Sex is the most important thing in life. Get as much as you can, with as many people as you can SEX IS NOTHING Sex is only meaningful when it’s pleasurable. Pleasure comes with variety Sex is an urge to be indulged freely Sex is the ultimate high Sex is the best way to express love Sex alone will give your life meaning and happiness Sex is a personal choice that affects no one else. Sex is only physical Sex is the only way to express love ANSWER: Neither!

It exaggerate its role in human existence The absolutization of what is partial was the error of Freud (psychoanalytical theory) Theological Teaching Sex has its proper place of exercise within marriage Sexuality is not purely biological nor exclusive The biological. psychological and spiritual characteristics which make a person a male or female find their origin in sexuality The sexual instinct is not all that he has; man possesses in a pre-eminent way understanding, choice, freedom

Human sexuality is an expression of the desire for union which fulfills the yearning to prolong oneself beyond one’s own life. The profound desire for paternity is integrated into human sexuality. Dehumanizing in Sexuality Using others as a means for one's one end If sexuality is understood outside the context of the spiritual nature of man, it ends up inhuman What is inhuman is infra natural, something lower than what is simply animal When sexuality is isolated from spirituality, one sees the other person as “a sexual object” instead of as “a beloved person” lust◊A purely carnal union deprived of the spirit of humiliates and reduces persons to the condition of “things” that have meaning only for as long as they satisfy or give pleasure It is important to remind those who consider sex as the highest expression of love between two persons that in the relationship between man and woman, “sexual submission can be love transferred to the corporeal sphere, it however, is not always a ‘proof’ of love, although often it is demanded as such.” Humanizing Sexuality If it is taken as a form of personal commitment and responsibility, a challenge to one's fidelity to love It is humanizing if it enables one to realize oneself as it brings the other to fulfillment Both attain mutual self-realization and untive self-fulfillemnt The Purpose of Sex: Unitive and Procreative Aspects Essential Elements of Human Sexuality a) The sexual instinct or tendency: -innate procreation)◊-theological (ordained towards an end -transcends psychologically (ordained towards another person away from self) does not need intelligence but is regulated by the latter b) Man is sexual -Though always present, sexuality is not everything c) Sex is an objective reality in accord with God’s plan for man; therefore, it is good in itself -Sex life ought to be regulated morally according to Natural Law -1st principle of sexual life: Marriage is the only natural way willed by God wherein sexual life may be exercised morally d) Sexuality if the biological vehicle for self-giving between man and woman affective and spiritual◊-Human love involves all the dimensions of being -Today the tendency is to dissociate love from sex -“Love” is used as a simple requisite to practice sex

e) The sexual instinct is ordained essentially to the propagation of the species, to the transmission of life -Therefore, the unitive and procreative aspect of sexual love must not be separated ALFRED KINSEY He sought to re-craft American girls sexually not as made in the image of God, but rather as “lower mammalian, primitive, uninhibited.” Current rates of sexual trauma reflects the success of his efforts. The Kinsey Grand Scheme 1. Encourage gay-activist movements, and establish homosexuality as a normal sexual orientation. 2. Promote widespread promiscuity to create a sexual anarchy. 3. Attack religion to undermine the Judeo-Christian concept of sin and eliminate the distinction between right and wrong. 4. Legalize aberrant sex acts to eliminate punishment for sex crimes. 5. Exploit childhood rebellion to alienate children from parents. Separate children from the protective traditional family structure. 6. Redefine FAMILY to break the model of a nuclear family with a mother and father. Sexual Revolution is designed to: -break down sexual inhibitions -invalidate sexual taboos -undermine sexual values The Fruits of Sexual Revolution 1. Increased violence, including rape. 2. Destruction of marriages. 3. Increased promiscuity. 4. Increased illegitimacy. 5. Exploding rates of venereal diseases. 6. Teenage pregnancy. 7. Abortion 8. Homosexuality SIECUS (Sex Information and Education Council of the United States) “SEX IS FOR FUN” “Enjoying what you do and do what you enjoy” Masturbation - sanction all forms that lead to orgasmic emission. Homosexuality - oral genital, oral-anal, self and mutual masturbation are normal and beneficial. SEX IS WHAT YOU ARE, NOT WHAT YOU DO! LOVE, not sex is the BIG DEAL! Sex is a TOTAL & UNCONDITIONAL self-giving between a married couple. Sex as God’s gift is a 3 in 1 power... Pleasure-giving Love giving (unitive) Life giving (Pro-creative) Violations on the Virtue of Chastity MASTURBATION PRE-MARITAL SEX HOMOSEXUALITY CONTRACEPTION Masturbation Means stimulating oneself sexually, so it is like having sex with oneself. What happens if one masturbates whenever one feels the urge ? Poor control of sexual feelings, not develop self possession. Develop an attitude of wanting self gratification – self centeredness. Tendency to seek sexual pleasure for oneself only. Weaken love commitment with future spouse. Pre-Marital Sex Sex is pleasurable only for a short term. Fear of being dumped by the man after he has taken everything from the girl. Is it true that sex builds up love ? Love is giving yourself for the love of others. Will premarital sex help you to become responsible people, able to exercise self control, self possession ? After premarital sex, parting or saying goodbye is painful and traumatic. Homosexuality State of the person being sexually drawn to members of the same sex. Homosexual acts – sexual acts performed with persons of the same sex. Latent – when sexual attraction is not activated into sexual actions with other persons (homosexual orientation) Active – when sexual attraction is activated into sexual actions with Causes of Homosexuality All solid evidence points to a behavioral origin. Counselors report that many youngsters declare themselves to be homosexual, not because they truly are, but because this is one way to gain their parents’ attention A prominent factor observed in male homosexual is the dominant mother and submissive father or reverse roles of parents.
