Sex must be so mind-blowing and awesome that it cannot be everyday, reflecting
the ebb and flow of desire over time.The same practices that are bed-shaking
and orgasmic in marriage are flatout hurtful prior to marriage. Such
understandings of sex and marriage verge on the magical, transforming pain into
pleasure. Our abstinence friend renders sex within marriage uniquely holy while
considering it blasphemous anywhere else. Just as earlier generations of
Christians may have ...

On these grounds, he extends the notion of the Christian or holy household
beyond Christian marriage and monastic life, to any household in which that care
is found, in which love of God and love of neighbour are hallmarks, including

represented by the belief that anti-sex Asceticism equals Holiness, which is the

antisex Asceticism is necessary for Holiness, thanks to the influence of
Humanism's positive view of human sexuality. Now, the success of the Sexual
Revolution has ...

as a regula, a rule for life, and therefore the answer to the problem of decaying
morality. But Christians were to practice an even more rigorous ethic. The
