OP: Couple learns they need to have sex to get pregnant after 7 years of trying....

I'm not sure this is true- I pulled it from another message board- but it's pretty funny none the less.

A COUPLE who went to a fertility clinic after eight years of marriage to find out why they could not have kids were shocked to find out they needed to have SEX.

The German couple attended the University Clinic of Lubek and had a series of examinations, which showed they were both fertile, website News24.com reported.

A clinic spokesman said: "When we asked them how often they had had sex, they looked blank, and said: "What do you mean?".

"We are not talking retarded people here, but a couple who were brought up in a religious environment who were simply unaware, after eight years of marriage, of the physical requirements necessary to procreate."

The 30-year-old wife and her 36-year-old husband are now being given sex therapy lessons while the university clinic undertakes a study to try to find out if there are more couples with a similar lack of sex education.

It sort of makes me wonder what religion this is and why it hadn't died out longer before now...lol.

I don't believe that at all. I am so sure that they never knew about sex or where babies came from.

Unless its a wacked out religion in the most remotest part of the world. And even then, doubt it.

I can't belive the guy never had an erection and wonder what to do with it LOL!.

i can imagine the guy in bed saying to his wife in the middle of the night:
- Honey ... it's happening again ... what should i do?
- Just pray dear, and go to sleep ...

oooh boy!!!

Sadly, I believe this.

You would be amazed at some of the questions that mature women raise in my office - with great embarassment. Nothing quite this extreme, though. One woman had been married ten years when her husband discovered that she was having a period and thought she was dying. Unaware that women have periods.

A woman reporting that there were noticeable spots on her husband's side of the bed and had been for years and they did have sex every month! What could be the matter? This, after twenty years of marriage and no children even though they kept "trying." Every single month!

"Is there some way to satisfy my husband without his sticking it in me?" That from a 35 year old. She went on to tell me how lucky I was to have remained single and never had to put up with that. I did not tell her that her older brother had once been very interested in "sticking it in me."

The deeper the ignorance (and I was raised in the Hebrides - extreme religiosity and sexual repression), the longer it takes to screw up the courage to ask.

Hiya Brandye!, long time no see, maybe because i'm not on the board so often as before.

Hey! I guess that as a doctor you get to see the most amazing things :P

TJdude, I thought the same thing. And along comes Brandye to confirm my worst fears. People really can be this ignorant. Incidently, Brandye, I found this in your neck of the woods. I originally saw it on the Channel 4 news message board.
