What Is the Bible’s View on Matters of Sex?

For many Catholics, the very idea or thought of Mary’s having sexual intercourse with Joseph, her husband, is unthinkable, unimaginable, and shocking. This is because the whole attitude of the Catholic church concerning sex and sexual intercourse is that it isn't even to be spoken of, as the average Catholic has the impression that a good Catholic person cannot really be holy if he or she has intercourse, even within wedlock. But are marriage and holiness incompatible? What does the Bible teach or say?

Christians Warning Against Sexual Immorality

Sexual Immorality: (Heb. zanah; Gr. porneia) A general term for immoral sexual acts of any kind: such as adultery, prostitution, sexual relations between people not married to each other, homosexuality, and bestiality. Sensuality, debauchery, licentiousness, lewdness: (Gr. aselgeia) This is being completely unrestrained in our moral attitudes and behaviors, with the inference of sexual licentiousness. This is one who indulges in sensual pleasure without any regard for morality.
