I have heard that at Mormon weddings the bride will rub oil on the groom’s genitals as part of the ceremony. This sounded odd to me and I tried to find info on it. Is this something that really happens? Thanks. [3344C]
AP isn’t Mormon, and LDS members not allowed to talk about what goes on in their Temples to non-Mormons. There is, apparently, some grain of truth to it. There is an anointing of consecrated oil on people’s bodies, but perhaps nowadays not on any private parts. The ritual washing and anointing seems to be done by Temple workers of the same sex. The ritual was apparently at one time more intimate than today, but I’m uneasy about trusting the potentially biased ex-Mormon websites too much.
