The Purpose of Sex

What’s love got to do, got to do.


We’ve Talked About The Goodness of Sex

  • Our sexuality involves our emotional and spiritual makeup.
  • Sexual activity involves respect:
  • *looking at ourselves as creations of God *looking at others as personsnot objects to be used.

Commandments: Six and Nine

  • 6) You shall not commit adultery.
  • 9) You shall not covet your neighbor’s wife.
  • These commandments serve as safeguards of God’s intention for human sexuality.
  • They warn against the disrespectful and harmful actions involving sex.

Why is Sexual Intercourse for Marriage?

Because sex is an intimateact.

Husband and wife give themselves totally and exclusively to each other in marriage.

This act of total self-giving represents their relationship:

In marriage, they have committed themselves to each other in a exclusive covenant of love.

  • God created our sexual makeup to bea sign of that covenant.

But if we're in love and not married, isn't sex ok?

“Love, to be real, must cost- it must hurt- it must empty us of self.”

-Blessed Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Though lust may seem overwhelming at times,

it is no match for the beautyof authentic love.


TWO Purposes of Sex!

Sex is a natural gift given to us by God

“You and me baby ain’t nothin’ but mammals, so let’s do it like they do on the Discovery Channel.”

-Bloodhound Gang, The Bad Touch

“In the Bible, the man-woman couple is not meantto be simply a preservation of the species,as is the case for the other animals. Insofar as it was called to become the image and likeness of God, itexpresses in a bodily, tangible waythe face of God, which is love.”

-Cardinal Carlo Martini

family planning and responsible parenthood
Family Planning and Responsible Parenthood
  • Church teaches that NATURALmeans of birth regulation are morally permissible.


  • Birth control used by couples must always be used in harmony with the two ends of marriage:

Unitive and Procreative dimensions of sexual sharing.

Any procedure that separates sexual love making from the act of potential procreation

or the union of souls

inhibits the dignity of the human person.

Christian Doctrine states that sexual intercourse can only be moral and according to God’s plan

if “each and every marriage act”

remains open to the possibility of life.
