- Here are some of the problems highly religious people deal with when it comes to sexual activities with their spouses
Have you ever met someone who is incredibly religious that he or she intentionally makes you feel less of a human being for being who you are?
Well, religion aside, some of these people who are staunch Christians have their own problems that are not often talked about.
These issues involve their sexual lives.
Having been brought up to see sex as a sin outside marriage, they buried their noses in Holy Books and listened to every cautionary tale out there about why you should wait until marriage to have sex.
As one writer at a local daily put it, these people suffer from religious guilt once they achieve statuses that allow them to enjoy sex within the parameters that God intended it for- marriage.
Here are some of the problems some of them face:
1. High anxiety levels
The thought of getting naked in front of a spouse who is not as religious is cause for being overwhelmed.

Getting into bed together is another battle to be fought. These people are not comfortable with their bodies and delay penetration. Most of them end up putting sexual intimacy on the back burner or it is highly affected if they keep trying.
2. Slow to embrace sex
They feel ashamed to embrace sex as well as harbour the feelings of being inadequate for their partner’s needs.
This is because they have been brought up in a conservative environment having been taught to shun ‘worldly’ behaviors.

Their inability to let go of their sexual purity even in marriage is cause for problems with a spouse who is not accommodating of their pace.
3. Self-esteem issues
They feel that their bodies are inadequate because they are not like everyone else who embrace and enjoy sex readily.
Their mentality is weak and often cling on to their spouses for re-affirmation of their self-worth and as lovers.
