Quoting Quiverfull: Thongs Create Lust?

Quoting Quiverfull: Thongs Create Lust? October 21, 2017

Lori Alexanders Brainby Lori Alexander from The Transformed Wife – Nudity on Our Beaches

Editor’s note: Lori is on a modest rant/pearl clutching over her nemesis – thong bikinis! They’ve been around a long time now and I’m just not seeing all these lusting men popping boners on the beach. Everything she’s said in this post sounds like something that was said about those very early women’s swimsuits over a hundred years ago.

On our walks on the beach, I have seen a troubling trend; more and more women are wearing thong bathing suits and when they are laying on a towel or are seen from the backside, they look naked. Is there NO concern for children these days??? Where has common human decency gone? Do all these women care about is themselves, their ego, and what they want to wear?

Yes, these women are absolutely 100% being stumbling blocks to all of the men around them. I read what others write against me for saying this as if women are completely innocent concerning men’s lust but they aren’t! We are called to love others and be unselfish but when women are wearing thongs they are only loving themselves and being selfish. They aren’t thinking at all of the effect they are having on the young to old men around them and the children who are seeing their nakedness.

Aren’t their laws against nudity in our land? Shouldn’t there be beaches that are “family friendly” and we don’t have to see naked women all around us? Yes, I know that bikinis have been around a long time but at least they covered up the most private parts of the female body even though they are still extremely immodest. When women are actually showing off their entire backside, they have become naked which is continually associated with shame all throughout the Bible.

Bonus: Here are what some of Lori’s commenters had to say about her post.

Even a modest and cute one piece doesn’t quite cover enough now and I’m glad I can listen to my conscience. I like to wear a swim skirt too since the fabric of the regular skirt clings much too tightly for my taste and I just think no one has any business gazing on any portion of my backside or exposed hips.


Sadly with the proliferation of pornography and sexual immorality, yes, pedophiles is on the rise and parents must be even more diligent about protecting their children from them. You have a wise husband, Grace.


I think the thongs are sooo hideous! And in all honesty, why in the world would a woman want to show off… deep breath….something …poo comes out of!

Oh man! In one of the unquoted Lori comments she was upset that women as old as 30 showing up to the beach wearing thong bikinis.

    Here’s an idea: if men are so weak, they should just stay home.

    As I tried to explain to my sister, who doesn’t understand my aversion to the Duggars’ modesty teachings, no matter how one feels about modesty, each individual is responsible for his or her own thoughts and actions. We can and should control how we respond to things. Should I demand that stores not sell dark chocolate? It is so easy to stumble…

  • Finding Home

    I wish Lori would just stop going to the beach.

  • Tawreos

    Pro tip: Not treating the human body, that you think your god designed to be perfect, like it is something gross and shameful would help to eliminate a lot of problems in the world.
    Also, I am surprised to find that it is women’s bare butts cause pedophilia instead of homosexuality. I wish they would get together and agree on what slippery slope leads to what.

  • Saraquill

    I notice the lack of condemning men in speedos and thongs.

  • Cat Wisdom

    My experience is that thongs create wedgies.

    Honestly, she creates so many straw men she should sell scarecrows. Do you really see that many women on US beaches wearing tiny thongs? Maybe I haven’t been on a beach in a long time. I would think there would be more important things to think about. Like the economy sliding into feudalism, for instance? Or perhaps that boys that are not expected to have self control are being raised into men who actually have no self control.

    It must be fun to live in such a delusional world.

  • Shan

    Thongs create Lust
    Thongs create Wedgies
    So Wedgies=Lust?

  • AFo

    Someone get Lori a fainting couch and some smelling salts. Honestly, all I’m getting from this post is that Lori can’t handle anything in the outside world, even something as inconsequential as thongs. Just because I personally don’t choose to wear them, doesn’t give me the right to shame women who do. We all have ass cheeks, after all.

  • Cat Wisdom

    Ole Lori probably needs to pull some bunched up panties out of her arse.

