The Christian dating website BigChurch.com is owned and operated by Various, Inc., a “social networking giant,” which itself is owned and operated by Penthouse Media Group—which also owns and operates AdultFriendFinder.com, Bondage.com, and Penthouse.com. Wired’s sex columnist, the terrific Regina Lynn, who writes…
It’s not like BigChurch isn’t about sex. It’s just more subtle than a site that’s explicitly aimed at swingers. BigChurch’s function is to connect people whose concepts of sex are tied so closely to faith and doctrine that it can be difficult to meet potential partners in more traditional settings.
Many people who identify as Christians have a fairly secular attitude toward premarital sex, while others believe in sexual pleasure within marriage. A handful still relegate sex to procreation, and God forbid that you (or at least, she) enjoy it.
With all this variation, it’s possible that Christians benefit more from online dating than even kinky people do, in that they don’t waste as much time chatting up people who don’t share their particular beliefs. After all, with an online matchmaker, it’s just a matter of checking the right boxes.
