I sincerely hope you're being sarcastic. Religions perceive sex as a necessary evil, to be used for procreation only. Actually, most religions go even further and condone the concept of love (and by extension sex) only if it subject to some kind of religious regulation mechanism, because anything else gnaws away at the oppressive stranglehold religion has over everyday life. In order to exist, religion needs to have a monopoly on everything fulfilling and meaningful.

Huh? Apparently you haven't read the biblical Song of Solomon. To quote from Chapter 7 (NIV translation):

1 How beautiful your sandaled feet,
              O prince's daughter!
              Your graceful legs are like jewels,
              the work of a craftsman's hands.

  2 Your navel is a rounded goblet
              that never lacks blended wine.
              Your waist is a mound of wheat
              encircled by lilies.

  3 Your breasts are like two fawns,
              twins of a gazelle.

  4 Your neck is like an ivory tower.
              Your eyes are the pools of Heshbon
              by the gate of Bath Rabbim.
              Your nose is like the tower of Lebanon
              looking toward Damascus.

  5 Your head crowns you like Mount Carmel.
              Your hair is like royal tapestry;
              the king is held captive by its tresses.

  6 How beautiful you are and how pleasing,
              O love, with your delights!

  7 Your stature is like that of the palm,
              and your breasts like clusters of fruit.

  8 I said, "I will climb the palm tree;
              I will take hold of its fruit."
              May your breasts be like the clusters of the vine,
              the fragrance of your breath like apples,

  9 and your mouth like the best wine.

That doesn't sound like "necessary evil" to me. I'd say it sounds rather enthusiastic. :)

This is almost insightful, save one thing:

The executives, when they make money, don't take the cash home and stuff it under their mattresses. They invest it, re-injecting the money into the economy in hopes of making more. Should they make the amount they make? I don't know, I'll leave that for another discussion. But you can't say that money is lost.
