I like them. I'm not sure what you're seeing, but your link works just fine for me.

Their website is hosted at wordpress and for many years was accessible at just
christiannymphos.wordpress.com, so it seems recently they have gotten their domain act together and pointed it at their wp subdomain.

No biggie. Maybe in transition they had something screwed up but it seems like its working right right now.

Are you asking about the site itself? Or just the link problems you are experiencing?

Regarding the site itself: I like it. DH and I especially like their "Position of the Week" feature.

Why is "Christian Nymphos" not offensive?

Postby Job29Man » Sat May 15, 2010 2:49 pm

I just thought of something. Why is there a niche for a "Christian Nymphomaniac" site? On TMB I often hear "Don't stereotype, don't say that men want sex more than women! That's ignorant/offensive when you make those generalizations." If this is true then it will be self-evident. Why the need for a site that says "We are wives who love sex!"?

How odd would that be to have a blog/site called "Christian Studs"? Or "Christian Husbands Who Love Sex"?

Personally I'm all for the Christian Nymphos site. Just wondering why we don't automatically think "That's ODD!"

You know what they say about "Only bad girls like sex."

It's actually not so much geared towards "We are women who love sex" as it is towards "We are Christian women and we are allowed to love sex!".

At least one of the Christian Nymphos is a member here ... my guess is that she/they may respond to your post. If I remember correctly, this site was one ot their inspirations for starting theirs. They figured their audience would be primarily female, but they've learned differenty, which has led them to discuss openly w/ their readers if/how they should publish the feedback that comes from men. I think it's pretty good stuff that they share ... hope that's helpful.

I'm a bit of a fan myself. And I'd never challenge the site. It's cool. But just a bit of a mind bender for a minute there where I was thinking how odd it would be to have a site for men who love sex with their wives. Everyone would be thinking "Well, duh!"

So does it mean that there is something to the "stereotype" that wives statistically run out of sexual steam long before husbands do? It's not necessary for individuals to jump in with anecdotes about "Not me!" I'm talking about stereotypes derived from the culture of hundreds of millions of people. I'm finding irony in the cultural implications here.

The name is attention-getting because "nymphos" isn't often associated with Christians. The kind of woman who might be described as a nympho would more likely be someone who's a member of a group that is perceived as highly sexually active, such as a college student or a single urban professional. Married religious women aren't often thought of as obsessively sexual, thus the clever pairing of the words "Christian" and "nympho" results in a memorable URL.

I don't think there is anything to the stereotype.

I think we're looking at the damage done by false teaching in the church.

The CN site is a sort of spin-off from TMB. Most if not all of the original half dozen or so ladies who started the site had spent time here.

My personal opinion is that they go about 115% as far as I would advocate, but they are in no way past what I would call wrong. Our differences are minor and not something I can prove biblically.

All in all I like what they do, and I think they fill a great niche.

I am available to answer any questions you may have and will try to remember to come and check this thread.

Regarding our name, if you read our home page titled "What we stand for" it will explain why we chose the name we did. Right off the bat we do acknowledge that true nymphomania is a serious condition that we do not take lightly, but we chose to include it because prior to our awakening and finding like-minded women we often felt we could identify a little bit with the definition of nympho. Here is a quote from our homepage:
The definition of a nympho is “a woman with abnormal sexual desires.” Sometimes we do feel abnormal, and while sometimes it is with people who are not Christians it can also be when we are in groups of Christian women. Moms groups. Ladies Bible studies. A night out with our Christian girlfriends. It is not uncommon to hear women speaking negatively about sex. It is also not at all uncommon for us to hear people telling us that our sexual standards are rigid and uptight because we are so firm in our conviction that sex as God intended it is most intensely fulfilled within the marriage covenant.


Regarding why we would point out that we like sex as part of our url is because a lot of women in and out of the church are looking to be freed up in this area and for them, our site is available as a resource.

And thank you very much for your ministry. The name is catchy and causes good, thought-provoking conversation and consideration.

Job, I see where you are coming from-kind of like the phrase "hot water heater"-you don't heat hot water!! Why have a site geared towards men who love sex???? Don't they all? (Those who read here regularly know of those women who have deep hurts in this area.) I have been to CN, and I can see Paul's and your points, but overall a good site for women who go there. Keep it up ladies.

Its a good site. One of their founders is the one who explained sexual refusal to me. I'd never heard the term before. (this was like three years ago?)

I have to admit, I was a bit put off by their almost automatic flushing of even the most innocuous comments by men. "Male post - FLUSH." (in over 2500+ posts here,counting auto-pruned, I don't think I've ever once been accused of being harsh) But after they explained via pm their rationale to me - safe place for women to post without comments from men (which wasn't stated at the time) I understood. Its along the same vein as our "For Those who say No" forum. I never post there either. Sometimes, an explanation about how men think about a given subject, given by even the most sexually "awakened" woman, misses the mark (and vice versa -men explaining women etc) and I can tell they don't actually "get it" on some nuance, and I'm just dying to explain it.......BUT, that's what other places like TMB are for. I'd much rather a woman feel safe and encouraged in her marriage than to be discouraged by my input on some small point.

Anyway - Thank goodness for them and may the Lord bless their ministry. : )
