Which is the primary purpose of sex in Christianity?
Some Christian traditions such as Roman Catholicism continue to teach that procreation is the primary purpose for sex and marriage, and so oppose the use of contraception.
Is there such thing as a Christian sex therapy?
There are Christian charities offering sexual therapy and counselling, and churches hosting ‘anonymous’ groups for those who live with sexual addiction. Artistic depictions of sex pre-date the Christian era, with many explicit Greek and Roman artworks surviving.
Why is Christian sex considered to be disordered?
From that first principle of maintaining the unitive and procreative aspects of sexuality, we can easily see the reasons why Christian sex names some behaviors as being objectively disordered: Sex outside of marriage refuses real unity by refusing to give yourself totally to the other.
Is it sinful for Christians to have sex outside of marriage?
Christians are generally in agreement that abusive or non-consensual sex is sinful, uniting in condemning rape outside of marriage; and although there have been historic differences of opinion as to whether a married person has a right to withhold sex, rape within marriage is now widely recognised and condemned.
