And then there is the tale of the Southern Baptist couple about to be
wed who came to their pastor with some questions.

"Pastor, when we're married, can we have intercourse as often as we like?"

"Of course, children; the Bible says 'be fruitful and increase in
number; multiply on the earth and increase upon it'."

"Can we do it wherever we like, not just in the bedroom?"

"Yes, I don't find that the Bible prohibits any places within the house."

"And can the woman be on top?"


"How about standing up?"

"Absolutely not!  That would be dancing!"
