Sex

On the ROCOR Yahoo! group I belong to, Rdr Constantine Wright (of whom I know some of you have heard) is currently claiming that not only did the first-created man and woman engage in sexual intercourse in Paradise, but that married persons will continue to do so, albeit without passion, in the life of the age to come. This flies in the face of everything I've ever read about the subject in Scripture and the Fathers (on neither of which, I admit, am I an expert). Does anyone know where he might have got such an idea?

I think Philip Sherrard in his book entitled (if I remember correctly) Christianity and Eros, says something similar.

A good article to counter this can be found at

Thanks, Philip, I'll look up those references! Fr John Whiteford's comment was he kept expecting Constantine to quote the 'Kama Sutra'!

A depressing prospect indeed.