  • Suzanne Harper Titkemeyer

    I know, right? I think she’s not going to like this video about Speedos.


  • Thongs? Well, if you like wedgies, more power to ya, I guess. Thongs just look uncomfortable.

    That said, men are responsible for controlling themselves. It’s not my job to police their thoughts and feelings.

  • Yes, dark chocolate should be banished. And marzipan.

  • A. Noyd

    “When women are actually showing off their entire backside, they have become naked which is continually associated with shame all throughout the Bible.”

    And? That’s just reason #23594 why the Bible is ridiculous and no one should use it as a guide for living their life.

  • Dress as modestly as you wish, Lori, but remember: standards of modesty vary, yours may not be valid for everybody around you.

  • Almost a chimp

    Ironically (not that Lori would recognise irony if it wore a thong bikini and gave her a lap dance) God seemed rather keen on nudity.
    The knowledge that A+E received from the magic fruit was that they were naked, so they cobbled up leaf skirts to hide their nakedness (from who? God made ’em that way and I doubt the animals cared) and hid in bushes when the celestial landlord visited.
    God, for the first but by no means last time turned into the Incredible Sulk, went ballistic and evicted them just because they had learnt about nakedness and wouldn’t let him see their sexy bits. The rest is, of course, history…..in a fictional sense of history.

    By finding the human body shameful and demanding it be covered, Lori is actively defying her god.
    Has she ever actually read the bloody Bible?

  • Allison the Great

    I wish Lori would just stop using the internet, that way everyone would be exposed to less of her bullshit and we’d all be happier for it.

  • katiehippie

    **drops knitting**
    Oh NO! People….. poo?
    **faints dead away**

  • Allison the Great

    I’m surprised there’s enough room for some bunched out panties to be honest. How she’d fit that, along with some dead bugs, a few sticks, and her head is beyond me. Seems like it’s very crowded.

  • Almost a chimp

    Question: why exactly is Lori looking at women’s arses on the beach? One could almost imagine that she’s seeking out reasons to be offended and people to condemn from her ivorine tower.

    Another question: why does her commenter need to take a deep breath before saying ‘poo’?
    I’ll bet it took her a long time to read the books of A.A. Milne to her kids.

    One more: What does Lori have against coherent writing?

    Do all these women care about is themselves, their ego, and what they want to wear?

    If I wasn’t blocked from commenting on her blog I might have suggested to her that all those women really care about is finding new ways to amuse themselves by pissing Lori off.

  • Julia Childress

    Here in Virginia we have to endure the horror of Virtue’s bare breast on our flag. I’m sure that this has caused much jealousy in wives, many uncomfortable questions from children, as well as many extended bathroom visits on the part of adolescent males. Not.

  • Julia Childress

    She’s a modern Christian and nothing screams “I’m more righteous than you” more effectively than being the first (and loudest) to be offended by something.

  • BridgetD

    I wish I could upvote you more than once, because this whole issue pisses me off to no end.

  • Waimak

    why did Jesus not tell that to himself?

  • And there are people who are turned on by modest dress, because there is someone turned on any style of dress you could think of.

  • Yeah, I’ve never found thongs attractive looking, because they look uncomfortable to me as well.

  • “Gee, my underwear doesn’t ride up my ass nearly enough, I think I’ll buy a thong!”

  • Shan

    There’snothing wrong with a lady checking out another lady’s fine bottom, at least in my world. However, I realize that, for Lori, she has to come down on those exposed behinds so hard she overshoots

  • persephone

    The video for LMFAO’s I’m Sexy and I Know It, would blow whatever gasket she has left. And it’s done as a joke. The song was used beautifully in The Young Pope.

    I came to love The Young Pope, which seemed to be a rant about the failings of the RCC, but was also a paean to true Christianity. Lenny journeys from being a saint to being a good person.

