Rules of dating a mormon
Unofficially, though, BYU students have confirmed the story on message boards and websites all over the Internet.
If a Mormon has a problem with any of these rules, he’s welcome to his opinion—as long as he keeps it to himself.
So they do everything they can to keep their missionaries from getting hurt.
Missionaries don’t get to see their families, either.
While Christians are happy to go around turning water into wine and drinking until they pass out naked in tents like Noah, Mormon scriptures specifically forbid all the most dangerous substances: alcohol, tobacco, and drinks slightly warmer than room temperature.
Most of the time, this “no hot drinks” rule is interpreted as meaning “no coffee or tea.” That might make sense if it’s a rule against caffeine because caffeine is addictive. The Mormon Church is totally fine with people consuming as much caffeine as they can handle—just as long as it’s slightly chilled.
Mormons wouldn’t stand for this, and the oral sex rule got struck down within a few years. A rumor came out a while back that the students at Brigham Young University (BYU)—America’s major Mormon University—had found a way around the rules forbidding premarital sex by doing something they called “soaking.” Here’s how “soaking” works. They stay very still trying to make sure that they don’t break the girl’s hymen.
First, a boy places himself very carefully inside the woman. They figure as long as it’s intact, they technically didn’t have sex. But apparently, it was bigger than Pokemon Go at BYU a few years ago. The story, first spread by a TMZ reporter, was never picked up by major news outlets—which makes it a little suspect.
The church has a committee called “The Strengthening Church Members Committee,” which is sort of like a Mormon version of the NSA.
If they want to talk to them, they have to wait until Christmas because Mormon missionaries are only allowed to call home twice a year—on Christmas and Mother’s Day.
