Along with that, the desire to glorify a divine being resonates within many as well. In early Abrahamic faiths, sex was commemorated as a source of holiness and sanctification when used in a proper manner. These proper manners consist of three points: 1. Only between man and woman (condemns homosexual partnerships) 2. The transmission of human life (condemns contraceptives) and 3. Solely within a lawful marriage. Therefore, it would be a struggle and somewhat contradicting to attempt in separating religion from sex. Christian fundamentalists argue that the act of sexual intercourse outside or before a marriage is considered to be unethical and morally wrong, with that they claim sexual acts are only to be carried out as a means for procreation, not pleasure. Religion has always played a significant role in what is deemed right or wrong pertaining to sexual acts, and although many may claim that revolutionary change has come within the church’s dealing on sexual morality, the Catholic church still strongly holds most of its traditional values.
Act-centered sexual ethics is a very controversial topic in which all acts that defy the word of God are seen as unnatural or immoral. Humans are morally obliged to use their reasoning to determine what the laws are and then to act in conformity with them. Humans have the natural drive to eat, drink, sleep and procreate. These actions are in consensus with a natural law for species to live and procreate. Thus activities in conformity with such a law are morally seen as moral. With the church playing a big role in the relative morality of sexual ethics and the acts which are seen as dissolute the question of “why hasn’t the Church changed their views on non-procreated sex” comes about.

Biblical writing tends to have strict laws about sex and sexuality and how it was expressed and universally accepted. The Pauline Epistles, or Paul’s views, had unique views on sex because he completely distrusted gender as a whole and because he believed that there would be an apocalypse. Many of Paul’s ideas were widely accepted back than because they explained may things that people could not, for instance it explains homosexuality. Today, the laws are seen differently and in some cases interpreted much more literally than they were back then.
