    A spin-off from another thread or two.

    I am not very religious.

    I do not wish to offend anyone with actual religious beliefs or faith.

    But I thought it might be interesting to get a sense of what various religions ACTUALLY say about pre-marital sexual relations between consenting adults.

    Let's leave the children out of it and animals and the dead too. Just the kind of sex consenting adults have with each other. Straight sex or gay sex; kinky, perverse or whatever; non-violent, consensual sex.

    For you to consider and discuss -- or not.

    Wow, I'm not very good at this. Perhaps we should ask Sarah Palin?

    In classical abrahamism and other cultures, premarital sex was impossible, as the sex act (more specifically the act of defloration) was the act of marriage

    I am with ya there! In high school I was on the kick of not having sex until I am married. Once I graduated and got into the real world that went away.

    I think pre-marital sex should definitely be a religious experience.

    People are getting married later in life so I suspect very very few "adults" are waiting for marriage. I just wish parents would encourage their kids to wait until they are mature enough to accept any possible consequences.When I discuss pre marital sex with my boys my "moral lesson" centers around the responsibilities of fatherhood; not mortal sin.
