The ultimate purpose of sex is to cement a loving and productive bond between two persons. “The Kiss” by Auguste Rodin 1886

“The body is not meant for fornication;
it is for the Lord
and the Lord for the body . . .
A man who lies with a prostitute
is one body with her,
since the two, as Scripture says,
become one flesh . . .
Keep away from fornication.
All other sins are committed
outside the body;
but to fornicate is to sin
against your own body.
Your body, you know is a
temple of the Holy Spirit
who is in you because you
received the Spirit from God.”
from Paul’s Letter to the Corinthians 6,13-19.
