Is sexuality divinely sacrosanct?
Since the times humans set foot on earth sexuality has been the dominant part of natural mutation and selection leading to the process of human development. With the passage of time, without receiving any lessons to indulge in frolics of sexual orgies, sex has been a source of entertainment for times immemorial for age groups ripe enough to feel aroused and stimulated.
Religions seem to have played paramount and influential role in streamlining the chaotic engagement of sexual behaviour due to combination of circumstances resulting from social upheaval, material greed, exploitation, battles and wars. Bible is full of stories like the situation faced by Prophet Lot who according to Bible received divine revelations to warn people of his time to desist from actions termed as unnatural.
The Bible teacher, Sue BohlinSue Bohlin defines sex as she understands it in the light of Bible study and says "Sex is God's idea. He made it not only efficient for making babies, but pleasurable and deeply satisfying. He designed men's and women's body parts to complement each other. He created hormones to make everything work right and make us want to be sexual. Unlike animals whose mating behaviour is purely instinctive for the purpose of reproducing, human sexuality has several wonderful purposes. God means for all of them to be contained within marriage."
There's something very special about a couple's first time as curiosity, inquisitiveness, and pleasurable performance experience gives wondrous feeling. Love is patient, that's about as simple as it gets and we can learn the sincerity of our partner's love by their willingness, or lack thereof, to wait. The negative aspect of uncontrolled sexual behaviour is described as "some effects can be devastating". An unwanted pregnancy, a decision to have an abortion or placing a child for adoption, broken relationships with family and friends are a few possible outcomes we face when we choose to have sex ignoring the damaging consequences.
Bohlin adds that "recreation aspect of sex without recognizing that there is aspect procreation that allows pleasure of entertainment. Sex within marriage is pleasurable, and God designed it that way. God wants men and women to enjoy sexual activity within the confines of marriage". Recalcitrant irresistible sex with no patience would have far fewer sexually transmitted diseases, far fewer abortions, far fewer unwed mothers and unwanted pregnancies, and far fewer children growing up without both parents in their lives.
The "flesh trade" is termed as the oldest profession of the world and now due to population growth, the disparity in the ratio of women outnumbering men globally has made sex commercially a very viable preposition and created an industry worth billions. The freedom and emancipation guaranteed by laws makes it easy for men and women to indulge in any commercial contracts offering services in the form of prostitutes, mistresses, extra-marital sex, homo-sexuality, sodomy, pornography, child-sex (though clandestine where illegal) and above all incest which is common and prevalent.
Times of India reported (Aug 08, 2013) from Ludhiana (city of Indian Punjab) that "Lack of checks on social networking sites has emboldened shady elements on cyberspace to such an extent that they have started using these sites to promote flesh trade. There is a page on prostitution, which is being operated in Ludhiana. People from other cities are also uploading lurid pictures on the page and sharing contact information with each other." Some referred to the news as a very scary scenario and ´tip of the iceberg´.
Sadomasochism, also known as dominatrixes is a woman who takes a dominant role dealing with men or women, which can be verbal involving humiliating tasks, servitude and obedience. Dominatrix a feminine form of the Latin dominator, offering a service of strict female discipline and flagellation using implements such as whips, canes and birches, to chastise and punish her male or female clients connecting very closely to the practices of modern-day professional dominatrixes.
An appointment is referred to as a ‘session’ paid expensively to render services for each session, sometimes undressed partly in a particular attire, a black leather female catsuit or even mother naked to perform the job. Professional dominatrixes may offer sexual intercourse as part of their service to clients, obviously at a higher cost. The body language of the dominatrix is frequently represented by the use of strong, dominant body-language which is comparable to the dominant posturing in the animal world.
The poverty stricken India, were population has crossed one billion mark surpassing China’s population figure, has a large percentage of labour class men and women who work in construction companies. The poor people, generally a family unit works in multi-storey structures carrying bricks and mortar for the day and in the night watch a Mumbai "curry masala" film offering unfulfilled dreams of glamour and false hopes to indulge in the only entertainment, the sex, resulting in producing unwanted children who cannot be educated, fed properly or even get proper medical care.
The people of the book believe that God bestowed upon human beings huge power in the form of the brain to utilize the intellect sensibly as all other species do not enjoy such a privilege in a similar fashion. They also believe that God in His message conveys that if I had not gifted you with this power in order to differentiate between right and wrong, I would do everything Myself. We see every day the power of brain allowing humans achieve outstanding meritorious feats, milestones with such a progress in science and technology through knowledge and understanding the forces of nature.
The main purpose of sexual activity is reproduction so that the world carries on and if this activity did not have a flavour, characteristic of sweetness; taste of sensation pleasing to agreeable partners, it would lose its purpose looking drab, lacking spirit, desolate and dismal. The key is to enjoy sex, but the gift from nature has certain limitations and impatient overdoing can result in frustration and incompetence. Sex, they say, is sacred must be enjoyed and treated with respect.
"Research indicates that once an uncommitted couple gets involved in sexual intercourse, the relationship usually begins to end. They have reached the superficial end of the physical aspects of the relationship, and they have no particularly compelling reason to explore its depths." (Chip Ingram)
