Certain characteristics are innate in humans, say expression through various emotions that come naturally to us or perhaps hardwired in our minds from our very birth. Nobody taught us to cry or laugh or even frown. But what happened as soon as we reached our teens ?

Who told us that we've developed into mature beings capable of something more than we'd always imagined ? Why did we get excited at the first sight of po*n ? Although, our thoughts were modified by interactions with social and physical environment, how did the drive for sex originate ? Were they driven by our genes or the mental activity ?

Most religions have sought to address morality that arise from human sexuality. Within the Islamic faith, sexual desire is considered to be a natural urge that should not be suppressed, although, the concept of free sex not being accepted. Any of such urges to be fulfilled responsibly, say marriage.

The Bible states within the first commandment to procreate, but the misconception about sex being shameful or sinful contradicted. Also, it states that it is a sin to engage in homosexuality, bestiality, iciest, fornication, adultery, rape and viewing po*nography. It is believed that those who are sexually immoral are separated from God and will not share in God's inheritance upon death. To engage in any of these sinful sexual activities in the past, punishment being death.

Traditional Catholics said that all forms of sex were not directly open to conception is sinful, and the use of contraceptives, masturbation, and homosexual acts be considered intrinsically disordered.

However, Hinduism emphasizes that sex is only appropriate between husband and wife in which satisfying sexual urges through sexual pleasure being a considerable duty of marriage. Any sex before marriage considered to interfere with their intellectual development should be avoided.

The Buddhists speaks of moderation in everything being the key to nirvana. And the human sexuality somewhere in middle on a continuum from extreme puritanism to extreme permissiveness . Buddhism does not believe in sin, there is only the skilled and unskilled and pleasure being neither.

Why does religion intervene between human mind and environment ?

Sex is a natural urge to procreate among animals. With humans it can be an indulgence for pure sensual pleasure too. Often humans become enslaved by certain sensual pleasures and habits but after a while they want to be free from it.
