Sexual Ethics

Sexuality and faith are deeply personal parts of our identities.

Religious beliefs can strongly influence sexual expression and behavior. For that reason, what's deemed moral and immoral, appropriate or inappropriate in bed (and with whom) can vary greatly from person to person.

Sex is always a hot button issue. In this collection, Patheos writers from numerous faiths and orientations put sexual ethics under a microscope.
