The Reverend Ed Young, who has four children with his wife of 26
years, says, "We're going to give it a try."

Young says he believes society promotes promiscuous sex and that
he wants to reclaim it for married couples. He says sex should be a

He plans to deliver his seven-day sex challenge while sitting on a bed in front of the church.

Young is founder of the nondenominational Fellowship Church, which draws about 20,000 people each Sunday and has campuses in Fort Worth, Dallas, Plano and Miami.

Earlier this year, a southwest Florida pastor, perhaps having more faith in his congregants' stamina, issued a 30-day sex challenge.
