I haven't noticed that much of a difference between when my wife and I were Mormons and now that we are atheists. But, I have heard from a number of former Mormon couples who said the sex got better after no longer believing.

I think a lot of it comes from how much people allow themselves to be controlled by what others say. Religions often impose specific guidelines on matters like these when they are not "spelled" out in the bible.

I wonder how many religious people today think oral sex or anal sex with your spouse is frowned upon by God. I think many religious people would not think it is wrong, but the hardcore, conservative Christians probably still think oral and anal sex with a spouse are not appropriate.

I'd imagine that sex would get a lot better once a couple left the mindset that oral sex is bad. Many women have great difficulty reaching orgasm without oral sex or at least with some direct stimulation of the clitoris.

'Religion' is a pretty broad term. Some religions mandate lots of unrestricted, no-holds-barred sex. And if you feel guilty about all the religion-sex you have to do penance.

I think it is mainly the Abrahamic religions that have huge sexual hangups.

Of course in the Western world, non-Abrahamic religions are not considered true religions but rather, "a bunch of savage heathens having sex in the mud." :-)
