining here ... if "Oh God" does it for you then so be it ... I just don't understand it.

    Does anyone here have a theory?


    Is it Catholic School Syndrome?

    Catholic Church Revenge?

    "Oh God" brings God to your aide in achieving a great climax?:eek:

    You think of nuns while climaxing?

    You don't know ... but they do it in the movies so you'll try it.:p

    Orgasm is just so heavenly why not let God share in what he invented?:D

    I don't think there's any blasphemous origin to the use of "Oh God" in sexual ecstasy, although there is probably a charge of blasphemy to be leveled at the reason.

    Think about the word ecstasy. No, not the drug. The psychological state. From the greek, ekstasis -- outside of its place (referring to the mind experiencing it, of course.) An ecstatic state has to do with the dissipation of the ego (the sense of "I"). Is it any wonder that the language used for that state in sex is related at root to religion?

    And is it any wonder that the crystalized forms of religion attempt to crystalize sexuality as well, to control it, to remove any rival from the "proper" ecstatic experience?

    Religion, over the ages, has defined sexuality as a rival: In wedding services, we hear that love between a man and a woman "symbolizes" Christ's love for his church, for example. In Judaism, the symbolism runs another direction - the Sabbath is personified as a "Bride," perhaps of God himself.

    Okay so anyway, historical/symbolic vestiges aside, think about what screaming "Oh God!" is supposed to mean -- that's when she's totally out of her mind (or else trying to convince you she is.) Other God-related exclamations are also tied (when not used lightly, as in valley girl talk), to moments of astonishment. You see somebody shot in front of you, you might say "Oh my God." Find a dead body, ditto... Or if you win a lottery maybe. These are all moments when you're outside the self, displaced as it were; ekstatik

    So you gotta figure she's feeling that state, or trying to make you think she is, or, even more interestingly, building herself toward that state, using a self-trained reaction to the ecstatic-associated utterance to induce a state of ecstasy.

    Unless you're doing her in the butt. In that case you just hurt her.
