There is nothing bad bout sex, but some people feel that, for instance, the dining room table is not an appropriate location, because we associate that space with eating food. So, it is sort of like this.
So, maybe the bedroom is not the best place to set up a shrine,
but having a shrine in the bedroom is different than making out in a shrine room.
But then , getting mushy in a shrine room is different than getting shiny on a mushroom.
What????? The dining room table is off limits?
And yup, mushy is different than shiny
Thanks for your insight on this whole matter though. You've made me think about things in

Umm if the kids ain't around then anywhere seems to work well, especially the really big comfey couch

Great point, thanks for mentioning that.
I'll add doors to the altar
I'm making as I am still in
the process of constructing it. Also I really have no other place in
our house but the bedroom
. My girl is not a Dharma person either, but respects what I do and I also agree that in
the living room may make others feel uncomfortable.
Thanks for all the replies and some good laughs.
Kindest wishes, Dave
