    If God didn't want us to have a lot of sex, he wouldn't have made it feel so good, be so much fun or so addictive. If God didn't want us to have a lot of sexual partners he wouldn't have made us be so sensorily attractive to each other.

    1. Anon: A juvenile argument! Sex is an appetite. Just as with food, too much is not good for the health. (Watch 'Supersize Me' if you need proof of the dangers of over indulgence.) God created us with certain desires to bring us pleasure AND to perpetuate the species. Too much emphasis on either half of that equation is a sin of immaturity and sinfulness. We are rational animals. We know how to rein in our appetites both for our self-interest and for the welfare of others. It's part of being civilized.

      Fr. Tim
