There were post-Christ priests those to blame for raising such sex frenzy in the Middle Ages. At the time, the aggro on stigmatization and fear went so far out as deemed by some sex as sinful even within marriage itself. The medieval craze got so overboard that, at some occasion, there was established frequency rate for having sex within marriage.
Follows suit, having sex was forbidden on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, prohibited three days prior communion, forty days before Christmas and Easter and during any given penitence stage. None the less, there was a certain freedom about, since the days in which was not prohibited, sex was not entirely compulsory... the utmost sins, are horse guess if you will, prostitution and adultery, obviously.
Moreover blaming on masturbation is something more recent. The Medieval Church deemed it a sin from being procreation detached pleasure.
Then latter in 1710, by the issue of Onania would the real frantic set forth in regard to the allegedly consequences of the so-called “self-abuse”. In seeking to jack up the sales of a patented medicine of his own would the author refer to a certain thread of the genesis were Oman gets pulverized by the hand of God because he’d prefer spilling his semen on to the ground to bearing a son to his widowed sister in law, in accordance to what the law of Levites demanded.
That’s utterly out of hand, given that Oman got killed because of lagging familial bonds, other than “spilling his semen”. Furthermore, a made believe fad in that Oman used to masturbate when was truly given the practice of coitus interruptus a go. Otherwise, Onanism remains synonymous of masturbation.
Onania got widely spread from then on so too the blame on masturbation grown by leaps and bounds. So did those Victorian pundits sworn by the terrible consequences of masturbation, blindness, madness and even death itself. Conveying on castration as the cure for children and those mentally deranged.
Given the righteousness of both Judaism and Christian religion views on all of which regarded sex, the treatises of Islam might seem as if “permissive”. Even the stingiest of followers of Islam is eligible to stay in paradise, whereupon every single sexual need comes fulfilled by 72 beautiful huris, on top of all his widowed earthlings.
Thus Hinduism appraises that the men have four primarily objectives in life, of which is karma for one, in other words, the satisfaction for desire.
Through sex-linked ecstasy reaches out the man for spiritual enlighten. In on an attempt need basis, several pundits wrote pieces on sexual approach techniques. The most prominent of them all is the treatises of Kama Sutra, wrote by the sage Vatsyayana.
Having Protestants Luther, Caulvin, and Knox revitalized up the first and foremost unflinching stances of the Church, latter backed up on by the hypocrite of the Victorian age’s prudish.
It comes of no surprise, by all means still today, even amongst those nonreligious folks; there notions regarding sex as a lewd act still remained.
However, there’s no doubt about as to how is possible to overcome such impairments. Countless couples replaced already, yet successfully, some such backwards leniency towards sex by some more positive prone outlook, without any drawback into their ethical lilt.
In short, there would only take acceptance towards sex as usual partake as joyful and upbeat, by chasing away the ghosts of bygone eras.
