Although I’m not a Mormon, I was a virgin throughout college. My reasoning to keep my hymen intact was two-fold: 1) I was scared of sex because I was afraid of getting attached. What if I fell in love and the college boy who deflowered me ran? I had serious abandonment issues then, so that would have been a disaster. 2) Although I was a non-practicing Catholic at the time, I did fear that having sex before marriage would deem me a sinner. Was I afraid of hell? Nah. But I was terrified of feeling and being viewed as tainted. So, what does a virgin in college do to get it in without getting it on? Apparently, that’s Mormon soaking. 

What the Heck Is Morning Soaking?

According to, Mormon soaking is when a guy puts it in and just leaves it there sans motion in the ocean. It’s like a sleepy peen. A little pecker siesta. A snoozy penis. Y’all get my drift. 

Why Is It Called Mormon Soaking?

The term is associated with Mormons who belong to the Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints. Allegedly, this technique of getting it in without getting it on is practiced often at Brigham Young University (BYU), which is a Mormon college in Salt Lake City, Utah. BYU has very strict rules to preserve the students’ sainthood because Mormons are strict AF. They can’t drink alcohol, tea, or coffee. They can’t smoke or gamble. They rarely eat meat. They can’t have premarital sex, view pornography, engage in same-sex relationships, or curse. And they must donate 10% of their income to the church. 

Mormon soaking

Now, onto the subject at hand – Mormon Soaking! Here is a step-by-step guide on what actually goes down: 

  • Lay in a missionary position. 
  • Remain motionless. 
  • Ejaculate on her stomach. Because, apparently, men can get aroused enough from Mormon soaking to actually cum. 

And there you have it! You have done it! You’ve managed to get aroused and maybe even orgasm while maintaining your virginity, wholesomeness, and purity. 

Would I have tried Mormon soaking back in the day in college? Probably not. I don’t think the guys I dated would have had the self-control to not wiggle. Eventually, we would’ve had sex, especially since I wasn’t worried about condemnation nor were the guys that I dated or fooled around with in college. I may, however, give it a whirl today – for research purposes, of course!
