Religions don't teach that sex is bad. They teach that sexual immorality is bad. Engaging in sex for pleasure only, instead of for procreation, is a sin (according to religion), because sex was created for one reason: to propagate the species.

That's not how I interpreted Solomon's Song. To me, it seemed more like the woman was constantly rejecting poor ole Solomon, and he got to the point of being obsessed with her.

celibacy is not in christianity... true christianity not that roman catholic bs that is pawned off as it does not approve.
The church since it was hijacked by Rome has used fear and damnation to hell to manipulate people but too many people are too dense to see this so they just say "RELIGION BAD RELIGION CONTROL RELIGION EVIL NOT MISUSED IT BAD RAWR"
Bible never says not to have sex, it actually says to fill the earth... so to fill earth you need to have sex... hmm
It does however preach about promiscious sex and other things.. which in reality it makes sense since there are stds and unplanned pregnancies... also when you just have sex to have sex many times one person ends up wanting more than sex and having to go through the whole emotional deal that comes along with it.. you usually end up having a hard time focusing on other aspects of your life because of the emotional drain. if you do not have an emotional drain then you must have problems if causing pain on another person at such a deep level does not affect you at all. .
I have verified all of this and finally understand. sex with friends eventually ruins friendships even if it is never said out loud I used to think as you but i grew up. i found a woman I devote myself too completely and love and enjoy sex. After it was all said and done I would much rather had kept myself till i found the right one instead of being a butterfly.
so yeah bro not sure wtf you are talking about.
