Is Christianity sex-positive or sex-negative? Which religion has the best take on the topic?
I'd say it is Muslimism. They fuck boys and animals.
But are the animals Muslim too?
Really though, Muslim is very anti-sex, more so than I am even (that's scary).
Of those religions that I know about, Wiccan is probably the most pro-sex.
Why are you anti-sex? Religious convictions?
I just hate it. My religion is indifferent on the subject.
I would say sex negative! I would have to go with kitten's answer on the postive end.
The whole thing about waiting until you are married just gets me, you are pretty much gambling on how enjoyable your sex life is going to be.
What's most ironic is that the Christian Right is usually at the forefront of decrying "promiscuity" by teenagers and young adults, while simultaneously (and necessarily) asserting that they lack the capacity to make informed judgments and decisions. Of course, it's increasing average marriage ages that have made "fornication" far more common, because you can't reasonably expect people to remain virgins until they're 30.
It's also worth noting that the average divorce rate has risen as the average marriage age has, and while that doesn't necessarily imply a causative link between the two, it certainly casts doubt on a very strong causative link between marriage by younger people and failure and divorces. More importantly, the divorce rates of 18 to 20 year olds are lower than those of their immediate elders, which indicates yet again that condemnations of youth as reckless and irresponsible are charges that would be more accurately applied to their elders.
Christianity is sex-positive inside marriage. Outside marriage is a no-no. Inside marriage, anything goes.
Another amusing tidbit: Most of the "domestic partnerships" that modern Christians attack as immoral would have constituted common law marriages in earlier times, and would have been honored by earlier Christians.
