When considering issues surrounding sex we should always remember that sex is a form of love.
And as such sex should be respected as part of life and not condemned.
Jesus never condemned sexual expression.
In fact he was known for eating with prostitutes and sinners.
Contrast this with the Neoplatonic writings of St. Paul which condemn the body (and sex) in favor of the spirit.
It is the influence of these writings which has been so damaging for the Church.
Most modern people don't think that they make sense and reject Christianity as a consequence.
But it is when compassion is placed above morality that we experience true spirituality.
And this applies particularly to sex.
