How do your spiritual beliefs influence your sex life?
As an evangelical Christian my spiritual beliefs are the driving force for my sexuality. I will be the first to admit that many Christian parents are afraid to teach their kids about sex so the kids usually get a message like, "sex is dirty, wrong, and disgusting; so save it for the one you love." Apparently people like that never read the Song of Solomon. The Bible teaches that sex is a gift that God has given us for procreation, intimacy, and pleasure. He designed this gift to be given within a lifelong marital commitment. I do not see Christianity as a list of rules governing my sex life but rather I see it as a loving God trying to teach us what is best for us. There is my belief, what's yours?
