In one episode of the Simpsons, Homer is finding himself attracted to another woman. Not wanting to betray his relationship with his wife, Marge, he goes about his day he telling himself, “Think unsexy thoughts, think unsexy thoughts.”
There are three views of human sexuality.*
There is the church view which says that we are to be like angels. We should all be like Homer, telling ourselves to think unsexy thoughts.
There is the world that hand tells us to be beasts. Sex is evolutionary and biological. If it feels good do it. What could possibly go wrong?
The Bible presents the third view. In the Bible, it says that we are above the beasts but we are also lower than the angels.
*With a nod to Roger Walters who pointed out the three views to me.
