"What You Say During Sex Reflects On YOU"

One of those Classic MetaFilter Arguments about Atheism included the following comment: “So the next time I’m in a motel room and I hear the neighbor’s headboard banging against the wall and screams of “Oh My Non-Entity, OH MY NON-ENTITY!,” I’ll know there’s a [member of Metafilter] in the house.”

Now, long before my own personal anti-religious epiphany, I genuinely questioned the general propriety of invoking the name of the Deity before or during orgasm. And I have since come to the conclusion that the person crying out “Oh My God!” is very simply denying their partner the credit which they deserve. Of course, in some cases, it is used in order to avoid having to actually remember the name of the person you’re in the heat of passion with, and then there are some people who hear “Oh My God!” and believe it refers to them. (from an early unreleased version of Carly Simon’s song “You’re So Vain… I’ll bet you think this moan is about you…”)
