  • Isn't that something some religious sects do, like Hasidic Jews? Sex within the confines of marriage is totally appropriate for pleasure as well as procreation. God made you one flesh and expects you to meet each other's needs. At least, that's what us Christians believe.

  • it sounds like a boring, sad, lonely life to me. =( i'm with the first reply- sex is for pleasure within a married couple's relationship. not having sex unless you're trying to get pregnant is just wrong on soooo many levels.

  • strange cause the lord also wants you to have sex to bond or rather cleave unto each other. sex is for procreation but not to the extent this man is taking. the lord made our bodies to have sex to produce offspring, yes that is true(sex for procreation) but it's more within the confines of marriage.

  • I am Catholic and I would never tolerate sex just for procreation. If a man I was with had sex with me only when he wanted to have a baby, he would be served with divorce papers in a big hurry. Sex is a big part of a relationship, lack of sex has ruined marriages and relationships.
