Actually, if you take the Gnostic viewpoint, sex has a dual purpose....Reproduction and Ascension / Salvation.
The tradition is to have actual matrimonial intercourse while resonating love, and instead of committing the "animal spasm", the orgasm, one strongly guards those waters which have been blessed below and instead of releasing them, (which would holds the potential power to create an entirely new sentient being), one guides those (now blessed with love) waters up the spine.. al l33 vertebrae (33 yrs of Christ's life, 33 degrees of masonry) to the place of the skull (Golgotha) to baptize the head at the throne of god.. (the pineal gland)... which cascades hormones through the endocrine system causing a slow yet steady metamorphosis of the body into one of divine ability and immortality.
This is what all religions teach at the root level, albeit hidden in riddles and metaphor, for those with eyes to see.
And this, IMO, is why all corrupt religions decry this form of sex, and teach the opposite of truth, while practicing it in secret.

It's the "do it only with procreation in mind" attitude that negates the entire argument that the Bible is all for sex, in my opinion.
Communing with someone I love while accepting the possibility of babies sounds to me like taking a nice car ride into a tunnel, while knowing full well that there's a dead end in there and you aren't allowed to slow down. Pregnancy isn't a blessing for everyone, no matter how holy its supposed orchestrator was. It's one of my worst nightmares.
So, yeah. Sorry, religion, but I'm keeping at least three forms of birth control around if I ever choose to lose my virginity.edit on 24-6-2012 by EllaMarina because: (no reason given)

Sex was the Beginning. And you are right that sex is a natural function of human life, and also in Spiritual life. Only there there are no restrictions, and warm pools are all over for couples who wish to have sex. Sex is the universal language.
