Sex—Thank you God for making procreation such a pleasurable experience! Unfortunately, your practical, pleasurable gift is frequently abused and has become the nucleus of mental processing, thus replacing the brain—at least for one gender anyway. Men from all walks of life destroy their opportunities and injure countless innocents because they think with their penises, or is that spelled penae? I am sure that was not your intention, but evolution seems to have shrunk the brain and enlarged the prostrate and its surrounding appendages. Of course, as woman I enjoy engaging in sex, but I have definite pre-requisites—my male partner must also be my marriage partner. I am a romantic. I want the foreplay to be candlelight, love phrases, and soft stroking. Sex should be more about making love, than about ******* someone! I don’t want to imply that I don’t enjoy a good orgasm because I do! However, when the foreplay scenario is not met, there's an awful lot of faking going on!
I expect to be called a prude, but I don’t agree with having sex for sex’s sake unless procreation is the intent! I do realize, of course, that we are animals and that we have spontaneous physical reactions that trigger increased blood flow to parts of the anatomy upon biological and/or emotional stimulation. But, we are also civilized animals with the capacity to reason. That makes us unique in the animal kingdom and should help us to make responsible decisions about our pursuit of carnal needs. Responsible sex is a private matter between two consenting adults who have a reason for having sex other than raw animal instincts and insatiable desires. Furthermore, I definitely know that the act of sex was intended to procreate, so I should never be surprised that if, after engaging in sex, I discovered that I had procreated, nor should I ever consider that I had the right to end the life that I created! This provides even a stronger argument for sex being engaged in by consenting adults! For me, sex is not synonymous with any four letter word—unless the four letter word is love or kids!
