Month after month for more than a year this post gets 10 or 20 times as many hits as any other post on my blog and I'm kind of curious about that.

BYU and Mormons in general make the news fairly frequently for sex stuff. So here goes. As I said, premarital sex is still taboo for Mormons.

It also teaches that sexual relations within the framework of opposite-sex marriage is healthy, necessary, and ordained of God. In contrast with some orthodox Christian movements, sexuality in the Church's theology is neither a product of original sin nor a "necessary evil". In accordance with the law of chastity , LDS Church doctrine bars sexual activity outside of heterosexual marriage.