  • zizania

    So I’m sitting here checking out NLQ this morning, feeling crappy because my Lichen Planus has invaded my mouth to the point where it hurts to eat….and then I see this. Thank you so much! I really needed a good laugh. If I knew how to do it, it post a picture of Todd from Scrubs in his “banana hammock”.

  • Rachel

    Lol at the pearl clutching over “poo.” Amy Schumer did it first, and a lot funnier at that.

    Also, I don’t know about how “private” butts are, since literally EVERYBODY has one. I mean, I joke that I have no butt, but ya know…

  • Evelyn

    When I see thongs I have the same look on my face as the people in that Speedo video, but I can’t imagine going all religious about it. Ha ha that video!

  • Almost a chimp

    That’s almost pornographic! The mental image that leaves will forever scar my mind. Thanks ever so much.

  • Almost a chimp

    The funniest part of that comment (from Lori’s blog, not your comment, katie) was the idea that thongs actually reveal the anus rather than the buttocks. If her idea was that we shouldn’t show our behinds because we defecate from them, then it doesn’t matter whether we are dressed or not; if you stand behind a person you can see the area that poo comes from.

    In fact, unless a person has a strangely deformed rear, the anus is not visible even when completely naked unless the naked person has deliberately posed to show it.

    It has just occured to me that if Ms. Ohmygodpoopoo is correct, Lori had best cover her mouth in public, because of the tsunami of shite that cavernous portal of hate.

  • Almost a chimp

    I went to my local pool once and couldn’t figure out why I was getting hostile looks and people were shielding kids from me.
    Then I realised that my Speedo trunks had lost the ‘S’. :-()

  • Almost a chimp

    From the Op;

    …when women are wearing thongs they are only loving themselves and being selfish. They aren’t thinking at all of the effect they are having on the young to old men around them….

    Really, Lori? Are you that naive?
    I think that some of them might be at least aware of it. Not so sure if they’re aware of the effect they’re having on a certain shrewish, sanctimonious busybody.

  • Shan

    You are most welcome. =D

  • texassa

    This lady needs a hobby. (A hobby other than telling people how to live their lives.) Anyone who has this much time and emotional energy to complain about what other people do simply does not have enough going on in their own world space.

  • texassa

    Does she think butt cheeks are full of poo? And that’s why they’re so round?

  • Almost a chimp

    ‘Think’ is too strong a word for what goes on in their heads.

  • The Bofa on the Sofa

    In one of the unquoted Lori comments she was upset that women as old as 30 showing up to the beach wearing thong bikinis.

    Maybe I just don’t understand, but…if the problem is modesty and letting your butt show, why should it matter how old you are in wearing a thong? It shouldn’t matter if you are 18 or 30 or 70. It should always be wrong.

    To put an age on it makes it seem like it’s not just about the fact that we can see a butt, but whose butt we are seeing.

  • Olesia Lintvar

    Thongs are fine. They are simply a choice of underwear. What you wear does not determine the amount of sex you have. Wearing thongs or revealing clothes is not the equivalent of your consent. What you wear does not determine who you are as a person. If someone is going to judge you based on what you choose to wear, then I believe that is their problem and not yours.

  • The Jack of Sandwich

    I’m a man. Is it ok if I wear things? I don’t want to burn my feet on the hot sand

  • The Jack of Sandwich

    I think There’s a children’s book about it.

  • The Jack of Sandwich

    I can see her nose. The hussy. Doesn’t she know that snot comes out of that? Cover it up!

  • Derk King

    why does she assume ALL the men are salivating over them. I’d be looking at the other guys.

  • Derk King

    You’d think Kansas City, Missouri, being the heartland and all, would be so prude, but there are naked lady statues in fountains all over the plaza neighborhood, and elsewhere, and no one has ever made a big deal of it that I’ve ever heard of. Google Kansas city Fountains and you’ll see. Funny that Missourians voted for the dead guy for governor over John Ashcroft, Bush II’s AG who covered up naked Lady Justice.
