Who said anything about sex for procreation only? That is ridiculous. That's not what God wants, that's why He made sex so much fun, desirable & easy.<quoted text>
Now that we have prophylactics, can't the church say that procreation should only happen within marriage, but sex outside of marriage is OK, as long as it's safe sex? The whole idea that sex is only for procreation is patently ridiculous and not followed anyway. Sex should be encouraged for fun and emotional bonding.
Sex IS encouraged for fun & bonding.
