Sex and Sexuality

Why do you think we as humans have demonized sex and Ourselves as sexual creatures?

This was a question a friend of mine asked me today.. and immediately I knew the blame could be pointed squarely on religion.
Almost every major religion frowns open things of a sexual nature... Its is almost as if Sex is ONLY for procreation.. and not recreation...

Is this right however?... should we be ashamed of things of a sexual nature... should we forever try to hide and deny that We are sexual beings (at least in public).
Thinking about it I can understand why religions developed rules and guidelines regarding Sex... it helped foster 'healthy' families as well as helping to control population growth...To an extent.

But now with the advent of contraceptives and and other nifty little devices.. it is possible for our society to enjoy sex with little fear of diseases or babies. This being the case.. has the restriction religions place on sex, become a precept based on an outdated principle?

Interestingly, I don't think so.. as my mother always said.. "Too much a one ting good fi nuttin". Sex, I believe should be treated with a sort of respect.. call me a romantic.. but I believe it is an ultimate expression of love between too ppl...
To ensure this respect remains for this most pleasurable of activities... it is the duty of religions to continue to show the way....

Mind you, most ppl wont wait till marriage, but the teachings of the church wont be forgotten and as a result, though a small miniscule voice,... there will be a part of them that sees it slightly differently...
Now for every rule there is an exception... but be it as it may I believe it is important for religions to continue to send a message re-enforcing the sacredness intercourse.

This leads to a delima.. how can one follow ones religion and still acknowledge & explore ones sexuality?
This is exceedingly difficult, as from the first day you entered church they stop just short of telling you Sex was of the devil..... hmmm
I of course cant agree with that sentiment.... however I am not sure what to believe...
I was reminded Sunday a good portion of one's walk with God requires sacrifice.... but where does the line between sacrifice and fanaticism start and end? Or is it that we should all be fanatics... mindless drones that cant think for ourselves?

Where should we who would follow or religion's teachings draw the line? Tuff Question.. and everyone has to answer that Question for themselves.

To Be Continued.....
